Sir Robert Parning (or Parving) (died 26 August 1343) was an English lawyer and administrator.

Life[edit]

The son of Robert Parning of Cumberland, he was five times knight of the shire in Parliament for his native Cumberland (1325, 1327, 1328, 1331 and 1332).

He became serjeant-at-law in 1329 and served as King's Serjeant from 1333 to 1339 and Chief Justice of the King's Bench from 1340 to 1341. He was Treasurer from January to October 1341 [1] and Chancellor from 1341 to 1343.[2] He was knighted in 1340.

Family[edit]

Parning was married to Isabel, but had no surviving sons. When he died in London in 1343 his inheritance was divided up between his two sisters.
