Pickerings of Kirkby Wharfe

Pickerings appear in the first pages of the Kirby Wharfe parish registers, which suggests they were already settled in the area before 1586. The first Pickerings whose lines can be traced are Francis and Philip, who could have been the sons of Henry, William or Robert, who died in the parish before the end of 1500s. For the sake of convenience they are considered to be brothers.

Francis described himself as a “labourer”, but he left a house and a tenement in his will, and a lengthy inventory of his goods and chattels was drawn up after his death. Philip died before making a will, but an inventory of similar length was attached to his administration. This suggests that they both came from a wealthy families. There were at the time both Killington and Barlby Pickerings in many of the surrounding parishes; only a DNA test will establish from which ancient family the Pickerings of Kirkby Wharfe descend.
