Brogan Pickett Norris
I'm a direct new Zealand descendent of a Pickett
My dad's name is pickett
Linda Pickett Dean
my grandfather was William A Pickett his dad name was Felix pickett they lived in Ark
My maiden name was pickett my dad was born in London . I was also made fun of because of the name
Linda Pickett Dean
I also had a lot of people make fun of my last name
my understanding and what my dad got from the dna test was that my family from England went to Ireland for many generations then from there my line went through Canada to end up here in the west coast
All my life, Pickett has been laughed at, made fun of, and rudely mocked, but who is to say this isn't cool?!
My Grandfather was one of thirteen Pickett brothers and sisters, unfortunately there are only three of them left and some I never got to meet as they died before I was born. We all come from the West Midlands in the UK. If anyone came tell me more about my family heritage i would be very grateful.
Three Pickett Brothers Left England late 1600's,,,one went to Mass,one went to the Carolina's and the other went to Virginia...But we are all related no matter what...My Father Was Walter B Pickett From Schoharie, Middleburg,New York. The First Walter Arrived in Virginia 1623 about. My Grandfathers name was Rexford(Ford) Sanford Pickett and His Father was James Sanford Pickett or Sanford Pickett, His Father Was Peter Picket and His Father was Jonathan Picket and His Father was Peter Picket(((( Surname Sanford comes from the Virginia Lineage of Picketts.Not New England or The Carolina's. Only Virginia lineage carry's Walter ...
Good info. 3 Pickett's left out of Liverpool and sailed into Virginia. One went to Mass. another stayed in Virginia and the 3rd went into the Carolina's, from the S. Carolina one, Macajah Pickett married an Irish gal ,Susanah (Thompson), and went to White Oak Creek NC, they had a son Malachi, who went into North Ga. starting a mill in New Hope Ga. and he is my GG-grandfather. The Pickett who stayed in Virginia, would become the grandfather (?) of Gen.George Pickett (Pickett's Charge, Lee's army). Pickett, was originally a French Hugonot (sp) name, being persecuted, they went into England but mostly Ireland and Scotland. and from there into the states, predominantly the south as it is a Protestant name. Our Pickett's prior to Virginia were from Liverpool and Lancashire. Scoundrel types, crooked, gamblers, drinkers...typical fun loving folk and its been handed down in the DNA obviously. Cheers to you! Ta'
My mother was a Pickett, my grandfather came from England.
I am a Pickett living in Connecticut, US and am interested in learning more about our interesting family name. I believe we arrived here in the US in Marblehead, MA, Virginia and in the Carolinas pre revolutionary war period. Anybody has any additional history about Pickett origin in the US?
I am a Pickett living in Virginia, my family came here from the West Indies and arrived in the Carolinas as well.
i am a pickett my family came from cuba and the west indies some living in the states
My maiden name was Pickett. I'm from Australia and it's not a very common name here. My fathers paternal line at least a few generations back are of mostly Irish/ Scottish stock.. I hated the name as a kid because it was made fun of but it's interesting to find out where it might have originated.
see my comment (above) under Joy Ann Pickett's posting. It should help you. I am not sure of the 3 brother's names, but, the one that went into Mass. could very well be your direct ancestor. You therefore also have access to Pickett's Mill battlefield, at the Mill in New Hope Ga. which is one of the last Confederate victories before Atlanta fell to the yankees.
Just in case youre into the history.
I hope this helps.. cheers..Ta'
