10288 George Parkhurst.602 b. in say 1480-90. d. Guildford, Surrey, England about 1546.

The name Parkhurst derives from a wooded park called Parkhurst which was located about nine miles from Guildford. The earliest mention of the name comes in 1464. The first record of George Parkhurst was a licence to sell at the local market on April 3, 1514. The same year he was chosen Hallwarden, an officer of the Guild Hall. He was named Bailiff of Guildford on October 6, 1515. Also in 1515, he served as the official town "Flesh and Fish Taster" - a regulatory position. In 1522 he was elected as Mayor and Coroner of Guildford and re-elected in 1529 and 1533. He appears in a list of the local militia as owning a suit of armor and a pike. In 1545 and 1546, he along with others was fined for "permitting their taverns on High Street to be enclosed to the common nuisance."602

His son John Parkhurst was a graduate of Oxford University, a scholar, rector and a supporter of the reformation. He was named to several highly placed positions including chaplain to the Queen, Katherine Parr, chaplain to the Duke of Suffolk. When Queen Mary came to the throne, he left England and stayed at Zurich where he was accepted by other Calvinists. After the accession of Queen Elizabeth, he retuned to England and was elected as Bishop of Norwich in 1560. He was also made D.D. from Oxford in 1566 and published a collection of Latin epigrams written in his youth. His later years were marked by scandal when one of his servants misappropriated funds which were donated to the diocese.603
