A Vision of Britain through Time provides the following description of Hodsock from John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales of 1870-72:

"HODSOCK, a lordship in Blyth parish, Notts; on the river Ryton, 4¾ miles NNE of Worksop. It includes the hamlets of Goldthorpe and Costrop; and comprises 4,092 acres. Real property: £6,294. Population: 207. Houses: 34. Hodsock Priory is the seat of Lieut. Col. W. L. Mellish, and commands a very fine view. Hodsock Park is the seat of G. Smith, Esq."

Hodsock became a separate civil parish in 1866. The parish is on the county border with the West Riding of Yorkshire (since 1974 South Yorkshire).

Wikipedia has an article on Hodsock Priory which includes a history of its ownership.
