How certain are you that parents were Edward and Charlotte

The only birth reg I can find at that time for George Edward Hodges is
George Edward Hodges
Sept qtr 1855
Brighton
2b 170

and then 1861
shows
18 frederick St
Brighton
William Hodges head 28 Porter Walworth Surrey
Charlotte wife 25 Brighton Sussex
George E son 5 Brighton Sussex
Charlotte daughter 11mths Brighton Sussex
Thomas H petty Lodger U 21 porter Durham hamsterley
RG9 598 36 25

Suz
Thornhill, Cresswell, Sisson, Harriman, Cripps, Eyre, Walter, Marson, Battison, Holmes, Bailey, Hardman, Fairhurst Noon-mainly in Derbys/Notts-but also Northampton, Oxford, Leics, Lancs-England

having read your previous posts, I think the family I found in 1861 may be the correct family -and either an error has been made on the census form and the enumerator has entered William instead of Edward -or  (I noticed this family tend to use their middle names) he is William Edward/Edward William????

It looks like some tragedy befell this family

Maybe George Edward (the son) was not the child of Charlotte -maybe Edward/William had been married/widowed before daughter Charlotte was born????

Hope you can follow my train of thought???

1871 shows
New orphan House
Ashley Down and Stapleton
Gloucester
CHARLOTTE HODGES 10 Scholar Brighton Sussex
RG10 2575 73 2

this is possibly your Charlotte

and in 1881
West End
Esher
Surrey
Thomas Hodges Head W 74 Pensioner of Police Force Esher Surrey
CHARLOTTE HODGES Granddaughter U 20 Brighton Sussex
RG11 839 15 24

in 1871
West End Esher Surrey
Thomas Hodges 64 Pensioner metropolian police force Esher Surrey
Susan wife 70 Oxon Thame
EDWARD HODGES grandson 15 Errand boy Brighton Sussex
RG10 863 28 47

could this be George Edward using his middle name??

also Thomas and Susan had a son of correct age to be George and Charlotte's father
1851
St james Rd
Croyden
Thomas Hodges Head 44 Police Constble Esher Surrey
Susan wife 50 Oxon heazesy?
EDWARD son 18 ag lab Newington Surrey
John son 14 errand boy Newington Surrey
HO107 160 1480 9

then
1841
Scarbrook Hill
Croyden
Thomas hodges 30 Police Constable yes
Susan 40 no
EDWARD 8 yes
Emma 5 yes
John 4 yes
Ann 2 yes
Ann McQueen 50 Seamstress Ireland
HO107 1078 37 16

I think the purchase of birth certs of George Edward and Charlotte is necessary to be certain of their parentage

Hi Suzy

Many thanks for your time on this it's been a great help. Yes you are right about the 1881 census which shows Charlotte with Thomas Hodges Police force this is my family. I agree with you I think I will need to get both certificates to make sure. It would be interesting to find out if Ann Mc Queen seamstress in 1841 census  has any connection. Ive not passed this name before and its always interesting to find out a new family branch


Kind regards
