PIDGEONs of Wolverhampton, Staffordshire

Henry Pidgeon and Elizabeth Wilcox were married at Ashby-de-la-Zouch in 1837. Henry was born at Shifnal in 1809, the son of Hanry Pidgeon and Sophia Cobb (see the PIDGEONs of Shifnal family tree). He was a journeyman carpenter, and his job took him to may places, before he settled at Bilston, near Wolverhampton. His sons Henry William and James eventually moved into Wolverhampton.
