I have only recently found this site and was interested to see if there were any Pickens who had emigrated to CANADA/USA/AUSTRALIA/NEW ZEALAND. I have been looking into my family tree which is CURRIE and found that my GGGGGGrandfather Robert Currie b 1735 had married a Janet Picken b 1736. They came from STEWARTON in AYRSHIRE. Janets father had been an Andrew Picken born around 1715. He is also seen as coming from STEWARTON. I delved a little further to see where the Picken name came from and came across a "PICON" from FRANCE. The next entry for this person is that his sons were now PICKEN and living in EDINBURGH this was in the late 1600's. It is not recorded when they moved to AYRSHIRE.
