Matthew Sedgwick (born circa 1811)

Matthew Sedgwick [Unknown Sedgwick]
b circa 1811 Yorkshire
m Martha Cundale 1837
m2 Eliza Hawkswell
d 19 June 1852 Victoria, Australia (#5301)

A Matthew and wife Martha arrived in New South Wales in July 1844 on board the Dale Park. The Tasmanian Record Office shows that on 8 September 1845, 6 Sedgwick's left George Town on board the 'Scout' bound for Port Philip. A Matthew Sedgwick with his wife and daughter Sarah plus Thomas Sedgwick with his wife and son William - could this be the same family?

The first four children were baptised as the children of Matthew and Martha - the last two as the children of Matthew and Eliza. Eliza Sedgwick, widow of Matthew, remarried to George Radford in 1853. No trace of a second marriage although there seem to be two wives - is this one family group or two?
