About D. Rice
MY DNA test results from23 and ME Test results of September 28, 2013 is Haplogroup I-1 with Origionation of the Patrilinial line in NORTHER FRANCE.
The most distant GRAND FATHER tested and confimed is JOHN RICE 1624 of DEDHAM Ma. born in EAST ANGLIA ENGLAND. also I-1, to Unknown Mother: and believed father Perrott ap RICE 1600 of TENBY WALES. Not proved is the affiliation of His mother Margaret MERCER RICE 1580 daughter of Wm. MERCER and a Female Berkley also unknown. THE father of Perrott ap RICE is also not proved but Oral History shows THAT John Parrott II son of SIR JOHN Perrott ca 1527 is the person for whom PERROTT ap RICE was named. There is no Paper trail at this point for the person John RICE 1624 of DEDHAM.
I Graduated with Baccalaurate Degree in Social Science/Corrections General Studies 1974 from Oregon College of Education now Western Oregon State University at Monmouth, Oregon. Formerly a Teacher's College or Normal School in the 1950's. Worked in Both Corrections for the State of Oregon 1974-1976 and for the city of Woodburn as Patrol Officer 3 years before assuming command as Chief of University Poliice in 1983. Divorced 1992 and returned to Oregon to work independently as a contractor, and then finally as a sales representative in the Manufactured Home Industry for Campbell Homes representing the Factory Homes of Liberty Homes of Indiana. Moved to California where I finished out my working career as both contractor in Home remodeling industries.
32 years after a quiet converstation with my Father, age 93 and living on my sister's Hazel nut estate in West Salem Oregon,I came across a copy of the Rice Coat of ARMS....The 3 ravens reminded me of Dad's comment that the RAVENS were a symbol of the Rices....Looking up the name Rice and ENgland I came across the Rhys anticedant name in Wales which lead me to Sir Rhys ap Thomas....That was 2010, and after 2.5 years of non stop research my Father's story of The Laundress and the King was found to be a true story, and the descendants of the story connect to my direct ancestors....We are perfectly Clear about the Present to 1624 and John Rice and Ann Hackly....That's been proved more or less....
The Real Story is Who is John Rice? My Father said that Perrott Rice got into financial difficulties and faked his own death, and left his wife with the children in Wales 1641, and started over in America....I have found that his son, also named JOHN RICE, likely emigrated with his father to Ma. where other family members had interests in Ma.
Perrott ap RICE aparantly moved on to Virginia where the Welsh had a strong footprint in various Plantations there. The story of TRADER JOHN REECE HUGHES picks up a similar character about this time in 1645 to my Aural HIstory GRandfater......Thus, I am on the hunt for Perrott Rice 1600 and his life in America, to connect to the John Rice in Dedham, Ma. b 1624 to 1630.
The Puritans of that era were not a forgiving bunch and did not allow outsiders in, so it is not clear How Perrott? Could make the transition from landed gentry to Puritan.....Alas, it seems Perrott being a slippery sort did not stay long in Ma. after having deliverd the boy JOHN Rice 1624-30. into the care of the ALLIN family. There would be no reason for a non relative age 12-16 to be in Framingham or Dedham, except that he has a family connection. He aparantly works for his future father in Law John? Hackley and Marries the native born Anne Hackly in September 27, 1649 after working the biblical 7 years is proof of his worth.....We do not know this for fact, but the behavior fits. The life of a 16 year old would have been more productive on a sea port city of Boston or New Amsterdam, but he moves inland to a PURITAN enclave....The only reason he could possibly have fit in was by recognition of the East ANGLIA, Sudburry Rices and he worked his way into the Puritan Community....
The blood father is believed to be Perrott ap Rice 1600 (The Geni linked 17the great Grandson of King JOHN LACKLAND) exactly as my father's testimony indicated. Or John Parratt II 1572, son of John Perrott 1625 and Syble Johns. We only have a partial ORAL history to go on and so we cannot claim any authentic Tudor Son of Son's connection. We simply do not know this to be so, but it makes sense from a human interest point of view as the CAREW CASTLE where John Perrott and son lived are not far from the Thomas ap RICE home near TENBY, WALES, and that's all we have is the behavior of a Man who allegedly faked his own death in WALES at the start of the English CIVIL war.
