Park Family Crest


Park Family Crest
 The Scottish surname Park, also found in England and Ireland, is derived from  the Middle English, Old French parc meaning ‘park,” an occupational name for someone employed in a park or a topographic name for someone who lived in or near a park. In the Middle Ages a park was a large enclosed area where the landowner could hunt game. The first written reference to the name is in  1272 when Henry del Parck is recorded in the Assize Court rolls of Staffordshire. The famous Scottish explorer, Mungo Park, (1771 - 1806), led two expeditions to trace the source of the Niger in Africa, and published an account of his adventures, "Travels", in 1799.
