Wandsworth Piggin Family

Jonathan (or John) Piggin
* circa 1795 near Norwich
% Mary Ann Barnes ("Mary") at St Augustine 1820.02.21 (see Norfolk Genealogy Index)

In the 1841 census they appear as a group of five people living at Thorofare Yard: John Piggin, 45, labourer, Mary Ann, 40, and Charlotte, Matilda (?) and William.
In the 1851 census, the family is at Castle Ditches: John Piggen, 59, weaver, Mary A, and only William, 14, is at home.

At the 1842 marriage at right, he is described as John Piggin, weaver. At the 1863 marriage right, his trade is given as "printer", although this is questionable: he may have been the John Piggin that died aged 66 in Norwich in 1856.

Is a connection possible to the address Barnes Yard, where other members of Piggin family lived in Norwich?

At least some entries (e.g. Charlotta and Benjamin christenings) give his name as "Jonathan", and the inheritance of "Jonathan" by the son strongly suggests this is the correct name. But this man is apparently not the contemporary Jonathan Piggin who married a Mary Lake.
