Deacon James WOODS

This report includes only the first 6 generations of the Deacon Edmund RICE clan. A nine-generation version is available to members of the Edmund Rice (1638) Association. Learn more about Deacon Edmund RICE and these pages at our home page.



Deacon James WOODS [QQ1346] (Lydia3 RICE, Edward2, Edmund1) , born 30 Oct 1694 at Marlborough2 {6, 11},3 {p206}, son of Deacon John WOODS and Lydia RICE. He died 10 Apr 1772, aged 77y (87 per Ward manuscript) at Marlborough56,3,1 {p114}. He was buried at Marlborough, in Spring Hill Cemetery56. There is some controversy over the parentage of this James Woods. Ward (p. 114) gives his birth date as 1685 and his parents as Deacon James Woods and Hopestill Ward. The Rice Genealogical Register (p. 6) gives his birth date as 30 October 1694 and his parents as Deacon John Woods and Lydia Rice. Both of these are real persons, as confirmed by the vital records of Marlborough, but obviously only one can be this James. The issue is clouded by the fact that the editors of the published vital records included material from an unpublished manuscript by Ward himself and, in particular, specified the wrong age at death for this Deacon James Woods (i.e., 87 instead of 77). In fact, the age at death was not entered in the original vital records, but it is inscribed on the gravestone, still standing and clearly legible in the Springhill Cemetery in Marlborough. Besides the explicit age at death, we have additional evidence pointing to the 1694 James: Deacon James married his first wife Dorothy Barnes in 1718/9, when the 1685 James would have been unusually old for a first marriage (again, we can be sure it was Deacon James who married Dorothy, since his grave is right next to hers and to that of his second wife Hepzibah). We therefore must conclude that Ward was in error, and the Rice Genealogical Register was correct.1 {p114},2 {p6},3 {p206} He made a will 16 Sep 1769 at Marlborough, mentioning sons David, James, and Jonathan, all sons by deceased wife Dorothy; sons Moses and George; daughters Hepzibah Woods, Dorothy Rice, and Lucy Woods; Aaron Witt son of Sarah of Brookfield; son Moses to be Executor20 {docket 25449}.

He married first, Dorothy BARNES 19 Mar 1718/19 at Marlborough2 {6, 11},3 {p332}. She was born 24 Mar 1697/98 at Marlborough, registered as Doratie3,2 {p11},46 {1:18}, died 10 Nov 1734, aged 36y at Marlborough (under the name Woods)56,2 {p11},3 {p403}, was buried at Marlborough, in Spring Hill Cemetery56, daughter of Deacon John BARNES and Hannah HOWE.

He married second, Hephzibah EAGER 20 Jan 1735/36 at Marlborough2 {6, 11},3 {p332}. She was born 4 May 1702 at Marlborough3,2 {p11},46 {1:24}, died 31 Dec 1768, aged 66y at Marlborough (under the name Woods)56,1 {p114},2 {p11},3 {p403}, was buried at Marlborough, in Spring Hill Cemetery56, daughter of Zerubbabel EAGER and Hannah KERLEY.

John RICE

This report includes only the first 6 generations of the Deacon Edmund RICE clan. A nine-generation version is available to members of the Edmund Rice (1638) Association. Learn more about Deacon Edmund RICE and these pages at our home page.



John RICE [QQ2205, w155] (John3, Edward2, Edmund1) , born 29 Sep 1675 at Sudbury, MA1 {p17},11 {p121}, son of John RICE and Tabitha STONE. He died 28 Jul 1733 at Sudbury1 {p49},11 {p323}. John Rice represented the Town of Sudbury in the Massachusetts General Court (legislative assembly) at Boston, MA in 1715.1 {p49} Note that Ward mistakenly attributes the 1731 marriage of Sarah Dunton both to this John Rice and to another (WFN 123). Since the Sudbury vital records show a child was born to John and Sarah Rice in 1736, after the death of this John, it seems clear that the other attribution is the correct one.69 {p28},11,1 {49, 67}

He married first, Elizabeth CLAPP 13 Mar 1700, (May per Ward) at Sudbury, listed as Elizabeth of Milton1 {17, 49},45 {p7},11 {181, 259}. She was born 1 Oct 1682 at Dorchester, MA84 {p19},17 {1:389}, died 4 Dec 1705 at Sudbury, MA (under the name Rice)11,1 {p49}, daughter of Ezra CLAPP and Abigail POND. Her death is often listed erroneously as July 1716, apparently because of a garbled transmission of the (true) statement in the Clapp genealogy that she had died before July 1716 (when her father made his will).100 {p97} John RICE and Elizabeth CLAPP resided at Sudbury1 {p49}.

He married second, Sarah FROST about 1706 at Sudbury, (not found in the published records)1 {p49}. She died 9 Dec 1717 at Sudbury (under the name Rice)1 {p49},11 {p323}, daughter of Thomas FROST and Mary GIBBS. Your authors note that Sarah's parentage is doubtful. According to Savage, Thomas Frost's daughter Sarah was born to his second wife, after 1691.17 {2:212}
