Excerpt from Descendants of Benjamin Rice, of Conway, Mass Our first ancestor in this country was Edmund 'rice, who came from England in the year 1638 or 39, and settled at Sud bury, Mass. He was born about 1594, according to a deposition of his on the court files at Cambridge, Mass, which states that he was 62 years old on April 3, 1656. No one has yet been able to get the slightest trace of his parents, or of his ancestors, or where he lived prior to his coming to Berkhamsted, England. He was living in that town from 1628 to 1638, as the following letter shows. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
