" Ireland Birth and Baptisms 1620-1881" lists the son:  Thomas Hodges as being born on 02 Nov 1873 to Robert Hodges and Catherine Lane Hodges:

An public profile shows that Robert Hodge's father was also a Thomas Hodges, 1800-1899 in Loughill County, Limerick, Ireland

It shows Catherine Lane's death as:  01/11/1921 in Sussex Street, Lower North Adelaide, South Australia and Robert Hodge's death: 02/04/1908 in South Australia.  (There is an attached rememberance that says:  In loving rememberance of Robert Hodges, who died February 4, 1908.  Rest in peace.  : Inserted by his loving wife and children."

The same Ireland Birth and Baptisms as above lists Catherine Lane as:

Name: Catherine Lane
Gender: Female
Christening Date: 14 Jul 1844
Father's Name: John Lane
Mother's Name: Hannah Guiney

But I don't know if it is the right Catherine Lane as there is no mention of a Catherine Lane who went to Australia.  It's a possibility for research, though.

Name: Mr R Hodges
Port of Departure: Auckland, New Zealand
Port of Arrival: Sydney, New South Wales
Voyage Arrival Date: 4 Mar 1910

This is the only R. Hodges I found that went from NZ to Australia though there are many R. Hodges who went from England to Australia.
