Welcome to a Pickens Family Home Page! The cousins
supporting this page are interested in researching and sharing
information about the children of Robert and Esther Pickens.
"There seems to be some support for the claim that one ROBERT
PICON, a Scotchman or Briton at the court of France was a
Protestant who fled from Scotland in 1661 to avoid persecution of
Charles II. In France he is said to have married Madam Jean
Bonneau, also a Protestant. They fled France after the revocation
of the Edict of Nantes by Louis XIV in 1685. Tradition continues
that they went to Scotland, later to North Ireland." _Pickens
Families of the South_ by E. M. Sharp, 1963
