The Hodgin name is an important part of the history of the ancient Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. Hodgin is derived from the personal name Roger. The surname is based upon the pet form Hodge. The name Roger is of Old Norman origin and came to England shortly after the Norman Conquest of 1066. Many names came to England in this way, as King William the Conqueror encouraged the immigration of skilled tradesmen into his newly conquered country. The name Roger can be loosely translated as "fame-spear." Names based upon military prowess were quite popular in the early medieval period.

Hodgin Early Origins



The surname Hodgin was first found in Northumberland where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

The Great Migration



To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Hodgin family emigrate to North America: Thomas Hodgins who settled in New England in 1654; Margaret Hodgins settled in New York in 1823 along with Henry and James.
