The will of Joshua Hedley of Darlington (and possibly Thirsk earlier) was proved at York in August 1856. I came across this will recently at York whilst looking for one of my Hedley relations.
Joshua had a late brother-in-law, Joseph Bowron, and a sister, Ann Bowron, so he was part of the family being enquired about some years ago by Laurie Wood Brandt.
Joshua had nephews
Joseph Bowron of Middlesborough
John Baker of Thirsk and
James Baker of York.
He also had a sister, Eleanor. His brother, Hartas, and the 2 sons of his sister Mary Thistlewaite lived in America in 1850 when the will was written.
An LDS member's info. on IGI tells us that Joshua was the son of James Hedley and Sarah Hartas - hence the Hartas Hedley refered to above.
I hope these notes help someone!
Perhaps in return someone would tell me where I would find the names of the parents of a Thomas Hedley who was killed in Wrekenton, near Gateshead in a mining accident in 1843 and who might have had a brother Andrew who was born in Jamaica. I don't ask much!
