This book contains all that it has been possible to 
learn about the Park, Parke and Parks families of 
Connecticut. In the main, the facts given are cor- 
rect; but mistakes must necessarily occur where 
information is derived from so many sources. Conse- 
quently the compiler can not guarantee the accuracy 
of any of the statements made in this volume. In 
many cases the same event has been found recorded 
as having occurred on different dates. For instance; 
the birth of one man who is still living, is found re- 
corded in a church record as 1825, on a town record 
as 1827, while he himself says he was born in 1826. 
. Some confusion of dates, may occur in the minds of 
those not familiar with the subject; from the fact 
that previous to 1752, the legal and ecclesiastical 
year began on March 25, although it was not uncom- 
mon in writing to reckon it from Jan. 1. Conse- 
quently many events occurring between Jan. 1, and 
March 25, are recorded by giving both years. For 
instance; a child born (as we reckon now,) on Feb. 
12, 1743, might be recorded as having been born on 
"Feb, 12, 1742-3." 

In tracing one's ancestors, the system of numbers 
used has been found by the N. K. Hist. Gen. Society 
to be the most simple. For instance; Scott Parks is 
found on page 181, as number 1050. By turning back 
until his number is found, on page 125, his father 
Lewis, No. 530, will be seen. Going back to No. 
530, his father will be found, and so on, either turn- 
ing backward or formard, ones ancestors or descen- 
dants may be traced.

©tber iparkc (Benealootee* 

As far as known this book is the first successful 
attempt to publish a list of the Parke and Parks 
families of Connecticut. It is said that Paul Park 
wrote a genealogy of Robert Parke's descendants in 
1763. Hezekiah Ripley Parke is supposed to have 
compiled and written out his branch of the family 
about 1847. Hudson Hovey Parke attempted a gen- 
ealogy of Robert Parke's family about 1887, but did 
not live to publish it. Mr. Edwin H. Park published 
a very good genealogy of his branch of the Robert 
Parke family in 1902. 

The " History of Windham County, N. H.," con- 
tains a very complete account of the descendants of 
Alexander Park, who is supposed to have come from 
Ireland in 1728, and landed in Boston; finally settling 
in Windham. Bond's "History of Watertown," 
Mass., contains several generations of the descen- 
dants of Richard Parke, of Cambridge, Mass., who 
came from London, in the ship "Defence," in 1636. 
In 1888, Mr. Levi Wesson Park, of Chicago, published 
a small book: " Family Record of Levi Park, of 
Bernardston, Mass." Levi was a descendant of 
Richard. Rev. C. C. Park published a record of the 
Peter Park family in 1876; and W. J. Park, of Cov- 
ington, Ky., published in 1880, "The Park Family 
of Washington Co., Pa." 

Dr. C. R. Parke, of Bloomington, Ills., compiled 
in Ms. a list of the descendants of Arthur Parke, of 
Pennsylvania, who came from Ireland before 1744. 

The "History of Rye, N. Y.," contains a record of 
some descendants of Roger Park, who is supposed to 
have come from France before 1699.

Iprerace* 

This book is the result of a casual visit to the 
Boston Public Library, in September 1899. 
The compiler, then residing in Boston, noticed upon 
a shelf in that librar}' a History of his native town, 
Palmer, Mass., and on looking over its pages, came 
across his own name, together M^ith that of his 
father, grandfather and great-grandfather Up to 
that time he had not known his great-grandfather's 
name and had never had any curiosity to know it. 
All knowledge of his ancestors, be)^ond his grandfa- 
ther, was embraced in the statement, often made b}'- 
his father, that: "All the Parks's in this Country 
were descended from two brothers who settled in 
Connecticut in sixteen hundred and something." 
Upon learning that he had had a great-grandfather 
and his name, Reuben Parks, the idea occurred that 
HE must have had a father, and curiosity became 
excited to learn who he was. 

From that point he started in systematically to 
discover the name of his great-great-grandfather, and 
for three months spent all his evenings poring over 
genealogies and local town histories, in the Boston 
Public Library, looking for all items about the 
family name and taking notes of them. 

Having obtained considerable information through 
this source, it was decided to send out circulars to 
other members of the family, and, if results would 
warrant it, to publish in book form all the facts that 
were secured. At that time, however, it was not 
realized what a stupendous undertaking it would be.

10 PARKE FAMILIES 

The library of the New England Historic Genea- 
logical Society, of Boston; the libraries of Worcester, 
Mass.; Norwich, New Tvondon, New Haven and 
Hartford, Conn.; the Lenox Library, of New York 
City; the Library of Congress and other libraries in 
Washington, D. C, that are rich in genealogical 
data, were searched. Several trips were made from 
Washington to the New England states to consult 
various records. The vital, probate, land and church 
records of many Connecticut and Massachusetts towns 
were closely scanned for facts relating to the family. 
Old graveyards, many of them almost forgotten and 
inaccessible, were visited and many names and dates 
unearthed, that will become obliterated in a few 
years through the relentless march of time and the 
ravages of decay. Over three thousand letters and 
circulars were sent out to members of the family in 
all parts of the Country, and much valuable informa- 
tion was received through this source. Many facts 
were found in old family bibles and other old family 
records, and through personal interviews with living 
members of the family. 

It is impossible to mention more than a few of the 
many who sent valuable data, together with words of 
encouragement and wishes for success. Mr. Francis 
R. Parks, of Westfield, Mass., secured the services of 
Mr. L. M. Dewey, (compiler of the Dewe}^ Genealo- 
gy,) who obtained much of the earlier history of the 
family in Connecticut. Mr. Edwin H. Park, of Den- 
ver, Colo., who compiled a genealogy of his branch 
of the descendants of Robert Parke, placed all the 
data that he had collected at the service of this vol- 
ume. Mr. Joseph H. Parks, of Amsterdam, N. Y., 
Mrs. A. P. Gilbert, of Logan, Okla., Mrs. Myrta 



OF CONNECTICUT. n 

Bossart, of Burton, Ohio, Mrs. A. C. Oilman, of 
Palisades, N. Y., and many others, spent much time 
in collecting and forwarding facts about the families 
for use in the Genealogy. All are entitled to the 
thanks of the writer and the readers for their efforts 
to make this record more complete. 

In his journeyings in the quest for information the 
compiler has personally met many of the family who 
have helped to make this book a success, and a better 
set of people do not exist. They are, for the most 
part, people of the middle class, neither very rich nor 
extremely poor; God fearing, industrious; in fact, the 
kind of people who have helped to make this great 
Country what it is. 

We have been well represented in all the wars, in- 
cluding the Colonial wars; and there is no branch of 
the arts, sciences or industries in which members of 
our great family can not be found taking an honora- 
ble part. 

This book has many faults and is very incomplete 
in various ways, and no one is more conscious of its 
deficiencies than is the compiler. Had it befen possi- 
ble to induce more people to answer letters, much 
that is now lacking could have been included. < Such 
as it is, it represents the best that could be done with 
the facilities at command. Over six years of his 
leisure hours and considerable time and money spent 
for tra\ el, is the Compiler's contribution to the fam- 
ily of which he is proud to be a member.

12 PARKE FAMILIES 

©rtgtn ot tbe Bame. 

It is not a very difficult matter to trace the origin 
of our family name. Although we are not so plenti- 
ful as the Smiths, Browns, Jones, etc., there are 
enough of us to conclusively prove that we did not all 
come from the same ancestor, unless we go back to 
Adam. He, however, lived in a kind of park, and 
had he taken a surname in the same manner that our 
more recent ancestors did, would possibly have been 
called "Mr. Parke." 

An ancient writer on the subject of surnames, 

Ralph Brooke, York, Herald, in 1594, wrote: 

" If a man had three sonns, the one dwelling at the Townsend, 
the other at ye Woods, and the thyrde at the Parke, they all took 
theyr surnames of theire dwellings and left their annciente sur- 
names; which errour hath overthrowen and brought into oblyvion 
manye annciente houses in this realme of England." 

The book, " Patronymica Britannica," an authority 
on English surnames; published at London, 1860; 
has the following in regard to the sources from 
which the Park families derive their names: 

PARK. From residence near a park. Anciently, AT-PARK and 
A-PARK. See however, Peter. 

PARKE. I. May be a derivative of Peter, and intermediate be- 
tween that and Perkins; or, 2, local; either from one of the 
places called Pare in Normandy, situated respectively near 
Dieppe and Bernay, or from residence near some English 
park, like the De la Parocke of the H. R. 

PARKES. May belong to the series. Park, Parkins, Parkinson, 
&c., from Peter, the Christian name; or may be local, from 
Pares, near Pont-1'Eveque, or Pares, near Alencon, both in 
Normandy. 

PETER. The Christian name, introduced here [England] at the 
Conquest. It has become the parent of many surnames, as 
Peter, Peterson, Piers, Pierce, Pearse, Pearce, Pears, Peers, 
Pierson, Pearson, Peterken, Perkin, Perkins, Purkess and 
Purkis, Perk, Pyrke, Perks, Perkes, PARK, PARKS, 
PARKES, Parkin, Parkyn, Parkins, Parkinson, and perhaps 
Porson and Parsons.

Coat of arms. 



One of the first questions asked by the average 
seeker for genealogical information in regard to his 
family is: " Have we a Coat of Arms?" This subject 
properly comes under the head of Heraldry; but the 
two subjects, heraldry and genealogy, are so closel}" 
interwoven in the older countries, especially those of 
what were known as the better class, that it is al- 
most impossible to trace the genealogy of a family 
without having something to say about its armorial 
bearings. 

There have been a number of Parke coats-of-arms 
granted in England at various times; some of which 
have been claimed and used by families on this side 
of the water. All that have been discovered are 
described here in heraldic terms. The colors used in 
these descriptions are: Gules, red; Azure, blue; Ar- 
gent, white or silver; Or, golden; and these are also 
abbreviated. 

1. Parke of Lower Henbury, co. 
Dorset. Azure, on a fess engrailed 
argent, between three hinds trip- 
pant or, as many torteaux, each 
charged with a pheon of the third.

of the second. Crest: A dexter hand holding up a

9. Mr. Edwin H. Park, of Denver, Colo., in his 
Park Genealogy, published 1902, gave the following 
as the coat of arms of Robert Parke: "Argent on a 
pale azure 3 stag's heads caboched of the field. 
Crest: A talbot's head couped gu. eared and gorged 
with a collar gemmel or, and pierced in the breast 
with a pheon of the last. Motto; " Justitiae tenax." 

10. A descendant of Richard^ Parke, (Cambridge, 
Mass., 1636), who resides in Concord, Mass., has a 
copy of the Parke arms as described by Edwin Park, 
with the motto: " Providentice me committo," which 
has been in the possession of her family for over a 
hundred years. 

11. The most reliable authority for the use of arms 
by the descendants of Robert Parke, is contained in a 
letter written by Mr. Hudson Hovey Parke, of Buffa- 
lo, N. Y., in 1887. Following are some extracts 
from the letter: 

BUFFALO, Feby. 20, 1887. 
Mr. Charles S. Parke, 

Dear Sir, 

Your letter of Feb. 17, reed. I am 
glad to get your line of descent, and I shall be very much pleased 
to receive the balance of your memorandum. 

I will give you copies of the entries made by Paul Parke, of 
Preston, showing when and how the name was first abbreviated 
by him in his record. The entries are in Pv.evd. Paul's own hand 
as follows: " (January ye 16th AD 1757) (Benajah Parke a Ero. of 
this Church) (Gave up to God his Child which he) (desired bap- 
tized namely) (Jonah Parke.)" Succeeding this entry comes the 
following: "(October ye 9th AD 1757) (This Ch. being together: 
Paul Park) (with his wife Gave up to God there) (young Child 
which was baptized) (namely: Molle Brewer.)" 

After this entry the name is used by him generally without the 
final E. The Revd. ancestor did not make very good use of his 
capital letters, or spell very well, and I first thought, as I sat in 
his chair, which is in the old house on the home farm, and read 
his dingy manuscripts, that the dropping of the "e" was an 



16

accident, but when I found he had left it off all sorts of other 
names, I concluded that the fiction was prompted by the same 
spirit that dumped the tea into Boston Harbor. 

Now as to the^oat of arms; I get that from I^ord Wensleydale, 
the last of the Baronets of the Parke family. Wensleydale was 
the son of Thomas Parke, of Highfield, near Liverpool, by Ann 
Preston his wife. He was born March 22, 1782, married April 8, 
181 7, died Feby, 25, 1868. He left no sons living. This Bart was 
of our family. His original letter from which I take the arms 
was written by him to Mr. Hezekiah R. Parke, and is now in the 
possession of liis son, William A. Parke. This letter, of which I 
have a copy, concludes: " My arms above aluded to are 3 stag's 
heads caboched gules, or, a field argent, with a stag hound's head 
for a crest. I mention that supposing you may take an interest in 
that subject." 

I also have a cut of his full arms with the supporters, which are 
only used by the Peerage; so I do not use them. 




The perpendicular shade lines indicate red. The motto in 
English means: " Maintaining justice." I also have a photograph 
of a very ancient painting of these arms from Mr. Benj, Parke, of 
Parkvale. Yours trul}', 

HUDSON H. PARKE. 
16 West Swan St., Buffalo, N. Y. 

Nothing more than is given here has been learned 
as to the right of the American families to bear and 
use arms. However, there is no law in the United 
States upon the subject; anyone can use any coat of 
arms that he may desire. That illustrated in colors 
is the one to which the greatest number here is 
apparently entitled to.

Some lenglieb iparF^e ffamtliee. 

A genealogy of the descendants of Robert Parke 
would be incomplete without some attempt to trace 
his ancestry in England. Considerable has been 
written upon the subject and many conjectures have 
been made as to what part of England he came from, 
but no authentic information has been discovered. 
The consensus of opinion seems to have been that he 
came from "Preston," and probably he did, but as 
there are several places and parishes called Preston, 
in England, the question is: From which Preston did 
he come? 

The Rev. Paul Park, of Preston, Conn., who, it 
has been stated compiled a Parke Genealogy about 
1763, said that Robert came from Preston, Lanca- 
shire. As the Rev. Paul was one hundred and forty 
yearo nearer to the time of which he wrote than we 
are, and as he probably had some of the original 
papers that were brought over by Robert, (since de- 
stroyed by fire), his statement is entitled to serious 
consideration. He wrote that: "Robert Parke^ Gen- 
tleman, was born about 1580, at Preston, Lancashire, 
England. He married Martha Chaplin, of Edmunds- 
bury, England. They came to Roxbury, June 17, 
1630, to Weathersfield in 1640, and to Mystic, Conn., 
in 1649. He died Feb. 11, (?) 1664, aged eighty- 
four. His grave is in Whitehall Cemetery, Mystic, 
Conn. Sir Robert and family sailed from Cowes, 
Isle of Wight, March 29, 1630. Landed at Boston, 
Mass., June 17, 1630. Came in a fleet with 1500 or 
1900. His son William remained at the homestead

in Roxbury. Thomas came to Preston, Conn., after 
1649. Robert Parke, Gentleman, was secretary to 
Gov. Winthrop during the passage on board the 
'Arabella.' Other passengers were Sir Robert Sal- 
tonstall, and Lady Arabella Johnson, daughter of the 
Earl of Lincoln. Thomas Park's children were 
Thomas, Nathaniel, Robert, William, Martha, Doro- 
th}^ and Alice, all born in Preston (?), also John. 
Thomas Parke, born in England about 1620; married 
his cousin, Dorothy Thompson, who came with her 
aunt Parke from England in 1630, and came with Sir 
Robert's family to Roxbury, thence to Weathersfield 
and to Preston, and later to Mystic." 

It is claimed that the above was written by the 
Rev. Paul Park, under date of Jan. 5, 1763. 

All that can be learned from the published records 
of Lancashire is from "The Register of the Parish 
Church, of Preston, England," which begins 1602, 
any previous volume or volumes having disappeared. 
This book was published in London, 1892: 

Page 40. "Roger Chorley was instituted to the 
Vicarage of Preston, 17 Oct. 1563, on the presentation 
of Thomas Parkes." (Piccope MSS, XVIII, 173).

Page 166. December 1623, christening. "Bap.

Page 173. August 1625, christening. "Johes Al-

Page 221. August 1631, burial. "A sonne of 
Robt. Parke sept. 30 die." 

If our Robert came from Lancashire, the above 
records possibly refer to some of his relatives. 

One writer gave the birthplace of Robert Parke as 
Gestingthorpe, Essex; and the late Stephen Cleve- 
land, of Preston, Conn., left amang his papers a 
statement to that effect, but did not give his author- 
ity. This statement probably originated from the 
fact that there was a Parke family in Gestingthorpe. 
The following is found in the "History of the County 
of Essex; compiled by Philip Morant; London, 
MDCCLXVIII," Vol. II; p. 309. In the parish of 
Gestingthorpe: 

"PARKS is another estate in this parish which 
derived its name from a family existing here from 
the time of K. Edward III, to that of King Charles I. 

" In 1381, Julian att Parke, and Walter deGelde- 
ford, held here, of William de Ufford Earl of Suffolk, 
the fourth part of a knight's fee called Morhall which 
is supposed to be this estate. — Robert Parke dyed in 
1400. Margaret his wife having outlived him 57 
years, dyed 21 August 1457 and both lye buried in 
this Church with an epitaph. — John his son was re- 
turned for a Gentleman of Essex in 1433.— William 
seems to have been his son, whose son, — John dyed 
in 1574, leaving by Alice his wife daughter of Richard 
Strutt of Maplestead,— John, living in 1634. He was 
so considerable a person, that he was summoned ac- 
cording to ancient custom, to receive the honor of 
Knighthood, and on his refusal paid a composition 
fine, for which he had a tally from the exchequer.

whom the name ' Parks ' was given to a capital 
messuage in the parish of Stebbing." 

The late Stephen Cleveland, of Norwich, Conn., 
left among his prpers, the statement that: "Robert, 
(the third son of William,) came to America. He 
married Martha, daughter of Capt. Robert Chaplyn, 
whose wife was Elizabeth, daughter of Francis 
Anstey, oj Bury. Sir Francis Chaplyn, Knight and 
Mayor of London, in the time of Charles I, was her 
brother." 

"Robert, (the third son of William,)" may have 
come to America, as Mr. Cleveland wrote, but he 
could not have been our Robert, as he was only about 
ten years old in 1630. However, he seems to have 
had him confused with our Robert when he said that 
he married Martha Chaplyn. There appears to be 
but little doubt that it was our Robert who married 
Martha Chaplyn.

The "History of New London County." published 
at Philadelphia, 1882, has the following: 

" Robert Parke, with his wife and three sons came from Eng- 
land in 1630 and settled at Boston, Mass. He was the first of the 
name that emigrated to this Country. The genealogy of the Park 
family has been traced many generations in England to the Earf 
of Wensleydale, etc." 

Robert Rarke may have been descended from the 
same Parke family as was the Earl of Wensleydale, 
but he could not have been descended from an Earl of 
that name, for the reason that the title "Earl of 
Wensleydale," was created man)^ years after he came. 

One correspondent in England could not connect 
Robert Parke in any way with Lancashire, but said: 
"Parke was a Lincolnshire name. There is a parish 
of Preston in Suffolk county, not far from St. Ed- 
mundsburj", where Robert Parke is supposed to have 
married his wife Martha Chaplin. Chaplin was a 
well known family name in Suffolk county in those 
days." 

The following was copied from the "New York 
Mail and Express," of Jan. 30, 1904, and is given for 
the benefit of the reader: 

" Further light on this question, as well as on the maiden name 
and family of Robert Parke's first wife Martha, the mother of all 
his children, is given in Waters' 'Gleanings,' pp. 32, loio-ii. 
Mr. Waters says that Clement Chaplin's sister Martha is said to 
have been married to Robert Parker, of Wollpitt, who went into 
New England," and that Thomas Chaplin and Capt. Robert 
Chaplin, both of Bury St. Edmunds, Richard Chaplin and Edmund 
Chaplin, both of Se'mer, and William Chaplin, of Bloxenhall, 
were brothers of said Clement and Martha, and that their father 
was William Chaplin, of Semer. 

Wollpitt, Semer, Preston, and Groton are all within a few miles 
of Bury St. Edmunds, all in the county cf Suffolk, England, in 
the same general region as Lincolnshire, whereas Lancashire is in 
quite a different part of England. The Preston in Lancashire is a 
large and prominent town, while the Preston in Suffolk county is 
small and obscure, which circumstances may account for the mis- 
take, if it was a mistake, of Rev. Paul Parke in saying that Robert 
Parke came from Preston, Lancashire, England. There was, 
however, a Parke family in Preston, Lancashire, in the sixteenth 



22 PARKE FAMILIES 

and seventeenth centuries. A careful investigation of the parish 
registers and similar records in Preston and neighboring localities 
in Suffolk county, England, would probably settle the question of 
Robert Parke's birthplace and residence in England, and throw 
light on his relationship to the pioneers, Richard Parke of Cam- 
bridge, Mass.; Joseph Parke, of »Salisbury, Mass., and the Park 
pioneers of Virginia. 

It seems practically certain that the Robert Parker mentioned 
by ]Mr, Waters was intended to refer to our pioneer B.obert Parke, 
and that Clement Chaplin and Robert Parke were brothers-in-law. 
Mr. Waters (" Gleanings," p. 32) gives an abstract of the will of 
Clement Chaplin, of Thetford, Eng., a few miles north of Bury 
St. Edmunds, dated August 16, 1656, and proved September 23, 
1656, by which he devises to his wife Sarah, "all my houses and 
lands in Hartford and Weathersfield, in New England." Clement 
Chaplin is mentioned in an order of "A Corte held att Newe 
Towne (Hartford, Ct. ), 10 November, 1636;" he was one of the 
" Comittees " of the General Court at Hartford; was appointed 
Treasurer in 1637, and was one of the " Deputyes " of the Gen- 
eral Court at Hartford in 1643. (Col. Rec, Conn., pp. 6, 9, 12, 
39, 82, 90). 

If this Clement Chaplin was a brother-in-law of our Robert 
Parke, it is natural to suppose that he was influential in inducing 
Robert Parke to remove from Roxbury, Mass., to Weathersfield, 
Conn. Robert Parke's name appears on the Conn. Col. Records 
as follows: Among the persons "made free" at the "Court of 
Election," at Hartford, April 9, 1640, is " Mr. Parke at Weathers- 
field;" on a jury at Hartford, July 2, 1640, is "Robert Parke," 
on a jury Sept. 2, 1641, is "Robert Parks," one of the "Depu- 
tyes" at each of the General Courts at Hartford, August 26, aud 
September 8, 1642, is " Mr. Parke;" on a jury June i, 1643, and 
on a grand jury September 15, 1643, (at a court where " Mr. 
Chaplin" was a Deputy), was "Mr. Parke." (Col. Rec. Conn., 
pp. 46, 55, 66, 75, 84, 87, 93.) 

The common neighborhood of Clement Chaplin and Robert 
Parke during these four years 1640-3, both inclusive, corroborates 
the more direct evidence that they were brothers-in-law, and con- 
firms the statement in the Parke Genealogy, compiled by Rev. Paul 
Parke, that Martha, the wife of Robert Parke, was the daughter of 
William Chaplin, of Edmundsbury, England. Later genealogists, 
who state that she was the daughter of Capt. Robert Chapin, of St. 
Ednmndsbury, England, have probably been misled into supposing 
her brother, Capt. Robert Chaplin, of Bury St. Edmunds, to have 
been her father. C. A. C. 

It has been claimed that the first ancestor of Robert 
Parke came over to England with William the Con- 
queror, and after the Conquest was rewarded by the 
King with grants of land in the north of England. 



OF CONNECTICUT. 23 

He was made Master of the Hunt and placed in charge 
of the Royal Parks, and granted the title of 
" Baronet," (?) and was known as Thomas de Parke. 
"Among his other descendants were Major William 
Parke and Col. Richard Parke, both Companions of 
the Order of the Bath. Daniel Parke, from whom is 
descended the Parke-Custis family of Virginia, was a 
near relative of Robert Parke." 

The "History of Lincolnshire," published at Lon- 
don, 1828, has the following to say about Easterkeale 
or East Keal, the place in Lincolnshire from where 
Robert Parke indited his letter to John Winthrop, 
just before coming to this Country: 

"East Keal, (Soke of Bolingbroke, Lincolnshire 
CO., Eng.) is situate on the turnpike road between 
Spelsby and Boston, at the distance of about a mile 
and a half south-westward from the former place. 
The church, which is a tolerable structure, contains 
in the north wall a bust, without any inscription; and 
iu the south wall, a whole length female figure, hold- 
ing an inverted torch, with an inscription wherein 
the name of Susanna Kirkman is to be decyphered. 
The parish is parcel of the duchy of Lancaster, and 
in 1821, contained 58 houses, and 313 inhabitants." 

It is to be regretted that the means at the disposal 
of the Compiler would not permit of a systematic 
search being made among the old records in England 
to definitely settle the vexed question of the place of 
Robert Parke's birth. 



From "History of Wednesbury in the county of 
Stafford," England. London, 1854: 

" Thomas Parkes, Gentleman, gave by will, dated 
Jan. 11, 1602, to the poor people of Wednesbury ten 



24 PARKE FAMILIES 

pounds, to be paid yearly by twenty shillings a year 
to the Vicar of Wednesbury and the church-wardens 
to the use of the poor, to be given every Good Friday, 
for ten years." Also the said Thomas Parkes gave a 
school house, a certain tenement in Wednesbury, and 
a close called " Clay Pit Leasowe," to maintain a 
schoolmaster to teach ten poor children of the parish, 
for the term of four score years after his decease. He 
also gave a cottage, situate in Wendnesbury, to be set 
apart as an almshouse for two persons, for ever. 

"Richard Parkes, Esquire, son of the above Thom- 
as, did by will confirm the above and gave forty shil- 
lings more to the school, A. D. 1617." 

Richard and wife Dorothy had son Thomas, whose 
daughter Anne married William Ward, who was the 
progenitor of the present Lord Dudley; the Parkes 
name apparently becoming extinct. Sedgley Manor, 
which the first Thomas Parkes had purchased from 
the impecunious Lord Dudle}'^ of 1600, was thus car- 
ried back to a later bearer of that title. 



From the ''History of Northampton," England;

/ 1. ROBERT' PARKE, (or Sir Robert Parke, as he 
has been sometimes called), was born in Preston, Eng- 
land, in 1^80. He was a personal friend of John 
Winthrop, to whom he addressed a letter relative to 
his proposed journey to New England, in February, 
1629-30. Following is a copy, preserving all the 
quaint old orthography: 

ROBERT PARKE TO JOHN WINTHROP, 1629-30. 

"To the Right Worshipfull Maigr. John Winthrop Esquier in 
Gratton in Suffolke give this with speede I pray you. 

"To the Right Worshfull, Sir: — I vnderstand by some of my 
frendes that you are suddenly to goe into New England. If it be

" From Easterkeale in Lincolnshire, this xxvijth day of Febru- 
ary, 1629." (1629-30.) 

From the above, it will be seen that he was a man 
of some means. He did not come to the new world 
through dire necessity or to better his condition, but 
rather through a desire to have more religious liberty. 
Ho vv-as of that large number of emigrants mentioned 
in Green's "History of the English People:" 

"They were in great part of the professional and middle classes; 
some of 'them men of large landed estates; some zealous clergymen 



26 PARKE FAMILIES 

like Cotton, Hooker and Roger Williams; some shrewd London 
lawyers or young scholars from Oxford. The bulk were God-fear- 
ing farmers from lyincolnshire and the eastern counties. They de- 
sired in fact ' only the best ' as sharers in their enterprise, men 
driven forth from their fatherland not by earthly want or by the 
greed for gold, or by the lust of adventure, but by the fear of God 
and the zeal for a Godly worship." 

He and his family sailed from Cowes, Isle of Wight, 
for America, on board the "Arabella," with seventy- 
six passengers, March 29, 1630, and landed in Boston, 
Mass., June 17, 1630; making the voyage in seventy- 
eight days. He lived for a time at Roxbury, Mass. 

" Robert Parke, of Wethersfield, came in 1630; went back same 
year carrying an order by our Governer to his son John, in England 
to pay money, probably the first bill of exchange drawn in America. ' ' 
— Savage's Genealogical Dictionary. 

In 1639 he went, with his son Thomas, through the 
wilderness to Wethersfield, Conn., with the first 
settlers there. 

He resided at Wethersfield about ten years, and in 
1649 removed to Pequot, (now New London,) Conn. 
He was a resident of the town plot of New London 
for about six years, and then removed to lands which 
he owned on the Mystic river. 

In the first book of the town records of New London, 
the two Winthrops, John and Deane, are uniformly 
entitled "Mr." as are also Jonathan Brewster and 
Robert Parke, when they appear in the records of the 
plantation; but all others are styled "Goodman," or 
mentioned by Christian and surname, without any 
prefix. 

When Mr. Blinman, (the first minister of the Gos- 
pel who preached regularl}'^ in New London), came in 
1650, there was no meeting house. During the first 
years of his ministry he preached in the barn meeting 
house which stood on the corner of Hempstead and 
Granite streets. It belonged to Mr. Robert Parke. 



OF CONNECTICUT. 27 

August 29, 1651, the following vote of the town is 
recorded: "For Mr. • Parke's barne the Towne doe 
agree for the use of it until midsummer next to give 
him a day's work a peace for a meeting house, to be 
b}^ the Saboth come amoneth." In 1652 Mr. Parke 
sold his house lof to Mr. William Rogers, of Boston. 

He was elected a Freeman of the colony in April, 
1640, a Representative or Deputy to the General 
Court, September, 1641, and again in August, 1642. 
He was a Selectman in 1651, and again a Representa- 
tive in 1652. In 1658 he was a Selectman of Souther- 
town, (afterwards nam.ed Mystic and now known as 
Stonington,) Conn. 

Robert Pa.ke married 1st, Martha, a daughter of 
Capt. Robert and Elizabeth (Ansty) Chaplin, of Bury, 
England. Her father gave her portion of ;^300. It 
is probable that she died in England before the family 
came to this Country, as no mention has been found 
of her here. He married 2nd, at Wethersfield, about 
1644, Mrs. Alice Thompson. She was the widow of 
John Thompson, of Preston, England, and the mother 
of Doroth}^ Thompson, who became the wife of 
Thomas^ Parke. There is upon record a curious order 
of the General Court of Marrachusetts, dated May 30, 
1644, in favor of Robert Parke, to the effect: " That 
he may proceed in marriage with Alice Thompson 
without further publishment." 

He died at Mystic, February 4, 1664-5, aged 84 
years. The diary of Thomas Minor, under date of 
Feb 1664, has the following: "The 4th of ffebruarie 
mr perke departed this life and was buried the 7th day 
being Tuseday in the yeare 1664." His grave is in the 
White Hall graveyard, at White Hall, Mystic, Conn. 
His house was east of the present road and southeast 



28 PARKE FAMILIES 

of the buiial ground, and stood just south of a small 
knoll, somewhat rocky. 

His will is dated May 14, 1660, and was admitted to 
probate March 14, 1664-5. This will mentions onl}'- 
three children, William, the oldest; Samuel and 
Thomas. One authority has stated that his oldest 
son, named Robert, stayed in England and had the 
homestead; others have said that he may have had 
other children, possibly Joseph, Richard, Edward and 
Ann.

2. WILLI AM'' PARKE, (Robert^, was born in 
Preston, England, about 1606. He came to America 
in 1630 and settled in Roxbury, where he became one 
of the prominent men of the colony. "He came to 
New England in the 12th month, 1630, a single man 
and was one of the first in the church at Rocks- 
brough." — Rev. John Eliot's Recoid of Church Mem- 
bers. He was a member of the Ancient and Honorable 
Artilery Co., 1638: represented Roxbury, Mass., in the 
General Court from 1635 to 1667, the longest known 
teim of service under the old charter. He was one of 
the endowers of the Roxbury free school, the first in 
the United States and the oldest in continued existence 
in America. He was undoubtedly a man of influence 
and a power in the colony. The records of the Massa- 
chusetts Bay Colony show that he was always on 
hand, always on committees, always adjusting diffi- 
culties. He was executor of the will of Thomas 
Dudley, and of many others who died during the early 
days of the Colony. He married Martha, a daughter 
of John Holgrave, of Salem. 

He died May 11, 1685, and is buried in the Roxbury 
graveyard, the stone still being in good condition. 
He left no descendants of the Parke name, his will, 
dated July 20, 1684, mentioning three daughters but 
no sons.

there at least two of his children were born. About 
1650 he removed to the Pequot Plantation, (New 
London,) Conn., where he became a Deacon in the 
Church of which the Rev. Richard Blinman, (his 
brother-in-law, the}- having married sisters,) was 
pastor. He resided in Pequot for about six yeare and 
then moved to Southertown, (now Stonington.) where 
he became a Selectman. While residing in Souther- 
town he sent the following letter to his brother Wil- 
liam, in Roxbury, Mass. What is now Stonington, 
was at that time a part of Massachueetts.

(The above was copied from the "New England Historical and 
Genealogical Register," Vol. XXXI, p 176-7: 1877.) 

After residing in Mystic, within the bounds of 
Stonington for a number of years, he removed with 
his son Thomas^ Jr., to lands belonging to them in 
the northern part of New London, where in 1680 they 
were reckoned as inhabitants. In 1681 he was Col- 
lector of Taxes for New London. In October, 1686, 
he was one of the petitioners to the Legislature for 
the incorporation of the town of Preston. The peti- 
tion was also signed by three of his sons, Thomas Jr., 
Nathaniel and John. In 1698, he, together with his 
sons Robert and John and nine others, organized the 
First Church of Christ, of Preston, and he became its 
first Deacon. 

He died July 30, 1709, after a long and well spent 
life. He must have been about ninety years of age, 
although the exact date of his birth has not been dis- 
covered. His will, dated Sept. 5, 1707, and recorded 
in New London, provided for his wife, Dorothy; for 
children John, Nathaniel, William, Martha, Dorothy 
and Alice; for grandson Samuel, son of Thomas; and 
grandson James, son of Robert. 

He married Dorothy Thompson, daughter of John 
and Alice Thompson, of Preston, England.

of Robert' Parke's will that his son Samuel should 
settle upon some land that he willed to him, within a 
certain time. He was a farmer in Stonington between

99. ROBERT' PARKS, (James*, Robert', Thom- 
as^ Robert^), was born in Preston, Conn., about 1718, 
he being baptized August 18, of that year. Follow- 
ing in the footsteps of most of his ancestors, he 
became a tiller of the soil. In 1750 he was Surveyor, 
and in 1760, "Packer," of Preston. He resided in 
Preston until about 1770, when he moved to Massa- 
chusetts and settled on land in or near Westfield, 
which he had purchased from Abraham and Jacob 
Fowler. In the deed of this land, dated Nov. 15, 
1770, his name is spelled "PARK" twice and 
"PARKS" twice; and it appears that this branch of 
the family used the final "S" from this point on, 
although the name is also found in many of the 
earlier records in that form. He also bought land 
near Westfield, (and probably adjoining his other 
property,) from James Martin, Nov. 2, 1770; this 
deed being recorded in Springfield, Mass. He mar- 
ried Jan. 22, 1744-5, at Preston, Mary Killam, a 
daughter of Samuel and Elizabeth (Rose) Killam, 
who was born at Preston, July 22, 1728. The dates 
and places of the deaths of Robert and Elizabeth 
have not been ascertained, but they probably died at 
the homestead, near Westfield.

103. PAUL' PARKE, (Hezekiah*, Robert', Thom- 
as^ Roberto was born in Preston, Conn., Nov. 18, 
1720, and lived there all his life, dying there June 25, 
1802. He was a farmer, and supported himself and 
famil}^ b)^ that occupation, while preaching the Gos- 
pel in the First Separatist Church, of Preston, of 
which he was pastor for fifty-five years. 

It is to be regretted that the scope of this work will 
not permit of an extended review of the Separatist 
religious movement in Connecticut during the eigh- 
teenth century; a movement in which the Rev. Paul 
Park took such an active part and served so long and 
faithfully. In Trumbull's History of Connecticut 
many references are found regarding this movement 
and the part which he took in it, and from that work 
the following is quoted: 

" How much they held to a miraculous and immediate assistance 
of the Spirit, in their performances, may appear by a charge given 
to elder Paul Parks, of Preston, at his ordination. He was solemnly 
charged not to premeditate, or think before hand, what he should 
speak to the people; but to speak as the Spirit should give him 
utterance. The preachers of this denomination were laymen, and 
their ordinations were of the same sort." 

The Histor}^ of the First Congregational Church 
of Preston, Conn., (Preston, 1900), has the following 
about Paul Park's connection with the Separatists: 

" But what shall we say of Elder Paul Park, the inspiration of 
the Preston Separate church? No doubt a man of superior natural 
endowments was this farmer preacher. He broi;ght to his work 
neither education nor theological training. We can imagine that 



64 PARKE FAMILIES 

he possessed gifts of speech however, such that he could in large 
measure follow the injunction not to premeditate what he should 
utter in public. 

" For fifty years he held his flock abovit him, ministering to them 
as pastor, kept with his own hand the records of the church, main- 
tained regular Sunday ser\'ices, participated prominently in every 
council in which his church was represented, while at the same 
time supporting himself and family upon his farm, without ever 
receiving one dollar as salary or stated remuneration. He resided 
at what is still known as the Park homestead, in the southeastern 
part of the town of Preston. Ministers' rates were denounced by 
the Separatists. The only pecuniary assistance he received from 
his people, it is believed, was the aid his parishioners may have 
rendered him about his farming work, We can imagine for our- 
selves the sewing bees and the husking bees that may have been 
held annually upon the elder's plantation. 

"In 1797 Elder Park preached his half-century sermon, which is 
said to have taken several Sundays for its delivery. It is still pre- 
served, in his own handwriting. Large audiences gathered to hear 
him, few if any of whom had been participants in the early strug- 
gles of the church, and the story he told with emotion fell upon 
the ears of a new generation. 

" The visitor to the Avery Cemetery stops a moment to gaze at a 
stone which bears for its inscription the words of Paul the Apostle, 
' I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept 
the faith.' It marks the last resting place of Elder Paul Park." 

He married 1st, Sarah Smith, Dec. 5, 1738. She 
died Jan. 23, 1772, aged 51 years. He married 2nd, 
Mar}^ Russ, of Ipswich, Mass. She died Sept. 11,

H., where he published "The Nashua Gazette," for 
forty-three years; first as a weekly and then as a 
daily; that being the first weekly and second daily 
newspaper published in the cit}^ of Nashua. "The 
Palmer Journal," in its issue of Sept. 23, 1804, said: 

" Mr. Whittemore visited Palmer recently to look over again the 
scenes of his younger days and renew acquaintance with such of 
the men of former days as still remained — though the number is 
pitiably small. He brought with him the bound copy of the year's 
file of the paper and presented it to the library officers. 

"Mr. Whittemore was born at Peterboro, N. H., March 29, 1825, 
and is therefore nearly eighty years of age. He removed from 
Peterboro to Nashua, the first day of 1840, commenced the printing 
trade June 28, 1841; he has worked at it continuously since that 
time and is still actively engaged in the business in the same 
building in which he began his trade and in which he carried on 
newspaper work for many years, although he has now retired from 
that branch and conducts a job business only. He has been in the 
building he now occupies for sixty years."

was born at St. Louis, Mo., July 25, 1849. The fol-

JOHN HENRY PARKS. 



JOHN HENRY PARKS, of Duxbury, Mass., manufacturer, is 
a native of Missouri, but of old New England stock — on t'ne 
paternal side, of Connecticut, and on the maternal side, of Maine. 
He was born in St. Louis, Mo., July 25, 1849, son of John C. and 
Mary McClellan (Drew) Parks. His father was a native of Mead- 
ville, Pa., and his mother of Newfield, Me. His maternal grand- 
mother was Lucretia Kirby, of Great Barrington, IVIa.ss., and his 
paternal grandfather, James Parks, of Clinton, Mich., both of old 
Connecticut stock, originally of Middletown, Conn. The Drews

were early Maine settlers, the present generation being prominent 
and highly connected in that section. Mr. Parks was educated at 
Notre Dame University, vSouth Kend, Ind.; the Partridge .Academy, 
.Unxbury, Mass.; the McKeiidree College, Lebanon, Ills., and at 
Allen's English and Classical School, West Newton, Mass., where 
lie hiiished. He began business life about 1866, with Woodward, 
Brown & Co., commission merchants, then at No. 28 South Market 
street, Boston, where he remained until 1869. In that year he 
married, at Duxbur^-, the only child of Sanmel L,oring, and entered 
the employ of Mr. Coring, in the latter's tack and rivet business 
at Plymouth, Mass., where he remained until 1S82. In 1882 he 
became Treasurer of the Central Manufacturing Company, of Bos- 
ton, Mass., and occupied that position until August, 1886. This 
corporation being then dissolved, he returned to Plj'mouth, and in 
September of that year became partner of Mr. Loring, under the 
firm name cf Loring & Parks.- Mr. Loring died in May, 1887, and 
Mrs. Loring continued with Mr. Parks under the same firm title 
until her death, in 1891. In May, i89i, the bu.=!ness was sold out 
to the Atlas Tack Corporation, of Boston, of which Mr. Parks was 
the principal promoter and organizer, and became its Treasurer. 
This position he held until 1896. The corptsration is the oldest 
and several times the largest maker of tacks tiad small nails in the 
world. Its business was f.)unded in iSio, and consolidated in 1891. 
In the spring of 189,5 -'I^'- Parks became Treasurer for the Associa- 
ted AVire Nail and Qnt Nail Manufacturers of the United States, 
.^.nd Commissioner for the Associated Canadian Wire Nail and Cut 
Nail Manufacturers, which positions he held until the dissolution 
of these organizati<;>ns in the winter of 1S96. Mr. Parks has been 
Treasurer for the Associated Shovel Manufacturers since the ;;pring 
of 1S96. He is also Trea.-arer for several other organizations. He 
was one of the Syndicate v.'hich pron:oted and formed the American 
Steel & Wire Co., (capitalization, ^90,000,000). He promoted the 
National Shear Co., ,f;3,ooo,o'jo cajiitalization, and also the Mt. 
Vernon-Woodberry Cotton Duck Cj., of Baltimore Md., "^23,500,- 
000 capitalization. He wa.^ connected with several other "m •'gers"' 
in manufacturing lines, notably in caskets, scythes, stee' !;oods, 
leatJier, cement, bolts and nuts, valves, etc. 

Mr. Parks is also a Director of the Old Colony National Bank, 
of Plymouth, Mass. In the community in which he lives he has 
been prominent and influential in many ways. He is a Trustee of 
the Partridge Academy, Duxbury; Tru.stee of the Partridge Minis- 
terial fund, Du.Kbury; was for two years President of the Marshfield 
Agricultural vSociety, of Marshfield, Mass., and has been a Jus- 
tice of the Peace for twenty years. He has declined all public 
offices, though several times requested to accept prominent nomi- 
nations. His politics are Republican. He is connected with the 
Masonic fraternity, a member of the Blue Lodge and Samosct 
Chapter of Plymouth, and was a member of the Merchants', 
Algonquin and Exchange Clubs, of Boston, and the Commercial 
Club, of Plvmouth, until his resignations in 1897, upon the 
i-emoval of his principal office to New York, in 1897. Mr. Parks' 



232 PARKE FAMILIES 

prssent offices are at Sears Building, Boston, Mass., and WaTclvorf- 
Astoria Hotel, New York. Mr, Parks as an industrial organizer 
has few superiors. The Secretary of the National Hardware Asso- 
ciation, at the 1S99 annual convention of that organization, iu 
Pittsburgh, said:' 

"The Shovel Manufacturers' organization is otie of the large 
number of pools or combinations conducted by that peerless and 
fearless industrial organizer, J. H. Parks, of Boston and New York. 

" This association of manufacturers is in the foiirth year of it.s 
existence, and, while the most sanguine of its members at the time 
of its formation rather expected that the organization would require 
the services of the undertaker at the end of aljout two years, yet 
we are able to say it is in most splendid vigor and bids fair to die 
of old age rather than through assassination, suicide or paresis." 

Mr. Parks' success, as is that of most "successful Americans," 
is the result of many years of assiduous hard work, and, as he is 
still an active laborer in his chosen field of "organization," he is 
widely recognized as an important factor in marty of the present 
important industrial movements towards concentration of 
interests. 

He was married. May 27, 1869, to Miss Nancy Sprague L,oring, 
daughter of Samuel and L,aura A. B. Loring, of Duxbury, grand- 
neice of the Hon. Seth Sprague and Judge Peleg Sprague, Their 
children are: Laura Loring, (born May 27, 1870, married Septem- 
ber 19, 1894, to Thomas Russell, ex-Representative to the General 
Court, son of William G. Russell, of the law firm of Russell and 
Putnam, Boston), Samuel Loring (born in 1872). John Ward 
(born in 1879) and Bettina Loring Parks (born in 1884). Mr. 
Parks resides in Duxbury on the Loring homestead, which has 
been in the. Loring family since about 1707, and has from that 
time never been passed by deed, always by will. The old manor 
house on the homestead, still in an excellent state of preservation, 
was built in 1738.

FIRST GENERATION. 

1. EDWARD' PARKS, appeared at Guilford, 
Conn., about 1670. No authentic record has been 
discovered as to who his ancestors were. The "His- 
tory' of Guilford" sa3's that: " Kdward Parks came 
from Killingworth, was admitted a planter May 28, 
1671. He was by trade a tailor. He became one of 
the first settlers of (Cohabit,) North Guilford. He 
probably first settled in Norwich." There is nothing 
on the Norwich records, that could be found, that 
would tend to confirm the statement that he had ever 
resided in Norwich, Conn. He married Deliverance 
French, at Killing worth. Conn., Dec. 21, 1669. 

[Edward Parks, citizen and merchant tailor, of 
London, England, died Jan. 23, 1650. His will, 
proved Jan. 29, of that year, mentions wife, Mary; 
children, Henry, Edward, John, William, Stephen, 
Thomas, Dannett, Francis, Samuel, Elizabeth and 
Mary. To Henry he left all his property, lands, 
etc., "in New England, beyond the sea.'.' Edward 
received ^^^60; the others ;^500 apiece. Henry was 
of age, while the others were all minors. It is possi- 
ble that this son Edward, who was not twenty-one 
years of age in 1650, is our Edward who married in 
Killingworth in 1669. Henry's property was located 
near Boston, Mass., and it is possible that Edward 
31 



:42 PARKE FAMILIES 

came over to settle it up and remained here; locating- 
in Connecticut. However, this is merely conjecture, 
as nothir,*,^ to confirm it has been found, except the 
fact that he was a tailor and the Edward Parks, of 
London, was also a tailor.]

was one of the grantees of the new town of Tinmouth, 
N. H. It is probable that he and his family removed

friend of Abraham Lincoln, and practiced law in the

The following- list of the descendants of Peter 
Park is taken almost entirely from a small book 
published in 1876, entitled: " The Complete Record of 
the Descendants of Melvin, son of Peter Park, a na- 
tive of Scotland. Prepared by his Grandson, Rev. C. 
C. Park, of North Amherst, Lorain Co., Ohio, 1876." 
Some few additions and corrections have been made, 
and the female lines have not been followed out 
beyond the children of those born Park. The places 
of births, marriages and deaths are not included in 
the Rev. C. C. Park's book, and it has been impossible 
to gather this information, or to bring the matter up 
to date; as the living descendants have almost en- 
tirely ignored all letters and circulars sent to them on 
the subject. 

The first mention that we have of Peter Park is 
found on the town records of Stonington, which show 
his marriage and the births of his children. It is 
possible that he came originally from Scotland, but if 
so, no record of that fact can be found. It is sup- 
posed by some that he was descended from Robert^ 
Parke, of New London, through one of the missing 
branches of that family. This is quite possible, as 
there appears to have been a number of records in 
the neighborhood of New London and Stonington 
that have either been lost or destroyed.

The following list contains all of the Parlce name, 
under the various spellings, who fought in the Revo- 
lutionar}^ War on the side of the colonies, that have 
been found in printed works on the subject; together 
with a few names recovered from other sources. It 
is not claimed that this list is complete, as there is 
no doubt that many fought for short periods whose 
names did not get upon any lists that have been pre- 
served to our time. It is probably a fact that during 
the progress of the war, in the confusion, and uncer- 
tainty then existing as to its outcome, much data 
relating to the participants was destroyed as a pre- 
cautionary measure. Many knew that if the struggle 
should result disastrously to the Colonies, and Great 
Britain prove victorious, they would be ostracised as 
traitors and all their possessions forfeited to the 
Crown. 

Massachusetts had the largest number of our 
family names, as it also' had the largest number of 
men in the war; as it was at that time the largest 
Colony or State. Many of those whose names appear 
credited to Massachusetts and New York were mem- 
bers of our Connecticut families; they or their pa- 
rents having emigrated from Connecticut. Some 
names are probably duplicated through different 
spellings, and through having served in the Conti- 
nental Army from different states at different times. 

In looking for a particular ancestor one should 
not confine his search to the present spelling
