Pickerings of Helmsley

William Pickering was in all probability the son of William Pickering and Mary Thorpe of Bickley of the 5th generation of the Pickerings of Hackness 2. William senior died in 1748 but left no will. Administration was given to his widow Mary, who made her will in 1775 and died nine years later. Second son John was already dead, and fourth son George did not live to inherit jointly the remaining goods and chattels with first son Jeremiah, once third son William, his sisters and his brother-in-law had received their share. William’s sisters received £40 each, but he was only left £10. This suggests there was a dispute between mother and son. But William had already settled in Helmsley by 1765, not waiting to receive his meagre inheritance.

Only a DNA test will confirm whether the scenario described above applies to the William who became a maltster in Helmsley.
