“It looks like James Hodgson, snr., took Kingston and Thruxton in 1742, and Humber in 1756. He relinquished Humber to James Hodgson, jnr., in 1777, but seems to have retained the curacies of Marston and Docklow until his death in 1778. James Hodgson, jnr., ceased Humber in 1788. I have no record of James Hodgson, snr., taking the curacies of Marston, Docklow or Humber but the records are bound to be incomplete.”
I have assumed his birth place.
No will on PRO website.
I’m sorry to say that we have very few records on pupils and certainly none from the dates mentioned.
