Journal by jen191

My father was Leonard Robert HEDGES born 1909 in London and died in Essex in 1962. He was married to a Rose Esther COTTER in 1937 in West Ham, London. His father was called Robert Horace HEDGES and mother Ellen Louisa PYE.Robert Horace HEDGES' father was Samuel Thomas HEDGES born around 1846 and he was married to Ann ?

I am not sure who Samuel's father was either James or Francis born around 1811. I am sure he was married to Jane BURGESS ?.

If anyone can help with the HEDGES family I look forward to hearing from you.

From what yuou have stated I would assume this is Samuel's birth record:
Name: HEDGES, Samuel Thomas
Registration District: Ely
County: Cambridgeshire
Year of Registration: 1846
Quarter of Registration: Apr-Jun
Volume No: 14
Page No: 77

and think this is him in the 1861 census at Herschel Street, Upton, Slough, Buchinghamshire:
HEDGES, James Head Married M 60 1801 Contractor, Hertford
HEDGES, Jane Wife Married F 42 1819 Contractors Wife, Pangbourne
HEDGES, James Son Unmarried M 17 1844 Contractors Assistant, Norfolk
HEDGES, Samuel Son M 16 1845 Contractors Assistant, Cambridge
HEDGES, Jane Servant F 15 1846 Servant Langley
BURGESS, Fanny Visitor F 44 1817 Late Domestic Servant, Pangbourne, Buckinghamshire

and in the 1851 census at Salt Hill, Farnham Royal, Buckinghamshire.
HEDGES, Jane Wife Married F 32 1819 Pangbourn, Berkshire
HEDGES, James Head Married M 42 1809 Ag. Lab. Colnbrook, Buckinghamshire
HEDGES, Elizabeth J F 9 1842 London, Middlesex
HEDGES, James J M 6 1845 Brandon, Norfolk
HEDGES, Samuel T M 3 1848 Downam, Cambridgeshire
BURGES, Joseph Lodger Widower M 70 1781 Ag. Lab. Pangbourn, Berkshire

Downham is actually in Norfolk, but next to Ely, so it is possable that he was born near the border of Downham and registered in Ely.
Hope that is of help

Checking the IGI records there is a James Hedges baptised at Colnbrook on 1 Sep 1805 Parents John & Ann Hedges.
and this could be him in the marriage records:
Jane Burgess & James Hedges
Jun 1839 Reading Vol 6 Page 317
