The Dodge Family Genealogy book shows the ancestors of most American Dodges to stem from a John Dodge and his wife, Margery. Briefly, John and his children are listed below:
The numbers refer to those used in the American Family Genealogy Book: non- American members so not have numbers, (except John . 1. )
1. John died about October 1636 . He married Margery. His children were:
2. (Farmer) William; Came to Salem 1629. Believed born about 1604
3. Richard appears Salem 1638. Probably born as early as 1602.
. Michael lived and died at East Coker. Married Mary and had 4 sons and 2 daughters. His son included "Coker" William who went to America before 1665 and was baptised at East Coker 1643/4.
Mary was married and died in England.
Much of what we know of John and Margery comes from his will. Thought parish registers were introduced in the first half of the 150's they were generally kept on scraps of parchment and few have survived from that century. Most parish registers commence about the early 1600s. The dates for the registers of the "Dodge parishes" are:
East Coker From 1560
West Coker From 1607
Middle Chinnock From 1695
West Chinnock From 1683
East Chinnock From 1647
Thus, using the available registers, we find in the East Coker register:
Baptisms of children of Richard and Edith: Margery 1630: John 1631: Marie 1635>
Baptisms of children of Michael and Mary: Margery 1639/40: John 1641/42 (Coker) William 1643/44 who went to America; Michael 1646/47: Richard 1651
The line of Michael and Mary continues in East and West Coker for a total of three generations. Further research is needed to link them to any living Dodges in Somerset today.
There are other Dodge families in East and West Coker in the 1600s. There is a reasonable probability that they are related to John 1. But no direct evidence from the registers.
The register of Middle Chinnock, where John 1. Dwelled is devoid og any Dodges.
One further course has recently been checked. The "Bishops Transcripts" wherein parsons annually reported abstracts of their registers. Such records are usually very fragmented, but in the case of East Chinnock, three years have survived and are relevant: 1598; 1602/3; 1606. They show Mary, daughter of John, baptised 1598 with William a churchwarden; Clemente, the daughter of John baptised in 1602; Francis the daughter of William baptised 1606, and William the son of John baptised 1606.
From these transcripts, it is probably that "Farmer" William. 2. Was baptised in 1606 in East Chinnock and that he may have had a sister Clemente. The transcripts also suggest the strong possibility of John having a brother William who was churchwarden of East Chinnock in 1598.
One possible anomaly can be observed. Since clearly, John and William were family names at that time, one wonders whether there was ever a John, son of John .1. Perhaps there was and he died when young but we have no records which would show it. Further searches of documents still unexamined may reveal more and possibly go back further generation or two before John .1.
Finally, when tracing the Dodges of South Somerset after the two brothers had emigrated to America, it is very clear that there were about three or four Dodge families in the vicinity of the Cokers, and in the growing moves from country to town of the 1700s and 1800s, there was a sudden appearance of a number of Dodge families in Crewkerne about four miles to the west of the Chinnocks, and in Yeovil itself. Yeovil and Crewkerne were the two local towns which inevitably received the attentions of the men who wanted to leave the land.
Of particular interest in the Parish register of East Chinnock is what is effectively a prayer of thanksgiving following a plague in the parish in 1646 through which "Coker" William must have lived.
East Coker Parish Register: Extract: 1645
"Memorandum that in 1645, in the parish of East Coker, from the eighth day of June until the tenth day of September, there died and were interred in the contageous Sickness, Plague, and Pestilence three score and ten persons - and it pleased the Almighty suddenly, beyond all mens expectation, to put an end to this fearful visitation. For which extroaordinary favour we ascribe all Laud and Praise unto his sacred name in the words of the prophet David - Psalm the 116th - verses 12, 13, and 14. What shall we render unto the Lord for all his benefits towards us? We will take the cup of salvation and call upon the name of he Lord. We will pay our vows unto the Lord, even now in the presence of all his people."
In a lease dated 13th June 1350 - the year after the plague, certain land is again identified by it's position between two other properties: It was two acres of meadow lying in Coker Mere in le Honyn - opposite Godelle Mead between the meadow of Sir John the chaplain of St Marys on one side and the meadow of William atte Mere on the other and abuts the brook. This parcel of land was leased by Adam, son of Richard atte Mere, of West Coker to John le Doo of West Coker and Joan his wife for the term of the life of one of them, the longer liver, for the payment of one rose at the Feast of the Nativity of John the Baptists. The witnesses were John de Salisbury, John Elys, Robert Gater, John Reynolds, Richard Penny, John Peay, John Williams, and others. John of St Marys in this deed will have been the rector of East Coker. John de Southton who had died of the plague the previous year. John le Doo we have met in association with his clerical brother, Philip. Others of these names occurring in documents of the precious decade are evidence of the plague not having entirely broken the continuity of village life. On the other hand in the seventh year after the plague, the name of John Levereich and Joan his wife, and Andrew Dagge and Emma his wife, vendors to this same John le Doo, of two messuages, and four score and six acres of land and four acres of meadow in West Coker and Hardyngton Mandeville - quite a considerable property are not familiar from any earlier assessment for the tax on goods.

REGISTER OF BISHOP BUBWITH Vol 30/2
November 3rd 1410 London
The Bishop received a presentation by John Chudyock esquire of William Dogge, clerk, to the chapel at Kyngeston by levele (Yeovil) and committed to Master John Tyssebuty, canon of Wells, his commissary general, to make inquisition upon the right of the presenter and the other articles usual in that behalf: and if the inquisition finds for the presenter and presentee to institute the latter as rector or warden in the chapel.
On the 13th November the inquisition Commission returned their certificate. A copy is held - in latin. It found that William Dogge was the rightful incumbent of the chapel. However, for whatever reason, William did not retain his appointment for long. In 1418, 27th February at Wells, we find: (Th Bishop) instituted Sir John Bardoff, chaplain, as rector or warden of the free chapel of All Saints.
