PICKETT Family History

This interesting name is of Norman origin, introduced into England after the Conquest of 1066 in the form of a personal name "Pic", here with the diminutive suffixes "et" or "ot", and recorded as "Picot, Pigot" and Piket". The name is ultimately of Germanic derivation, from "pic", meaning "sharp", or "pointed", which was a common element in names meaning for instance, residence near a "pointed hill", use of a particular sharp or pointed tool or weapon, or a nickname for a tall, thin person. The name development has included: William Piket (1177, Berkshire); Waubert Pyket (1277, London); and Peter Pygot (1285, Cambridgeshire).

My second great grandfather is Michael Pickett. He was a Native of Ireland (according to his headstone) but I don't know whereabouts in Ireland. I would love to trace him back to his exact place of origin. I believe he arrived in Canada during the famine, having survived the passage over. He married Margaret O'Brien in 1848. They raised 10 children together. Michael farmed the land in Arthus/Kenilworth (Wellington County).
