  • Notes 
    • Samuel Rice was baptized on 12 November 1634 at Berkhamstead, co Hertfordshire, England.3,2,4 He was the son of Deacon Edmund Rice and Thomasine Frost. Samuel Rice married Elizabeth King, daughter of Deacon Thomas King and Anne Collins, on 8 November 1655 at Sudbury, MA.5,2,6 Samuel Rice married Mary Dix, daughter of Edward Dix and Jane Wilkerson, in September 1668 at Sudbury, MA; (not found in the published records).7,2 Samuel Rice married Sarah White, daughter of John White and Joane West, on 13 December 1676 at Concord, MA.2,8,9 Samuel Rice died on 25 February 1684/85 at Marlborough, MA; (literally 1684).10,11 He estate was probated on 7 April 1685 at Middlesex County, MA.7,12
      The births of all three children of Samuel and Mary Rice are also entered in the Marlborough vital records under Samuel and his first wife Elizabeth.11 Samuel Rice's second wife is entered in the Marlborough VR as having died 18 June 1678. Therefore, either that death date or this marriage date is undoubtedly wrong. Your authors believe the marriage date to be correct. He and Elizabeth King resided circa 1661 at Marlborough, MA.13 In testimony of court files at Cambridge, MA on 2 May 1666, Samuel Rice stated that he was 32 years old.5 Samuel Rice and Mary Dix retired during the King Phillip's War in 1675 at Concord, MA.14 Samuel Rice left a will on 10 February 1684 at Marlborough, MA,, mentioning wife Sarah; sons Joshua and Edmund; daughters Elizabeth Haynes, Hannah Hubbard, and Esther Hubbard; 'my son Samuel Rice, whom I have given to brother and sister King for their own'; sons Edward and Joseph; and two daughters Mary and Abigail Rice, under 18.
