PIGEONs of Jersey
The marriages of Henry Pigeon in 1701, and of Nicolas Pigeon in 1741 suggest that Pigeons lived on Jersey throughout the 18th century. However a Pigeon family can only be traced from the marriage of Jean François Pigeon in 1795. In the 1830s another family appeared, that of François Pigeon, but evidence suggests that this family came from nearby Normandy, France. It is assumed that these are two separate families.
