Mogridge - Hill and Mogridge – Cann Weddings in Pilton (1936 and 1945)


On Saturday 22nd February 1936 the wedding took place at St Mary’s Church, Pilton, between Reginald Charles Mogridge and Violet Phyllis Hill. Both bride and groom lived in Mill Road, Barnstaple. Reginald was the son of Frederick Mogridge, a fisherman, and the then late Mrs Tabitha Mogridge of 1 Mill Road. Violet was the second daughter of Mr and Mrs Arthur Hill of 25, Mill Road.
A newspaper cutting reporting the wedding in the North Devon Journal of 27th February 1936 and photographs of the wedding and the parents of the groom were inherited by Keri Lambert, the great grand-daughter of Fred and Tabitha Mogridge, in 2020.
After World War II, on 8th December 1945, Reginald’s brother, Stanley, was married to Alice A Cann, the second daughter of Mr and Mrs R H Cann of 9 Bradiford also at St Mary’s Church, Pilton. At both weddings the Vicar of Pilton, Rev. John Harrison, officiated and Tom Mogridge, the brother of Reginald and Stanley, was the best man.
A later photograph of Alice Mogridge can already be found on The Pilton Story archive.

Particular thanks are due to Keri Lambert for sharing the story and photographs, and also to the British Newspaper Archive and the North Devon Journal. We would love to have more information about both families and their descendants.
