HODGINS Family History

This name is the patronymic (i.e. meaning "son of") form of the diminutive "Hodge", itself a pet form of the personal name "Roger", introduced into Britain by the Normans after 1066 and combining with the pre-existing Anglo-Saxon "Hrodgr". The English often created pet forms of French names beginning with "R" into one with an "H", it being an easier sound to pronounce, so we have "Hobb" from Robert, "Hick" from Richard and "Hodge" from Roger. The name development has included "Richard Hoggekynes" (1445, Norfolk), Robert Hodgekin (1524, Suffolk), and Charles Hodgskines (1690, Shropshire).
