    Notes 
    • The Jones family is reputed to be Welsh, from Llandudno, Wales. However on record both Margaret and William cite their births in England on Census records. Repeatedly we have come across relatives that state the Jones were Welsh, it's even been suggested the family had lovely singing voices. The Welsh reference was also noted by Hannah May Hedgecoe Rider who stated in 2001 in a letter to Ray Pleau that John Thomas Hitchcock took his wife Martha Jones and young Hannah May to Llandudno, Wales for a very posh wedding with the Jones side of the family in about 1905.

    Notes 
    • Surname Variation: Upon immigration the boys were teased for their surname which encouraged some of them to change their names. Hitchcock, Hedgecock and Hedgecoe were all used by the children of Martha Jones and John Thomas Hitckcock.
    • Immigration: John Thomas Hitchcock and son Alec arrived 18 Aug 1910 aboard the 'Corsican' departing from Liverpool, England and arriving in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. The rest of the family crossed in 1911, with exception of daughter Charlotte Emma Hitchcock Rowlands and son Thomas Henry 'Harry' Hitchcock who remained in England.
      The rest of the Hitchcock family came aboard the ship 'The Royal Edward' departing from Avonmouth, England and arriving in Quebec, Canada on 10 May 1911. Included in the family were Martha Jones Hitchcock and her children Annie Elizabeth, James Frederick Bart, Hannah May, Ethel Maud, Ernest Arthur, Edward Benjamin, and Martha Beatrice.
    • Research collaboration with our thanks and appreciation to Ray Pleau, who was a dedicated genealogist that began researching the Hedgecoe - Hitchcock family and helped us get our start on these Family Tree branches. May he rest in peace.
