Need Advice on connecting HEDGES brothers #2
« on: Thursday 27 November 08 20:37 GMT (UK) »


 Well Jenny iv'e had no luck with those ???

 These families are very good at hiding ;D ;D

       Sue

They certainly are Sue I can't find them either. Elusive little folk. Probably hiding up some lane where no one would find them. Certainly not an Enumerator doing a census.
thanks for trying to find them though, it's always good to know it's not just me being a dummy and just missing them because I don't know what I'm looking at. Just trying to think what else to try that might further my search.

Just clearing up a few things...

Edit: is she the Sarah Ann Eastwood christened on 24 February 1850 in Hadlow, Kent and daughter of James Eastwood and and Sarah?

Where did you find this one James It seems a very likely candidate as a relative as the area is right, but where would she fit.

Over at the IGI at Family Search.

I couldn't find any others who were children of James and Sarah though.

There are six christenings for Eastwoods in Hadlow, though.

Here's the six Eastwoods of Hadlow:

1. Frances Eastwood, chr. 26 May 1839, daughter of George Eastwood and Phoebe
2. Thomas Eastwood, chr. 22 January 1843, daughter of Thomas Eastwood and Elvey (ooh, that's a travellers name!)
3. Ann Eastwood, chr. 28 December 1845, daughter of Richard Eastwood and Elizabeth
4. Caroline Eastwood, chr. 26 April 1846. daughter of John Eastwood and Harriet
5. Jane Eastwood, chr. 31 May 1846, daughter of George Eastwood and Phoebe
6. Sarah Ann Eastwood, chr. 31 May 1850, daughter of James Eastwood and Sarah

The mind boggles, only George and Phoebe are repeasted as parents!

However, both Elvey/Alvey and Phoebe are names we're familiar with in the travelling families we've been tracing.

Also:

Elvy Eastwood, chr. 30 May 1841, Bexley, Kent, daughter of Thomas Eastwood and Elvey
George Eastwood, chr. 30 July 1837, Stone By Dartford, Kent, son of John Eastwood and Harriett
Mark Eastwood, chr. 13 Aug 1843, St. James, Grain, Kent, son of John Eastwood and Harriett

perhaps something will come to light that will enable us to make a connection at some point. At the moment I'm a bit lost for what to try next.

I was wondering about something,  but don't think I know how to go about finding out more. I will throw it into the mix and see what happens.
I am concerned about the age spread of the 4 brothers, thinking there may be more to fill the gaps.
Thomas 1801
James 1815
William 1816
Job 1821

Now there was a Joseph Hedges b c1821 mentioned in 1841 Census with my suspected  Father of the 4 brothers William HEDGES b c 1776 both in Maidstone prison. Would it be worth looking for Joseph HEDGES in Maidstone and surrounding areas in case he is another brother.
I suspect he may be Job Hedges b 1821 but I could be wrong is it worth the hunt do you think?

Also when hunting through cityark last night I found this Marriage

All Saints Parish church Frindsbury
1892 April 30
John Richard HEDGES Age 25  Occupation ???man  Living Frindsbury Father Alfred HEDGES Labourer
Elanor Elizabeth FORDHAM Age 24          Living Frindsbury Father Charles Richard FORDHAM Labourer

Witness Alfred James BONNEY          Witness Minnie Soft or Loft

I have an Alfred HEDGES living in this area who had a son Alfred but don't have enough to connect them. I haven't found any thing on the Census so far. Anyone want a try at it.
