The Duke of York is an hereditary title of the British monarchy, bestowed upon the second son of a reigning King or Queen. There have been 8 Dukes of York since 1385, and 3 more who held the title of Duke of York and Albany. ------------ Fifth Creation, 1644-1685 (became King James II, 1685-1688) James Stuart was born in 1633, the second son of Charles I and younger brother of Charles II. He succeeded his brother in 1685, but was removed by the Glorious Revolution in 1688 and replaced by William of Orange as William III. He failed in an attempt to recapture the throne and retired to exile in France. *The American colony at New York was named for him in 1667 after it was seized from the Dutch in 1664, as their colony of New Amsterdam. ------------- Seventh Creation, 1920-1936 (became King George VI, 1936-1952) The most famous Duke of York in modern times was the HRH the Prince Albert George, second eldest son of then King George V of the United Kingdom. The Prince was born in 1895 and was not expected to become king. However, in 1936, when his brother became Edward VIII on the death of their father, Edward chose to abdicate the throne in order to marry a divorced American commoner, Wallis Simpson. Prince Albert George became King George VI on December 11, 1936. His wife was HRH the duchess of York, who before her marriage was the Lady Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon, youngest daughter of the 14th earl of Strathmore and Kinghorne. The King died on February 6, 1952 and his wife on March 30, 2002 at the age of 102. *As King George VI and Queen Elizabeth, they were the parents of Queen Elizabeth II, and are the grandparents of the present Duke of York, HRH Prince Andrew.
Try the Purdue Libraries at the Hicks Undergraduate Library stacks for reports from 1938-1961. They were originally headquartered out of Kansas City, Missouri, though the family came from Louisiana. Good luck. http://gemini.lib.purdue.edu/arsweball/company.cfm?ID=1685 I am a great granddaughter of the Pickering family, no the family was NOT from Louisiana. They purchased land in LA for the lumber and did have a huge operation in that state among others. Our family comes from MO in fact William Russell Pickering, the founder, was born in St. Louis county, MO. At ten years of age he moved with his family to Waynesville, MO. His father Alfred Pickering came to the US from England and eventually became a judge in Crocker MO. during the War Between The States. The family home, an Italianate mansion is in the historical district of Janssen Place in Kansas City MO it has been restored to it's former glory. 73,000 acres of the Sabine National Forest in TX is comprised of Pickering land. 6.06.09 I am the great grandson of the Pickering family (Geoff Pickering), son of Lee Irving Pickering, son of Russell Cravens Pickering, son of William Russell Pickering, son of Alfred. Almost everything the above person said is true with the exception of the restoration of the Janssen house. It is getting close to complete; however, the restoration has been put on hold as the two men that own the house have run out of funds to finish the job. My father Lee Pickering recently passed away on 4.27.09 however he kept a great deal of records on the history of our family (specifically news articles and photos and old Pickering lumber money). If you are interested in talking you may respond to this note and I will be alerted.
