On the 1901 Census Eliza is living with Thomas her son, her place of birth is High Ercall, Shropshire as it is in the other Census info I have given you. That's why I think it's the same family as you are looking for.

There doesn't appear to be Shropshire births for (as per 1861)

William Hodgkiss 8
Martha Hodgkiss 6
Mary A Hodgkiss   3

Perhaps John and Eliza 'adopted' these children.

Have found the above births recorded with the surname Hotchkiss mmn Ferrington.

All the census information found indicates that Eliza is the mother of Thomas but as there is only one birth for a Thomas Hodgkiss in 1849, Madeley (no mmn recorded) and then a death/burial in Madeley of a one year old Thomas Hodgkiss in 1850 I do question where is the birth record for Thomas Hodgkiss living with John and Eliza. It would appear that the birth records for the other children with John and Eliza were registered with mmn Ferrington.

I would be tempted to purchase the birth and death cert as mentioned above to confirm or rule out this Thomas.
