    (circa 1483-November 13, 1635)
    Born in Winnington, Shropshire, England, United Kingdom
    Allegedly died at age 152
    Buried in Westminster Abbey
    His year of birth is unverified.
    He may have used his grandfather’s baptismal records.
    He had a child out of wedlock at the alleged age of 100.
    Shortly after being presented at the royal court, he died from overindulging in rich food and wine.
    His recipe for a long life was ‘Keep your head cool by temperance and your feet warm by exercise. Rise early, go to bed soon, keep your eyes open and your mouth shut.’
    When King Charles I asked what he had done that was greater than any other man, he replied that he was the oldest man to perform penance for an affair.
    ‘Old Parr’ Scotch whiskey was named after him.
