Pickerings / Puckerings of Flamborough

The first ten generations of this tree are made up of Pickerings documented as living in the area of Flamborough.  However, proof of their belonging to the same family or of the relationship between the siblings has not always been found.  Firm documentary evidence of the Pickerings / Puckerings of Flamborough exists from William Pickering (11th generation) onwards, but before that point this tree should be considered a draft.
