Pickerings of Coverdale

The members of this family lived in Swaledale and Wensleydale, but their main concentration was in Coverdale. Those who became non-conformist moved further afield: Robert of the 4th generation (whose parentage is not confirmed) settled in York and John of the 5th generation in Sandhutton near Thirsk.

The relationship between the 1st and 3rd generations is based on circumstantial evidence; there were other Pickering couples in the area who could have been the parents of William, Robert and John. A search of the early non-conformist records that are not available online and a DNA test should reveal more information on this family.
