Date of Death[edit]

I've changed Hodgson's date of death from 30 to 29 December 1852. This is not only what the Dictionary of National Biography says, but it is also confirmed by contemporary newspapers (cf. the British Newspaper Archive):

  • Yorkshire Gazette, 1 Jan 1853, p. 5
  • Cheltenham Looker-On, 1 Jan 1853, p. 13
  • Newcastle Journal, 8 Jan 1853, p. 8
  • Norfolk Chronicle, 8 Jan 1853, p. 2
