The Pidgeons of Hertfordshire-2


These small, early trees have been assembled from parish records only.  As such, there are possible errors resulting from wrong guesses.  Parish records in England commenced in 1538, following the split with Rome.  Initially, they were not always taken seriously and many events were not recorded.  Further lapses occurred during the Civil War (16431647) and the following Commonwealth period until about 1653.  Many of the early records have also been lost or accidentally destroyed.  There are, therefore, many missing records of events, which might otherwise confirm my guesses, or link the different trees.

The baptism of Francis PYGEON at Watford in 1539 is one of the very earliest records.  Whether he was the brother of John PYGEON who married Jane PRATT is far from certain, but very possible.  Similar uncertain relationships are also shown with a ?  The only clue is often the geographical proximity, such as Little Wymondley & Baldock, Shenley & Ridge, and North Mimms, Hatfield & Little Berkhampstead.

Notes:    ab. = about,  b. = born,  bp. = baptised,  bu. = buried,  d. = died,  m. = married,  (+) = extra-marital relationship
