A Genealogical and Heraldic History of the Commoners of Great Britain and Ireland records Agnes Parr(e) as “daughter of William Parre, son of Sir Thomas Parre”; recent sources, however (including Stirnet), record Agnes as sister of Mabel (Maud) Parr (recorded in Generation 18 as wife of Humphrey Dacre) and, thus, daughter of Sir Thomas Parr(e) and Alice (de) Tunstall, of Kendal Castle. Two further sisters of Agnes -- Margaret, wife of Thomas Radclyffe and Elizabeth, wife of Sir Christopher (de) Moresby (Moriceby) – are recorded in Generation 20.

Agnes is the great-aunt of Catherine Parr (last of the six wives of Henry VIII), of whom Wikipedia writes: “(Catherine) Parr was not only related to (Catherine) Neville by blood, but also by marriage. Catherine's great-aunt, Agnes Parr married Sir Thomas Strickland, son of Sir Walter and Douce Crofte.”
