Note that there may be errors in the above data, so if it is important to you then check the source.

Statistically, since there are no Hoggarths, I think that this shows that Hogarth is a relatively common name compared with Hoggarth. No rational person would suggest that having one less "G" in your surname would make one more educated or intelligent?
