Joshua Parry had notable descendants. His eldest son, CALEB HILLIER PARRY ( 1755 - 1822 ), was a physician of great repute at Bath [he is repeatedly mentioned in Jane Austen 's letters]. Caleb was a distinguished physician on account of his work on angina , and on exophthalmic goitre (of which he provided the first description). He was a great friend of Edward Jenner .
The physician 's son, Sir WILLIAM EDWARD PARRY ( 1790 - 1855 ), F.R.S. , and rear-admiral , was a very famous Arctic explorer ; and the admiral 's son, EDWARD PARRY ( 1830 - 1890 ), became bishop-suffragan of Dover . The D.N.B. has articles on all three.
