The Picketts are connected to our families by marriage to the Wrights and to the Hattins. They were thought of as a Sandford family for many generations, though it is likely that the Picketts did not originate in Devonshire. The name is common in Wiltshire and Somerset. Early appearances in Devon are around Plymouth. There are suggestions that our Sandford Picketts were in nearby West Anstey prior to moving to Sandford, but there is no evidence for that. We can be certain that some time between 1793 and 1800 William Pickett, his wife Deborah, née Clapp and their children William, John, Richard, Deborah and Mary had taken up residence in the Lamb Inn, Sandford. The Rev. George Bent's local census in 1793 has no mention of the Picketts, but they appear in his next one in 1800. There are no Picketts living in the parish now. The Picketts are grouped by generation. Click on the thumbnails to see a larger version of the picture.
