Appointed Recorder of Ludlow about Jan 1851.

Described himself as “Master Sup (T Of India) (...)” in 1881 census.
He had chambers at 3 Pump Court, Temple throughout his legal career.
Wrote a book “Rating of Railways”, advertised in 1851 in The Jurist.
Interesting that his son Bertram went on to build railways, and his grandson Michael was very interested in railway engineering and history.
In 1865 he edited the sixth edition of (his future father in law) Henry Drury’s Arundines Cami, a collection of translations into Latin and Greek verse by different Cambridge men.[S:92]
See Solicitors Journal February 28 1857 leader article describing Henry Hodgson as a “round peg in square hole” in his role as Master of the Queen’s Bench.
He was a talented amateur watercolour artist. Did he have any contact with his great uncle, John Frederick Taylor who was President of the Royal Watercolour Society (or Old Watercolour Society as it was then known) 1858-70?
Presumably the Henry John Hodgson, gent, of 18 Patriot Square, Bethnal Green, who was insured by the Sun Fire Office on 14 November 1838.
Lived at 35 Gt Cumberland Place, Hyde Park in May 1859. (Inscription in Charlotte’s common-place book)
Lived 1861-1878 at 10 Hanover Terrace, Regent’s Park.
His next door neighbour in 1861 when living at 10 Hanover Terrace was Anthony Salvin the architect, famous for restoring castles.
Lived 1878 onwards 85 Onslow Gardens, South Kensington.
Was living at 85 Onslow Gardens in 1883 when he wrote the forward to “Lusus Intercisi”.
Does not seem to appear in 1851 census, which unless he was abroad, shows the glitches in the system, as he is unlikely to have avoided it, being a lawyer. (Check his memoirs for that year?)
In 1861 had 5 servants.
In 1871 the at least 6 servants living in (they had no children at home!) were described thus: Family servant? (age 82) (seems she was perhaps a retired servant?), Housemaid (?) Cook, Ladies’ maid, Butler, Page, and (?).
The cook came from Shoreham, Kent, ie from the Gregory’s territory.
In 1881 had 4 servants living at 85 Onslow Gardens, including Sarah ___ , 24yrs, born at Lacock, Wilts, and Walter Hand (?), 21 yrs, born at Bremhill, Wilts. Presumably they were parishioners of Effie’s father.
