Notes for Richard Parks
Sailed from London in the ship "Defence" which left England on August 10, 1635, and arrived in Boston on October 3, 1635. According to the passenger list he was aged 33, his wife Margery was aged 40, his daugher Isabel was aged 7, and his daughter Elizabeth was aged 4. He was in Cambridge in 1636 and was a proprietor at the Farms, now Lexington, in 1642. He resided in Cambridge for 17 years before his death. Parks has more details.

WILL: Date: 12 MAY 1665

Confirm birthdate/place, deathdate from PAF. They have to have some errors as they have a 12 Jul 1664 deathdate, yet his will is dated 1665.

PAF also has a William or Thomas Parke, b. 1557, and wife Mary Manning, b. 1561, as parents. This seems unlikely as mother would be 48 at time of Richard's birth.496
