Notes for Thomas HODGKIN DCL
Historian. Of Barmoor Castle from 1899. Before that lived in Bamburgh and Falmouth.59

British historian and banker, son of John Hodgkin (1800-1875),[2] barrister and Quaker minister, and Elizabeth Howard (daughter of Luke Howard). In 1861 he married Lucy Ann (1841–1934) (daughter of Alfred Fox who created Glendurgan Garden) and subsequently they had three sons and three daughters.

Having been educated as a member of the Society of Friends and taken the degree of B.A. at the University of London, he became a partner in the banking house of Hodgkin, Barnett, Pease and Spence, Newcastle-on-Tyne, a firm afterwards amalgamated with Lloyds Bank.

While continuing in business as a banker, Hodgkin devoted a good deal of time to historical study, and soon became a leading authority on the history of the early Middle Ages, his books being indispensable to all students of this period. His chief works are:
• Italy and her Invaders (8 vols., Oxford, 1880-1899)
• The Dynasty of Theodosius (Oxford, 1889)
• Theodoric the Goth (London, 1891)
• An introduction to the Letters of Cassiodorus (London, 1886).

He also wrote a Life of Charles the Great (London, 1897); Life of George Fox (Boston, 1896); and the opening volume of Longman's Political History of England (London, 1906).
