Hodge, LA

Hodge may refer to:

Hodge (cat)

Hodge (fl. c.1769) was one of Samuel Johnson's cats, immortalised in a characteristically whimsical passage in James Boswell's Life of Johnson.

Although there is little known about Hodge, such as his life, his death, or any other information, what is known is Johnson's fondness for his cat, which separated Johnson from the views held by others of the eighteenth century.

Hodge (1745 cricketer)

Hodge (first name and dates unknown) was an English cricketer who played in first-class cricket during the 1740s. He is recorded playing for Long Robin's XI against Richard Newland's XI at the Artillery Ground on Wednesday, 26 June 1745. Long Robin's XI won by "over 70 runs".

As Hodge had established his reputation by 1745, he must have been active for some years previously and his career probably began in the 1730s. Very few players were mentioned by name in contemporary reports and there are no other references to Hodge.
