Pickerings of Foston-on-the-Wolds

It is not known where the Pickerings who appeared in Brigham in the early 1700s came from, but the hamlet is situated in the heartland of the Pickerings of Holderness, so they could well be an offshoot of this much larger family. DNA testing is needed to establish a link.
