PIGEONs of Jersey
The marriages of Henry Pigeon in 1701, and of Nicolas Pigeon in 1741 suggest that Pigeons either visited or lived on Jersey throughout the 18th century. However a Pigeon family can only be traced from the marriage of Jean Pigeon
(a Frenchman) in 1795. In the 1830s another family appeared, that of François Pigeon, and this family came from nearby Normandy, France. It is now thought that both these families originated in Normany, and were probably related .
