Parr Genealogy & History

The surname Parr has three possible origins. It may be British locational from Parr in Lancashire, from the seventh-century Old English word pearr, meaning enclosure or living in an enclosed area. The Parr genealogy lists Henry de Par in England as early as 1216. Alternatively, it may be an occupational name from the German pare, meaning parish or minister's house, perhaps denoting a parson. Finally, but discounted by some, it may have derived from the French personal name Perre or Pierre, translating to the English Peter. Parr family history notes that Margaret Parr left England, perhaps the first Parr landing in Virginia in 1636.
