Nephew to Edward (Ned) Pickering (q.v.), and eldest son of Ned's brother Sir Gilbert Pickering, of the family of Northamptonshire landowners related to Mountagu.
Until the Restoration, John worked in the Exchequer; he died in 1703. Little seems known about him save that, like his uncle, he could sometimes cause Pepys embarrassment (see 26 April 1660).
