« on: Saturday 27 September 08 01:39 BST (UK) »
Hi guys -

out of interest is anybody on here related to the Hodgkiss's

The hodgkiss's Travelled around Brewood, Penkridge, Cannock and into Wolverhampton.

Alot of them made Besoms as a living, and Hawkers.

I know they married women with the maiden names Smith and Lovell.

My hodgkiss line come from Wolverhampton, Brewood, Bishops wood, Cannock that sort of area. Travelling backwards and forwards.

I havent found any yet in Shrewsbury/Madely. But obv this isnt to far from me. There wasn't and still isnt alot of Hodgkiss's about. And im sure that we must all be related, but it could be from a long long time ago.

Hi there, my mothers fathers family are the Hodgekiss's. My grandad came from the Shareshill area and then moved to Brewood.  The Hodgekiss's in Penkridge were Alf Hodgekiss who lived up Goodstation Lane was my grandads uncle, then there was? He was the gravedigger in Penkridge and was married to lil and had daughters Denise and Sharon, he was my grandads second cousin. I don't know if this helps you any, or is related.

Hi,

I was wondering if the people who have posted on this thread are still around?  I'm descended from the Hodgkiss family on my Dad's side.  My great, great grandfather William Hodgkiss was born in Penkridge in1853 but changed his name to Hodgkinson when he married in Rugeley in 1871, as did various other male members of the family during the 1800s.

My 3x great grandfather came from Brewood, born 1824.  His name was Aaron and he had an older brother called James born in 1821, also born in Brewood.  Their parents were James and Kerenhappuch.  He married Mary Hodgkiss whose father was called William.  I'm thinking they may be related to your family line, Hodgkiss.  Would love to hear from anyone, especially as I'm struggling to sort it all out.  Another RootsChat member did some great work on suggestions for their connections but I don't have anything concrete yet.

I also have a Edward Hodgkinson in the family and I'm trying to find out if he is connected to the James who married Kerenhappuch as he was born around the same time (1796)in Brewood. Edwards's granddaughter, Maria Haycock, marries William Hodgkinson.  William and Maria are my great, great grandparents.  If anyone has any insights or connections I'd love to hear from you.

Just to add

John Hodgkiss, a salt hawker, from Wolverhampton appears in the Worcestershire Chronical in 1881 (travelling with a woman named Sophia) and then again in 1888.

Jane Hodgkiss, a broom hawker, belonging to Wolverhampton had her purse stolen in 1881, it was reported in the  Staffordshire Sentinel.

and

Annie Hodgkiss, aged 63 a hawker, of no fixed abode, who, making her 134th appearance (for drinking), was sentenced in Birmingham in 1933. That was reported in the  Birmingham Daily Gazette.

also

Charged for allowing a horse to stray, Richard Hodgkinson, a hawker, Uttoxeter (Uttoxeter is a market town in Staffordshire, England, close to the border with Derbyshire) in 1892 as reported in the Derby Daily Telegraph.

Hopefully the others pickup your topic again Rachel H
