Girls name "Pedigon"
I found a potential addition to the family tree, name of PEDIGON Poulsofor, (which I assumed to be a male name,) who married in 1650. But the other half of the marriage was a Willyam POPE, so Pedigon has to have been female. I have seen a photographic image of the actual Parish Register, and the transcription is correct.
Has anyone come across the name Pedigon/Paddigan/Pedigan? It seems to have been used a few times in Devon & Gloucestershire U.K. but where ever did it come from??
I was hoping it might have a saints or place name origin, or even be very common in a particular country, but haven't found a link as yet.
My contention is that the Poulsofar line were Huguenots who came into UK from Europe, but I have no idea of profession or occupation, as yet.
Has anyone ever come across it? Can anyone suggest the derivation?
All suggestions gratefully received.
