The name Coultish is extremely rare. FamilySearch reveals a John Coultish in the Lancashire parish of Tunstall and Melling registering the birth of his son Thomas on 9 November 1638, but there is no further record of the name in that area. Its first appearance in the West Riding of Yorkshire is in 1656, when the housewright James Coultish married Dorothy in Pontefract. The earliest mention of the name in the East Riding is in Market Weighton in 1681 on the occasion of the marriage of Robert Coultish to Barbara Thirsk. It is possible that Robert and Barbara were ancestors of Thomas Coultish of Breighton, as the village is only 10 kms. from Market Weighton. The connection between Thomas and the William Coultish who died in Broomfleet in 1783 seems beyond doubt, as the notes summarising the probate of William’s will at the East Riding of Yorkshire Archives refer to him as “William Coultish of Breighton” (though the actual document does not mention the village).

The family name recorded on William’s will is Coultish, but the probate refers to his son as “William Coultas otherwise Coultish”, and the variants of the latter’s surname are almost as many as the events recorded: Coulties (baptism 1789), Coultis (marriage 1815), Coultas (daughter Mary’s birth 1816), Coltish (daughter Jane’s birth 1820), Coultish (daughter Sarah’s birth 1822), Coltish again (son William’s birth 1828) and back to Coultish (daughter Anne’s birth 1836 and daughter Caroline’s birth 1839).  This suggests that the name Coultish is a variant of the already established surname Coultas, originally Scottish but relatively common in Yorkshire. For the sake of continuity the name Coultish has been used throughout the generations of this family.

The connection between the Coultish and Pickering families is through my paternal grandparents, Mabel Elsie Coultish and Richard Alexander Pickering, who presumably met when Mabel, previously living with her grandmother in Broomfleet, moved to Hull to live with her mother and step father in the early 1900s.
