Fildews of Honiton


John PIDGEON and Ann HODY were married in 1732 at Hawkchurch, Devon where two of their five children were baptised.  But they went to live in Honiton, where their other children were born.  Their youngest daughter Betty married William FILDEW in 1767 and, with 10 children, they founded the FILDEW family.
