PERKINS Family HistoryRecorded in the spellings of Parkins, Perkins, and the rare Purkins, this ancient surname is medieval English, but of Old French and ultimately Greek origins. It is a patronymic from the personal name 'Piers or Pierre' through the later Peter or Peterkin. Introduced into Britain at the Norman Invasion of 1066, and also by the Crusaders of the 12th century on their return from the Holy Land, it consists of the basic 'Per or Par' with the two additive diminutives, 'kin', indicating close relationship, such as son, or nephew, and the plural 's', a shortened form of 'son'. In its full length it is often recorded as 'Parkinson' and less so as 'Perkinson'...

The earliest Perkins I can find were living in Monktown, Ireland. My great, great grandfather Samuel Perkins left Dun Loaghaire as a sailor in 1852. He arrived in Australia at the time of the gold rush, married a Scotswoman and settled in Ballarat, Victoria, Australia.
Any Perkins from Hastings in Sussex.
