  • Note:
    I enjoy doing this research it is a labor of love on my part. I hope other can and will be able to use the information that I have included in this file to fill in the blanks in their genealogy research.
    This genealogy research is my way of remembering the ones who have passed on as I too will be gone someday
    Researching the following Y-DNA Parker Family Group #7 see this link. http://web.utk.edu/~corn/parkerdna/park5.htm
    I want to give a great big thank you to my first cousin Homie Parker Holly for starting me down the long winding path in 1991. I also want to thank my late cousin Stephen M. Lawson for all the work he did. His web site is still up (Sept. 2013) at this link. http://kinnexions.com/smlawson/parkerr.htm#EParker

    A big thanks to cousin Paul Parker of Shelbyville, Bedford Co., TN ( Paul and his brother Dale) still own Elijah Parker (my line) old home place. Located in the Raus Community of Bedford County, Parkers’ Farm is one of the oldest in Bedford Co., TN. Paul has many of the record from Elijah Parker, these records have help me in 1991 trace our Parker back to Richard Parker I.
    I want to thank all the members of FG#7 who are helping me with this research and thanks to all of my cousins who have shared their work with me. I appreciate all the information and encouragement you all have provided to me. Wayne Nelson Parker P239.
    Members of FG#7 are P11,35,69,83,91,92,106,110,113,120,140,175,183,175,183,184,185,198,212,220 ,239,257,280,283,296,303,316,317,353,355,367,368,371,386,401,402,412

    NOTE: See more information about members of FG#7 listed under Richard Parker I son of this William Parker.
    Thanks to Raymond Parker Fouts and her great book "Following The Land". She is a very dear lady. NOTE: There are a least three different Y-DNA Groups of Parker families in her book!!!!!

    I have tried to do the best research that I can but please check the information before you use it, errors happens. Corrections and updates always welcome. THANKS Wayne N. Parker"
    I am 99.998% sure that FG#7 line is from Richard Parker I of Nansemond Co.,VA and by land records of William Parker born 1604 see below, I am now 99.998% sure that this William is the father of Richard Parker I.
    At this time July 2013 I am not sure if William had a son named Thomas due to Y-DNA research this line belongs to FG#1
    so I have separated the Thomas Parker born Bet. 1626 - 1630 line from William Parker born 1604.

    Based on my research (Wayne Nelson Parker) This William Parker born 1604 (FG#7) is not the son of Captain William Parker "The Mariner". I have an abstract of the will for Captain William Parker dated January 16,1617 proven December 4,1619. THERE WAS NO SON NAMED William Parker listed in his will !!!!!!!!! IN FACT BASED ON Y-DNA, William Parker "The Mariner" belongs to Parker FG#12 NOT FG#7!!!
    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.

    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.

    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 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.

    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

    Parker it is ultimately of French occupational origins. It described an official in charge of the extensive hunting parks of a king or wealthy landowner. The derivation is from the words "parchier" or "parquier" meaning "park- keeper". The surname was first recorded in Englnd in the latter half of the 11th Century following the 1066 Norman Invasion, and as such was one of the very earliest surnames on record. Only five percent of the entries in the great Domesday Book of 1086 show people having surnames, and this is one of them. Amongst these very early recordings are examples such as Geoffrey Parchier, in the book of 'Seals' for the county of Northumberland, dated 1145 a. d. and Adam le Parker in the Hundred Rolls of the county of Norfolk for the year 1273.
    The surname was one of the very first in the new American colonies. William Parker, aged 20, who arrived in the ship Charles of London, in the year 1616, is shown in the records for January 23rd 1624 as being in the "muster" of Susan Bush, of 'Elzabeth Cittie'. Quite what his situation was is far from clear, as Susan Bush herself arrived in 1617, and was only aged 20!
    The first recorded spelling of the family name is shown to be that of Anschetil Parcher, which was dated 1086, in the Domesday Book of the county of Somerset, during the reign of King William 1, known as "The Conqueror", 1066 - 1087.
