Hi all, i found this thread in connection to the Boswell search but only got part way through...too big a read....but a giant wow and hats off to you, Deb for all that searching and to all the others who helped...
Look at all the family ties found and united!
Did you ever make the connection, then? :-\ Can't justify that long a read to see if William & Susanna were the right
parents, etc...

and here's something I found with a few more Hedges/ because you simply haven't enough...( also Cumbers, eastwoods, etc)

Hi everyone
Sorry to barge in midway through the thread but it appears I am also related to this line of the Hedges family.  Rose Ann Carter 1873 who married Henry Hedges 1869 are my great great grandparents.  My nan is one of the daughters of Rose Ann Hedges and William Giddins.  I recognise (I think) some of the people on here despite their user names from another site.  Its great to get further information and find out how far the family tree extends.  My nan's decendents live in the North west now and have for many years.  It would be great to hear tales from long ago.

XXXXX

I have just discovered this post and find it fascinating.  My grandfather is Joby Hedges and his father is James Hedges (born 1905).  James had Brothers named Joby, Henry, & Jack (John?).  Their father I believe was also called James & married Mathilda Matthews.  Clearly from the family christian names they fit somewhere into the family you have all been researching but can anyone tell me where, please?

Hi, I am new to this site but wish I had found it 3 yrs ago when I started researching into my hubbys ancestry. His grandfather was Walter hedges son of Jeremiah Hedges. I have filled in soooooooo many gaps with the help of all of you on here. Now I can put Job Hedges' (1821) father as William 1776, I have been stuck on this for 12 months. Does any one know any background on Jeremiah Hedges 1849. My late father in law said that my late mother in law had said that when Jeremiah died people lined the streets and apparently there are newspaper photos of it. My hubbys cousin also confirms this as she has seen the pic herself many yrs ago. Any help you can give will be gratefully received. :) :) ;)

Since I posted this I have found that I am on the wrong track a bit

Hello, you haven't given any details of where they were born? Would need a little more information. By the way, do you use Genes
Reunited site? It's also a great help.
Regards Joyce.

Hi thanks for replying, the details are

Walter Hedges 1886 Upton park essex married Olive Upton born 1891 in 1908 (hubbies grandparents)
Walters father was Jeremiah b 1849 upton park essex wifw Sarah Anne b 1854
Jeremiahs father was Job b 1821 - 1906 in windsor Essex wife Rosa Swann 1819-1886 marr in 1863
Jobs father was William Hedges 1776 in Essex wife Susannah.
I have used Genes Reunited before but I much prefer Ancestry.co.uk.
Would love any info on Jeremiah and would love to be able to go further back than William.
Many thanks

I was on the wrong track here sorry!!! back to the drawing board
