ii. Thomas Parker of Little Norton and Whitley d 1552
Collins identifies Thomas's wife as the daughter and heir of _ Parker of his own family by which is presumed he means she was a cousin. BLG1952 reports that he had two wives, firstly Elizabeth and secondly Agnes, having issue by both. It indicates that the eldest son of the 2nd marriage was Robert not mentioned by Collins who, being of Little Norton, we assume to have been his heir and so elder brother of William mentioned by Collins but not by BLG1952. From this we presume that Thomas's second wife was called Agnes Parker.

Collins identifies this George as father of William of Parwick. We follow BP1934, on the presumption that further research uncovered further information, and presume that Collins had confused this George with the above-mentioned George of Parwick.
