Other sources say Old Tom Parr had two children who died in infancy, existed and thrived on a diet of subrancid cheese and milk in every form, coarse and hard bread and small drink, generally sour whey. After the death of his first wife, he married the mother of his child at age 122. He was painted by Ruben and Van Dyke. Thomas was brought to London to meet Charles I who asked him what had he done greater than any other man, to which her replied that he performed penance to the church (for his affair) at age 100. His memorial records "Tom Parr of ye county of Shallop born 1483. He lived ye reigns of ten princes (Edward IV, Edward V, King Richard III,
Henry VII, Henry VIII, Queens Mary and Elizabeth, King James and King Charles I.)"
Other sources say that her husband Thomas FitzGerald, 11th Earl of Desmond (1454-1534), gave her as his second wife, a life tenancy in Inchiquin Castle in Munster. Eventually it passed into the hands of Sir Walter Raleigh who preserved her life interest. However, when the land fell into the hands of Sir Richard Boyles, he wanted to evict her. She went to Cork, sailed to Bristol, then walked to London pulling her invalid 90 year old daughter in a cart to solicit this relief in the court. It is said that she walked every week 4 or 5 miles to market and died when she fell from a tree where she was picking cherries. She married in the reign of Edward IV, lived the entire reigns of Edward V, Richard III (with whom she once danced), Henry VIII, Mary and Elizabeth, and died in the latter end of King James or the beginning of Charles I's.
*Though Matthew Henry thought this Psalm was written by Moses, Adam Clarke did not, in part due to the fact that other than those who died in the wilderness because of the hardness of their hearts, mankind lived longer at that time than the normal lifespan as described in the above verses.
