PERKIN Family HistoryThis most interesting surname is of Old French and early medieval English origin. It is composed of a medieval diminutive of the Greek name "Peter" or the French variant "Piers, Pierre", plus the suffix "-kin", although in this case the suffix itself has been further altered by local dialects to its present form. The surname spelling forms include Parks, Perks, Parkin, Perkin and Perkins, the plurals being patronymics i.e. 'Son of Peter'. The surname is first recorded in the 14th century (see below), and thereafter its popularity expanded rapidly.
