PIDGEONs of Ottery St Mary, Devon

John PYGEON married Elizabeth LEE at Branscombe in 1600. They settled in the village of Ottery St Mary, where their children were born. John probably came from Sidbury, which is only three miles from both Ottery St Mary and Branscombe, and was probably a son or grandson of one of the “able-bodied men” in the 1569 muster roll. The children of John and Elizabeth who survived to marry did so at Venn Ottery.

This is an isolated family because of the scarcity of records – no further links can be found, possibly because of the loss of early Sidbury records.
