View of Robert Parke Memorial ca. 1930. Robert Parke (1580-1664) was born in Preston, England. He sailed from Cowes on the brig ARABELLA on Mar. 29, 1630, arriving in Boston, MA on June 17, 1930. He later moved to Weathersfeld, CT in 1639, and to New London in 1649. Around 1655, he moved to Mystic, where he held one of the original land grants. He died and was probably buried in Wequetequock cemetery in 1664. Parke was a close friend of, and secretary to, Governor Winthrop of Massachusetts.
