About Thomas Henry Rice
Please note: Many secondary sources say he was the father of Deacon Edmund Rice. However, Edmund Rice's parents are unknown.
Several internet-based genealogical sources claim royal ancestry of Edmund and his descendants. These claims of royal ancestry with connection to Rhys ap Gruffydd (c 1508-1531) of Wales and his son William Rice (1522-1588) of Buckinghamshire are most certainly in error. All these claims of royal ancestry have been traced by Gary Boyd Roberts and others to a 1911 book By the Name of Rice written and self-published by Charles Elmer Rice of Alliance, Ohio. This book contains many errors and discrepancies and should not be relied upon as a genealogical source.
Also, please note that middle names were almost completely unknown at this place and time. This man was almost certainly named either Henry or Thomas, but not both.
