PIDGEONs of Lighthorne, Warwickshire

Thomas Pidgeon and Mary Jeffs were married at Stratford upom Avon in 1825. Thomas was born at Radway in 1796 (see the PIDGEONs of Radway family tree), and Mary at Lighthorne in 1804. They settled at Lighthorne, where Thomas was an agricultural labourer, but later generations move into the cities, and most now live in Birmingham.
