I was just watching the start of the FA Cup final and spotted a Parry in the line-up – Paul Parry, who plays for Cardiff City. You can read more about him on Wikipedia.
However, not particularly being a fan of football, I have decided to spend the afternoon exploring the Parry entries from the recent addition to the Origins site - Surrey Wills Abstracts 1470-1856. Because these are fully transcribed abstracts, it is possible to find entries where Parrys appear within the content of the Will, or as a witness, rather than just those Wills made by Parrys. This should be a great help in putting together family relationships – I have already spotted one for an Andrew Tremills (or Tremetts), who seems to be the father-in-law of a Whitney Parry who appears in the Parry Abstracts book.
Hopefully, I’ll be able to post some results later - along with an update on where things are at with the study, since it has been rather a long time since my last posting!
