     The name of Stoddard, also found written as Stodder, Stodderd, Stoderd, Stodderde, Stodart, Stoddart, Stodard, Stoddar, and in other forms, is one of the oldest in England.  By different writers the name has been given both a Norman and a Saxon derivation.  There is a tradition, that the first of this name came over during the Norman invasion of 1066 as a standard-bearer, and that the name is derived from the office of a standard-bearer.

     The first of the family to come to America was John Stodder of Hingham.  He was granted land in 1638. The next year Anthony Stoddard of Boston arrived, and in 1642, a John Stoddard was a settler at Wethersfield, Conn., and in 1650, another John Stoddard is found at New London.  This book is concerned with the descendants of John Stodder of Hingham, Mass.

     It is believed that he came to New England, like many others, to escape religious persecution. He had six children, five of whom were born in England. He died in 1661 in Hingham, Mass.
