William Parr, 1st Marquess of Northampton, 1st Earl of Essex and 1st Baron Parr. B. Aug. 14, 1513-D. Oct. 28, 1571. Brother of Queen consort, Catherine Parr, Edward VI.'s 'beloved uncle', and one of the most important men at Edward's court. Sentenced to death on 18 August 1553 after the accession of Mary I. He was, however, released in the autumn. His titles were restored to him by Elizabeth I. in 1559. Elizabeth paid for his funeral and burial.
Painted by Master John. There is now some dispute over this portrait; some people believe it is actually Katharine Parr, Henry VIII's sixth and last wife. The NPG in London has changed the title to Katharine Parr.
