The Hodgkins in our family tree were a farming family from Drigg and Irton, both in Cumberland. Luckily a great number of this family wrote wills which have survived as a reference source, also the Drigg parish records go back to 1631, which helped in sorting out families.
At the top of our Hodgkin tree is Edward Hodgkin who died in 1623 at Drigg. His wife Dorothy left a will naming five children, sons Richard, John and Christopher, and daughters Annas Walker and Jane Askew.
Christopher married and had eight children. His wife’s name was Jennet, but as we have not found their marriage we do not know her surname.
Of these children, their son William, who was born in Drigg in 1659, married Sarah Ponsonby, also of Drigg, in 1709. William and Sarah had six children, their daughter Hannah married Isaac Leech at Drigg in 1737.
William died in 1728 at Bridgestones, Drigg, a farm which was associated with the Hodgkins for many years. When William died, his two youngest children Richard and Sarah were very young, his will instructed his wife Sarah to bring up and educate them both.
