    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 familyĺs 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].

    • [Chideock OPC Baptisms; Marriage Registration Selina Buttle & Joseph England; various British Censuses; Death Registration Certificate]



      This Mary Hodder may have been my 3 X great grandmother who married William Buttle. [Confidence Rating 7]
      The 1851 census shows my Mary's age as 46. That would make her birth ca 1805. However, the 1841 census show her birth in 1816. Other censuses show her as being born in 1805~1806.
      In 1871 Mary was living in the Frying Pan area south of Chideock Village. She was a widow, earned her living as a braider and her 6 year old granddaughter, Mary J. Warren, was with her. Her a>
      ge was shown as 66 [born in 1805┬▒]
      In 1881 a Mary Buttle from Chideock was living with her daughter, Sarah, and son-in-law in Ruislip, Middlesex. This was my Mary Hodder; Mary Hodder~Buttle, 86, died in Ewell, Surrey, on 17 J>
      uly, 1888. Her son-in-law, Joseph England, was present at her death and registered her death. Cause of death was listed as "Senile Decay". Her age at death was reported to have been 86 years maki>
      ng her birth in 1802. However, Joseph England was illiterate, so her age was probabbly based on hearsay]
