PIDGEONs of Birmingham, Warwickshire

Samuel Pidgeon and Mary Phillips were married at Winchcombe in 1825. Although Samuel was born at Wellington, Shropshire it is believed that he was the son of Samuel Pidgeon of Winchcombe (1773-1849) – see the Pidgeons of Winchcombe. Samuel and Mary gave birth to 6 sons and 6 daughters, and moved to Birmingham around 1835.

Samuel, and his sons James and Enos, were brick and tile makers. With the expansion of Birmingham during the industrial revolution, there was a great demand for bricks to build houses and factories. Samuel’s brickworks was on Ladypool Road, Balsall Heath, and by 1851 he employed 12 men and boys there. He was superseded by his eldest son James. Family lore says that son Enos liked to drink, gamble and chase the ladies so much, that in 1857 his father suggested he might like to forge a new life in Australia.

Enos arrived in Australia near Melbourne, Victoria in March 1858, having lost what money he set out with by gambling on the ship. But in Australia, as in Birmingham, the population was increasing rapidly, and brick makers were as much in demand. By 1864, he had met and married Elizabeth Jenkinson, the daughter of a convict found guilty at the Old Bailey of larceny and sentenced to 7 years’ transportation to van Diemen’s Land, where he arrived in January 1840.

The birth places of the 13 children of Enos and Elizabeth tell the tale of a slow migration northwards through New South Wales to Toowoomba, Queensland near where Enos and his sons were working Pidgeon’s Brickworks at the turn of the 20th century.
