The Parker Name

A Parker was the keeper of a park where deer and other game were kept in good condition and in plentiful supply ready for the hunts of the King or Nobleman who owned the preserve. There were many of these preserves and their keepers were not necessarily related.
There were at least three contemporary Richard Parkers who came early to Virginia and are often confused: There is
1. Mr. Richard Parker ca 1620 – 1680 of Nansemond Co;
2. Richard Parker d. 1677 “the Brassier” who settled in Surry County and
3. Dr. Richard Parker 1630 – ca 1681 who settled in Williamsburg and is the man from Browsholme.
Another early emigrant was Thomas Parker 1629 – 1685 who settled in Isle of Wight Co and called his home “Macclesfield.”

All of these Parkers had lots of children and many of their descendants moved down into Northern North Carolina into the territory I am interested in.
Indeed, they appear to have tried very hard to keep the Biblical injunction to “go and populate the world.”

  1. Hello,
    I hope you’re well! I like how put-together your page is! I have been trying to find the next generation in my Parker family. At this point, I have no clue where to turn! I have evidence to prove back to my fifth great-grandfather, Jesse Parker (b. 1805 NC-d.1871 Ashe County, NC). However, No one-and I mean no one-can find anything on his father! I have been trying for such a long time. I do have a letter from a family member generations back stating that Jesse’s father was a Nathan Parker born in England (1750) and came to Maryland, USA. After serving in the Revolutionary War, he settled in Guilford County, NC where he had Jesse. However, I cannot find any information on a Nathan Parker living in Guilford County, NC. I am hitting quite the brick wall! If you could help in any way, I’d be very grateful!
    God bless!
    James Parker

  2. I am looking for information on Osceola Parker, brother was Alson Parker, mother was Polly Morris and father Joseph Parker. With a name like Osceola, I was wondering if he was of Seminole descent.
