About Richard Rice, of Concord

Notes for Richard Rice:

His origin is unknown, however the presence of Edmund Rice of neighboring Sudbury might suggest a possible relationship. Richard is found first in Cambridge, MA in 1636 and then in Concord, MA in the same year. He is made a freeman in Concord on June 2, 1641. He left few records, he did, however, convey land to his son Peter in 1695 which he signed with his mark, while his wife Elizabeth signed her name. The births of only two of his children have yet to be found in records, it is probable though, that all of his children were born in America.

When Richard died in 1709 it is claimed that he was 100 years old, records in previous years give evidence that he was indeed 100 years old at his death.
