The Piggot/Pickett Family of Berkshire

 

 

By Richard L. Tolman, Ph. D.

 

    The 18th and 19th century Piggot/Pickett family of Berkshire lived for generations in the hamlet called ‘Oare’; earlier Piggots lived in the nearby town of Thatcham and nearby village of Hampstead-Norreys.   Oare is near the village of Courage (now Curridge) which in turn is near and south of the village of Chieveley, northwest of the village of Thatcham and southwest of the village of Hampstead-Norreys. Chieveley is 4 miles north of Newbury, Berkshire.   The villages of Curridge and Chieveley constituted the Parish of Chieveley.

    James Piggot, b. 1794 (a woodcutter) and Mary (née Armstrong) Piggot/Pickett had seven children, but three died in childhood and the surviving three sons (William Armstrong, George and Mathew with their wives and families, if applicable) all emigrated to America (Tooele County, Utah) in 1849,11855,2 and 1862,3 respectively; the surviving daughter Elizabeth remained in England.  Their mother Mary died in 1834 and James remarried Hannah Cassell who bore him one son Charles, who also stayed in England.

    Early in James’ life he spelled his name ‘Piggot’ (e.g. 1841 England census)4, but later the name was spelled ‘Picket/Pickett’ (e.g. 1851 England census)5; his sons also initially spelled their name ‘Piggot’ and later used the ‘Pickett’ spelling.

    Dear Dr Richard Tolman,

    I was very interested to read your genealogical history found on the internet for the Pickett family from Berkshire. I am wondering whether you and I might perhaps be distant cousins via my own recently discovered links to the Pickett family of Hampstead Norreys and Hermitage in Berkshire.

    For a long time I had a big brick wall with my orphaned great-grandfather George Jubbie alias George Strange (1893-1959, but have recently discovered that he was the illegitimate son of Ellen Strange (1861-1913), and she was one daughter of Mary Pickett (1824-1878) and Henry Edward Strange (1820-1894) from Hampstead Norris/Hermitage.

    My 3xgreat-grandmother, Mary Pickett, 1824-1878, appears to be one of ten children of William Pickett (1781-1848) and Ann Smith (1784-1861). William Pickett and Ann Smith were married in 1805 at the Chapel of St Bartholomew otherwise known as Oare Chapel near Chievely in Berkshire.

    Most of their ten children seemed to have moved to the Hackney Shoreditch area of London Middlesex England during the 1850s and subsequently there were a great many Pickett/Piggott descendants of this family found in the censuses for that particular area of London and then later in bordering Oxfordshire.

    Unfortunately, I cannot find a baptism for William Pickett circa 1781 so have no idea how his parents might have been related to your Berkshire Pickett’s. As such, I was wondering whether you have ever had any genetic DNA tests registered with FamilyTreeDNA.com or GedMatch.com, etc? I myself have had such tests taken, and so I could easily compare our genomes to look for a genetic match, but only of course if you too have such results available!

    I look forward to receiving your kind reply, any further information that may be able to help me with, and perhaps proving/disproving any distant genetic kinship between our two families.
    Yours sincerely,

    Hi Paul,
    I’m finally back at my desk and have had a chance to check out my Pickett/Piggot file.
    To answer previous questions first: we are undoubtedly cousins–Chieveley and Hampstead Norreys are just too small for it to be otherwise and no, I have not done any DNA studies on the Picketts–I don’t even know any living individuals with the Pickett surname.
    I checked out FamilySearch and found at least 6 William Pickett datapoints from the 1780’s in Berkshire, but absolutely nothing is resolved on FamilyTree, so FamilySearch is useless. I descend from James Piggot (b. 1758)/Mary Slade as it is described in the 29deadpeople essay; my old research indicates James comes from William Piggot (b.1725)/Anne Stamp and they also had a son Thomas who I’m guessing could be the father of your William (b.1781), but I’ll have to search the Chieveley registers again. I’m going to RootsTech (genealogy conference in SLC) next week and have a couple days in the FHL there (they have the Chieveley registers), so I will put this on my TODO list. Hopefully we can figure this out.
    Sincerely your cousin Dick
    P.S. Would you mind if I put your first query and my response on the 29deadpeople comment line: it will hopefully attract the attention of other picket descendants and is a good way for me to keep track of my genealogical correspondents? (I am drowning in paper)
