  • Notes 
    • Lt Samuel Rice King was born on 14 October 1667 at Marlborough, MA; under the name Rice.1,3,5 He was the son of Samuel Rice and Elizabeth King. Lt Samuel Rice King married Abigail Clapp, daughter of Ezra Clapp and Abigail Pond, on 30 October 1693 at Milton, MA; listed as Samuel of Sudbury and Abigail of Milton.1,2,3,6,7 Lt Samuel Rice King died on 4 March 1713 at Sudbury, MA.8,9,10
      He was also known as Samuel Rice.8,2,4 There is uncertainty about the parents of Sarah King (q.v.). LDS records list her parents both as Thomas King and Elizabeth Clapp of Charlemont (q.v.) and as Samuel Rice King and Abigail Clapp of Sudbury. The published vital records of Charlemont, Milton, Scituate, and Sudbury are silent about the birth of a Sarah King. The baptismal records for Sudbury begin in November 1706. We know from the published vital records of Milton and Sudbury that Samuel King alias Rice was married at Milton and lived at Sudbury. Based on proximity, Samuel and Abigail would seem more plausible than Thomas and Elizabeth to be Sarah King's parents. However, neither claim can be substantiated. Indeed, both Samuel and Abigail died rather suddenly in 1713, and their family dispersed. He was adopted when an infant, was given by his father to his "brother and sister King" for their own. His mother had died when he was about two weeks old. He was adopted by Peter King and Sarah (Rice) and known on Sudbury records as "Samuel King, alias Rice" Y-DBA tests in the year 2004 for descendants of Samuel Rice King prove that he was an Edmund Rice descendant.8
