So the above 1646 Will  we have a band of 4 brothers and possibly a sister….


BERNARD PICKERING   married Elizabeth Finchett on February 14, 1635 at St. Peter, Chester.



            “my brother Johns 3 daughters”



            “his children”



            “children”  Sarah Pickering   John Pickering


? (SISTER PICKERING)   married John Aldcock.

(note this is base on the assumption that “my brother John aldcoke” is actually a brother in law)


My brother in law – Thomas ffinchett also mentioned as My brother Tho. ffinchett
My brother John Aldcoke
