PIDGEONs of Dublin, Ireland & Western Australia

John Pidgeon was born in Dublin, Ireland in 1859, and emigrated via England to Western Australia in 1888. Most of the family remained in the Perth and Fremantle area of Western Australia, but a son Brian Francis graduated at Adelaide University in 1907 and became a solicitor in Bendigo, Victoria. His son Richard Hain Pidgeon became a Church of England vicar, and was known as Canon Dick.

Another of John’s grandsons William Page Pidgeon rose to become the Justice of the Supreme Court of Western Australia from 1982 until 2001.
