Pickerings of Cawton

The connection between the Pickerings of Oswaldkirk and the Pickerings who lived in the village of Cawton and were buried in the parishes of Gilling East and Hovingham is entirely hypothetical. However, circumstantial evidence points to a link:
• the proximity of Cawton to Oswaldkirk,
• the recurrence of the name George down the generations,
• the name Hester, which is unique to the Oswaldkirk and Cawton Pickerings,
• the relative wealth of the family.

Only a Y-DNA test will establish whether the two families are related. I therefore encourage the male descendants of the later Pickerings of Cawton (who are relatively sure that there is no “non paternal event” in their line) to take the test.
