Don't know if we are related, but I've found a bunch of Parretts buried in Atchison, KS; and a few in Iowa. That's where my great grandfather (Robert Taylor Parrett) was buried. He was supposedly from Wales. Do you know where your Parretts are from?

Mine were Parret and from France and Switzerland. Not Wales. It's not an English name, as far as I have heard.

Tony Parrett it is my contention that the name Parrett is French. I have spoken with several French folks and am trying to run down some information now on the origination of that name. My mother was a Parrett and several of the folks on this community are from the same group of Parretts.
I'll keep the site posted with what I find out.

Jennifer I am interested in knowing some of the names of your family to help make a better match. I come from the Aflred F. Parrett family. They originated in NC and moved throught Tennessee into Kentucky and later to Ohio and probably Michigan. I know I have at least 3 1st cousins living in Michigan at this time. Please send me an email and we can discuss them and others if any of this matches your list or findings.

Julie, I have researched the Porrett/Parrett/Parrott families lines for a while and it is my finding that there are two or three separate and disctinct lines out there. One or two origninated in England and the other in France. Porrott is English, Parrott is English. Parrett is French.

I am not sure where you would find Porrott but my suggestion is to try the ships registries that came from England. They are on line if you can access them. I have had serious problems trying to access anything in

Thanks for the input! My mother-in-law's family still resides in England, so she is the first one of her line over here in the states. I'd love to hear more info on the English line if you have anything. My email is, thanks again, Julie

Hi, my name is Jim and I live on a small farm at Leeton, a rural town in NSW Australia. I have just started to research the Parrett line and have discovered that there is only 38 families of Parrett's living in Australia, some have been here for four or five generations, however I cant find any information on where they originated from.
There appears to be many of you in the US, can anyone give me some information on where the name may have originated from, I can trace some lineage to France and some to England but keep drawing blanks when I try to go any further.
I thought it ironic when I saw your name on this web page as my wife is aslo a Jennifer.
Hope someone can help and would like to hear from any Parrett's who care to drop a line to one of their ilk on the other side of the planet.
Cheers from Oz
