Curate of St John Baptist, Clifton, Bristol.
Vicar of St. Marks Swindon 1850, and Bloxham 1852-85.
Appointed vicar of Bloxham by his cousin Francis Hodgson, Provost of Eton.
Instituted 15 Oct 1852, inducted 16 October.
Bloxham parish church was granted to Eton College in 1547.
Charles Kegan Paul:
My father, who was in London, went to Eton and saw Mr. Bethell, who was very favourably inclined, and for some time it seemed possible that I should stay at Bloxham. The Provost, however, once more changed his mind, and appointed his cousin, the Rev. James Hodgson, to be vicar of Bloxham. I spent the summer at Bloxham — I was there exactly six months — and it was memorable to me from family matters. ...
“In September I paid a long visit to the Harmans at Bloxham...
Hodgson was administering the parish with much High Church vigour, but by no means acceptably to the people, and was busying himself with a college founded by his curate, Mr Hewett, which was to be a second Radley, but failed lugubriously. In other hands, and with all connection with the Parish Church severed, it is doing well enough as a secondary school.
I sent my brother Willie there for a time, till I could have him with me at Eton or arrange to send him to an Eton dame's.
Hodgson was maintaining a daily service single-handed, which I undertook to keep up while he took a holiday, Harman's house being close at hand. This had been a great tie, and Hodgson had scarce gone beyond the bounds of the village for a year and more. I remember the delight with which he started on his holiday with the words, "I'm so much obliged to you. Please God, I won't go to church for a month." He made other arrangements for his Sunday duty.”
(Memories By Charles Kegan Paul) [the school held the living.]
The original school on the site of Bloxham School was founded in 1853 by J W Hewett, a local Anglo-Catholic curate.[
By mid-1856, Hewett was bankrupt and the school had failed to attract sufficient numbers of boys. Hewett's school, with several dozen pupils and incomplete buildings, was closed in April 1857. The school trust approached Nathaniel Woodard for help, but he was uninterested in buying or supporting the school.
In 1859, Hewett's dilapidated school buildings were bought for £1,615 by Philip Reginald Egerton, a Church of England curate working in Deddington. Like Hewett, he was strongly influenced by the Oxford Movement and sought to establish a new school to teach its values.
James Hodgson (1852-86) was a High Churchman and was particularly distressed at his parishioners 'having no notion of a church as a place of worship'. He began weekly communion services, daily matins and evensong, and 5 services on Sundays...
Elected member of the Oxford Architectural Society in 1852.
