Origins Available: Borderlands, English


The ancient Anglo-Saxon surname Hodge came from the baptismal name Roger which was nicknamed Hodge. As the naming tradition grew in Europe baptismal names began to be introduced in many countries. Baptismal names were sometimes given in honor of Christian saints and other biblical figures. There are very few Christian countries in Europe that did not adopt surnames from these religious figures.

Hodge Early Origins



The surname Hodge was first found in Yorkshire where the first records of the name were found in the Yorkshire Poll Tax Rolls of 1379. That rolls had a multitude of listings including: Johannes Hodgeson; Thomas Hogge; Johannes Hoggeson; Ebbota Hoggese and Ricardus Hoge. The last entry was listed as a servant of Roger (Hodge.)

Hodge Spelling Variations



The English language only became standardized in the last few centuries; therefore, spelling variations are common among early Anglo-Saxon names. As the form of the English language changed, even the spelling of literate people's names evolved. Hodge has been recorded under many different variations, including Hodge, Hodges and others.

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Hodge or a variant listed above:

Motto

Motto



The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Dant lucem crescentibus orti
Motto Translation: Rising from the crescents they give light.
