Parry, Edward, ‘The Revd John Parker: ‘a warm partizan of Gothic art”, Transactions of the Ancient Monuments Society, vol. 64, (2020), pp. 90-114

Edgar W Parry, Rev John Parker’s Tour of Wales and its Churches, (Gwasg Carreg Gwalch, Llanwrst, 1998).

John Parker was second son of Thomas Netherton Parker of Sweeney Hall, near Oswestry. His sister was Lady Leighton, an exceptional artist.  He was educated at Eaton and Oxford (graduated B.A. 1820; M.A. 1825). He was curate of a chapel in Shropshire; Rector of Llannerewig [Llanmyrewig], near Newtown, Montgomeryshire from 1827 and lived at Pennarth, a farmhouse in the parish. He was Vicar of Llanyblodwel from 1844.

He was passionate about Gothic architecture and had an interest in botany.

Comments on his tours and archives

Parker made at least 31 tours through Wales between 1819 and 1851. Some of these were very brief, no more than a day or two, to visit churches; others lasted much longer – a week or two, and on one occasion, 24 days. In addition, he toured Cumberland, Westmorland and Lancashire in 1825; Ireland in 1826; the continent in 1827; York, probably in 1828; Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, France in 1829; Scotland in 1830; Leamington, etc in 1838; the Midlands in 1851 and London in 1857. He died shortly after his final tour of Wales, with his sister, in 1860.

It is quite possible that there were other tours, but if he kept records of these, their location is unknown.

Parker was exceptional because he knew many of the places he visited; he toured frequently; he was prepared to go off the beaten track, often on his own, and he knew the Welsh names of many of the remote places; he was a competent artist and wrote about the views he selected to draw; he was interested in botany, and recorded some of the plants he saw (frequently using Latin names) and he developed an interest in church architecture, especially the gothic, and made many trips to see chancel screens in both Wales and England.

It wasn’t unusual for him to go on a long walk, and stay at a place sketching until late in the evening, returning home in the dark, even in mid-summer.

Many of his trips were to places in Radnorshire, within a short distance of is home, to an area which, as he said was ‘seldom visited by the regular tourist’.

He occasionally travelled on his own gig, with a servant; sometimes by horse, and sometimes took a public coach (mail or otherwise) for short distances, if there was room in or on them. He often recorded the times of departure and arrival and some of the detail he recorded about this provides a good indication of the system of public coach travel in Wales at the time.

His records appear to be more of a personal diary than one intended for publication, despite containing various annotations, (deletions and improvements). It contains, like many other accounts of tours, details which would be of little interest to his contemporaries (such as what he had for dinner but which are of great interest to present day readers). It is likely to be of great interest when read in conjunction with a study of his surviving images.

Several of the accounts stop suddenly and with no explanation, but some of these might be a result of him simply not recording the last part of the journey home. When he travelled to St David’s in 1836 his itinerary showed that he continued along the west coast to Aberystwyth then inland to Newtown, but his account ends at St David’s. Frustratingly, when he visited Aberystwyth again in 1840, he didn’t describe the interior of St Padarn’s, Llanbadarn Fawr, because he had done so previously, presumably in 1836.

Drawing volumes NLW Drawing volumes 327 – 350

Parker was a gifted artist, and his many drawings and paintings are unusual in many respects. They include many details of Gothic architecture, designed by him and of standing examples in Britain and elsewhere; the churches at which he worked and those he designed; Snowdon landscapes and details of plants in Snowdonia.

Church architecture

He visited many churches and had strong views on their state, and found most either neglected or badly modernised. At Llanfair Clydogau in 1836 he wondered whether neglect was better than modernisation. He began to ‘respect and esteem that very negligence … the word modern so frequently means vulgar.’ He was clearly a great fan of Gothic architecture and was particularly interested in chancel screens (rood screens).

Surprisingly, considering the poor state of the churches he saw, many were locked and if he saw nothing of interest through the windows, he didn’t bother to get the key.

Bishop Luxmoore (Parker consistently spelled the name Luxemoore)

During his 1819 trip to Wales, as an Oxford student, he was accompanied for a few days by Luxmoore who may well have been a school or college friend. It seems likely that this was John Luxmoore (1756-1830), Bishop of St Asaph or a close relation of his.

He met Corry Luxemoore [Luxmoore], his wife, mother and two sisters in the inn and the Newcomes at Capel Curig Inn on the 21st August, 1822. Mr Newcome (whom he met at St Asaph in September 1832) was the warden at St Asaph and they probably knew each other because Parker served in the St Asaph diocese (when?).

He met Bishop Luxmoore at Llanrwst on 20.8.1828 where Luxmoore was conducting a confirmation service. This annoyed Parker since it held up his work on examining the chancel screen there, but he did have a word with the bishop who remembered him.

On the 12th September 1832 Parker visited St Asaph, partly to plead with the new bishop for a curate. He ‘examined the gothic monument, now building, by his family to the late Bishop Luxmoore. It was designed by T Jones of Chester.’   On the same day he complained ‘In one room [of the deanery at St Asaph] was the portrait of the late Bishop, who, had he lived, might perhaps have done something for me; but his giving me my present living was a gift that I would rather not have accepted.’ explaining that it was a popish living – meaning that he was restricted from marrying.

The Passengers (Travels through Wales) (London, 1831)

His only know published work consists of a dialogue between three gentlemen, referred to as Allansley, Clanvoy and Larndon on a tour in North Wales. Also a poem called the Celtic annals … in illustration of an argument incidental to the subject, and as a specimen of Greek versification in the English language.

Clanvoy is almost certainly Parker. Sometimes the conversation is broken by an explanatory narrative

[He mentions  the date of 1827 when the planks were set upright in the cairn at the top of Snowdon and the death of Lady Eleanor Butler (who died 2.6.1829), i.e. he must have written this shortly between 1827 and 1829 (first published at least in part, in The Cambrian Quarterly Magazine and Celtic repertory, vol. I, 1829, part 1, pp. 192-210; part 2 pp. 333-352 ; part 3 pp. 467-485; The Passengers, vol. 2, pp. 65-84 (Ascent up Snowdon)]
