PARK (Ireland>US>Ireland>Canada)

Meaning/Pronunciation: Pronunciation: PaRk. Meaning: Dweller in, or near a park or enclosure; a park warden or gamekeeper.

Origin: Apparently this is an English surname, which is unsurprising coming from an Irish family of this time. We only have this part of the family traced back three generations, so…

Variations: None in our family line.

Relation to me: This is my maternal grandfather’s mother’s maiden name.

i: Park, Mary, 1891–1984, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, US; Bjarne Bordewick, 2 sons

ii: Park, Robert, 1852-1930, Ireland (Dublin?); Elizabeth Curran, 2 sons, 5 daughters

iii: Park, John, ?-?, Ireland (?), ? Dunlop, only 1 son known

Looking for:
Any information on Robert Park’s family. I recently found his death certificate, which listed his father’s name and his mother’s maiden name, but I know nothing else about the family before they came to the US.

About this blog

This blog is maintained by two sisters who have had a life long interest in geneology.
Mika writes here mostly about our family (Hansen, Hillinger, Bordewick, Park, etc), and her search for more information.
Shannon mostly uses this space as a place to make the many stories written about and by her husband's family (Holly, Walker, Walpole, etc) available to the rest of the family, present and future.

Our blog is named Oh Spusch! mostly because Shannon is bad at naming things. The first post I put up includes a story about the time Walker's great grandfather took his whole family out to see a play and the littlest kept saying "Oh! Spusch!" No one ever figured out what she meant by that.
