PARKIN Family History

This most interesting surname is of Old French and early medieval English origin. It is composed of a medieval diminutive of the Greek name "Peter" or the French variant "Piers, Pierre", plus the suffix "-kin", although in this case the suffix itself has been further altered by local dialects to its present form. The surname spelling forms include Parks, Perks, Parken, Parkin, Perkin and Perkins, the plurals being patronymics i.e. 'Son of Peter'. The surname is first recorded in the 14th century (see below), and thereafter its popularity expanded rapidly. Early examples include Robert Parkyn of Stafford in the county rolls of 1327, and Maud Parkyns of Warwick and John Perkyn of Somerset, in the Hundred Rolls of their respective counties in 1380...
