Charles Pickering was born in 1814 in New South Wales, Australia to Charles Pickering and Catherine Burn/Byrne (public records list both spellings). He arrived in Fiji in the late 1830s. Charles had children from a few women (Fijian, Tongan, Fijian/Tongan and Fijian/European).
Note: I’ve changed Charles Pickering (1814-1867) timeline into 1814-1831 (Australia) and 1830s-1867 (Fiji). I’ve only updated the years from 1814-1831 and will be working on his years in Fiji. Regards, Dulcie (11 February, 2013).
