Sara Hodges (England) 1850's

Need to find out more info on this family (My Great Great Grandpa's family).

Great Grandpa Joseph Samuel Hodges born 18 JUN 1855 in Kidderminster, Worcestershire County, England.

Mother's name "Sarah" (cant find maiden name) born abt 1834 in England.

His father either passed before he was born or shortly thereafter. The Christening record for my Grandpa only lists his mother (Sarah Hodges) but no father. I 'heard' the father was a well-to-do Jeweler in England before his passing (unconfirmed). Name was possibly 'Samuel' or 'Joseph' as both are family names.

Sarah remarried a man named Thomas Wood born abt 1834 in England.

Around 1859-60 Sarah & Thomas sailed to the US on the ship "Constitution" bound for New Orleans.

If you could help me figure out the Mother's maiden name & the Father's actual name, it would mean everything to me.

Thanks so much everyone!!
