Dates from Allis, Michael: "Parry's Creative Process". Jeremy Dibble, in his notes to the Hyperion recording of Parry violin sonatas, writes of the partita (unfortunately not included on the recording!) that it was premiered in 1886 - whether the premiere was earlier (than the December 1886 performance mentioned by Allis- who mentions a surprised comment by Parry on the positive reaction; Parry regarded it as a minor work undeserving of the attention, it seems) is not noted.
The first publication may have been by Laudy/Bosworth? (The Laudy/Bosworth edition can be found at a few libraries.)
