Summary of contents
Hester White PARRIS of Westfield Marden Ash, Parish of High Ongar Essex.
Robert PARRIS (deceased) of 61 Kennington Road, Lambeth, Surrey.
John Edden PARRIS of Mount Bures, Essex.

This is a Statutory Declaration made by Hester Parris concerning the family of Robert Parris (her brother). Apparently this was made in connection with the latter's Will.

It gives detail of the marriage of John Edden Parris to Isabella Elliston (who are the parents of Robert Parris) and of the baptism of their 7 children, John, Edward, Isabella, Hester, Robert, George and Mary. It also gives details of the marriage and children of George Parris.

The document is labelled "Copy" on the cover, and does not have the signature of Hester Parris, but from the watermark in the paper it seems very probable that the copy is contemporary with the original.
