Sorry to be so late in responding. I have not been able to find the death of Captain Hedley V. Hughes. He was a brother to Captain William O. Hughes who died in 1910 (and still alive then). William O. Hughes' sons were George Hughes, Harry Hughes, Graham Hughes and William Arnold Hughes. Graham Hughes was Master of the Princess Kathleen when she sank in Alaska in 1952. I have included the last paragraph of an article from the Victoria Colonist noting the death of William O. Hughes in 1910.
"He was born at Digby, Nova Scotia, 61 years ago, and leaves a widow and five children: George Hughes, Harry Hughes (recently Pilot on the steamer Princess Beatrice), Graham Hughes, William Arnold Hughes, and Mrs. Murray, of Hillside Avenue. He leaves a brother, Captain Hedley Hughes, resident at Vancouver, BC, and three sisters: Mrs. (Captain) Baines of Victoria, BC, Mrs. Allan of Boston, Mass., USA, and Mrs. Smith, of Digby, Nova Scotia.
