Found him Strood Rochester 1891
Alfred HEDGES Head 45
Eliza Wife 44
Esther Dau 10
Florence Dau Ethel 9
Alice Maud Dau 8
Lillian Eliz Ada Dau 6
Joseph Son 4
Eliz Annie  Dau 2

Living next door

John Rich HEDGES Head 25 Stoker Marine Engine born Chatham  Kent
Mary Ann Wife 28                                                   born  Rochester Kent

The wife is wrong though ODD

Not that odd at all:

Surname     First name(s)     Age     District     Vol     Page
                        Marriages Dec 1889   (>99%)
Gore    Sarah Ann                               Strood    2a   901    
Hedges    John Richard                        Strood    2a   901
Martin    Mary Ann M P                        Strood    2a   901
MARTIN    Mary Ann McP                        Strood    2a   901
Medhurst    Edward Thomas                Strood    2a   901


He married his first wife Mary Ann McPherson Martin on 25th December 1889 at St. Mary's Church, Strood, Kent.  It seems she probably died young.

Thanks for that James. I'm not sure Mary died though perhaps divorced as I can find no suitable death registration and on his second marriage he didn't say widower but bachelor.

Hi all
YIPPEE ;D ;D ;D
I have had a certificate arrive ;D
Just to refresh memories it is for the Baby Thomas HEDGES who died in East Malling in 1854 of Cholera Father presant at death James HEDGES.

His Birth Certificate States....
Place                                 Name     Sex     Father         Mother                         Fathers Occ   
1853 Bocking Essex   Thomas  Boy      James         Eliza HEDGES               Hawker
9th March 1853                                          HEDGES      formerly JENNINGS
by the side of
Shallow Road
Panfield


Residence of Informant James HEDGES  is Bernet Hertfordshire.
He must have given this as his permanant place of abode. Might be interesting to search this area.
And Eliza is a JENNINGS Wooohooo.
And William and Susan that died during the same time at the same place sojourning in East Malling must be the Parents of James and therefore the parents of all the brothers. Is this enough proof I ask myself. I think is is for me. Would it be for you?

Hi Sue I think Hertfordshire should have a quick scan don't you. You never know I might come across something. Just curious really as to why he would tell the Registar he lived there. He was according to 1 census born Plumstead another states NK (not known)?

Sorry Sue I missed reading this bit, silly me ::)

I'm going to do a general scan of 1851 for William1816 and Thomas 1801 as cant find them for 1851,
but at some point it would be good to see if any other children were born to James and Eliza in Hertfordshire. Just a thought that they may have spent some time there.
