Origin of Surname

The name means from the park, which could mean cattle pen, tournament lists or skittle alley. It is more likely to refer to the name of a hamlet near parkland, or an enclosed area for animals.

Duparque is the common spelling in the northern French region of Picardie, and Duparc and Duparcq are also found.

Early records

The first church record in Jersey for du Parcq is that of the marriage of Jean, of Grouville, to Sara Le Manquais, daughter of Jean, in St Martin's Parish Church in 1644. The couple settled in St Martin and had two children, Jean and Marie. But, as can be seen from the tree below, the ancestry of these du Parcqs has been traced some way further back to the mid-15th century.
