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.
