English: habitational name from any of various places called Parkhurst, such as Parkhurst in Buxted (Sussex), which is recorded as Perkehurst in 1439, and Parkhurst in Abinger (Surrey), which is recorded as Parkherst in 1464. The placenames derive from Middle English park ‘park, enclosure’ (Old French parc) or parrok ‘enclosure, paddock’ (Old English pearroc) + hirste ‘hillock, copse’ (Old English hyrst).
