"Edward Ryges and Elizabeth Holmes" were married on 16SEP1618 at All Saints Church, Nazeing, Essex, which is the adjacent parish to Roydon.

"Elizabeth Homes" had been baptised at All Saints, Nazeing, Essex on 13DEC1590 (21 months after Edward's baptism). Elizabeth's brothers were also baptised at the same church.

In common with a number of others in Nazeing, subsequently known as the Nazeing Christians,[S5] Edward and his family were Puritans. Early in 1633 they left England to sail to America as part of the Great Migration to New England, probably sailing from London, on either the 'William and Jane' or the 'Mary and Jane'.
