Re: Is it William Hoge, Hogue, or HOGG?

In Reply to: Re: Is it William Hoge, Hogue, or HOGG? by R. Ted Hoge of 515

A number of years ago, I studied at the University of Edinburgh, about twelve miles from Musselburgh, where the Hoges, I believe, are said to have originated. The only spelling I ran across there was "Hogg", although there are often many permutations of any given name used in the course of three hundred years. It's my own pet theory that at some point the Hoges began to feel uncomfortable with their name in its original spelling, although why I haven't a clue, since many prominent Scotsmen share it.
Does anyone know of the existence of early portraits of Hoges? I have seen and photographed the originals of General James Hoge of Montgomery County, and I have seen likenesses of the Rev. Moses Hoge; but I can't help wondering if there are other early paintings of our ancestors.
