Perkins Family

Our advertisers help pay the expenses of this site. Please patronize them.

There are a number of variations of the spelling of Perkins in the various Perkins families including Parkins, Parkens, Purkins, Perkyns, Parkyns, Piers, and others.

The name Perkins in its Anglo Saxon version means son of Peter and became popular during the Middle Ages. The French names of Peterkin and Piers were introduced in Britian after the Norman Conquest of 1066.

Most of the Perkins settlers in the United States came from England or Wales. We have Perkins ancestors in several branches of our family. The earliest documented Perkins is William Perkins who was born in 1430 in Hilmorton, Warwinkshire, England. Our line of descendants from William Perkins may be seen here.

Our closest Perkins relative in the Ashworth line is Mary Molly Perkins who married
James Joseph Ashworth, Jr. James Joseph Ashworth, Jr. was the son of
James Joseph Ashworth, Sr. The Perkins and Ashworths and other families of Southwest Louisiana are closely related. I will be showing this branch as the Maryland branch Pedigree.

Our closest Perkins relative in the Ellis line is Elizabeth Perkins who married Joseph Ellis. I will be showing this branch as the Virginia branch Pedigree.

These two branches originate from two brothers (Thomas Perkins and Richard Parkyns), sons of William Perkins of Hillmorton, Warwinkshire, England.
