Pickerings of Killington, Ellerton and Titchmarsh

It was Peter III, the last of the de Brus of Skelton branch, who brought William de Pickering to Westmorland to serve as constable and later steward on his estates in Kendale. In c1260 he enfeoffed William of his late brother’s manor of Killington, together with Firbank, and Killington manor was to remain in the Pickering family continuously until 1582, when Anne, the last representative of the senior Pickering line, died.   Ruth Margaret Blakely thinks it possible that William de Brus, the younger son of Adam I, may have given rise to the Pickerings of Killington and that William de Pickering was probably drawn from this junior line (see Origins).
