Notes for Henry Pidoux:
From cousin Daisy (Pidoux) Fell in February 1999, I received the following photocopy of a funeral notice, which was among materials she received from Uncle John Pidoux and which he had received from Doris Poole who had received it from David Bland, (of the Burton-on Trent branch of the family).
Headed "Daily Express" - Christmas Day, 1909 :
"Henry Pidoux, who died at Burton yesterday, aged eighty-two, sang with a select choir by special command before Queen Victoria many years ago, and, joining the Navy, fought in the Crimea.He was one of the crew that manned the royal yacht when Queen Victoria paid her first visit to Scotland."
From information received via Geoff Pidoux who forwarded a copy of a letter he received from Ian Pidoux, Henry Pidoux married Sarah Louisa Dowdeswell and they had four sons, whom he names so that I am able to enter them in the family page, and also five daughters.
In the Registrar's Index of Deaths there is a listing of the death of Sarah Louisa Pidoux, died at Burton-on-Trent, recorded in the Jan-March Quarter 1909, vol 6b Page 287.
