DNA Project

The DNA project is open to ALL PIDCOCKS around the world. It seeks to answer a number of Pidcock mysteries. Y-chromosome DNA research establishes that many modern Pidcocks and Pitcocks descend from ancestors who lived in Bakewell and Matlock, in central Derbyshire between Manchester and Sheffield near the center of England since the 16th century. Surprisingly, descendants of John Pidcock, the trader who built this original cabin, through 4 of his 5 sons, while clearly are related to each other, are not among them. Details and results can be found on our DNA Study page.

Pidcock Association organizes search for family graves in Bucks, Hunterdon

Campaign to locate and inventory of local cemeteries where family members were buried before 1900.“We want to compile a comprehensive list of all the cemeteries where early Pidcocks were buried in Bucks and Hunterdon counties,” said Lawrence Smith, association president. “We’re asking family members as well as local history and genealogy buffs to contribute information.”

Members of the Pidcock family have lived in the Delaware River Valley since the late 1600s, according to John L. Moore, the association’s historian. “We know where many early Pidcocks are buried on the Pennsylvania side of the Delaware in Bucks County, and in Hunterdon County on the New Jersey side, but we suspect we don’t know the locations of the final resting places of many family members,” Moore said.
