Sparks Genealogy & History

Sparks is an ancient Anglo-Saxon name, derived from the unusual given name Sparrowhawk ("Spearhafoc" in Anglo-Saxon). Family legend holds the name was given to the chief falconer for Richard the Lionhearted, whose favorite falcon was the sparrowhawk. In Sparks genealogy, the name was likely abbreviated to Sparhawk, then to Spark, with Sparks being the patronymic ("son of") form. A family seat in Cheshire is part of Sparks family history in feudal times, and the family motto, "celer et verus", means swift and true, like the sparrowhawk bird. John Sparks was the first Sparks emigrant to America arriving in Virginia in 1621.
