About Alice Rider
This is the end of the Rider line. No further record of his parents have been found.
William Rider married Alice England 7 Oct 1577 at Newport Pagnell, Buckinghamshire. Nothing is known of their parents. Alice may be the Alice Rydar buried 16 Dec 1593.
Samuel1 Rider of Yarmouth and Plymouth married Anne Gamlett (for references to her see Mayflower Descendant 11:49-51) who died in Plymouth, 14 Dec 1695. Samuel's parents were John Ryder and Helen Smith. Samuel's grandparents were William Rydar and Alice England, and a William, Richard, Robert or Thomas, may have been his great-grandfather, but this is still to be proved and a matter of conjecture.
Knight William Ryder in Dictionary of National Biography, 17:539-541 This is not the ancestor of the New England family. Sir William Ryder married Elizabeth Stone of Holme, Norfolk (daughter of Richard) and had children:
- Ferdinando d 1603
- Mary m Sir Thomas Lake

Earlier Riders in this area
The Lay Subsidy Rolls for Bucks 1524 and 1525,printed by the Bucks Record Society, mention Richard Rider of Marsh End, Newport Pagnell , assessed on goods worth £1 for 1524 and Robert Rider of the same for £1 in 1525. The index to deeds in the Bucks Archaeological Society's collection mentions John Ryder senior who witnessed a deed at Newport Paqnell in 1433 . No Riders were found in the Bucks Record Office . John Rider of 1433 was a substantial yeoman but the Richard and Robert of the Subsidy Rolls would seem to be smaller fry, perhaps laborers. The only will proved in the Bucks Archdeaconry Court under the Name of Rider is that of Francis is in 1637, not yet examined. He would seem to have been of higher social status than the other Riders of that date, since he was the only one mentioned in the Ship Money Papers. Since the family goes back to at least 1433, there may not be a close relationship between the Riders appearing on the registers from 1564. Francis may have returned to Newport to purchase property.
