  • Note:
    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.

    It would, nevertheless, be interesting to know what became of this John Picton. Could he be the ancestor of all the Picton families of humble status, living in Southern Pembrokeshire from 1750 onwards? Can the Estate and Manor Rolls of the Lordship of Kemes throw any further light on him? One explanation might be that he is the John Picton of Whitechurch in Cemais, whose administration was granted in 1653. The impression from his administration is that he may have left no children, as only his wife is mentioned (see below for more details).
