Daniel Parke (5 September 1664 – 7 December 1710) sat on the colonial Virginia Governor's Council from 1695 until 1697.
Having won the queen's favour, Parke was the British governor of the Leeward Islands from 1706 to 1710. He was disliked by his subjects, and was accused of corruption and immorality. On 7 December 1710, the citizens rebelled; Parke was dragged from his home in Antigua and murdered.
He was succeeded in the post of Governor by Walter Douglas.
