Here he left his wife, nine sons and three daughters and returned to England to receive a considerable estate which had been left to him, but returned no more.

  1. [S96] Paul E Rice Jr, Rice Family Ancestors & Descendants, Rice cannot prove this relationship (Matthew son-Thomas father) beyond a shadow of a doubt, but he is "confident" about it. "a letter from David Rice of Greenville, TN to granddaughter Lou Rice states that Thomas is his great grandfather. ..Thomas Rice left 9 sons and 2 daughters. My father told me the names of some of them. There was John, David, matthew, William,James and Benjamin"..

posting by Norma RIce Gertzman at RICE-L 9/1/1999
Thomas RIce...was English by birth but of Welsh extraction. His family in Wales bore coat-of-arms. Deeds in the Rice family are marked with their coat of arms. Shield divided quarterly, 1st per pale indented, 2nd lion rampant 3 and 4 are mutilated. In a deed of Rebecca Rice, the 3rd reveals a lion rampant. Creswt: crown surmounting a leopard's face (as in Burke). Motte: FIDES NON TIMET. At one time the widow of John Holt Rice (II) Anne Smith Morton owned a copy of the above-mentioned coat of arms. Another copy belonged to the widow of Izard Bacon Rice.

Pedigree

Last Edited 11 Apr 2004

Birth between 1765 and 1767  Benjamin Swinney was born between 1765 and 1767. 
  He was the son of Edmund Swinney
Marriage circa 1785  Benjamin Swinney married Elizabeth ? circa 1785.1 
Death 1823  Benjamin Swinney died in 1823 at Franklin County, VA.1 
Note   Why I think Benjamin is probably the son of Edmund: They both lived on Nicholas Creek in Franklin County, so they were bound to be relatives. Benjamin was born around 1765, according to his census age. Edmund was old enought to be exempt from tithe in 1796 in Prince Edward County, so he had to be considerably older than Benjamin. If not a father, he could have been an uncle. I have not been able to find any records linking them together except the proximity of their addresses. 
Note   Benjamin is listed as a minister in Wingfields list of Franklin Co ministers.2 
Fact 1 9 January 1805  On 9 January 1805, at Franklin County, VA,, Benjamin Sweeney bought from Richard Jones 77 acres on "branches of Nicholas Creek" adjoining Carter, Hale, Jesse Jones and Vest..3 
Census 1810  Benjamin Swinney appeared on the census of 1810 at Franklin County, VA, as follows: 02110-00110.4

[It is possible that the "1859" is a transcription error, since Sept 9, 1855 is the date of the other document. Also Nancy Gambill was 90 in the 1850 census of Ashe Co, NC, which would make it 1855 if she was 95.]
