Puckerings of Bainton

The Puckerings of Bainton are contemporaries of the Puckerings of Kirby Underdale and are possibly an offshoot of that family, who in turn probably descended from the Pickerings of Killington.

Circumstantial evidence suggests that the Puckerings were kinsmen of the Greystokes, who took their name from the town of the same name in Cumberland, and had vast holdings in the northernmost counties of England, but also in the North and East Ridings of Yorkshire. It is the association of the Puckerings and the Greystokes that probably explains the extent of the former family’s spread over the two Ridings.
