PIDGEONs of Sidmouth, Devon (John)

John Pidgeon and Mary Hare were married at Sidmouth in 1789. On the marriage record they were described as ‘Sojourners’, so both must have come from another parish – but which?   Sidbury, perhaps?

Of their nine children, four died as infants, and only two daughters are known to have married and had families.
