Originally named The Kingston Brewery, founded in about 1610. The brewery was sold to William Hodgson in 1854. It was acquired by Courage in 1943 and ceased to brew in 1965.

(According to Richmond, L and Turton, A in The Brewing Industry, Manchester University Press, 1990)

It appears that there is very little other information regarding Hodgson's available on the internet. These photos were purchased from this gentleman (who has been a member of the delightfully titled 'Ephemera Society' since 1987) on eBay.
