About Hudghton
The earliest record of the name with the spelling Hodgeton appears to be in the  old Parish Register for Montrose,when John Hodgeton was baptised on the 19th  August,1733.The fact that the record for his parents marriage,a mere two months  earlier gives their names as Alexander Hodgetoun and Ann Reid immediately shows  that before the mid 19th century there was no general literacy,and even into  the late 19th century,a writer would put his own interpretation on  spelling.When their second son,Alexander,was baptised in July,1735,their names  are shown as Alexander Hodgtown and Anna Reid,but when James was baptised in  August,1737,they were again recorded at Montrose as Alexander Hodgeton and Ann  Reid.
 The fact that O.P.R,s pre 1855,only record Baptisms and Marriages, and are  certainly not complete records,still provide strong evidence of the family  being in and around the Montrose area in the early 18th century.It is probable  that Alexander Hodgsten, who was baptised at Montrose on the 27th May,1710 is  the same Alexander who was the father of John(above) in 1733.His father,  James,is recorded on another five baptisms in Montrose with the name shown  as Hodgston in 1708 and Hodgestone in 1712,1714,1717 and1724.In all these  cases,the mother is given as Margaret Greig.Later records of John Hodgeton  having three sons baptised at Inverkeilor between 1743 and 1747 suggest a  likely 
 connection  with the Hodgeton farm.In all probability the family history can be  traced back to James Hodgston at Montrose in 1708 or James Hodgestone at  Arbroath in 1701.It would appear that Hodgeton Farm consisted of a Farmhouse steading 5 cottages and a bothy.Found a reference to Hogetoun of Inverkelour 24 January 1575/6 also a cotton of Hodgestoun parish of Inverkeillor dated 2nd March 1619.
 Many thanks to David Hodgeton for the above information and all the help he  gave me to get this site up and running.
