JOHN PICTON, who is mentioned as a son of John ap Owen Picton in Pembrokeshire Plea Rolls No. 50; and who is probably the same John Picton, gent., who in 1636, together with Owen Picton and Owen's wife, Elizabeth Picton, levied to Thomas Picton a fine of two messuages and 196 acres of land in Nevern [Francis Green, The Pictons of Poyston, West Wales Historical Records, 1924, Volume X, p. 45]. It has been suggested that this John Picton could have been the ancestor of the Whitechurch branch of the family; an incorrect suggestion, as discussed by Francis Green in his article on the family [West Wales Historical Records, Volume X, 1924]. He would be very young to be a witness on a fine of 1636, even if he was the eldest son of Owen Picton of Trellyfaint by his second marriage to Elizabeth Bowen, which probably took place around 1625.1
