      Was imported into the Colony of Maryland in 1655 by William Piper of the Isle of Kent. (Ref. Land Office, Annapolis, Maryland, Vol. 5, page 489.) Edward Parrish demanded land for performing his time of service in this Province, 50 acres, November 26, 1662. (Book 5, page 486, Land Office, Annapolis, Maryland.) On the same date, George Pascall demanded 50 acres in the name of his wife, Mandeley, for performing her time of service. This 50 acres was assigned to Edward Parrish. (Same reference.) This is the earliest record of Edward Parrish found in Maryland and this 100 acres, plus the additions to it, were called "Parrishes Park." The next acutal record is found in the archives of Maryland, Vol. 2, page 228, dated April-May, 1669, showing that 8,000 pounds of tobacco were ordered paid to Edward Parrish, John Thurston, Mathew Axton, Abram Duttenat. Every man was allowed 50 acres of land for himself or for anyone of age he transported into the Colony. They were called "headrights" and were granted to all free men, upon application. In this way, he acquired several hundred acres of land, He acquired land rapidly, making a practice of leasing it instead of working it himself and sold only one piece. Therefore, there was little chance for his wife to appear on the records. Parrishes Park, 100 acres located on the south side of West River at the head of Cuttle Creek, 1662/3 Clary's Hope, 100 acrees, 1663/4. Parrishes Delay, 100 acres in Herring Creek Swamp, 1664. Parrishes Choice, 150 acres surveyed March 18, 1670. Parrishes Chance, 1670. Locust Neck, 1671 Papa's Ridge, 155 acres on the south side of West River, 1673. Parrishes Range, about 2,000 acres in Baltimore County, Maryland, 1678. This land remained in the family for many generations. A part of Parrishes Range and part of Parrishes Fear are now included in the Druid Hill Park, owned by the City of Baltimore, Maryland. Died intestate in the early spring of 1680 at his home place in West River Hundred, on Herring Creek, about seven miles south of Annapolis, Anne Arundel County, Maryland. Buried with wife.
