Pickerings of Fylingdales

northern edge of Fylingdales Moor,
showing Pickering farms and old and new St. Stephen’s churches

The Pickerings of Fylingdales are an offshoot of the Pickerings of Hackness. Although a number of Hackness Pickerings came and went, the Hodgson-Pickerings were the only ones who settled permanently in the area. They farmed the windswept slopes of the northern edge of Fylingdales Moor at Stoupe Brow (sometimes called Stow Brow), Thorney Brow and Low Flask, later moving further north to Eskdale, Whitby and beyond. Family events took place at old St. Stephen’s church near Raw and at new St. Stephen’s, built in 1870 at Robin Hood’s Bay to replace the old one.
