Charles Dodd was an Irish journalist and writer, who for many years worked with The Times. Amongst his other works he wrote "The Parliamentary Pocket Companion", published in 1832, and later, in 1841, "The Peerage, Baronetage, and Knightage of Great Britain and Ireland". The latter became an annual edition. In his later years he reverted to the original spelling of his surname, Dod. His son, Robert Phipps Dod, assisted his father, and took over the management in 1843.
