The PARKER family linages go centuries back to the Knights of England, the Earls of northern Scotland, the early Kings and Queens of Norway, Scandinavia, Sweden, and Turkey. The line comes from JUDAH of Israel who had children with TAMAR. ZARAH was JUDAH's son whose children had kingdoms in Turkey and over time they moved to Sweden.

Rognvald II Brusisson ,Earl of Orkney, Scotland, (of Norse decent) was murdered in 1046. Robert le Brus, his son, was in danger and deposed. Robert le Brus of Scotland went to Norway and Normandy, where he joined with William the Conqueror, who was his distant cousin. When Sir Robert, knighted by William, came to England with him at the Norman invasion in 1060, he and his family were surnamed LE PARQUIER.

LE PARQUIER means the guardian of the King's Park.

Sir Robert le Brus le Parquier son's name was Sir Robert Adam de Brusse le Paquier of Yorkshire, England.

They then went by le Parquier, La Parcar, Parks, de Parke, de Parkes, de Park, Parke, Parks, and PARKER.

Dr. Richard Parker I emigrated to the Colony of Virginia, Nasemond County, in 1647. The reason that he emigrated was due to a price being placed on his head by Oliver Cromwell for his support of Charles I and the Royalist Army.

The PARKER FAMILY CREST states in Latin: " For the Faithful, there will be Certain Reward."
