Bickerton Family History
I have been researching my own Bickerton family tree for about 10 years and have traced my line back to my 5 x Great Grandfather Samuel Bickerton born 1718 and died 1793 in Marchwiel, Denbighshire. He was a farmer in Bilmarsh, Myddle, Shropshire from at least 1753 until he moved with his family to Erbistock, Denbighshire in 1773, then later to Stryt-yr-hwch, Denbighshire. He was also a Presbyterian which has equally hindered and helped my research. I believe his father was Thomas Bickerton who, according to the churchwarden accounts of Myddle, lived in the hamlet of Bilmarsh immediately before Samuel appears in the accounts. Thomas Bickerton married Sarah Thomas in 1715 in Oswestry, Shropshire. I also believe Samuel's Grandfather was John Bickerton who has a small mention in Richard Gough's "The History Of Myddle". In about 1701 it says John Bickerton, a cheshire man, was a subtenant of Broomhurst Farm. John Bickerton died in 1729 in Myddle, Shropshire. Please contact me if you have any questions - Email.
