Hodgins/Guest/Armitage in North Tipperary
Posted by: phyllis davies (ID *****4977) Date: July 28, 2012 at 14:08:30
  of 1658

Has anyone got any proven knowledge of when the Hodgins and Guests moved into the Newtown/Modreeny/Cloughjordan area?

There once was such a large concentration of Church of Ireland families - Hodgins, Guest, Armitage, Grant- in this area, something must have brought them here.

I am a descendant of Tom Hodgins of Newtown who married Alicia Lewis on 10 Jan 1843. I've seen the marriage entry for this in Cloughjordan parish records.
I have the death cert for Thomas Hodgins died 7th Nov 1870, place of death is Cloughjordan. He is married, aged 70 years, a farmer. Signature, qualification and residence of informant is Anne Hodgins, present at death, Cloughjordan. Tom and Alicia had a daughter Anne.

Also living round the same time is John Hodgins of Newtown and Richard Hodgins of Ballymackey

In the Tipperary list of freeholders for 1776 are James Hodgins, Thomas Hodgins and William Hodgins , all of Newtown.In the list of people paying Hearth tax in Tipperary between 1665 and 1667 published by Laffan in 1911, there is no mention of Hodgins or Guest or any of the main Protestant families of Modreeny.

I'm trying to squeeze the time period 1665 - 1800 and hoping that a Hodgins or Guest will pop out, so far without any joy.
