Origins of surname
This name started out as a pet form of Roger, with its origins in hrod = 'renown' and geri = 'spear'. The Norse personal name at the root was Hrodtgeirr.
Hodges is first found in Jersey church registers in 1633, when Henry, the illegitimate son of Joan, was baptised in St Clement.
There is another isolated record for the marriage of Mary Hodges and Edouard Fisher in St Lawrence in 1727.
The name under its various spellings began to appear regularly in Jersey records in the last decade of the 18th century. The baptism of William, the son of Samuel and Elizabeth Hodges, in St Helier in 1798 is the earliest record in a sequence for several families into the 19th century.
