The Rice Family Tree


The Rice Written Family History


The Rice Family History I am indebted to Iris, Roy, Netty & Alan Rice and many others who helped me gather the following information. The history starts with George Rice born near Burtle, Somerset in 1813 who married Sarah Price from Sutton Mallet. George & Sarah had 7 children. Louisa (b1837). George (b1842). Albert (b1845). Janet Fear who lives at Blackford is a 5th generation descendant Jane (b1848). Samuel (b1850). John (b1853 d1919). John Rice was to become the Patriarch of Rice family and this history William (b1855). John Rice was a market gardener and the father of 11 children with 3 wives. The children by age are: George (b1879). Herb (Herbert) (b1880) Sam (Samuel) (b1881 d1968) Marie (b1883 d1885) Ada Leonora (b1885 d1956) Jack (John) Arthur (b1887 d1918) May (Mabel Elsie) (b1892 d1896) Bert (Albert) William (b1897 d1968) Ted (Edward) Charles (b1899 d1987) May (b1902 d2005) Reg (Reginald) (b1903 d1974)

John Rice was born in River Bridge Cottage, now pulled down, next to the River Brue Bridge, Mark Moor, Somerset. His neighbours were the rum Larder & Watts families. A plaque in the memory of Albert. E. Watts is fixed to the Bridge. He was murdered on the November 18th 1898 aged 33 leaving a wife and 5 children. The word in the surrounding area was that Albert was killed in a drunken brawl after coming out of the Black Bull Inn, run by George Rice and Sarah. The person who actually murdered Albert was well known with a violent reputation, so people were too scared to split on him in case of retribution. When John Rice was about 18, he had an argument with his family and moved to the Full Quart Inn, Hewish. There John met and married the barmaid Charlotte Payne (b1858 d1891) and they moved into a house behind a property called “Little Orchard” on the A370 at Hewish where he worked the land as a market gardener. John & Charlotte had 5 children here, George, Herb, Sam, Marie, & Ada. The family later moved to Apple Tree Farm, Ebdon Road, Worle where Jack (Arthur John) was born. Charlotte died young aged 32 of natural causes.

Radford. She is buried under the name of Alice Rice but there are no dates in the Church records about her. George was to be seen in Worle village in his polished knee length leather gaiters often carrying a 12 bore shot gun. There is no information about where he is buried although indications are it is Weston Cemetery. George and Lizzie had 4 children. Herbert, Winifred, Hilda & Arthur Rice. There is no information about Winifred, Hilda and Arthur. Herbert Rice (b1898) lived in a small cottage at 108 Kewstoke Road, about 500m past Worle Quarry towards Kewstoke. It is still there today and in the process of being renovated. Herb had 3 children, Jean, Joan & John. There is no information about Jean. Joan married a Hartrey whose family lived in a big house next to the Observatory on Worle Hill. Joan worked with June Hart in Trevor’s, a very posh women’s dress shop in Weston High Street.

In total John and Charlotte Rice had 6 children. They were:

John Rice worked at Puxton Railway Station and was killed in Italy in the 2nd World War.

George Rice(Sn) (b1878), John’s first child. George married Alice Elizabeth Hippsely in 1896. George was the gamekeeper at Woodspring Priory Estate and Lizzie as she was known, the cook. They lived in one of the estate cottages at the Priory. Later they moved to a cottage next to Gunnings Stores, Worle, called “Spinners” cottages. There Lizzie took in sewing and recycled old clothes due to rationing after the 2nd World War, whereas George spent a lot of time in the Kings Head Pub. Lizzie is buried in Worle Churchyard. Her grave is marked with a small marble flower holder, 36 paces in from the East gate next to the path, on the left hand side between the graves of Frederick Crease and Christopher

Herb Rice (b1880) John’s 2nd child served time in the Grenadier Guards and did duty at Buckingham Palace in his bearskin. Herb emigrated to America although his father did not want him to go. Herb married a lady who dealt in furs for a large department store in America and they had a son John. Herb and his wife parted and Herb met up with his partner Minn (Nena) who had relatives in Chard, Somerset. Herb & Minn would travel from Vancouver across Canada by train to New York where they would cross the Atlantic on the Queen Mary to Southampton. From Southampton they took a taxi to my grandparents, Sam & Maud cottage at Holly Bank, Worle and stayed 6 to 8 weeks at a time.


Since I lived next door to my grandparents Herb would tell me stories of his adventures in the New York police, bootlegging over the border to Canada and the gold rush. After the 2nd World War, Herb would send 2 tins of salmon each year to Maud Rice, Kate Rice & Mrs Burrows – a luxury food in those days. Mrs Burrows was the wife of Len (Harry) Burrows (b1906) who lived at 4 Sprakes Terrace, Station Road, Worle and worked in Fussell’s factory. Mrs Burrows nee Thomas might have been related to Blanche Thomas, John Rice’s 3rd and last wife. Herb had one son John, and he had 2 boys. Sam Rice (b1881 d1968) John’s 3rd child was my grandfather and a market gardener. He married Maud Burnell (b1885 d1968) from Milton Hill in 1906 and lived in the “Old House” at the junction of Ebdon Road and High Street, Worle, now known as the Rose Garden. With a growing family of 8 Sam bought 2 adjoining cottages in Hollow Lane, Worle for £200 in 1928, Holly Bank & South Bank. Sam & Maud lived at Holly Bank where Iris the 9th child was born soon after they moved in. My family, Wally (Walter) & Phyllis Richards, me and my sister Margaret lived in South Bank until 1962, when we moved to Locking Road. Sam & Maud had 9 children in all, 23 grandchildren and 54 great grandchildren. After Maud’s death Sam mourned for her and died within 6 weeks. Sam & Maud Rice’s 9 children by age and grandchildren are: Elsie (b1908 d1913) died at the age of 5 and buried against the east boundary wall at the bottom Worle Churchyard steps. Claire (Clara) (b1909 d1976) married Alfred Vardon (b1909 d1947). Alfred Vardon was the brother of Harry Vardon the famous golfer who won the American Open twice. Alfred was

a golf instructor and made professional golf clubs. They had 8 children. Nelson (b1926 d2007), Daphne (b1927), Sam (b1928), Molly (b1930), Joan (b1932), Colin (b1933), Connie (b1936 d2006) & Heather (b1937). Jack (b1910 d1990) married Win Richards (b1918 d1990) in 1936. Jack, Sam’s only son spent time in the army (The Lancers) as a young man and was in India and the Middle East. He volunteered for the British Expeditionary Force and went to France to help stop the German advance, but was pushed out of France at St Nazaire. He was then posted to Palestine. After his military service Jack worked for Stanley Stone, the Bristol Builders for many years and was involved in building the water tower at RAF Locking and actually ended his working life at RAF Locking. He married Winifred Richards who lived at 48, West Street, Banwell the sister of Wally Richards. She worked at Banwell Castle and later as a Senior Bat Woman at RAF Locking, supervising Bat Women, a posh military term for an officer’s housekeeper, not Bat Man’s partner. Jack ended his days at Nut Tree cottage built in 1836 at Ebdon near Wick St Lawrence. Jack & Win had 3 children. John Rice (b1937), Wally Rice (b1938) & Roy Rice (b1944). Nell (b1912 d1995) married George Martin (b1906 d1969) in 1934 in Scotland. George Martin, a Scotsman worked for British Rail for many years. They had 5 children. John (b1935 d2004), Henry (George) (b1936), Brian (b1938), Michael (b1942) & Sally (Janet) (b1943). Phyllis (b1915 d2010) married Wally Richards (b1914 d1999) in 1936.


Wally (Walter George) Richards was my father. He had many jobs during the depression and was sacked the day after his wedding in 1936 but ended up working for the Bristol Omnibus Company in Weston as a bus driver for 40 years. As a young girl Phyllis worked in what was called “service” (working for the gentry). Later she worked in a sweet shop in Regent Street, Weston where she saw the Grand Pier burn down for the first time and where she met my Dad who at the time was with his mate Roger Yarde both from Banwell. They had 2 children. Tony (b1943) & Margaret (b1945).

After his RAF service he worked in the Aeroplane Factory near Banwell as a draughtsman. He later moved to Somerton and worked for Westland’s in Yeovil. They had 2 children Raymond (b1941) and Linda (b1945). Hilda (b1926) married Arthur Prince. Arthur Prince was a milkman in Bristol who won the “Milkman of the Year” award. Arthur’s parents came from Birmingham. Hilda & Arthur lived at Headley Park, Bristol. They had 2 children Leslie & Clive. Clive the oldest child has worked in British Homes in Broadmead Bristol all his working live. Leslie is a builder.

Jack (Arthur John) Rice (b1887 d1918) (pictured right) was John’s 6th child and was born at Apple Tree Farm soon after John & Charlotte Rice moved there. Jack as he was known was killed in the 1st World War on 11th April 1918 aged 31, at Passchendaele. Featured right is a letter from the Grave Commission and a newspaper article about Passchendaele. Armistice Day was on the 11th hour of the 11th day on the 11th month 1918 (11/11/1918). My grandfather Sam Rice and his son Jack accompanied his brother Jack to Worle Railway Station to see him off and Jack told Sam he thought he wouldn’t return. His name is on a plaque at the Tyne Cot Memorial, Passchendaele. His name is also posted in Worle War Memorial in Worle, High Street. Jack married Kate Rice nee Hancock (b1884 d1965) in 1913. Kate is buried in Worle Churchyard between the War Memorial and the Church Tower. She is buried with her son Christopher and his wife Margaret. Ruby’s ashes were also buried in the same grave in 2010.

Jack & Kate had 3 children. Ruby (b1913 d2010) the 1st child was born at Church Villas in Lawrence Close, Worle. The cottage backs onto the Churchyard by the east gate. Ruby married Ted Timbury (b1905 d1994) in 1933 who she met while working at Fussell’s Rubber factory in Station Road, Worle. The Factory was built on the Old Worle, Gas Works Site next to the Weston to Clevedon Light Railway Line. Ted Timbury worked at Fussells for 52 years from 1927 to 1979. Ruby & Ted had 2 daughters. Jean (b1934) & Julie (b1952). Harry (b1914 d1975) the 2nd child married Alice Lumber and they had 2 children. Irene and Dennis (b1939 d1979). 


Chris (b1916 d1979) the 3rd child married Margaret Waldin (b1920 d1974) and they had a 1 son Michael (b1947).


After the death of his first wife Charlotte in 1891 aged 32 at Apple Tree Farm and the death of their daughter Marie aged 2. John Rice married his 2nd wife Susan Thomas (b1863 d1895) and moved from Apple Tree Farm with the remaining 5 children to the stone house at the junction of Cherrywood Road and the The Scaurs, Worle called “Lynch House”. There his 2nd wife Susan had a daughter, John’s 7th child, May (Mabel Elsie) (b1892 d1896) who burnt to death while filling a paraffin stove aged 4. John Rice found there wasn’t enough land at the Lynch so returned to Apple Tree Farm where his 2nd wife Susan Thomas died, aged 32, while shelling peas at the kitchen sink.

Ted (Edward Charles) Rice (b1899 d1987) John’s 9th child married Rosa Evelyn Lambert (b1902 d1984) in 1923 and lived at “Norton Court Farm” near Kewstoke. They had 3 daughters who are: Jean (Regina) (b1925) married John Huish. They had a son David (b1949) who married Elaine and live off Lawrence Road, Worle. They have 2 children Kevin and Amanda.

John Rice then married his 3rd wife in 1896, Rosezella Blanche Thomas (b1875 d1938) from Draycott. Blanche as she was known might have been the sister of Susan since they have the same surname. John & Blanche had 4 children at Apple Tree Farm who are:

May (Effie) Rice (b1902 d2005) John’s 10th child married Ted Coles. They had no children and lived at many addresses but ended up in Bramshill Drive, Worle. Her bungalow backed onto “Apple Tree Farm” which once formed part of Apple Tree Farm’s land.

Bert (Albert William) Rice (b1897 d1968) John’s 8th child was a market gardener but never married and lived at “Apple Tree Farm” all his life until he died. In the 1st World War he was gassed and buried alive. After the war he made a living selling vegetables in Weston from his horse and cart. His horse was named Dolly. There was the story that when my Dad borrowed the horse and cart to move furniture from Banwell to Worle in 1937, he had a terrible job to get the horse to go to Banwell as he constantly turned his head to go home. However when they eventually got to Banwell and loaded the cart the horse couldn’t get home fast enough and it was a white knuckle ride all the way back to Worle for my Mum and Dad.

Reg (Reginald) Rice (b1903 d1974) John’s 11th child lived at Moorland Farm Banwell (grid reference 395605) and married Alice White from Wick St Lawrence in 1926. Moorland Farm was the site of the Old Banwell Brick Works and the clay pits are now large ponds which can be seen clearly on the Ordnance Survey map of the area. After an accident Reg gave up farming and worked for British Rail based at Sandford Station, later becoming a travelling ticket collector. They had 2 children who are:

Audrey Tyson (b1927 d2006). There is no further information. Nena Wilson (b1933) lives in Lawrence Mews, Worle. Nena has 2 children, Stephen (b1952) & Judith (b1955).

Alan (b1928 d2011) married Lilian Parsons (b1927 d2009). They have one son, Peter (b1961). Alan worked on the buses and knew my father Wally Richards.


After a short time he joined British Rail and worked at Sandford Station like his father and later as a Signalman based at Worle junction. The Museum at Sandford Station, now an old people’s village has a picture of Alan on the wall. Alan continued to live at Moorland Farm breeding cattle and running a small holding until he took early retirement from the Railways in 1990. Alan & Lilian then moved to Balmoral Way, Worle but due to limited mobility and his wife’s death in 2009, Alan moved to Wincanton to be with his son Peter and his wife Sarah. Peter & Sarah have 2 daughters. Reg’s 2nd child, June (b1934) married Bill Andrews. June worked at St Martins School for many years. John & Blanche worked the land at Apple Tree Farm, keeping cows and pigs, sold milk and cream, made butter and slaughtered animals for meat. John Rice became ill with mouth cancer and died in 1919 at Apple Tree Farm aged 66. My grandmother Maud Rice helped Blanche nurse him until his death. John Rice is buried in an unmarked grave in Worle Churchyard, up against the Church Road boundary wall, 15 paces north from the War Memorial Spire between the graves of Captain Walter Battiscombe and Edith Batt. The Church does not have any records of this, although Iris Rice seems to think that’s where he was buried. His 3rd wife Blanche out lived John and died in 1938 aged 63. She is buried in the lower Churchyard Worle 63 paces from the bottom of the steps towards the village, on the left hand side, third row of graves back from the military head stone of J C Rains and left of Elsie Bourton.

John Rice’s Will shows he left a total of £203:3s:3d in 1919 or £300,000 at 2010 prices. Attached is a copy of the Will. This figure is based on Sam Rice buying 2 cottages in Hollow Lane for £200 in 1928 and assuming the 2 cottages would now be worth £150,000 each. Blanche got £5, the rest was divided between George, Herb, Sam, Ada, Jack, Bert, Ted, May & Reg. Each getting £22:11s:5d or £33,250 at 2010 prices. Since Jack (Arthur John) Rice was killed in the 1st World War his share of £22:11s:5d divided between Ruby, Harry & Chris who got about £11,000 each at 2010 prices.
