    3-4. The Hodder Family
    3-4. The Hodder Family
    ~ 1830 - Chideock Parish, Dorsetshire, England:

    My great-great-great grandfather, WILLIAM BUTTLE was born in the village of Churchingford in Churchstanton Parish, Devonshire, England. William started working as a farm laborer when he was quite young; probably around eight years old. The small amount of money he earned for a full days labor undoubtedly went directly into the family purse. As William approached adulthood he probably started traveling to nearby parishes in search of work when there was none available in Churchstanton Parish. Frequently he was unable to find work as a farm laborer so he would take any job he could get. Soon he was thinking of himself as being a general laborer rather than specializing in farm work. As time went by his job hunting took him farther and farther away from his family’s home in Churchstanton and, sometime around 1830, he found himself in the tiny village of Chideock in Dorsetshire, the county just to the east of Devonshir.

    William apparently found Chideock very much to his liking because he settled there permanently and became an official resident. Not long after he settled in Chideock William met a young woman named Mary Hodder [or perhaps he met her and that was what caused him to decide to settle in Chideock].

    • [Churchstanton OPC Baptisms; 29 June, 1845 (?); Chideock OPC Marriages: Chideock Burials]



      William was baptised in Churchstanton, then in Devonshire, on 7 Sep, 1806. He was born in the village of Churchingford, Devonshire.
      Sometime before 1833 he migrated to Chideock, Dorset. William was a general laborer in Chideock.
      William married Marry Hodder on 19 February, 1833, in Chideock.
      Sometime in 1855 the house that William was renting from Stephen Hodder burnt down [Seahill Cottage on Canberry Lane].
      William Buttle died in December, 1862 and was buried in Chideock on 10 December, 1862.
