Henry John Parr, a younger brother of the famous George, had a very brief career in County cricket, since he died in Radcliffe-on-Trent, his native village in April 1863 aged just 25.

He played for Nottinghamshire at Newark v England in 1856 and then a second time v Durham & Yorkshire at Stockton in 1858.

Parr also played in some All England matches as well as for Nottm Commercial and Radcliffe, but in no published games in the final four years of his short life.
