    Notes 
    • The following is taken from http://archiver.rootsweb.ancestry.com/th/read/AUS-VIC-GIPPSLAND/2000-07/0963428314, April 2008:
      "The marriage of George Dixon HEDLEY, aged 25,
      bachelor, surgeon, of Bedford, son of George HEDLEY, stationer, and Anna
      Elizabeth Hawes PECK, aged 19, spinster, daughter of Robert James PECK,
      surgeon, was solemnised at St. Mary's Church, Newmarket, Suffolk, on the 22nd
      of September 1842. The ceremony was conducted by the Revd. Thomas Alcock
      HEDLEY, M.A., the bridegroom's brother-in-law, who had travelled from St.
      James's, Gloucester, for the occasion. The witnesses were Mary Anne PECK and
      Thomas HEDLEY. It appears that George Dixon HEDLEY emigrated to Gippsland,
      Victoria, Australia, in about 1850, soon after his brother-in-law, Dr. George
      WITT, went to New South Wales, in about 1849. Dr. WITT wrote 'home' in 1851
      and referred to 'Dr. Hedley' as follows: 'we have kept our old Servant at
      present, her husband is now Captn. of a Ship & is gone to China, but we hear
      from Dr. Hedley that he has met with the common lot of all who bring out
      Servants, his man & his wife have left him - We have never seen him (Dr. H.)
      yet, but we hear that he has grown quite stout & strong' (Dr. George Witt's
      letter to Thomas Barnard of Bedford, dated April 6th 1851). George Dixon
      Hedley, 'Esquire', certainly lived at Gippsland, Victoria, Australia, in 1869
      because he benefitted from Elizabeth Witt's Will, which was made at that time."

      Pat Galovich sent the following in March 2012, extracted from the Gippsland Times:
      "Gippsland Times, dated 17th March 1879 as follows: "DEATH. HEDLEY. At his residence, Cuninghame Street, Sale, on the 14th March, George Dixon Hedley, M.D., M.R.C.S.L., in his 63rd year.""
