Looking for HODGE of Helston, Cornwall, England

Query by LorryM

I am descended from Mary Ann HODGE, b.c.1827 to Jane & Edward HODGE, in Cornwall, England. She married William MOYLE, [b. 1824] in Helston, 24 Jan 1849 & they had 2 children: William Henry MOYLE & Jane MOYLE, before emigrating to Australia on "AUGUSTA SCHNEIDER" in 1852.

They had more children in Australia.

I would like to share & exchange information about Mary Ann HODGE'S family in Helston, Cornwall, England. Her mother Jane, was a laundress, born in Sithney late 1790s.

Thankyou for that info, I appreciate you taking the time. I have been in contact with descendants of those families, but, alas, we aren't on the same tree. - Regards, Lorry.

i am also a descendant of the HODGE family and I have some information on the MOYLE family too, however they are the same as the above moyle's so perhaps you are not related to them. Let me know if you are after anymore information!

Thank you for contacting me.
I don't have much info about Mary Ann HODGE, except that her mother was Jane and her brother & father were both called Edward. Maybe our HODGE families are related. Mine came from Helston, Wendron, Cornwall.
I think Mary Ann's brother Edward HODGE came to Australia with his wife Elizabeth and young daughter, also Elizabeth, but I haven't followed through with more research here in Australia yet! Do you have any of those names in your list?
Jane HODGE (the mother) was born c1795 in Sithney, Cornwall but I don't know her maiden name. Regards, Lorraine.

Dear asheppard,
thank you so much for all that information. That is fantastic!
I will definitely check it out further.

Sarah & Elizabeth MOYLE were twins, and sisters-in-law to Mary Ann HODGE. The REPPER name is also linked to the MOYLE family.

I appreciate you taking the time to contact me.
Regards, Lorraine.
