     Benjamin Rice was born on 8 March 1785 at Bennington, VT.1,2 He was the son of Silas Rice and Lucy Knapp.8 Benjamin Rice married Matilda Gaby, daughter of George W Gaby Sr and Esther Twitchell, on 19 April 1807 at Bennington, VT; Town Record, Bennington, VT: Name of Groom, Benjamin Rice; Name of Bride, Matilda Gaby; Residence of Groom, Bennington; Residence of Bride, Bennington; Name of Party Officiating, Jon'a Robinson, Justice of Peace; E A BOOTH, Town Clerk (Rice Gen'l Register indicates the date of marriage as 1 January 1807).9,2,3,4,6 Benjamin Rice died on 8 March 1853 at on the Rice farm, Enosburg Falls, VT; at age 69. The Historical Gazetteer has the following: "Benjamin Rice, from Bennington, came into town in 1806, and his family in 1808; he was 69 years old the day of his death."9,2,3,5,10,11 He was buried after 8 June 1863 at Old Congregational Churchyard, Enosburg Center, VT, their gravestones read: Benjamin Rice, Born March 8 1784, Died March 8 1853; His Wife Matilda Gaby, Born April 2 1786, Died June 8 1863. Also buried there in the row as follows: B.H.R; Persis G; T. Irish; John A; (Matilda); (Benj).2,10,11
     He was sworn a freeman of the town on 3 September 1805 at Bennington, VT.12
In 1805 he was given title to the land, and in March 1806 he set off on a good riding horse, his wardrobe rolled and strapped to the saddle, on the 130 mile journey to the north from Bennington. He had only an axe and a knife with him, and a little money with which he secured board and room with a family named Bogue, near Enosburg. He then began the hard labor of clearing some of his land to farm. He built a simple log cabin, interior boards fastened with wooden pegs, roof of poles covered with heavy slabs of bark tied down with withes (he had no shingles). He made sashes for the two windows (one at each end of the cabin), chimney and fireplace of stone. He made all household furniture (crude but functional): a bedstead, table, chairs and stools, pails and tubs. He cut and stacked firewood to dry (to be ready for their first winter). Nearby he built a small barn for the horse. Then, having prepared the homestead, he returned to Bennington, married Matilda, and worked to earn money to buy livestock.
In March 1808, he and Matilda journeyed to their new home at Enosburg, with their first child, Mary. They went in a sleigh drawn by a stout horse, traveling without benefit of roads. They lived in the crude cabin, later building a larger cabin, and in 1818 they built the great farmhouse.
The farm produced to meet their needs. Maple sugar was made each spring, and was a treat which the Vermont family shipped west and shared with three generations of Rices in Iowa, Nebraska, and Colorado.2 He was a farmer at Enosburg Falls, VT.2 He and Matilda Gaby were members of the Enosburg Congregational Church, Enosburg, VT. They raised a family who were all deeply committed to the church. Benjamin was a Deacon. He and Matilda and family began and ended each day with Bible reading and prayer. They were "Puritans" in the best sense of that tradition.2 Benjamin Rice was in the military in September 1814 at Plattsburg, NY, being a Vermont Volunteer, War of 1812 - 6 days service to Plattsburg, NY.13
At the age of 17 years, Benjamin hired out to Judge Robinson, living with and working for the Robinson family until he was 21 years old for which service he was to receive board and room, clothing, winter schooling, and at age 21, a 75 acre tract of land located in Enosburg, Vermont.
The record of the descendants of Benjamin Rice is based in large part on interviews with his descendants conducted by James Albert Rice during the years 1995 to 1999. These interviews provided many valuable personal recollections about members of the family. This record is much enriched by these recollections.
Descendants of Benjamin Rice are reminded that you should confirm your line of descendance with primary records such as birth, marriage, and death certificates. Personal recollections provide superb pointers about where and when to look for primary records. However, personal recollections are sometimes not accurate in detail.

Beriah Rice1,2


Learn more about Edmund Rice and these pages at our association home page.

     Beriah Rice was born on 20 August 1702 at Marlborough (Westborough), MA.3,4,2 He was the son of Thomas Rice and Anna Rice. Beriah Rice married Mary Goodenow, daughter of Samuel Goodenow and Sarah (?), on 6 January 1730/31 at Westborough, MA.5,2,6 Beriah Rice died before 27 June 1764. Your author speculates that Beriah may have been visiting son Stephen or Benjamin in Massachusetts when his will was written and at the time of his death.
Judge Savary presents the List of Names of Confirmation of the Township of Annapolis, dated October 30th, 1765. Both Beriah and Beriah, Junr are listed. Paul Haseltine is also listed although we have good evidence that by late 1765 Paul was founding a new town in what is now the state of Vermont. We may assume that the town fathers padded the list of names as Beriah Sr was dead and Paul Heseltine was living in Vermont by that time.7,8
     He and Mary Goodenow resided in February 1731 at Westborough, MA. Ward reports that Beriah Rice moved in 1748 to Annapolis, NS. We now know that the year was 1760.9 Beriah Rice left Boston on 23 May 1760 on the ship Charming Molly and arrived at Annapolis, Nova Scotia, on 25 June 1760. He had with him two oxen and two cows. The passenger list shows three Rice males: Benjamin, Stephen, and Beriah, but perhaps both Beriah and his namesake son, as well as the two other sons named on the list, all traveled together. Then again, perhaps only one Beriah (but which one?) went on this voyage.10 Beriah Rice left a will on 15 June 1763 at Worcester, MA, which was recorded 27 Jun 1764 at Annapolis Royal, Nova Scotia. The will cited his wife Marcy (sic), eldest son Judah, second son Asaph, third son Timothy, younger sons Beriah, Benjamin, Joseph, and Stephen, eldest daughter Marcy (sic) wife of Paul Hareltine (sic), second daughter Lucy, third daughter Rachael, and fourth daughter Sarah. Beriah left to his wife Marcy one half right to his farm "on the east side of the creek known as Bloody Bridge Creek (Annapolis, NS)..." for the space of six years "but at the expiration of said term the above mentioned half right (to the) farm shall be to son Timothy's hereafter ...". Beriah left the other half of his land and farm dwelling on the east side of Bloody Bridge Creek to his son Timothy. " I give and bequeath to my eldest daughter Mary, wife of Paul Haseltine, four pounds lawful money of the Province of the Massachusetts Bay."
     The will was written in Worcester (County?), MA and witnessed by Daniel Hardy, Abigail Adams, and Jonathan Bond and recorded by Francis Whipple, Justice of Peace. Your author notes that the names Adams, Bond, and Whipple are found nowhere in surviving records of Annapolis or Granville for the 1760s. Beriah Rice had close cousins by these names living at Westborough, MA at the time that the will was written. It is very likely that the will was written at Westborough, Worcester County, MA.7

Beriah Rice Jr1,2,3


Learn more about Edmund Rice and these pages at our association home page.

     Beriah Rice Jr was born on 16 August 1747 at Westborough, MA, (not found in the published records).3 He was baptized on 16 August 1747 at Sudbury, MA; not in the record of the First Parish Church, Sudbury (Rice Gen'l Register indicates date of baptism as 16 August 1746).1,2,4 He was the son of Beriah Rice and Mary Goodenow. Beriah Rice Jr married Meriam (?) circa 1770 at Annapolis County, NS; the marriage of Beriah Rice to Navine McQuillan, cited in the Rice Genealogical Register, is in error. In the past there was uncertainty about who was the first wife of Beriah (Jr). Recent research by Sherri Tomiak (2004) into the land records for Annapolis and Halifax counties record that Beriah Rice and Meriam Rice, his wife, signed land papers as early as January 1770 and as late as March 1783 as residents of Annapolis, as residents of Dartmouth between March 1787 and December 1789, and as residents of Halifax in February 1790. Based on these land records we can conclude that Beriah Rice's first wife was Meriam and that she was alive as late as 1790.2,5 Beriah Rice Jr married Catherine Owens circa 1798 at Nova Scotia; Your authors have concluded that the Rice Gen'l Register is unreliable in regard to Beriah's family. There seems to be no justification for asserting that he had a daughter Naomi, for example.6,7,2 Beriah Rice Jr married Catherine Ann (?) after 1801; Although there is uncertainty about whether Beriah had two or three wives, the 1818 census tells us that his last wife was the mother of Robert Muckford Rice and that her name was Catherine Ann. There is speculation that she was the daughter of Robert Mugford, who befriended Beriah, because Beriah named his son Robert Muckford. It is equally probable that Beriah named his son Robert Muckford Rice because of the senior Robert's kindness to Beriah. Therefore, your author does not give Catherine Ann the family name Muckford.8 Beriah Rice Jr died before 1818 at Baddeck, Victoria Co, NS; as his wife was listed as a widow in the 1818 census at Baddeck, Cape Breton.9
     He and Meriam (?) had 10 children.8 Beriah Rice Jr resided between 1760 and 1770 at Annapolis Royal, Annapolis Co, NS, M.10 He emigrated on 17 May 1760 from Boston, MA, the Rice Genealogical Register reports that Beriah Rice emigrated on the ship Charming Molly with 45 persons aboard. The record of that voyage has survived and names the three Rice men -- Benjamin, Stephen, and Beriah. The named Beriah may have been this Beriah or Beriah's father.2,11 He and Meriam (?) resided between 1770 and 1783 at Annapolis, Annapolis Co, NS.12 Beriah Rice Jr resided between 1792 and 1793 at McNabs Island, Halifax, Halifax Co, NS, where he was listed on the tax assessment record as a laborer.13
Some family historians have said that there were two Beriah's and some, three. Few documents of that time have survived. We are indebted to the late Dr Laurence Patterson, late Director Emeritus of the Edmund Rice (1638) Association, who discovered the following memorial, extracted from the Cape Breton Land Papers 1800-1808. This land paper provides very compelling evidence that there were only a Beriah Sr and Beriah Jr:
"The memorial of Beriah Rice, born in America humbly sheweth. That your Honor's memorialist hath been in the Province of Nova Scotia and this Island since the fourteenth year of his age ... that your memorialist has been a married man since the year 1775 - his first wife dieing after having a family of ten children - six of which are now living some with families and some singel (sic), that your memorialist is now married to a second wife - having now a family by her in three years, two children. The whole of your memorialist's offspring being bred to Industry in the farming line --- your memorialist hopes if encouraged by your Honor with a license of occupation for whatsoever quality of land your Honor may think (fitting for his) use by bringing his offspring together - hopes in the fiture (sic) that there may be a settlement of a little village of His own family.
"That your memorialist hath been for nearly two years living in a house of Robert Mugford, at Baddeck, in assisting him and adjoining to his premises hath in the course of these last two years cleared and cultivated about 7 or 8 acres which were never cleared, occupied, or possessed before ... ... Beriah Rice, Sydney C.B. October 30, 1801."
The Cape Breton Land Paper and the Parish Record of St George Church, Sydney, NS provide compelling evidence that Beriah's second wife in 1799 was Catherine Owens and that Beriah and Catherine had at least two children. One of their children was Catherine Rice, born before 18 September 1799.8,3,2 He and Catherine Owens resided on 30 October 1801 at Baddeck, Victoria Co, NS.8

     Caleb Rice was born on 24 August 1744 at Sturbridge, MA, (literally 1745, but that is apparently an error).5,1,2,3,4 He was the son of Rev. Caleb Rice and Priscilla Payson. Caleb Rice was christened on 26 August 1744 at Sturbridge, MA.5
     The Rice Family Supplement assigns this Caleb an alternate reference number (962a), evidently because of confusion over the mismatch between birth and baptism records. In addition, both the Supplement and Rice Genealogical Register say this Caleb married a Sarah, and the Rice Register, in particular, obviously confuses this Caleb with another (WRN 1381).3,2

     Charles Rice was born on 1 March 1730/31 at Westborough, MA.2 He was the son of Charles Rice and Rachel Wheeler. Leah Jennings married 1st Charles Rice on 6 January 1758 at Brookfield, MA, Charles of Westboro', Mass; Leah of Brookfield, Mass.1,3,4 He died circa 14 March 1758 at Brookfield, MA.5
     Charles was killed by Indians prior to 1758. Ward's The Rice Family indicates that he, living in Westboro', served for 6 months in John Toplin's (militia) company in 1755 and in 1757 with Captain Fay's (militia) company. It doesn't indicate whether Charles was killed by Indians while on active duty or during some other encounter. Evidently he and Leah Jennings were only married for 3 months before his death. His widow Leah settled his estate. Inventory £425 29 December 1758, one item of which included 100 acres of land in Brookfield, held by deed from his brother Elijah Rice, dated 16 February 1754.
In settlement of her administration account, 30 April 1761, Leah claimed "allowance for supporting Charles, the only child of her husband Charles, 3 years old the 7th of March last, being but one week old at the death of his father."5

     Cyprian Rice was born on 17 December 1691 at Marlborough, MA, (1693 per Ward).3,4 He was the son of Capt. Peter Rice and Rebecca Howe. Cyprian Rice married Lydia Rice, daughter of Benjamin Rice and Mary Rice, on 25 December 1721 at Marlborough, MA.3,5,2 Cyprian Rice died in November 1788 at Brookfield, MA; (not found in the published records).6 The estate was probated on 2 December 1788 at Worcester County, MA.7
     Ward subdivided this person into three supposed children of Peter Rice: twins Zipporah and Zephaniah, born on the correct date, and Cyprian, born a couple of years later. The 'twins' are apparently just mangled versions of the name in Cyprian's birth entry in the Marlborough vital records: 'Zipperan'. The name 'Zephaniah' was probably also partly due to confusion with a second cousin Zephaniah (WRN 306) who was born nine years later (also at Marlborough). He and Lydia Rice resided in 1722 at Brookfield, MA.6 Cyprian Rice left a will on 17 November 1785 at Brookfield, MA, the will mentions son Solomon; daughter Betty Bridges; and grandsons Moses Rice and Silas Bridges.7

Damaris Rice1,2

     Damaris Rice was born in 1761 at Rutland District (Barre), MA, (not found in the published records). She was the daughter of Ralph Rice and Sarah Sawyer. Damaris Rice married Benjamin Stuart, son of Joseph Stewart and Mary Snow, on 8 February 1787 at Barre, MA; listed as Benjamin of Leominster and Damaris of Barre.3,4,1,2 Damaris Rice died on 11 February 1841 at Sterling, MA; aged 79y,
under the name Stuart.5,6 She was buried at Chocksett Cemetery, Sterling, MA.5
     Her identification as the daughter of Ralph Rice is based on circumstantial evidence. In particular, she named one of her sons Ralph Rice Stuart. However, that happened after Ralph Rice had already married her husband's widowed mother, and so an alternate interpretation is possible. Another piece of evidence is the fact that John Rice (WRN 1732), a son of Ralph, was living with the Stuarts at the time of the 1850 census. Again, this fact is suggestive but not conclusive, since John could instead have lived with one of his own children. Finally, Abel Rice (WRN 1731), who is believed to be another son of Ralph, named one of his daughters Damaris. She was evidently living with her son Benjamin in 1840, according to the census tallies. Her son Benjamin Stuart was appointed administrator of her estate three
weeks after her death.7

However, the timing is wrong, since the Rice blacksmith was supposedly there from about 1750.6 He died without issue. His wife Mary settled his estate in 1791.5

     Deborah Rice was born on 22 May 1704 at Marlborough, MA.1,2,4,3 She was the daughter of Capt. Peter Rice and Rebecca Howe. Deborah Rice married James Brown on 26 January 1724/25 at Marlborough, MA.2,3 Deborah Rice died before 1746; as she was not mentioned in her father's will.1
     We have two records for two Deborah Rices both married a James Brown on 26 January 1725. Ward has one set of parents and Sup 1 has another set for Deborah. It is quite certain that the James Brown is the same person and that the ancestors of one Deborah Rice are in error. Unfortunately the Marlborough marriage record does not list Deborah's parents. And she died before either presumed father died so a will would be no help.

     Deborah Rice was born on 14 November 1697 at Marlborough, MA.1,3,2,4 She was the daughter of Daniel Rice and Bethia Ward. Deborah Rice married James Brown on 26 January 1724/25 at Marlborough, MA.1,3,2,5 Deborah Rice died on 1 December 1725 at Marlborough, MA.1,2,6
     There is a conflict in the marriage of Deborah Rice and James Brown. Ward lists Deborah's parents as Daniel Rice and Bethia Ward. Supplement 1 lists them as Peter Rice and Rebecca How. Since there is only one marriage record for one James Brown, only one of these descriptions can be correct. Regrettably, the Marlborough vital records do not include a death or marriage record for the second Deborah Rice. Further, Deborah (Rice) Brown died before either presumed father died, and so a will would be no help.

Dorcas Rice1,2,3


Learn more about Edmund Rice and these pages at our association home page.

     Dorcas Rice was born on 29 June 1664 at Sudbury, MA, (January per Ward).4,2,5 She was the daughter of Deacon Edward Rice and Agnes Bent. Dorcas Rice married Thomas Forbush, son of Daniel Forbush and Rebecca Perriman.1,2 Dorcas Rice died on 24 March 1753 at Westborough, MA; widow of Thomas.6
     There have been suggestions that Dorcas Rice first married a John Weldon or Walderne (see, for example, the LDS Ancestral File). Indeed, the marriage of a Dorcas Rice and John Walderne appears in the published vital records of Wenham, MA on 22 Sep 1680 (transcribed from the Essex County court records). The marriage is also entered in the Salem vital records, but with a date of 25 Sep 1679. Further, that marriage resulted in at least two children, sons Edward and Ebenezer, recorded at Wenham in 1686 and 1696, respectively. However, there is no evidence that the Wenham Dorcas is the same Dorcas shown here. Indeed, since Ebenezer Walderne was born at Wenham after our Dorcas had begun raising a family in Marlborough, we must conclude that they are different.7,8 She was dismissed from the Marlborough Church and admitted to the Westborough Church on 25 July 1725.9

     Ebenezer Rice was born on 6 November 1743 at Westborough, MA.4,1,2,3 He was the son of Ebenezer Rice and Anna Rice. Ebenezer Rice married Tabitha Balcom, daughter of Joseph Balcom and Deborah Boice, before 1770. Your author has searched in vain for the marriage of Ebenezer Rice and Tabitha Balcom in Sudbury, MA and surrounding communities and at Annapolis, NS. The Rice Genealogical Register and McCormick 1975 list their marriage year as 1778 which your author considers very unlikely.
The 1770 census for Annapolis lists Ebenezer Jnr (III) Rice with three in his household, two American and one Acadian. We can assume that he and Tabitha Balcom had been married for at least one year and had one child.
Note that Ebenezer Jnr (III) was not listed in the 1768 census but was a signer of the 30 October 1765 petition for the Grant of Confirmation of the Township of Annapolis (see Savary, p 105). It is possible that he returned to Massachusetts for a time between 1765 and 1770 and might even have married Tabitha in Massachusetts, so your author doesn't list Nova Scotia as their place of marriage.5,3,2 Ebenezer Rice died in 1795.6
     He resided after 1760 at Annapolis Royal, Annapolis Co, NS.7,8 He left a will on 2 September 1795 at Annapolis Royal, Annapolis Co, NS, listing his wife Tabitha and children Jonas, Levy(sic), Ann, and Sarah. This is our first indication that he had a daughter Sarah.6

     Ebenezer Rice was born on 12 March 1756 at Shrewsbury, MA.4,1,5,3 He was the son of Elijah Rice and Huldah Keyes. Ebenezer Rice married Sarah Tayntor, daughter of Deacon Benjamin Tayntor and Sarah Brigham, on 20 September 1780 at Princeton, MA.6,1,5,3 Ebenezer Rice married Ruth Eveleth, daughter of Joseph Eveleth and Patience Hunt, on 18 December 1791 at Hubbardston, MA; Ward describes Ruth Eveleth "of Stow". The published, condensed Hubbardston marriage record does not include Ruth's place of residence, and so the original must either state directly or imply she was of Hubbardston at that time.1,7,8 Ebenezer Rice died in June 1831 at Maury County, TN; the Rice Genealogical register indicates the date of death as October 1831 and the location as Hubbardston, in error.5,9 He was buried at Fountain Creek Baptist Church Cemetery, Culleoka, Maury Co, TN, born 11 March 1756 (sic), died June 1831.10
     He began military service on 23 July 1777; although some histories have ascribed Ebenezer Rice's Revolutionary War service to Vermont, that service belongs to another Ebenezer/Eber Rice. The Daughters of the American Revolution have accepted the record of Ebenezer Rice from Massachusetts that reads: "Rice, Ebenezer. Private, Capt. John Crawford's co., Col. James Convers's regt; enlisted July 23, 1777; discharged July 26, 1777; service, 4 days, at Rhode Island on an alarm; roll sworn to in Worcester Co; also, same co. and regt; enlisted Aug. 20, 1777; discharged Aug. 23, 1777; service, 5 days, including 2 days (40 miles) travel home; company marched on the alarm at Bennington of Aug. 20, 1777; roll sworn to in Worcester Co.11,10 He and Sarah Tayntor resided circa 1781 at Hubbardston, MA.1 Ebenezer Rice and Rolland Rice resided in 1802 at Maury County, TN, as Ebenezer and Roland Rice were signatories on a petition to the Tennessee General Assembly to establish a new county (now Maury County).10 Ebenezer Rice left a will on 21 January 1831 at Maury County, TN, which was recorded 6 October 1831. The will mentions wife Henrietta, son Ebenezer, daughter Sally Mayson(sic), son Abel, daughter Patsy Moore, son Joel, Sally Rice daughter of deceased son Rowan when she arrived to the age of eighteen, and Ebenezer Rice son of deceased son Rowan between age 19 and 21.

     Deacon Edmund Rice was born circa 1594 at England, as reported later in this account of Edmund Rice, no record of his birth or christening has been found.3 He married Thomasine Frost, daughter of Edward Frost and Thomasine Belgrave, on 15 October 1618 at Saint Marys Church, Bury Saint Edmunds, co Suffolk, England.2,4,5 Deacon Edmund Rice married Mercy (?) on 1 March 1655/56 at Sudbury, MA; (literally 1655) registered as Mary Brigham.2,6 Deacon Edmund Rice died on 3 May 1663 at Sudbury, MA; (not found in the published records).3,2 He was buried in May 1663 at Sudbury (Wayland), MA, The Marlborough vital records show that he was buried in Sudbury, but they do not indicate the location any more precisely than that. One possible site of the grave is marked by a monument designed by Arthur Wallace Rice of Boston, MA. It was dedicated by the Edmund Rice Association on 29 August 1914. A boulder with a bronze tablet was also erected by the Association and it marks Edmund's homestead on the Old Connecticut Path in Wayland.7,2
     He and Thomasine Frost resided in 1627 at Berkhamstead, Hertfordshire, England.8
In 1638 Edmund Rice acquired 4 acres in then Sudbury (now Wayland) and laid out in the fall of that year. He was one of the first to build in the area. According to Massachusetts Colonial Records, Volume 1, page 271, on 4 September 1639 Edmund Rice was one of the committee appointed by the Massachusetts General Court to lay out the land in Sudbury.
Edmund Rice's house was situated on the "Old North Street", near Mill brook. He received his proportion of "Meadowlands", which were divided "to the present inhabitants" under dates of 4 September 1639, 20 April, and 18 November 164-, his share being 42 1/2 acres. He shared in all the division of Uplands and Commons - the total number of acres which fell to his lot, as an original inhabitant, was 247.9,10

Deacon Edmund Rice was a Selectman in 1639, 1643, 1644 and subsequent years; a Deacon of the church in 1648, and, in 1656, one of the petitioners for a new plantation that became known as Marlborough at Sudbury, MA.11,12 He was a deputy to the General Court of the Massachusetts Bay Colony (the Massachusetts legislature) representing the Town of Sudbury, serving in 1640, 1652, 1653, and 1654.13 He was designated a Freeman on 13 May 1640 at Massachusetts.14,15 He was appointed by the General Court to decide small cases in the town of Sudbury in the years 1641, 1646, and 1648.16 He resided after 1656 at Marlborough, MA, lived on "The Great Road" on the northerly side of the pond (Cochituate Pond), not far from Williams Tavern. The pond is also spelled Wachittuate, Caochituet, Chochichawicke, Coijchawicke, Catchchauitt, Charchittawick, Katchetuit, Cochichawauke, or Cochichowicke.17
     Twice in the 20th century nationally recognized research genealogists have attempted to determine the parents and ancestors of Edmund Rice. Mary Lovering Holman described the negative result of her search for records in the parishes near Stanstead and Sudbury, Suffolk County, England in "English Notes on Edmund Rice", The American Genealogist, Volume 10 (1933/34), pp. 133 - 137. Mrs Holman is considered by many to be one of the best research genealogists in the 20th century. In 1997 the Edmund Rice (1638) Association commissioned Dr. Joanna Martin, a nationally recognized research genealogist who lives in Hitcham, Suffolk, England, only a few miles from Stanstead and Sudbury, to search again for records of Edmund Rice's parents. Dr. Martin reported in 1999 that she found no record that identified Edmund's parents or ancestral line.
     Several authors of published works and computer data sets have claimed names for Edmund Rice's parents. Regrettably they have not given sources that would assist in definitive genealogical research. For example, the Ancestral File and International Genealogical Index, two popular computer data sets widely distributed by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, offer parent candidates that include: Henry Rice and Margaret Baker, Henry Rice and Elizabeth Frost, Thomas Rice and Catherine Howard, and Thomas Rice and Elizabeth Frost.
     From Mrs. Holman's paper we have an excellent record of one Henry Rice's marriage to Elizabeth Frost in November 1605 at Stanstead. Mrs. Holman also documents the baptism of Edmund's first child on 23 August 1619 at Stanstead. If this is the Henry Rice and Elizabeth Frost to which the LDS records refer, the LDS records must be erroneous. Our researchers have not been able to find records that support any Henry Rice and Elizabeth Frost, Henry Rice and Margaret Baker, Thomas Rice and Catherine Howard, or Thomas Rice and Elizabeth Frost as parents of Edmund Rice.
     A scholarly investigation by Donald Lines Jacobus, considered by many as the dean of modern American genealogy, appeared in The American Genealogist, volume 11, (1936), pp. 14-21 and was reprinted in the fall of 1968 and the winter of 1998 issues of Newsletter of the Edmund Rice (1638) Association. Jacobus traced many of the false accounts to the book by Dr. Charles Elmer Rice entitled "By the Name of Rice", privately published by Dr. Rice at Alliance, Ohio in 1911.
     Sudbury, England includes three parishes, two of which do not have complete records for the years near 1594, which is Edmund's most likely birth year. Edmund Rice deposed in a court document on 3 April 1656 that he was about 62 years old. Thus, if he were born in Sudbury his records have been lost and we may never know his origin.
     In his address to the 1999 annual meeting of the Edmund Rice (1638) Association, Gary Boyd Roberts, Senior Researcher, New England Historic Genealogy Society, reviewed all of the genealogical sleuthing on Edmund's parentage. Mr. Roberts is well known for his research on royal lineage. He concluded that there was no evidence whatsoever that supports the published accounts of Edmund Rice's parents and no evidence that Edmund Rice was from a royal lineage.
     The Edmund Rice (1638) Association is very interested in proving the ancestry of Edmund Rice. The association encourages anyone who can identify a primary source that names Edmund and his parents to identify that source. Records of a baptism, estate probate, or land transaction naming Edmund and his parents are the most likely records to contain that proof. Until someone can cite such a record, the association must state emphatically that Edmund Rice's parents and ancestry are not known and that Edmund Rice's descendants can not claim royal ancestry.18,19,20

Deacon Edward Rice1,2


Learn more about Edmund Rice and these pages at our association home page.

     Deacon Edward Rice was born circa 1622, (1619 per Ward).3 He was the son of Deacon Edmund Rice and Thomasine Frost. Deacon Edward Rice was christened on 27 October 1622 at Stanstead, co Suffolk, England; 26th per TAG, 20th per Rice Gen'l Register, under the name Rise. The 1622 baptism record gives the child's name as Edmund, not Edward. Nonetheless, your authors are convinced that Edward was the child baptized (and of course born) that year, and that he exaggerated his age in later life.2,4,5 He married Agnes Bent, daughter of John Bent and Martha (?), circa 1647.3,2,6 Deacon Edward Rice died on 15 August 1712 at Marlborough, MA; at about age 93.3,7
     He received one lot in the Sudbury Two-Mile Grant in 1655.8 He resided in 1664 at Marlborough, MA, where he was a Deacon of the church.9 He declared age 47 in a paper filed in court on 2 October 1666 at Middlesex County Court, Cambridge, MA.10 He was assessed 8s 7d in the 1688 Marlborough tax roll.11 On 1 April 1686 at Sudbury, MA, Edward and Agnes Rice gave to their son Edmund Rice of Sudbury, half of the farm lying within the bounds of Sudbury, "near the spring". (Edward had purchased some of this land from his father Edmund and some of the land from his brother Benjamin. John Rice of Sudbury, a brother of Edmund, had the choice half.) Deed recorded 16 August 1734.3,12 He was elected deacon in 1687.13 In the year 1692 he was questioned in court - aged 70y.14 A 1712 obituary in the Boston News Letter gave the death year as 1711 and said he had been born in Berkhamstead in 1618. It also said he had 142 descendants at that time, of which 119 were living. It further said that Edward's brother Henry, who had died in Framingham in 1711, had a similarly large number of descendants.15

     Elisha Rice was born on 4 April 1756 at Westborough, MA, listed as Elijah, apparently in error.2,3 He was the son of Joseph Rice and Eunice Harrington.3 Marriage banns for Elisha Rice and Ruth Rice were published on 9 February 1782 at Westborough, MA; listed as Ruth of Northborough.2 Elisha Rice married Ruth Rice, daughter of Solomon Rice and Anna Rice, on 4 April 1782 at Northborough, MA; listed as Elisha of Westborough.4,1 Elisha Rice married Temperance Wyatt on 4 January 1785 at Westborough, MA; both of Westborough.2,5 Elisha Rice died in 1811; without issue.5
     Ward favors the identification of this Ruth Rice as WRN 1445, but admits some uncertainty.5 He was in the military circa 1776 serving in the Revolution and engaged in several sanguinary battles; in one of which he was wounded in the head, and from his shattered skull thirteen pieces of bone were extracted that are yet preserved as mementoes of his daring courage and of his suffering, and of the righteous cause in which he perilled his life. His revolutionary services, as summed up on the Military Roles, were "42 months, 5 days, in the Light Infantry." There is no monument at Westborough to mark the resting place of this brave man and patriot soldier; his services have been forgotten, the fruits of them are seen and enjoyed. He sleeps, unconscious of neglect and of the harvest reaped from labor in part by him bestowed; of the extent of his country, now teeming with eightfold millions, from the Atlantic to the Pacific, jealous of its rights, and, as in his day, vindicating them with success [WARD p. 232].5 He left a will on 7 January 1807, proved 2 July 1811.5

The Supplement and Rice Gen'l Register both mistakenly attribute this death to her husband Jonas.9,2,10
     She was also known as Elisha Rice; note that Ward gives only hearsay evidence about the name Elisha, which probably means he misread a handwritten note referring to 'Eliza.1'

     Rice Family - S2/P2 incorrectly describes John and Elizabeth Boyden's children as being born at Auburn, New York. They were probably born in an area that is now Auburn, Massachusetts.

     Ward includes a daughter of Ephraim and Thankful Rice with a death record of 5 November 1761. It is clear from the Brookfield vital records that this person is Thankful Walker Rice the wife of Ephraim and not Ephraim's daughter. This is compelling evidence that a daughter Thankful, born c 1760, did not exist. He left a will on 13 December 1796, proved 23 October 1810. The will mentions wife Eunice; sons Levi and Matthias; and daughters Thankful Smith and Zerviah Boyden.6

     Ephraim Rice was born on 14 March 1729 at Westborough, MA.4,1,2,3 He was the son of Perez Rice and Lydia (?). Ephraim Rice died before 1804; presumably, since his son Perez's will mentions his mother but not his father.2,5
     Note that no marriage or births of children for Ephraim are listed in the vital records of Hardwick or Sutton (or any other Massachusetts town, for that matter). Therefore, we do not show a marriage for Ephraim or a mother for his children. No marriage record has been found. He was in the military between 20 September 1756 and 5 December 1756 serving in the French and Indian War. With his cousin Oliver (son of Charles, his father's brother), he was a member of Capt. Mandell's company which marched from Hardwick, MA to Lake Champlain, probably crossing the Green Mountains in Vermont.2,6 Ephraim Rice was in a land transaction on 28 February 1761 at Hardwick, MA, selling 100 acres of land to Andrew Haskell. He had previously purchased the land from Aaron Thomas.6 He resided in 1765 at Hardwick, MA, listed as a grantee of Town of Somerset, VT (West Dover), but his sons cleared and settled the homestead.2 He resided He was among the original 62 proprietors of Somerset, VT, however, he never came to claim his land. Instead he traveled south, taking a heard of horses to South Carolina, and was never heard of again. It was assumed that he had been murdered during that trip. Ephraim's sons, Daniel, Simeon, and Perez went to Somerset, VT, to claim Ephraim's lands there. His son, John, and his family, also moved there.7,2

     Esther Rice was born on 29 December 1755 at Worcester (Auburn), MA.4,5,2,3 She was the daughter of Comfort Rice and Martha Morris.5 Esther Rice married Daniel Gale, son of Daniel Gale and Sarah (?); Daniel of Petersham (not found in the published records).5,2,3 Esther Rice died on 13 August 1848 at Petersham, MA; aged 92y 5m 27d (sic)
under the name Gale.6,1,2
     Congress passed a bill in 1838 to provide pensions to soldiers who served in the American Revolution. Esther Rice Gale, who was a widow by that time, applied to the government for her husband's pension. Following is an exact transcript of this application: "Commonwealth of Massachusetts, Worcester County. On this 19th day of October, 1838, personally appeared before Ira Barton, Esq. Judge of the Court of Probate in the County of Worcester, Esther Gale, a resident in Petersham in said county of Worcester, aged 82 years, who being first duly sworn according to law, doth on her oath make the following declaration in order to obtain the benefit of the provision made by the act of congress passed July 7, 1838 entitled 'an act granting half pay and pensions to certain widows.'
"That she is the widow of Daniel Gale, who was a private in the Massachusetts state troops in the war of the Revolution; that the said Daniel Gale performed services as aforesaid in three separate campaigns; in the first, he was in Capt Jonas Hubbard's company, in Col. Timothy Bigelow's regiment, but the names of his officers in the other two she does not recollect; nor does she recollect the length of time he was in the service. She further declares that the said Daniel Gale was placed upon the pension list roll of the Massachusetts agency under the Act of Congress of June 7, 1832 at the rate of $53.33 by the year for services performed by him as a soldier in the war of the Revolution. She refers to the declaration of the said Daniel Gale and the documentary evidence therewith furnished, now in the war office to prove his services.
"She further declares that she was married to the said Daniel Gale on the 23rd day of October in the year 1778; that her husband, the aforesaid Daniel Gale died on the 12th day of July in the year 1834; that she was not married to him prior to his leaving the service but the marriage took place previous to the first day of January 1794.
                         /s/ Esther X Gale
"Sworn to and subscribed on the day and year above written before: Ira Barton, Judge of the Court of Probate in the County of Worcester."

The following is an exact transcript presented to Jared Weed, Justice of the Peace, by Esther Rice Gale's sister, Mary Rice Bancroft.
"I, Mary Bancroft, of Auburn in the county of Worcester, and Commonwealth of Massachusetts, aged 77 years, testify and say that I am the sister of Esther Gale of Petersham in this county; that her maiden name was Esther Rice; that I was present at her marriage with Daniel Gale; that they were married by William Young, Esq., a justice of the peace at my father's house in that part of the town of Worcester, which was afterwards Ward and now Auburn; that the marriage took place in the autumn of 1778 but the day and month I do not recollect. I recollect that it was in the autumn of that year because after their marriage they resided at my father's till the winter of 1780, the year of the great snow when they removed to Warwick. I know it was in the winter or spring of that year because they were delayed some time by reason of the roads being blocked up by snow and I know it was less than two years after the marriage because my sister then had but two children who were twins."
                         /s/ Mary Bancroft

"Worcester, September 5, 1838, when personally appeared before me Mary Bancroft and made oath to the truth of the above affidavit by her subscribed and I certify that the said Mary Bancroft is a person of undoubted truth and veracity. /s/ Jared Weed, Justice of the Peace."7
