from Hampstead Heath, LondonProbably built 'the Elms' in 1824 Originally from Newcastle Between 1819 and 1844 John Hodgson considerably enlarged Priory Lodge with a baywindowed extensionFrom: 'Hampstead: Frognal and the Central Demesne', A History of the County of Middlesex: Volume 9: Hampstead, Paddington (1989), pp. 33-42. URL: Date accessed: 22 May 2007.(6) Kirkman Finlay was James Finlay's second son. His elder son, Major John Finlay, R.E., F.R.S., Secretary to the Duke of Richmond, was father to George Finlay of Athens, the historian of Greece, in whom the perfervidum ingenium came out in another form. George Finlay was originally an apprentice with Graham & Mitchell, writers, but he had no taste for the law, and after studying at Gottingen he became an ardent Philhellene, and joined Byron in the attempt to free Greece. He afterwards settled at Athens, and was to the last, in spite of disappointment and disillusion, the firm friend and wise adviser of his adopted country. He died at Athens 26th January, 1876, aged seventy-six. He had married a Greek wife. An only child, a daughter, died before him. 'Kirkman' has become naturalized as a Christian name in the allied families of Finlay and Hodgson. James Finlay had a London correspondent, Alderman Kirkman, M.P., and thought so much of him that he called his son Kirkman Finlay. John Hodgson in his turn thought so much of Kirkman Finlay that he called his son (the late M.P. for Bristol) Kirkman Hodgson. John Hodgson was a Newcastle lad, whom Kirkman Finlay had raised to be head of his London house, Finlay, Hodgson & Co.1809
