    Note:
    For many years ROGER'S descendants were not aware of their immigrant ances tor.
    They believed him to be a "John Parke of Virginia". There they natural ly found several Johns! They believed that Roger was born in Cumberland C o. about 1648 and that the family were Quakers.
    ROGER married Anne PATISON 10 April 1676 as recorded at the Holmes Month ly Meeting in Taylorburne, Allendaile, near Hexham, Northumberland . Wheth er this was his first marriage is not known.
    The next confirmation was his "letter of removal" to the Chesterfield Me eting near Burlington NJ in June 1682. This corresponded with the da te of Roger's first deed, "late of Hexham, Northumberland" with the purcha se of 200 acres of land in May from Edward BYLINGE, clearly identifying t he immigrant' Roger. In 1702 we find find that there bad been a break wi th the Quakers as Roger, a neighbor Andrew SMITH, and several others join ed the Church of England in Burlington. This coincided with the arriv al of the Rev George KEITH, sent over by the Society for Promoting Christi an Knowledge. Through him grew what became known as the Keithian Moveme nt in New Jersey. It should be noted that in New England there were Purita ns and Separatists (from the Church of England) and Quakers in Philadelph ia and west Jersey. While to the south, the Church of England was the crow n-designated only church. (Keith's break with the Quakers is another subje ct to pursue.)
    During the time he was settled in West Jersey, ROGER had close contact wi th the local Indians. He showed great interest in their study of her bs as a source of healing. Much of this he learned from the Indians and pr acticed the use of herbs among his neighbors.
    He soon became known as Dr. Parke and was highly revered by many who ca me for his cures.
