UK Sedgwicks - Places - Buckinghamshire
In the 1851 census there are three individuals who could be related to each other but without supporting proof from the parish records, the individuals are only tentatively linked at the moment.
There are earlier Sedgwicks in the parish and it seems likely that this group can be linked to them.
A2A has several references to this group of people unfortunately detailing their brushes with the law and subsequent punishments.
William and Lucy Sedgwick were both imprisoned following affrays with the police. William Sedgwick was fined 1 shilling and imprisoned for a month following a fight over a hat! Lucy and her daughter Margaret Mayo (nee Beckley) fought a policeman trying to arrest William Beckley (Lucy's son). Lucy was sentenced to 6 weeks hard labour.
Jonas Sedgwick was imprisoned for six months following an assault on Harry Hearn, constable and watchman.
