GenealogyofThe Parks and Related Familiescompiled byJames Edgar and Barbara Catron ParksAugust 2002The first portion of this book contains the stories about the people of the Parks andrelated families. This portion contains 19 chapters wiith the first chapter coveringthe origin of the family and the following chapters devoted to a generation of oneof the families.The second portion of the book contains the family trees - the list of namesorganized by generation. This book was developed using the Family Tree Makersoftware.Note: The spelling of the name varies from Parkes to Parks. Generally, the earlierfamilies used Parkes. We have used the form used in each reference source. Somefamily members are referred to as Parks by one author and Parkes by another. Toavoid confusion when using the family tree section of the book, check bothspellings and verify with dates and children's names.

IntroductionThe information in this book was compiled from research of other family members. We arevery grateful for the tremendous amount of work they have done. They worked through thehardship of locating records for the 1700s through early 1900s when no central record keepingwas available. They worked around the custom of naming children after relatives - a customwhich often resulted in many people with the same name living in the same time span. A deedto a "John Parks" could have belonged to any of three or more "John Parks" family members.We have attempted to present all of the reliable information we have located and notedinconsistencies. Most of the information is directly quoted and referenced in order to helpfuture researchers locate original sources and, perhaps, find new information to eliminatesome of the inconsistencies. The major sources of information include:(1) Contributions from North Carolina and Tennessee family membersJohn Avery and Janie Parks, Kaye Parks Glick, Larry and Pat Brown, Bobby and Linda Parks,Janice Hutchens Buchanan, Ross and Jean Wakefield Hutchins, Betty Parks (Mrs. Harry),Eddie and Brenda Perry, Sam Wakefield, Ethyl Rhyne, John and Joe Rhyne (TN), Frank Rhyne(TN), family recollections recorded by Cynthia Parks Whetstine, and research of Millie FoxHarbison(2) Web Sites, Books, and Other Contributions from Parks and Related FamiliesJohn Franklin Parkes and D.

The Thomas Parks FamilyChapter 1 - Origin of the Parks Family in America3

The Thomas Parks FamilyChapter 1 - Origin of the Parks Family in AmericaThis chapter contains information about the origin of the Parks family in England andearly Parkes settlers in America. Researching information from the seventeenth andeighteenth centuries is, of course, difficult due to the lack of records and the lack of acentralized system for maintaining records. The history of the Parks family is furthercomplicated by the number of family members with the same first name - a commonproblem for families of that period who tended to name their children after other familymembers.* To complicate things even more, by the first American census in 1790 therewere over 300 Parks listed as heads of families in America. Summarizing the informationwhich often differed between researches would have required making some decisions todetermine whose information was correct. Since we have no basis for making a decision,we have elected to COMPILE the information rather than summarize it. The entriesincluded in this chapter are DIRECTLY QUOTED in order to make the informationavailable in the original form for future researchers.*English Naming Patterns - Until the mid 1800's, most people of English or Scottish descentfollowed the following naming pattern: First-born son named for Father’s Father Second-born son named for Mother’s Father Third-born son named for Father Fourth-born son named for Father’s eldest brother First-born daughter named for Mother’s Mother Second-born daughter named for Father’s Mother Third-born daughter named for Mother Fourth-born daughter named for Mother’s eldest sisterSource: Notable Southern Families, Vol. VII, pp. 111-112, Compiled by Zella ArmstrongParkes, Parks, Parke, and Park, all are forms of one family name, said however, to have twodistinct derivations. One derivation is credited to the name Peter, through its variouscorruption, Pyrke, Perk, Purkis, Perkins and Peterkin. The original families assuming the nameprobably lived near the Royal Park in which case it is a place name, or they were descendantsof a Master of the Parke, as in the case of that loyal follower of William the Conqueror,Thomas de Parke. Thomas was rewarded for certain deeds of loyalty by large grants of landand a baronage and the place and perquisites of Master of the Royal Parke. He was also Masterof the Hunt for the Conqueror.Sir Thomas de Parke had a long line of successors and six hundred years later a directdescendant, Sir Robert de Parke, came to America. This was in 1630. He abandoned his title,although many of the emigrants of noble birth continued to use titles until the Revolutionautomatically made all citizens of equal distinction. Sir Robert de Parke, however, became Mr.Robert Parke shortly after his arrival in America.Sir Thomas de Parke, whose descendant, Sir Robert de Parke, settled in Connecticut, had4

The Thomas Parks Familytwo other emigrant descendants, close kin to Sir Robert de Parke, whose emigration is dated1630. About the same year as de Parke settled in Virginia.Daniel Parke, of Shirley, England, a near relative of Sir Robert, was vestryman ofWilliamsburg Church in Virginia, in 1676. He had a son, Daniel Park, who married Jane,daughter of Phillip Ludwell and had two daughters, Lucy Parke, who married Colonel WilliamByrd and Frances Parke who married John Custis.This is the family of which Daniel Parke Custis was a member. It was the widow of DanielParke Custis, the lovely Martha Dandridge Custis, who became the literal First Lady of ourLand, Madame George Washington.A Thomas de Parke, or Parkes, was living in Virginia in 1670, and he is the ancestor ofthe family . . . From the time of Thomas de Parke, in Virginia, 1670, members of this familyseem to use their personal discretion in spelling the name. They use or omit the e or the s orboth, so that literally four forms, Parke, Parkes, Park, and Parks are in use by close kinsmen.So far no one has considered reassuming the prefix de used by their ancestors for so manycenturies, as the tendency has been to shorten the name, but I shall not be surprised at anymoment to find "de Parkes" on the modern family tree.Source: "A Parks Family Supplement" No. 2, p. 1, The Ancestors of James M. HougeBackground - In England - Most researchers into the ancestry of the Parks seem to trace theorigin of the name and the line to the times of William, the Conqueror (1066-1087) in England.It is written: "Some who bear the name Parke are descended from a follower of William theConqueror. After the Conquest he was rewarded with grants of land in England; he was madeMaster of the Hunt and put in charge of the Royal Parks, and was given the title of Baronet.Thereafter he became known as Sir Thomas de Parke." (See Park/e/s and Bunch "On the TrailWest" compiled by Alice Crandal Park.) This reference agrees with those cited by ZellaArmstrong, Notable Southern FamiliesSource: John Franklin Parkes and D. L. Parks' www page. The following information wasdirectly copied from the www page ( jparkes/geneaology/index.html).Note: This is an excellent web page - very well documented! D. L. Parkes has been researchingthe family for more than 35 years (information copied from www in 2000). The standard forthis www page is "if you can't prove it, we can't use it."My interest in family history began around 1965 while living in California. My sister Noble(Parks) Wells came to see me. We decided to do something about the genealogy of our family.Noble had been searching for a few years. We knew very little about our Parks ancestry. Noblecould remember as a small girl going with our father by train from Jayton, Texas, to Ennis,Texas, to attend the funeral of our grandfather, William Abial Parks. We knew that William'swife was Anne Bandy Hutcheson. That's all we knew at the time. We went to the Los AngelesPublic Library to do some searching. Noble found a family history in an Ellis County Texashistory book about our great grandfather, John B. Parks. We were ecstatic. The seed wasplanted. Since that time the project has sent me across the United States from north to southand west to east some 40,000 miles through 32 states. Visits to many, many libraries andcourthouses. Joined about a dozen genealogical societies and walked more cemeteries than I5

The Thomas Parks Familycan remember. Spent several weeks in Salt Lake City at the Latter Day Saint's genealogicallibrary - the grandfather of all genealogical libraries.Research shows that our family name has been spelled in several ways such as Park, Parke,Parkes and Parks. But mostly the early ones spelled their name as Parke. I use Parks becausethat's the name my old Daddy gave me. With so many families giving their children the samegiven names, John, Thomas, Samuel, William, Benjamin etc. made it difficult to trace thefamily lineage by public records. Especially since there were very few records kept in the earlydays in this country. At the time of the first census in America in 1790 there were morethan three hundred Parks listed as heads of families. One source for the family name camefrom people who lived in the Valley of the Parch or Parc in southeastern France. Otherresearchers say the name came from a follower of William the Conqueror when he invadedEngland in 1066. This lineage has been traced back to Charlemagne, the great great grandfatherof Europe, whose progeny include not only the House of Windsor but also William theConqueror, Richard the Lionhearted, France's Capets, Valois and Burbons, some Hapsburgs,rulers of Spain and Portugal, Belgian and Hungarian rulers, some Prussians and Marie deMedici.On this side of the Atlantic the list includes John Adams, Calvin Coolidge, Franklin DelanoRoosevelt, Ethan Allen and Nathan Hale; Gloria Vanderbilt, J. P. Morgan and NelsonRockefeller; Orson Wells and Humphrey Bogart - all of whom are Parks cousins by decentfrom one or more of the daughters of Alice (Freeman) (Thompson) Parke. One researcher hasCharlemagne's birth date as 2 April 742, the illegitimate first son of Pepin the Short, Mayor ofthe Palace and Bertha Broadfoot, a Count's daughter. After William's conquest of the BritishIsles he rewarded one of his men by bestowing upon him the title of Baronet. Thereafter he wasknown as Sir Thomas de Parke. It is said that one of his direct descendants was Sir Robert deParke who came to Connecticut in 1630 as Secretary to Governor Winthrop. He soon droppedhis title in the more equalitarian colonies and became a prominent citizen of the colony. Thisman is probably the most prominent of the Parks immigrants and has literally thousands ofdescendants in this country today. This is the man Zella Armstrong, the well know genealogist,thought was connected to our Parks bunch. I have never found any proof of that.People of the Parks name continued to come to America (Continuation from above source) Richard Parke arrived from London on the "Defense" in 1635. He settled in Massachusettsand has descendants throughout the United States. Edward Parks came to Connecticut around 1669. His descendants moved west, includingseveral prosperous bankers and lawyers. Among them was Judge Samuel C. Parks ofKansas City, a lifelong friend of Abraham Lincoln.

Sir Thomas de Parke had a long line of successors and six hundred years later a direct descendant, Sir Robert de Parke, came to America. This was in 1630. He abandoned his title, although many of the emigrants of noble birth continued to
