My maiden name is Parce and Parse is a variant spelling that I have run across a lot.The name Parce came from the surname Pearce which is actually Welsh but for all practical purposes it can be called Anglo-Saxon.My forefathers came here in the mid 1600's and have used Parce(Parse) off and on as they saw fit to help identify them from other Pearce's. The family came to a parting of the ways in the 1780's - 1790's when my ggg-grandather fell in love with a quaker girl which caused quite a rift in his Baptist family. So, he dropped the first e and said that way any Parce's he ran into would be blood relatives. The people that Soosie mentioned in North Carolina and Idaho are direct and indirect cousins(fourth cousins) of mine and we all come from this gentleman.There is a chance that you may be related. If you wish more information please contact me.There are so many variant spellings of the name that it is confusing.
