The story of a Scots Italian family

QUILIETTI Guilo and Irene Park – connected lines

THE PARK LINE – Paternal lines

  • Have traced Irene’s Park line back to 1670 when Thomas Park was born in the area of Hutton in Berwickshire in the Borders. He had a son Alexander 1695-1748 who married in Hutton Church in Berwick on 24th May 1719 to Janet Turner.
  • Hutton Parish is situated in south east Berwickshire on the border with England. The Parishes of Chirnside and Foulden are to the north, the Parish of Mordington lies to the east, the english County of Northumberland is on the south and the the Parishes of  LadykirkWhitsome and Edrom all lie to the west.

The Park family enjoyed their life in this little town and we can trace George Park’s family with his wife Grace Watson throughout the years from 1841 to 1891.

The Dunn family connections. The Dunn line are all from Leith where they worked in the many factories and industries around at that time when Leith was booming. Irene’s mum was Christina Gordon Dunn Lowe 1900-1974 and she was given the names not only her mum and dad but also of her Great Grandmother Christina Gordon.
