Throughout the centuries your name, Hodges, occurred in many records, manuscripts and documents but not always with your exact spelling. From time to time the surname was spelt Hodge, Hodges, and these variations in spelling frequently occurred, even between father and son. Scribes and church officials, frequently spelt the names phonetically. As a result the same person would be recorded differently on birth, baptismal, marriage and death certificates.

Howell Hodges of Pitt County North Carolina who died in 1781 (DAR # 131350) was my 5th great grandfather. According to some websites Howell is shown to be a descendant (2nd great grandson) of Christopher Branch who died 1681 and is a Jamestowne Society Qualifying Ancestor. These same websites show Christopher Branch as a descendant (18th great grandson) of King Henry II of England and Ida de Toeni (Tosny) through their illegitimate son William Longespée, 3rd Earl of Salisbury. I would like to know if this true. If anyone has information pertaining to this lineage I would appreciate a response.
I am trying to find information about William Welcome Hodges, father to Samuel Harvey Hodges 1801-1832.
