Parkers in UK and USA

I would like to know if it is possible to verify something using DNA.  In the 1500s Captain William Parker's son emigrated to Virginia from Southampton in England.  Have any of his descendants in America had a DNA test done and what does it show?  Are they closely related to Parkers descended from Richard Parker who emigrated from Devon in UK?

I am asking this question because I am probably descended from a sibling or nephew of Captain William Parker who stayed in Southampton UK.  This line goes through my mother.  I am also related to the Parkers of Browsholme, the ancestors of Richard Parker of Virginia, through my father.  Since records back beyond 1500 are scarce if would be good to have some confirmation of a relationship through DNA.

  • Hi Sarah,

     Yes it is possible to verify family connection using DNA. i will give you two web sites to look at. One the first you will see all the different Parker families that have been matched using Y-DNA.

    http://web.utk.edu/~corn/parkerdna/

    One the second you can read about the different tests that are available from the DNA testing company.

    I am going to post below information about my family as I am from Richard Parker line from my post here on PH.

    Wayne N.Parker researcher for P239 FG#7

     Please read below and I will be happy to answer any question you may have about this Parker family.

    I would to like to take some time to set the records straight on the Facts, Legends, Myths, and misinformation concerning Richard Parker I of Nansemond Co., VA. I am one of his direct decedent proved both by a paper trail and by Y-DNA testing. This Parker family belongs to FG#7

    1. This Richard Parker was not, I repeat not Dr. Richard Parker..

    2. Richard Parker of Nansemond Co., VA did not, repeat did not married Elizabeth Bailey. I don't know who his wife was.

    3. I have not been able to connection this Richard Parker to the Browsholme Parker family of England or to any other Parker family in England.

    4. Looking at the land records of early VA. William Parker may be the father of Richard Parker 1. I have not other proof at this time except the land records but I have added William Parker as the father of Richard Parker I in my file.

    5. Based on land records, deeds and wills (no will has been found but it is referenced to is a deed to his three sons) Richard Parker I had three sons that we know of. Richard II. Thomas and Francis Parker.

    6. Richard Parker II wife was supposed to be a Pender after many years of research I can find no

      documents to support this claim. I don't know his wife name.

    7. Richard II Parker had a son named Richard Parker III, I think he had other children but I don't have enough information to prove any of his other children.

    8. Richard I. Richard II and Richard III all lived in Nansemond Co.,VA

    9. Richard Parker III was living in Chowan Co., NC in 1729 but he did not move to NC, In 1728 VA and NC agree to have the diving line between the two states resurveyed as there was a big dispute between the two states as to where the border was located . After the line was run Richard Parker III now lived just over the border in NC and he now has land in both states.

    10. Richard Parker III had at least two wives and maybe three. (1) His first was either Elizabeth (King) or Swan. I have no good proof on either name but I have put his first wife as Elizabeth (King) in my file. We know Elizabeth died about 1728.

    11. His wife at his death was Hannah. He had children by both wives.

    12. Richard Parker III and his first wife Elizabeth had a son named Jonathan Parker. Jonathan Parker was married twice his first wife was Charity Benton daughter of John Benton. His second wife was Ann Copeland. Jonathan was never married to a Miss Howell (as many have said) My line come from Elijah Parker son of Jonathan and Ann Copeland Parker.

    For more information on the decedents of Richard Parker I see my on-line file is at this link.

    I would also recommend this web site if you want to learn something about Dr. Richard Parker of VA. Steven Williamson has done a great job of researching this Richard Parker. He also has done a great job of analysis.

    **Was Richard Parker the Chirurgeon a son of James Parker and Katherine Buller of Cornwall **

    • In point 4 you mention a William Parker.  Is this Captain William Parker the privateer who came from Exeter?  He had sons who settled in America.

      • This is what I have on William Parker. I don't think this is the William Parker that you are looking for but I really don't know he could be. What do yo think.

        I am 99.998% sure that FG#7 line is from Richard Parker I of Nansemond Co., VA. but is he the son of William Parker born 1604, I don't know, so till we have more information, I will leave Richard I as his son. I will not be trying to solve this mystery one way or the other at this time. WNP 2013"

        I have separated the Thomas Parker born Bet. 1626 - 1630 line from William Parker born 1604.

        The year of William Parker birth of 1604 is found below, for when the census was taken on February 7,1624/25 his age is 20 years old. Yes he came over in 1616 in the Charles and some researches think that means he was born in 1596 but that is not what the record below shows.

        http://www.virtualjamestown.org/
        In June 1624, King James I assumed responsibilty for the colony of Virginia after he dissolved the Virginia Company of London. He ordered Virginia's leaders to make a record of the colony's inhabitants and their provisions. This census-known as the 1624/5 Muster-is the first comprehensive account of households in British North America. In addition, it is the only extant census for seventeenth-century Virginia. A 1623/4 list of the colony's habitants noted who survived the 1622 Indian attack and where they lived. This list did not include details about the relations among the settlers or their ages.
        The 1624/5 Muster is a house-to-house survey that contains information about the location of households in Virginia, the individuals in each household and the ties that connected the colony's early residents to one another. The census-takers also made note of each household's provisions, buildings, boats, arms and ammunition, and livestock. The names of individuals who died during 1624 is part of the muster.

        Name “William Parker “ Muster “Susan Bush “ Status “servant” Location “Elzabeth Cittie” Corporation “ Elzabeth Cittie “ Age “20” Ship “Charles” Date of Arrival “1616” Muster Date “7 February 1624/5”.

        I found this information about the ship Charles. Hope I can find some more information that at can be traced back to original records.

        Elizabeth City County, one of the eight original shires, was created in 1634. It was originally known by the name of Kecoughton. The name was later changed to Elizabeth City County which became extinct in 1952 when it was incorporated into the City of Hampton. The City of Hampton was burned during the Revolutionary War, The War of 1812 and during the Civil War. Some records exist from 1634 to 1861. The records are complete from 1865 to present day.

        Elizabeth City (Virginia Company)
        From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

        Elizabeth City (or citiie as it was then called) was one of four incorporations established in the Virginia Colony in 1619 by the proprietor, the Virginia Company. The plantations and developments were divided into four "incorporations" or "cities", as they were called. These were Charles City, Elizabeth City, Henrico City, and James City. The latter included the seat of government for the colony at Jamestown. Each of the four "citiies" (sic) extended across the James River, the main conduit of transportation of the era. In 1634, under Royal authority, a portion became Elizabeth City Shire, later Elizabeth City County.

        Retrieved from "http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elizabeth_City_(Virginia_Company)"

        William Parker served as a Burgess for Upper Norfolk in the General Assembly of Virginia as of 12 January 1642/43.

        Nansemond:
        Nansemond County, VA was first outposted as a part of the London Company in the early 1600’s, but this early outpost was not continuously occupied until 1621. Dr. Hugh Williamson, M.D., LLD in his The History of North Carolina, pub. By Thomas Dodson, PA, stated, "A small party was detached by order of Captian Smith (1621) from Jamestown to the post that had formerly been taken on the Nansemond River. From that Settlement, emigrants commenced in a short time to the waters of the Albemarle Sound, by way of Blackwater and Bennet’s Creek. Blackwater Creek is the headwaters of the Chowan River and either Blackwater or Bennetts Creek would have been the normal from Nansemond County to Chowan Precinct in North Carolina."

        Formed as Upper Norfolk in 1637 from New Norfolk County.
        Renamed in 1642.
        Records were destroyed in 1866.
        Incorporated as the City of Nansemond in 1972. Merged with the City of Suffolk in 1974.

        All records transferred to City of Suffolk. Records include: Marriage from 1866, Land from 1734, Probate from 1866, and Court Records from 1774.

        County Court Records were destroyed in three separate fires, the earliest of which consumed the house of the court clerk in April 1734 (where the records were kept at that time), and the last on 7 February 1866. A few Fee Books have been found in the records of Sussex County.

        The boundary line between Virginia and North Carolina had been in dispute for many years so in 1728 a new survey was run. The border was adjusted to the north about 15 miles moving lands that were part of Nansemond Co., VA into Chowen Co., NC. When they completed the new survey some of the landowner's found that they now had land that was split by the boundary between the two states.
        Parts of Chowen Co., NC was later split into Gates Co., NC and Bertie Co., NC
        See map before and after 1728 survey at this link. http://genealogy.ztlcox.com/~xcc2all/cfreddukefiles/vancdividinglin...

        Gates County( NC) was a part of an area originally called "Albemarle", named for George, Duke of Albemarle. Later, what is now Gates County was split into three separate entities: Hertford, Chowan, and Perquimans counties. Most of the land within the present boundaries was considered to be Nansemond County, VA, until 1728, when William Byrd had surveyed the "dividing line" between Virginia and North Carolina.
        The area was in controversy between the two States until then, and both granted land to applicants. It was Chowan County, and a narrow strip of Perquimans, until 1759, when all the area west of Bennett's Creek was cut off to Hertford County.

        http://gates.lostsoulsgenealogy.com/
        Gates was formed in 1779 from Chowan, Hertford, and Perquimans counties. It was named in honor of General Horatio Gates, who commanded American Army at the Battle of Saratoga. It is in the northeastern section of the State and is bounded by Camden, Pasquotank, Perquimans, Chowan and Hertford counties, and the state of Virginia. Gatesville is the county seat.
        Gates County was a part of an area originally called "Albemarle", named for George, Duke of Albemarle. Most of the land within the present boundaries was considered to be Nansemond County, VA, until 1728, when William Byrd had surveyed the "dividing line" between Virginia and North Carolina. In 1779 the area between the Chowan River to the West and Southwest, South of the county of Nansemond, Va., West of the Dismal Swamp and North of Catherine Creek and Warwick Creek was separated into a county all it's own. The physical land barriers of swamps or rivers made it difficult for residents of this area to travel to government seats in bad weather, and it was for this reason, among others that Gates County became an entity of it's own. In 1780 a courthouse, prison and stocks were built in Gatesville, at that time known as Gates Court House.

        General William P. Roberts, who at age 20 was the Confederate's youngest Brigadier General, was born in Gates County July 11, 1841. He commanded the N.C Cavalry, 12th NC Battalion, Georgia Battalion, Gen W.H.F. Lee's Division, and Hampton's Cavalry Corps Army of Northern Virginia. In 1875 he represented Gates County at the constitutional convention, and the following year he was elected to the state legislature. In 1880, he became a state auditor and served in that capacity until 1888. Roberts died in Norfolk, Virginia, on March 28, 1910, and was buried in the Gatesville Cemetery.

        Gates County includes communities (historic and otherwise) with such names as Acorn Hill, Ballard Crossroads, Beckford Junction, Buckland, Carter, Corapeake, Dort, Drum Hill, Eason Crossroads, Eleanors Crossroads, Eure, Flat Branch, Folly Fork, Gates Court House, Gatesville, Greens Fork, Hazelton, Hobbsville, Hoflers Fork, Holly Grove, Joppa, Kellogs Fork, Keys Crossroads, Mintonsville, Mitchells Fork, Muddy Cross, Old Chapel Crossroads, Parkers Fork, Pipkin Place, Powell Crossroads, Rays Beach, Riddick Crossroads, Sarem, Selwin, Storys, Sunbury, Topsy, Walton Crossroads, and Wyanoke
