Robert Parker is chiefly remembered for his absorbing 'Memoirs', published in Dublin in 1746, which recount his long military career through the wars of William III and the Duke of Marlborough. Born in Ireland around 1666, the son of a Protestant settler, Parker ran away at the age of 17. He joined an independent company of foot quartered in his home town of Kilkenny, under the command of Captain Frederick Hamilton.
