The Pidgeons of Bristol (William Farnell)


William Farnell Pidgeon was born in Bristol, England about 1819.  In 1840, he married Mary Ann (whose surname was either Shaw or Cornock).  She bore him 4 children, but died shortly afterwards in 1854,  William remarried in 1855, and his second wife, Hester Good bore him 2 sons, but both she and the second son died in 1861.  Several years later in 1873, William married yet again.  His third wife, Sara Ann Alway was 20 younger than he, bore him 3 daughters and survived him.

The Pidgeon name in this family is dying out.  The surviving Pidgeons are either females or men in their 50s.
