So now just have to work out what happened to
Simon Peter HILL

There's a possible marriage in Bedminster in 1862. Peter Hill, 25, father George, married Ann Thomas.

In the 1870 US census there's a Peter (35)  and Ann Hill (30), both from England, in the township of Grand Blanc, Genesee County, Michigan. He's a farmer.

Just possibilities!

Thanks Shaun.
I will check that out that Peter HILL.
I found a marriage certificate on a tree for Charles BEDFORD aged 29 to Kathleen JONES on the  28 Nov 1900 Registry Office, Oamaru, New Zealand. Certificate shows his father as George BEDSON Organ Builder and mother Esther GORGAN formerly BEDFORD Maiden name HILL.
So definitely the correct Charles BEDFORD.
But still no luck with what happened to Esther/Hester.

There are quite a few references to Charles Bedford in the NZ papers. Here are a couple

It could be him.
Fathers name correct.
Mothers maiden name MARKEY close to MEAKER
Sisters in London Phebe Yes, Jennie could be Jane/Lucy.
Checked the marriage to Ann THOMAS. No other info on there that helps.
I have checked for a Peter HILL ba 1834/37 with father George on the 1851 and 1861 census and the only one that comes up is the one in High Ham.
