There is probably at least some documentation of the antiquity of field 
systems.  As I recall when the Ordnance Survey started doing aerial 
photography to aid mapping after WWI, archaeologists were able to pick out 
pre-Roman, Celtic field systems based on plowing patterns.  So I'd guess 
someone might have workied out some of this hedgerow age from that 
perspective.

  Many are  linked to medieval field systems and
  some are possibly late Romano  British.  In short they're old and nearly all
  of them appear on  1830-1860 maps but their species rich nature indicates
  they're far  older.  7 woody species in 10m streches is very common - often
  higher  and in 100m stretches 7 woody species - easy.
