Picton Castle

near Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire - Philipps family


"Picton Castle was a fortified residence before the time of William Rufus. William de Picton, a Norman Knight, having dispossessed and perhaps slain the original owner of the fortress, established his own family in the succession.

After the lapse of several generations, the line ended with Sir William Picton, whose daughter and heiress married Sir John Wogan and brought him Picton Castle as her dowry. Their descendant, Sir John Wogan, married Anne, daughter of James Butler, Earl of Ormonde, and their daughter, Katharine Butler, married Owen Donn, and inherited the castle as her marriage portion.

The estate was then passed down the female line to Sir John Philips, who was created a Baronet in 1621. Some time later, Sir Richard Philipps, seventh Baronet, was created Baron Milford of Ireland in 1776. At his death, issueless, in 1823, the Peerage became extinct."
