Hi Sue,
It was Williams Grandson EDWARD 1836-1897 who went to Qld according to a Family Tree.
Edward was the Son of THOMAS 1799-1871 and Margaret nee HICK.

Hi terngirl,
1841 Census has a WILLIAM/SARAH Bedford living in Badsworth, Yorkshire. Both age 70, and William is an Ag Lab.
1851 William is a Widower, Ag Lab, born c 1768, Not Known, Yorkshire.

William was Buried 25 August 1852, Badsworth, age recorded as 81
(Source West Yorks, Deaths Burials)

William/Sarah named Children;
Mary, Eleanor, Joseph, John, Thomas, Richard, Edward

Familysearch.Org has a William BEDFORD Christened 26 July 1770, Cawood, Father JOSEPH
There are several other possible though as POB is not shown on 1851 Census;
eg 10 March 1768, Penstone, Father JNO

Trish :)

EDIT;
Familysearch.Org has a JOSEPH Bedford Christened 01 Jan 1745, Cawood, Yorks, Father THOMAS

No sure if this will help you but this is an extract from the will of Thomas MARSHALL of Cawood died 1814

To my daughter MARY the wife of Joseph BEDFORD the sum
of fifteen pounds
to Thomas  BEDFORD the son of Joseph BEDFORD 5 - 5/-

Mary was his eldest child baptised Cawood 8 Jan 1744 married 28 May 1770

Might open up some avenues for you but I could not find a date that you posted the query - so long since I've been on the site. Sorry if it is not useful
