Origin of the Pickett/Pigot name

the name being Becket for the Co.Cork Pigots.
Source: Edward MacLysaght's "The Surnames of Ireland" sixth edition, 1997
Also, there is a reference to an area and 14 families named Pigot or Piogoid.
Source: "County Kerry, Past and Present"

The last few extractions I have made are from volume 7 and they deal with the 1500's and 1600's and 1700's mostly and the data comes from the newspapers, from official city books and ledgers and I am finding them to be quite interesting to read. In a separate message I am posting one or two things containing many names of people of the times. I am finding several "cores" if you will of Piggot names within the various time frames. The earliest reference I found to any Pigot was William the Sheriff of Shropshire who was called many unflattering things. He was quite cunning if not necessarily nice from what I read. But that was in England and I am concentrating on the name in Cork. The earliest generations I have found involved Alexander, John, George, Richard and Emmanuel. They were all either lawyers or clergymen or doctors. I developed a distinct dislike for Emmanuel, Esq. from some of the documents he crafted or put his name on, but this is perhaps not fair.

I am looking for some reading recommendations on the history of the entire country , especially for the 1600-1800's. I am especially interested in learning what part any Irish may have played in the Jacobite rebellions ( and I know of several between 1700's- 1745). My past reading has focused on the part the Scots played in them and have seen little on the Irish piece. Any suggestions would be very much appreciated.

The best description of the so called "Mother Lode of Irish Genealogy" as listed on the Irish Genealogical Society, International web page, are the O'Kief, Coshe Mang, Slieve Lougher and the Upper Blackwater in Ireland series. Dr. Albert Casey, a pathologist who lived in Alabama, is the man who funded and worked on this project. Ultimately 16 volumes were produced, covering the above areas which touch County Kerry, County Cork, but also include some data on other areas as well.

What is the OKCM film I refer to?
The LDS have the first 14 on microfilm, as well as an all name index to the volumes. I have, as yet, not been able to find where I might access the last two volumes to the work, as they have not been filmed for release to LDS FHC due to, I believe, copyright restrictions. The data included comes from GRO,PRO, parish records, newspapers, personal collections, etc. I do not have the actual URL at this time, as it has changed since I last went there, but the page I am talking about is on rootsweb - last known to be https://sites.rootsweb.com/`irish/igsi/casey.html

this may not work quite right just now so if you go there poke around a bit if it is not immediately in front of you. The IGSI web page is well worth the visit anyway.

Some of this I get and some of it I haven't caught yet.

What is the reference to ( Pen) do you know Denis or anyone?

Index to 5040 Prerogative Grants for Cork and Kerry -Picket/Piggott 1595 to 1810

( from PRO wills, administrations, marriages, letters and commissions)
if 'W'= will, then 'I'= Intestate, or, a person who dies without having a will

Following from Dennis Grant on Genexchange:

The government is just as interested if not moreso in a person who dies intestate as one who does not. Why? Usually there is an even greater opportunity of taxation. The assets of all deceased persons must be declared to the government. To be fair, it is also to ensure that those who are entitled to them by the law of the land actually get them. There are formal rules of distribution in the absence of a will, some of which cannot be over-ridden by a will.

A Prerogative Grant gets its name from the Prerogative Court which made it. I don't know if this court still exists in Ireland or Britain. I think in Britain at least these matter's would now be dealt with by the Probate Division of the High Court of Justice. Thus the expression 'probating a will', Probate Duty, etc.

Excerpt from the Lismore Papers. Volume 3

From the OKCM microfilm, the Lismore Papers are described as having been recorded by Sir Richard Boyle. There seem to be three separate listings in the OKCM works:
Sir Richard Boyle, Lismore Papers 1611-1629
Boyle Papers Excerpts 1632-1637
Lismore Papers, Volume 3, no dates given

I do not know enough yet about Sir Richard Boyle to say who he was and what he did but the data contained in the papers apply to the whole of Ireland, Co. Kerry, Co.Cork and other specific parts as well. Written in the narrative form of a journal or diary.

I send you this entry because I was totally astounded by the dollar value of the transactions mentioned.

from Volume 8 Page 1790, Volume 3 of the Lismore Papers

Piggott and St. Leger names/ with

Well, it helps if you go through your own archived materials sometimes. I do not know when I sent this originally as I printed it before I sent it and no date prints on them that way but once upon a time I posted this:

Sir Robert Piggott to receive bond (Knight of Dysart) in the Queen's Co., which he erected into a manor by patent 7-2-1639. He married first Anne daughter of William St. Leger, son of Sir Anthony St. Leger, Lord Deputy for Ireland, by whom he had two sons and two daughters. Secondly Thomasine daughter of Christopher Peyton, Esq. widow of Captain Baptiste Castillion by whom he had two sons and two daughers. He is now represented by Sir Charles Piggott of Knapton, Queens Co, Baronet

so there is a family connection between those two names. Not connected to my own Pickett to the best of my knowledge.

Somebody on the genforum surname page for Pickett sent me information that states that the Picot, Pichot and Pigot name came from two families that were established in the shire of Cambridge England after the Norman Conquest in 1066. Their lands were confiscated for rebellion during the reign of William Rufus (1087-1100). Another family settled on the border of Wales in Cheshire and it is from this family that the Richard Pigot of Cheshire married the daugher and heiress of Sir Richard Peshale and obtained the Chetwynd estate in Shropshire, held by Piggott for 12 generations but sol by Robert Pigot in 1776. The spelling of the name Pigott was adopted by Robert Pigott of Chetwynd who was Sheriff of Shropshire in 1517 and this is the name Pickett originated from" per K. Lund on the genforum page.

However, I have read someplace that the Pickett name in County Cork first was spelled Becket. Now I do wish I could find where that was stated.

1847 Alms and Work House Records, St. John Co. New Brunswick

One of the many branches of my family tree includes a family consisting of Martin Donnelly and Ellen Burns from Burrishoole Co. Mayo. They came to North America through Canada in the 1840's, this we know from the birth of two of their children. Apparently at some point Ellen Burns Donnelly died and Martin took up with Mary Cunningham - I say took up with because, based on the research Martin and Mary did not actually get married till the day he died, despite having five children in the second relationship.

From two photocopied pages of Alms and Workhouse Records for parts of 1847, from the actual books themselves, as well as a photocopy of a transcribed page from a book along the same lines.

The book is called "The Irish in New Brunswick and their Origins" by Johnson, published 1985. I have one page from this book as a reference copy and the following names appear on this page covering part of July 1847:
All from CORK
DANLLEY, Patrick
SOUCE,Beckey ( she also appears on the actual ledger pages with data listed below,

The copies I have are larger than legal sized paper from the actual ledgers, and the handwriting is a bit hard to read. I notice that the actual ledgers I have the copies of list only women, but the book also incorporates men's names and so assume there was a place for men separate from the women. Under New Brunswick - Minorities - History the only work mentioned in FHLC is The Irish in Atlantic Canada, 1780-1900 Power, Thomas P

Quite incidentally I took the time to read a commemorative plaque in Toronto last week which had been unveiled by the Irish Ambassador or Consul in 1987. It was on the SE corner of King and John Sts and noted that on the NW corner had been situated a group of large quarantine sheds in the same period. At that time (1847) the population of Toronto was 20,000 and in one year 40,000 immigrants passed through this quarantine station having disembarked from ships at the pier on Simcoe St (a few blocks South). They were led straight to the quarantine sheds and those deemed fit were given some minimal rations and transported into the hinterland, there to fend for themselves. Others were 'hospitalised' with a maximum stay of 5 (?) days. Whilst at the station they were given 1/2 lb of bread and meat daily per person. Many died (I will check the figures). The objective of the terrified citizens of Toronto was to send them on there way as humanely as possible with whatever sustenance they could.
