George Pigg, 1787 Ealing, Middlesex

Postby vicky.Ball.25493 » Sun Jul 26, 2015 2:11 pm

Hi there,
I was wondering if you could help me with an ancestor of mine.

His name was George Pigg, I think he was born 1787, Ealing but I can't find any birth or christening records and so have absolutely no information about his parents. He married Martha Henson and they had 4 children. One of which was my ancestor Mary Elizabeth Pigg who was born 1822 in Lambeth.

I know that George had a brother Trueman Davies Pigg which might be a clue to his mother maiden name.

Any help would be much appreciated as I am really stuck and would like to find out who his parents were and go further back if possible.

Thank you so much

On the 1841 census for Lambeth, George was born about 1792, and was ‘born in county’ - that is, born in Surrey, as was Martha. Did they have more than 4 children? There are two living with them in 1841, but no relationships are stated in 1841, so they may not be George and Martha’s daughter and son. Apart from the two children on the census, there are 5 other Lambeth baptisms for children with father George Pigg, a boat builder, and mother Martha.

As for George himself, if he was born in Surrey around 1792, there’s a possible baptism: George Pigg born 8/12/1791, baptised 5/4/1799 St Mary Magdalene, Bermondsey, Surrey, father George Pigg, a tanner of Whites Grounds, and mother Mary. (There’s also a baptism for an Ann Pigg 1797, same church, same parents)

Are you sure Trueman was George’s brother? With his wife Mary, Trueman was a witness at George’s marriage to Martha, and his death entry in 1833 says he was born about 1794, but have you found him in any other records to prove the relationship?

Hello Vicky,

I'm not sure if it's relevant, but I've found a baptism for a George Pigg: baptised October 31st 1770 in Ealing. Parents recorded as Ralph and Mary Pigg.

The siblings of the George that Markymoomoo posted are:Joseph 1768, Mary 1769, Ralph 1772, Rebeccah 1774 and Martha 1775. No Trueman.

There is a George Pigg baptised 5 Apr 1799 in Bermondsey (Surrey) to George & Mary, Occupation Tanner. This may seem late but his birth date is given as 8 Dec1793. But once no obvious Trueman. Siblings at same place are: Ann, Mary and John Benjamin.

the marriage at Newington St Mary 9.12.1823
Trueman Davies Pigg and Mary Potter
Both of this parish but witnesses Emma Burnham and George Ralph Pigg.

George Ralph Pigg born 1801 Ealing boat builder is on the 1861 census at Eton.But possible deaths 1874 give 1790 and 1794.
So we have a George 1787,Trueman Davies 1794 and George Ralph 1801.

There is a George Raplh Pigg at Ealing born 9.12.1791 bapt 25th to Joseph and Elizabeth Pigg.
Probably the son of Ralph and Mary 31.7.1768 Ealing born 18 July.
Another child Elizabeth Sarah for Joseph and Elizabeth at Deptford 20.4.1794 says he is a shipwright Flag Row.
This would sort of fit with Trueman Davies Pigg excise officer but does mean the family could be doted around the country.
Joseph is possibly buried at St Mary Lambeth 24.9.1815 age 48 from Felix St.
Their marriage is at Ealing 13.5.1790 Joseph Pigg and Elizabeth Messer
wit Mary Pigg ,G Pigg ,Helena Jones and E Nelson.

Sorry it doesn't really clinch anything but I thought every little helps,

I have been searching for George Pigg, son of George and Ellen Pigg. Are they any relation? I have an artifact of theirs. To confirm we have the same generation, George (son of George and Ellen) has a sister, do you know her name (I have her name in the artifact I acquired at a garage sale)? My goal is to pass on this artifact to an ancestor of this family. Please reply and we can go from there.
