That is very interesting indeed! I have not read that "Memoir of JA" - thank you for posting the quote. Those Steventon hedgerows must surely have been the inspiration for the one near Winthrop.
Your post gave me the inspiration to check out the Satellite and Streetview images of Steventon in Googlemaps. I don't know exactly where the Rectory was (the church is south of the village, off Frog Lane), but there are quite a few very broad hedgerows in the district, as well 'thin, formal lines of quickset'. How I would love to take a closer look at them!
