Irish PIDGEONs of Liverpool, Lancashire

Thomas Pidgeon was born in Dublin. He married Margaret Warren (or Warden?) in Ireland and their son Thomas was born there, before all three of them came over to England about 1844. They settled in Liverpool, where Thomas found work as a labourer in the docks, and later worked for a bricklayer.

No Irish records can be found for either the births of Thomas and his son, or for his marriage.
