Background: English Patronymic name from the name Hodge, which was derived from the given name Roger. Roger came to England as Rogier courtesy of the conquering Normans. The common nickname for ROGER ‘fame, spear’; the name was made popular after the Norman Conquest by Roger of Montgomery who distinguished himself at the Battle of Hastings.

In reference to Hodge Hill Common: a precious piece of undeveloped land around the junction of the Coleshill Road and Bromford Road. Hodge is probably the family name of a medieval landowner, but this was also a by-name of Roger, used as a patronising nickname for an agricultural labourer, ie. ‘a country bumpkin’.

Variations: Hodge, Hudge, Hodgin, Hodgen, Roger, Hodges, Hodgeson

Discussion of this family is welcomed.
