There is a group of Parrotts that traces back to a John Parrott, b 1792 in Tennessee. Although the paper trail ends there, DNA points to a relationship to other Parrotts/Perritts from South Carolina. The family lore is that the founding members were 4 brothers who came from France to fight in the Revolutionary War. While the descendants from 2 of the brothers are reasonably identified, the fate of the other two remains unknown. However, John's birthdate and DNA profile can be best explained if he was a son of one of the missing brothers. This information is provided to help others in their research on this family. However, many branches are still missing, and most of the information has not been verified, so use carefully!

    Parrott Family Settled at Soddy
    Saturday, March 04, 2006 - by John Wilson
    Information from Chattanoogan.com

    "John and Jane Layman Parrott were among the earliest settlers at Soddy, arriving in time to be included in the 1830 census. Three of their sons marched away to Kentucky to join the Union Army in the Civil War

    <deleted an incorrect paragraph saying this family was descended from Francis Parrott of North Carolina. It was not, as proven by DNA>

    A John Parrott from North Carolina fought on the Patriot side in the Revolution and was granted 640 acres of land for "84 months of service." John Parrott in December 1785 took up a 640-acre grant in the section of Greene County, Tenn., that became Jefferson County. That was on Clear Creek of the French Broad River. That John Parrott was a justice of the peace in Jefferson County. His neighbors there included the Ganns and Laymans who later moved with the Parrotts to Hamilton County. In the case of State vs. Elizabeth Gann in Jefferson County in 1816, Henry and John Parrott were called as witnesses. John Parrott sold 127 acres of his land to Isham Christian for $500 in 1796 - the year Tennessee became a state.

    On Feb. 25, 1862, George, Anderson and Monroe Parrott went to Harrison to enlist with Co. C of the Fifth Tennessee Infantry. They made their way to Barboursville, Ky. All three became ill and George Parrott died. He died June 2 at Barboursville at age 32. The widow, Elizabeth, was left with children William Monroe, Emily, Margaret and Thomas Andrew.

William Monroe died in Milam County in 1943 and Amanda Jane died in 1907. Their children were Jennie Emerline, Robert W., George W., Margaret Elizabeth, Amos Ervy, Charles Monroe, Eula May and Luther H. This family spells its name Pairett.
