I am reseaching Thomas Parke, also. I have that he was b. Feb. 13, 1615 in Hitcham, Suffolk England and d. July 30, 1709 in Presston, Conn. m. Dorthy Thompson Oct. 20, 1644 in Wetherefield, conn.
I have only 4 Children listed as follows:
Martha: b. 1646. d. Feb. 14, 1717. M Isaac Wheeler, Jan. 4, 1672 in Norwich, Conn. Thomas: b. April 18, 1648. d. 1746. m. Mary Allyn Captain John: b. 1649. d. March 21, 1718 M. (1) Mary Treat in 1684, (2) Elizabeth Miller October 5, 1694.
NOTE: for Mary Treat: Mary was the wife of the late Rev. Salmon Treat.
Nathaniel: b. Mar. 6, 1652. d. Apr. 7, 1718, m. Sarah Greer, Feb. 28, 1677
My husband is also a descendant of Thomas Parke; His line, in reverse goes like this, I hope this is right, if anyone out there can see where there are mistakes I would appreciate knowing them. Here is my husband's line starting from his grandfather and back:
Charles Henry Parks son of William Henry Parks & Whilhema Mikel, he is the son of James Parks and Susan Holmes, he is the son of Cyrenius Parks and Elizabeth Carscallen, he is the son of James parks and Sarah Newcombe, he is the son of Joseph parke and Mary Smith, he is the son of Nathaniel Parke and Sarah Greer, he is the son of Thomas Parke and Dorthy Thompson
I also have further information dating back to 1369 from the LDS.
Would like to hear from anyone with more information on this line of Parke and willing to give what information I have.

This seems like a good time to reiterate some URL's that provide information about the Park/e/s Society. Anyone researching the surname Park/e/s is welcome, but the Society was originally formed to delineate those related to Robert Parke, b 1580, Preston, ENG and in whose honor the name of Preston, CT was derived. As has been well defined, the Thomas Parke under discussion was one of his sons.
Membership in the Society, among other things, can be of *great* help to those researching descendants of Robert Parke.

I have this from "The Hamlin Family" Book
THOMAS PARKE,2 b. England, come with his father to America; m. Dorothy Thompson; was of Wethersfield, Ct., 1648; removed to Stonington, then to New London, 1649; Preston, 1686; first deacon of the church there, 1698. He d. July 30, 1709.
The following is from the book "The Bromley Genealogy" Thomas Parke, born in England in 1622, came with his father and lived in Wethersfield and Preston, Conn., of which town he was one of the incorporators in 1686, and gave the name to the town from his birthplace, in Preston, England. He was a deacon in the Rev. Treat's church. He married, in 1645, Dorothy Thompson, daughter of John and Alice Thompson, of Preston, England. He died in Preston, Conn., July 30, 1709, and his will was probated in Sept., 1709.
His children were: Martha, born in Wethersfield, 1646; died Feb. 14, 1717; married, Jan. 16, 1667-8, Isaac Wheeler; born 1646; died June 5, 1712. Thomas, born in Wethersfield, April 18, 1648; died 1697-8; married
Mary Allyn, daughter of Robert, of New London. Robert, born in New London; married, Nov. 24, 1681, Rachel Leffingwell, daughter of Thomas and Mary Bushnell. Dorothy, born in New London March 16, 1652; married, in April, 1670, Joseph Morgan. Nathaniel, died 1718; married Sarah Geer, daughter of George and Sarah (Allyn) Geer. William, married, Dec. 3, 1684, Hannah Frink, born 1661, daughter of John, of Stonington, and Grace (Stevens) Frink.
Toni, I don't see a James listed in the above. I descend from Thomas Parke. My line, in reverse goes like this (and I hope to heck I have it right)
Cynthia Jane Parks married Edmund W. Hubbard, She was the daughter of: Robert Parks and Lucy Brookins, he the son of Ellijah Parks, Jr and Hannah Hotchkiss, he the son of Elijah Parks, Sr. and Anna Smith, he the son of Simeon Parks and Anne Button, he the son of Eleazer Parks and Eliphel Button, he the son of Thomas Parks and Mary Allyn, he the son of Thomas Parke and Dorothy Thompson
Cynthia Jane Parks was my gg-grandmother. Her family was from Rutland Co., Vermont. I think it was Elijah Parks, Sr. who came from Connecticut. Would have to look at records to make sure. Been a long time.

Dee It would appear that "The Hamlin Family" book is incomplete. The following list is derived mostly from articles which appeared in the "Parke Society Newsletter" and sources are well documented. Your list does have some dates that my list does not. My line derives from Nathaniel, son of Thomas and I have not been too concerned with the other lines.
