Pilkington Family

Just recently, I began researching the Pilkington branch of my family. I have run into several spellings of this name including Pilkington, Pilkinton, and Pelkington. I am not sure how these different spellings occurred. They may have been typos, errors in transcription, original writing errors, etc. Who knows? In any case, I have typed the names below just as I found them in the transcription.

Some of the research I have acquired from other researchers, some from transcribed records online, and some (very little) I have actual documentation on. In any case, I suggest you verify all of the information. We are all seeking the truth and it is so easy for any of us to jump to conclusions or make wrong connections. I just want to share the leads I have so that others don't have to tread the same ground that others already have.

This page contains the generations as far as I can figure them out. To see the transcribed documents, click here.
