PIDGEONs of Marylebone, London & Lincolnshire

John Pidgeon and Ann Brotherton were married in London in 1808. Nine children were born to them in the parish of St Marylebone between 1808 and 1829, including a son Charles in 1815. The descendants of Charles believed he came from Devon, but he was born in London, and it was his father John who came from Devon. As John died in 1849, he did not live through any census which recorded his birthplace, like his wife Ann, who was recorded in the 1851 census as being born at Woodstock, Oxfordshire.

John was probably the eldest son of Henry Walters Pidgeon and Sarah Pidgeon of Honiton, Devon (see the Pidgeons of Awliscombe family tree). Henry’s parents were William Pidgeon and Susanna Walters. John’s son Charles named one of his sons John Walters, thus providing the connection between the Devon and London families. John was baptised at Honiton in 1781. According to her recorded ages, Ann Brotherton was born about 1784. They would have been 27 and 24 years old, respectively, when they married, both having moved up to London from their respective counties.

Their son Charles, born in 1815, became an engine driver for the Great Western Railway (GWR), whose main line ran from London, Paddington to Bristol via Reading, Didcot and Swindon. The family legend says that Charles was “a bit of a lad” and attracted the young ladies in many of these towns through which he steamed. One of these ladies was Leah Tripp of Didcot, Berkshire. In 1849 she gave birth to an illegitimate son whom she named Charles John Pidgeon Tripp. In 1852 she bore a daughter Mary Jane Tripp.

Charles then changed railway companies and he, Leah and the family moved to Boston, Lincolnshire, where no one knew that Charles and Leah were not married, and where Leah and the children assumed the name of Pidgeon. In Boston, the family flourished with another six children, all proudly baptised as Pidgeons. One of these they named John Walters, as motioned above. Charles and Leah were eventually married in 1865 – in London, far away from the prying eyes of Boston, who might have wondered why such a wedding was necessary!

The illegitimate children of Charles and Leah were well treated by their parents. One of them, however was much less generous to her own illegitimate child. Mary Jane (the one baptised as a Tripp) left Boston and crossed the Pennines to Bolton, Lancashire in order to work in the cotton mills. She became pregnant at the unmarried age of 17, and bore a son, Walter Pidgeon. Young Walter was raised by his grandparents Charles and Leah, and his uncle John Walters. Meanwhile, still in Bolton, his mother married Joseph Woods, brought him home to Boston and bore him 9 “Wooden” children, but there was never any room in the “forest” for young Walter. Walter finally followed his uncle Albert to Swanscombe, Kent, where he worked as a labourer in a cement works and married his bride Jane Hinton in nearby Gravesend.

Meanwhile, many of the other children of John and Ann grew up and prospered in Marylebone and other parts of London, using both Pidgeon and Pigeon spellings of the surname. Walter was the first of several Hackney coachmen and cab drivers. Two of his sons joined the cavalry of the 10th Hussars, one of them eventually settling in Dublin and getting lost in the mists of Irish history. Two granddaughters of John and Ann married licensed victuallers, one of them managing the Red Lion pub in Hanway Street, Marylebone.
