Hodges, Nathaniel (1629–1688), physician, was born on 14 September 1629 in Kensington, the son of Thomas Hodges, dean of Hereford. He was a king's scholar at Westminster School, and in 1646 was awarded a scholarship at Trinity College, Cambridge. He transferred to Oxford in 1648, and was appointed by the parliamentary visitors to a studentship at Christ Church (BA 1651, MA 1654, MD 1659). In 1654 Hodges contributed to the Oxford volume of verse issued to celebrate the peace with the Dutch. He practised medicine from his house in Walbrook, London, where he was admitted as a candidate for fellowship of the College of Physicians in 1659; he was not admitted to fellowship until 1672, an unusually long delay.
