Name Distribution and Frequency
in Censuses from 1841 to 1911

The data on this page serves no purpose other than to satisfy my idle curiosity.  It's just something I collected on my travels and post here in order to shock and amaze those who say "Wow! I never knew there were so many of us."

What I've done is sort the most popular forenames of the Hogarth name and its main variants into descending order of total occurence in the censuses.  The surnames chosen for this study were: Hogarth; Hoggarth; Hoggard; Hoggar; Hoggatt; Hoggett.

Since only the top 20 most popular forenames have been used to represent each of the surnames for a particular census year, you can be assured that a good many more were omitted.  Thus, there really are "so many of us" and I really ought to get back to doing something more useful!
