and The Times (The Times Literary Supplement (London, England), Thursday, January 19, 1911; pg. 22; Issue 471.) states that Gale Pedrick died the previous year after completing his book (Manual of Heraldry) and living in St. Martin's Lane, London.

Check of 1902 work shows that he was living in Teignmouth, and this corresponds with 1901 census records which show John G. Pedrick, b. 1873, an accountant living in Teignmouth. This work shows a familial relationship and research into family histories shows that corresponding relationships. — billinghurst sDrewth 04:51, 14 August 2011 (UTC)Reply
