From "Genealogical Record of the Hodges Family of New England":
RICHARD HODGES, HOGGE, HOGG, and possibly HODGE and HOAG, appears in on ly one entry (witnes s to a deed, July 7, 1645) under the guise of Hodge s. In all the others so far found, his na me is written Hogge or Hogg, a nd there is a possibility of its having been pronounced eithe r Hodge or H oag and spelled in one of these ways by the next generation. He was a t ailor an d lived in Boston from 1637 to about 1652. His residence before a nd after this period is unk nown. Perhaps the family moved to Connecticu t, becoming Hodge, or possibly to Newbury, Mass. , assuming the name of H oag; or perhaps Richard was a member of the First Church in Boston , whe re four of his children were baptized, in each case being called the ch ild of "our bro ther Richard Hogge." His wife's name was JOAN. On Jan'y 7 , 1639/40, he was granted a great l ot for 5 heads (20 acres) at the Mou nt, i.e. Mount Wollaston, now Braintree. He was made fre eman May 13, 16 40. He lived on the east side of Washington street, on the 3rd lot sout h o f Milk street, where he had a house and garden which he sold on 21 A ugust 1645 to John Lake . In the Book of Possessions, compiled about 165 2, Richard Hogg is the only person mentione d as owning land in Boston w hose name can be twisted into any resemblance of Hodges.
