Pickburn History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

Early Origins of the Pickburn family

The surname Pickburn was first found in Yorkshire where they held a family seat. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the year 1470 when Thomas Huckebone appeared on the tax rolls for that shire.
