PIDGEONs of Lilleshall, Shropshire

Allen Pidgeon and Mary Jebb were married in 1798 at Lilleshall, 10 miles from Shawbury. Allen was born at Wem in 1765, a grandson of William Pidgeon and Henrietta Pidgeon (second cousins) who lived at Shawbury.(see the PIDGEONs of Shawbury family tree).

The initial research for these families was contributed by Carol Oakley, with additional information from Sue Barson & Simon Pidgeon in England, and John Hulme, the family of Bruce Delabere Pidgeon & Peter White in New Zealand. Bruce was a keen member of the Vintage Car Club of New Zealand, but died suddenly in 2002 while returning from an international Bugatti rally in Canterbury, England (having been born in the Region of Canterbury, New Zealand).
