PIDGEONs of Ilchester, Somerset

Nathaniel Pidgeon married Jane Corry at Ilchester in 1773, before which there does not appear to have been a Pidgeon family at Ilchester. DNA results suggest that Nathaniel came from Devon. He was probably baptised at Dalwood in 1743, ssee the PIDGEONs of Dalwood family tree.

Nathaniel had 3 sons, James, William and Joseph. Although William’s baptism cannot be found, James was a witness at his marriage. James and William were stone masons. It is not known what became of Joseph

William Pidgeon married Jane Grinham at Ilchester in 1808, and they had at least five children, that we know about. Their eldest son, Nathaniel, was a plasterer and went to London, where he met and married Ruth Stagg. They first lived at Clerkenwell, but the family later moved out to Plumstead; a grandson of Nathaniel emigrated to Australia. William & Jane’s younger son, Joseph was a stone mason and he went to work in the quarry at Clifton, Bristol, where he met and married Charlotte Thorn
