Henry John Parr, a younger brother of the famous George, who had a very brief career in County cricket, 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. Samuel Parr, another brother, also played cricket for Nottinghamshire and other teams of that era.

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