Pickering Family Migrations

"It is an interesting fact that the northern counties, as in ancient times, continue to be the home of the name; for there are none mentioned in this work who hold land in Cornwall, Devon, Dorset, Essex, Hereford, Kent, Monmouth, Salop, Somerset, Surrey, Susses, Wilts, or Worcester." In Yorkshire, the ancient seat of the Pickering name it lists only 28 proprieters.
