Picton Pedigree Chart taken from the Bronwydd MS at the Carmarthen Record Office. The
Bronwydd MS were compiled in about 1765 and in this case are copies of Welsh pedigrees in
the Protheroe Collection at the College of Arms compiled by David Edwardes around 1685.
Although there are few dates on this MS it is possible to assign dates to the individuals
from contemporary documents which survive. This places Philip Picton to around 1260/1280
and the individuals at the bottom of the pedigree to around the second half of the
Access Picton Family Branches
Below are known Picton families with origins in Pembrokeshire and Carmarthenshire. They
are believed descendant from Philip de Picton born about 1260 and lived at Newport,
Advenae Pembr. at the top of the pedigree was used by the heralds to show that the families
were of non-native Welsh origin, and so had emigrated into Wales some time after the Norman
conquest of 1066. Advenae is a difficult word to translate - but is approximately a
"foreigner". Welsh pedigrees can therefore be divided into native Welsh pedigrees and
those of advenae.

This is a research project in progress. Additional researching of the Picton family
may revolve around references to the Picton Family in the records of the Bronwydd Estate
mostly in the 18th and 19th century within the Lordship of Cemais. The Bronwydd Estate
have provided their records called Bronwydd MSS to the National Library of Wales and are
available. This is why on this website, there are many references to the owners and
ancestors of the Bronwydd Estate and the contracts and leases they had with the Picton
Family. The following are examples of the ancestors or members of the Bronwydd Estate
family such as George Owen of Henllys born about 1552, son Alban Owen, then several
generations down to Anne Owen who married Thomas Lloyd of Penpedwast in the parish of
Meline, then down to Sir Marteine Lloyd (1851-1933). It is hoped that by looking at this
to find Picton records, contracts and leases; a better understanding can be arrived at such
as why the Picton Family lived in varies places, things they did and where additional
records may be found.
