Edward Parsley

Edward first appears in the Birchtown Muster as the head of a family group containing Jenny Tony and her daughters Judith and Patience as well as Molly Burges who is probably another daughter. Neither Judith, Patience or Edward are in the Book of Negros and we have no further information about them. Edward's relationship with the Tony/Burges group is uncertain.
