The Pidgeons of Norfolk


Evidence has emerged of Pygeons in Norfolk in the early 16th century.  The evidence does not come from parish records, which were only introduced in England in 1538, but has been “submitted after 1991 by a member of the LDS church” to the IGI web site of the Mormons.  Such information is normally considered suspect.  However, it must have come from somewhere, maybe a will or other document, from which dates of birth and marriage have been guessed.  Thus, the dates are probably inaccurate, but there may be some truth in the relationships.  For what it is worth, it has been used to compile this family tree.

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