The History of the Isle of Wight mentions a royal park called 
" I'.irkhurst l-'ore^t." • Tw.. ceiiiurie- ago a colony of I'arkhursts 
migrated from l'arkhur>t, on that i-land, to Surrey County, in 
England, from which branch of liie family the .Americans of thi-, 
name are suppo>etl to have deMeiided. The original seal of the 
clan in Surrev \^a^ at •Farkhur-t Manor, between Kfjsom and 
Guilford, contiscated about 1745, as tradition ^avs. for connection 
of its possessors with the rebellion in favor of the exiled Stuarts. 
In 1635 a Parkhur>t wa^ Lord .\la\orof Loiuhm, but whether of 
our .American bram h is not cert.iiuly known. Bishop f'arkhurst 
of Norwich, llngland, who theil in 1574, is supposed to have been 
the grandlatlier or the gieat-,^ randfather (jf ( ieorge, the hrst 
settler in America. ( leorge's tlaughter, I'iieije, married one 
Thomas Arnokl, who binight Jo.ooo acres of land in the territory 
now Providence, K. 1., making the purchase from the Indians, and 
in 1640 he was a freeu».in in Watertoun ; .\rnold ua> able to trace 
Ills ancestry back through seventeen gener.itions to \ nir, King of 
(iwentland, A. 1). 1100, who wa-, a direct des< eiulant from Cad- 
waladyr of We.sse.x, King of the llritoiis from oSS to 7J,S.
