East Riding

The map below shows the parishes of the East Riding of Yorkshire according to the pre 1832 parish boundaries. Those in blue indicate where Pickering families lived or where a family event was celebrated in the parish church or a sub-parish’s chapel.

The following pages give a short history of the parishes, sub-parishes and localities where the Pickerings took up residence for a number of generations and/or where they and the prominent families they were associated with left their mark. The parishes in which only an odd baptism, marriage or burial took place have not been studied.
