HODGE.-July 31, 1907, at Coningsby, Beaconsfield parade, Lindfield, Samuel Walter Hodge, aged 49 years.

The names keep swapping around so we are looking for either Samuel W. or Walter S.

I am all Hodged out but none of them in 1881 are just right!

So I would say he has gone unless he was lying about where he was born or dropped one of his names to spite you.

Hello Barbara,

Thanks for looking. I can't see him in 1881 either.

Another long-distance swimmer.


Thanks Barbara.

If neither of you can find him in 1881 that narrows dates down a bit.

You have lots of good long distance swimmers in your lot Dave :biggrin:
