Pickerings of York

The members of this family were non-conformists. It is possible that they descend from the Pickerings of Coverdale, and Robert followed his presumed uncle Richard by becoming a non-conformist.

A search of the early non-conformist records that are not available online and a DNA test should reveal more information on this family.
