    1. [Parr] The Vanishing Parrs (UK 1901-1911)
    2. This is a Message Board Post that is gatewayed to this mailing list. Author: kg_parr Surnames: Parr, Tidy Classification: queries Message Board URL: http://boards.rootsweb.com/surnames.parr/1404/mb.ashx Message Board Post: I can find my grandfather, Thomas William Parr and his wife Edith Louise Tidy in the 1901 census. Their children (Arthur William, Ellen Jane, and "Dick") are also to be found in the same census. Mystery #1: I have a baptism for John Henry Thomas Parr as one of their children but he is not listed in the 1901 census, he was born in 1898 and should therefore be there (although he might have died young of course). OTOH I can find no trace of "Dick" anywhere except on that 1901 census. My current hypothesis, which I'm seeking to prove or disprove, is that "Dick" is actually JHT in disguise. Might anyone be able to help with this please? Mystery #2: I have been unable to find any records for any of the family apart from my father Arthur William, since the 1901 census. It's almost as if they have vanished in a puff of smoke. It could be that I am being blinded in my search by assumptions and I'd welcome evidence that anyone else might be able to find which might help.
