PIDGEONs of Australia (Enos)

Enos Pidgeon was born in England in 1832, the son of a Birmingham brickmaker – see the PIDGEONs of Birmingham (Samuel) family tree. Family lore says that son Enos liked to drink, gamble and chase the ladies so much, that in 1857 his father suggested he might like to forge a new life in Australia.

Enos arrived in Australia near Melbourne, Victoria in March 1858, having lost what money he set out with by gambling on the ship. But in Australia, as in Birmingham, the population was increasing rapidly, and brick makers were as much in demand. By 1864, he had met and married Elizabeth Jenkinson, the daughter of a convict found guilty at the Old Bailey of larceny and sentenced to 7 years’ transportation to van Diemen’s Land, where he arrived in January 1840.

The birthplaces of Enos’ and Elizabeth’s children tell the tale of a slow migration northwards through New South Wales, until they arrived near Toowoomba, Queensland where Enos and his sons were working Pidgeon’s Brickworks at the turn of the 20th century.
