Henry John Parr, a younger brother of the famous George, had a brief career in County cricket, and died in Radcliffe-on-Trent, his native village on 24 April 1863, aged just 25 (born 7 January 1838).

He first played for Nottinghamshire at Newark v the All England Eleven in 1856, scoring 9 and 5; brother George opened the batting, making 13 and 20.  Henry's two other First-Class games came in 1858, v Surrey at The Oval, when he made 8 and 13, and v Durham & Yorkshire at Stockton, when he made 8no in his only innings.  His modest First-Class record then was 55 runs @ 11.00, top score 13 and two ctches taken.

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

Samuel Parr, another brother, also played cricket for Nottinghamshire and other teams of that era.
