Hello Brian

 

My family "Picton" originates from France.....I know there are many Picton's from Wales.  What country is your Picton from?

 

Best Regards

Hi Yvette

My Picton interest is principally from West Wales - but I do have Excel Spreadsheets of all Picton BMDs in England and Wales, 1837-2005/6.

I have also done a little bit of work on Picton families from France, notably the families from Jarrier in the Savoie who emigrated to Canada.  Happy to share that.

If you do not hear from me immediately - it is because we are away for a week in Pembrokeshire as from tomorrow.

Hello Brian!

 

Oh, how I love the Pembrokeshire area!  My ex-husband's family is from Wales and a few years back I spent a month touring Wales ..... what a beautiful country!

 

I am so excited to hear that you have information on the Picton's from Jarrier!!! My Grandfather, Jean Pierre Picton, was one of the first from Jarrier to emigrate to Canada.  I would love to see the information you have gathered.

 

Have a wonderful week in Pembrokeshire and look forward to hearing from you soon

 

Cheers,

Yvette

I can tell you that Florence Picton married Ernest Riley on 2 April 1923 at Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire.

Their marriage certificate reference is: Hemel Hempstead, June 1923, 3a 1778b.

The "b" reference here is interesting in that it usually means the certificate was either issued late, or subsequently changed with a comment in the comments column of the marriage certificate.

If it was my family - I would buy the full certificate now.
