Walaikum Salaam.  As far as I know, he knew parts of the Quran by memory, probably not the entire Quran.  And only Allah knows best. 

According to Pickthall's own words while explaining V.54:17

"And in truth We have made the Qur'an easy to remember; but is there any that remembers?"  (54:17)

Quoting Pickthall: 

"It is a fact that the Quran is marvelously easy for believers to commit to memory.  Thousands of people in the East know the whole Book by heart.  The translator (referring to himself), who finds great difficulty in remembering well-known English quotations accurately, can remember page after page of the Quran in Arabic with perfect accuracy." 

Therefore, obviously, he did know large portions of the Noble Quran by heart.  Subhan'Allah.
