I'm a relation of the Pickards from Leeds, I've got a direct connection to Jeremiah Pickard B.1730 to John Pickard and Mary Grocer and Baptised in St Peters, Leeds. Jeremiah is my 6th Great Grandfather on my mother's side.
I've been trying to trace them back further and believe I've got to 1607 and that the Pickards, or St least Jeremiah's line originates around Foleshill, Warwickshire with a Francis Pickard B.1607
Please feel free to email me on this if you'd like any information etc, I'm keen to find living relatives and confirm what I've got so far.
Message me for my email :)
