Thomas Parr

Thomas Parr, son of Henry Parr late of the County of Cork in the Kingdom of Ireland clerk deceased, apprenticed to Simon Nov, 9 September 1687. Free of the apprenticeship, 8 August 1694. Liveryman of the Goldsmiths Hall, October 1712.

His first mark is entered as a large worker, undated, probably April 1697 on the commencement of his registration. His address was Wood Street, London. His second mark was entered 19 August 1717 and his address was Cheapside, London.

He was a signatory as “working goldsmith” to the petition complaining of the competition of “necessitous strangers” (the Huguenot silversmiths), December 1711. He also signed against assaying work of foreigners not having served seven years apprenticeship, February 1716.

The baptism and/or burials of eight sons and daughters of Thomas and Sarah Parr are recorded in the registers of St Matthew, Friday Street, between 1703 and 1713 and two further sons at St Vedast, Foster Lane, 1716 and 1718.

Thomas Parr’s own burial, however, appears to be unrecorded in either of these registers. He had died by 20 June 1728 when his widow Sarah entered her mark.
