Parry

HCR diary 18.12.1820 at Aders "I went by particular desire to meet a Mr & Mrs Parry - He a wealthy merchant - she a fine and interesting woman - Aders' prints afforded us all entertainment"
                   21.12.1822 large party at Aders, Coleridge the star "The Parrys - I do not see why they were invited to meet C:"
                     13.2.1823 musical party at Aders  "Miss Flaxman & Miss Denman, the Parrys, Babingtons etc"
                     24.4.1823 re Mrs Aders history of 3 husbands "Mrs A: means to open herself to Mrs Parry, Miss Flaxman etc. etc"
                    14.4.1824 dined at Aders "Mr & Mrs Parry, Jameson and a number of Germans"
No clear identification yet of the Parrys. If they were old friends of Mrs Aders they may have been relations of the Parry who sent his poem on the battle of Trafalgar to John Raphael Smith in late 1805/early 1806 and who was "known" (or "nephew" - word hard to read) to Mrs Skepper (later Mrs Basil Montagu), see my Background Article "3 Wives, 3 Husbands Living". Since they don't seem to have featured in Robinson's diary after 1824 they may have been put off by Mrs Aders' confessions, or maybe like some of the possibles below, Mr Parry died soon after
