Kirkman Daniel Hodgson, JP (1814 – 11 September 1879) was an East India merchant and banker, becoming a partner in the merchantile firm of Baring Brothers and Co. He later became Deputy Governor and Governor of the Bank of England (1863–1865) and a Member of Parliament in the United Kingdom.[1][2][3][4] He first stood in Bridport in 1857 to 1868 and later stood in the constituency of Bristol after winning a by-election in 1870 and retaining the seat in the 1874 General Elections. His resignation triggered the Bristol by-election, 1878.
