The Pidgeons of Kentisbeare & Banks Peninsula, NZ


Philip PIDGEON was baptised at Kentisbeare, Devon in 1824, the son of Rebecca and William PIDGEON.  (See the Pidgeons of Awliscombe family tree)  In 1841 he was an “Apprentice” living with John BROOM, a farmer and his family at Kentisbeare.  Philip may have joined the Royal Navy, but however he got to New Zealand, he had settled at Purple Peak, Long Bay near Akaroa on the Banks Peninsula by 1852.  The following year he married Ann Magee, who had sailed to New Zealand on the Duke of Bronte with her parents, three sisters and a brother, who also settled in Long Bay.  Nearly all the descendants of Philip and Ann remained in New Zealand, most continuing to live on the Banks Peninsular at places such as Akaroa, German Bay (renamed Takamatua in 1915), Duvauchelle, Okains Bay and Little River.  Later, many moved out on to the Canterbury plains, including Christchurch, and some to other places on both islands of New Zealand.

All the details of the descendants of Philip and Ann were provided by Alana Pidgeon.
