PIGEONs of Wiveton and Bale, Norfolk

These are just two of many Pigeon families living in north Norfolk in the 16th century, which may be descended from the PIDGEONs of East Beckham.

Wiveton and Bale are two villages situated just a few miles west of East Beckham. At Wiveton, Richard Pigeon was the father of several children baptised there in the 1560s, and at Bale, Thomas Pigeon was the father of children baptised there in the 1570s. Thomas married Elizabeth Horsman at Aldborough (about 4 miles south of East Beckham) in 1569. Quite possibly, both Richard and Thomas came from East Beckham.
