Born in Durham County, Ontario on 17 July 1842, he was educated at Victoria College (Cobourg) and Bennett College of Medicine and Surgery (Chicago), graduating from the latter in May 1871. He practiced medicine at Milwaukee, Wisconsin for four years then moved to Manitoba in 1876 where he farmed near Emerson. While in Milwaukee, he had married Saloma Helena Studer. They had three children: Mary Ann Bedford (b 1885), George Victor Bedford, Robert Bedford.
