The PIDGEONs of Thorncombe – Whitchurch, Dorset branch


Henry Pidgeon was born in 1830 at Thorncombe, Dorset, the son of Henry Pidgeon and Elizabeth Quinton (see the PIDGEONs of Yarcombe & Thorncombe family tree).  In 1854 he married Betsy Eliza Turner of Whitchurch Canonicorum, a parish about 5 miles south of Thorncombe.  At first they lived at Whitchurch, but later moved to Marshwood, then Symondsbury, and finally Chideock, all villages in the same part of west Dorset, and in the registration district of Bridport.

Whitchurch was named after the church of St Wite (St Candida in Latin), whose shrine is in the church, the only one to have survived the Reformation with its relicts intact, except for that of Edward the Confessor in Westminster Abbey.  The name of Canonicorum (of the canons) was added because the Bishops of Sarum (Salisbury) and Wells were granted a half of the manor each by Edward the Confessor.
