Lesley and I emigrated to the United States of America in 1997 and settled in Atlanta GA. Previously we lived in Birmingham (England) were our current family's still live. We were very sorry to leave them behind but regular visits from them and by us help to ease the separation. Atlanta to Birmingham (England) is only 4000 miles, 8 hours by plane. So if you fancy a trip to the sun, just give us a call. When we moved over we brought with us our loving dogs, Spartan, Chelsea and Paris. All have since passed away but the current family includes Inca, Max & Luka. Inca is Import from England and Max is our rescue dog from Atlanta pound and Luka is our adopted cat from next door Via South Africa.
Living in America
1997 was a new start for Lesley and myself. Making a new commitment and a new life on the other side of the Atlantic. I was working here since 1995 and going back to the UK for a couple of weeks at a time. I think Lesley new that I was itching to move and she agreed to leave our families to spend her life with me in the USA. This was a hard decision for Lesley to make but she did and I am forever grateful. Well from the picture to the left you can see our house in Roswell, a suburb 20 Miles NE of Downtown Atlanta. We bought the house in a bit of a state but spent some money on it and its as good as New. Well it was, now its been lived in for 10+ years it time for coat of paint.
Life in England
Birmingham (England) was our home for 10 years of our marriage, living in Erdington, about 7 miles NE of Birmingham city centre. We only had the one house together at 61, Woodlands Farm Road. There we had great friends and neighbours who shared our lives. Life was different then, we spent most of our time either working or showing our dogs around the country at various dog shows. Lesley is a true Midlander, born in Bloxwich, Walsall and moving to Sutton Coldfield with her parents when young. I on the other hand traveled with my parents before settling down in Sutton Coldfield which I think as my real home. I was born in St Helens just outside Liverpool and moved to East Molesey outside London when I was 4. Then we moved up to Birmingham and settled in Sutton Coldfield. To view more about our life in England.
Hedgecock Family Tree
This section has been put together by my Dad, William David Hedgecock (David). The family history has been his baby for over 50 years. Painstakingly researching into the depths of the Hedgecock around the world. We have traced our lines to the 4 corners of the world so please take time to review our tree, you never know we may be related. "This covers the history and descendants of Richard Hitchcock and Peter Hitchcock from the latter half of the 18th. Century in the market town of Warrington, England in the County Palatine of Lancaster".
