HODGES, George M 25 1816
HODGES, Elizabeth F 25 1816
HODGES, George M 6 1835

LEAR, Elizabeth F 20 1821 Shoemaker

LEAR, James M 20 1821 Agricultural labourer
I thought we should try and trace George junior. I have no idea yet if he died young or stayed in England. He was not with the family on shipping record in 1857. I don't know if he would be in 1851 as HODGES or LEWTON or LEAR. Or if he married. George is not with the family in Wiltshire in 1851.

If you could have a look please and I will too. I can't find a matching baptism for sister Elizabeth although this birth fits:

Births Jun 1838
Hodges Elizabeth Keynsham 11 125

Also, I can't find the HODGES + WILMOT marriage or as HODGES + PEACOCK or any combination. I would have expected a marriage because a baptism for George junior exists. It does not say but looks as though he was 2 years old. I would therefore expect the marriage to be between 1835 and before 15 Oct 1837.
