John Maynard Jr

DWS: from The New England Historical and Genealogical Register, 1847-1994 Vol 17 pg 170-172, 254-260, 311-315
Sudbury Records: births: "Mary, daughter of John & Mary Maynard, Jun., born 3 Aug 1656"
DWS: some researchers have placed Mary Rice as a widow of Thomas Axtell who then married John Maynard who had a son by prior marriage aged 16 named John Junior.
**************
DWS:According to James Savage in his 'Genealogical Dictionary of Early American Settlers', there were no less than four men scattered around eastern Mass. During the same time who were named John Maynard.

... (her first husband) died on March of 1646, leaving his wife Mary and three small children. Mary however did not remain a widow long for three months later on the 14th of June 1646 she married John Maynard who was a widower who resided in Sudbury with his son John Junior who was then about 16 years old.

John MAYNARD of Sudbury made his will on the 4th day of September, 1672 and died on the 10th day of December, 1672. It was probated on the 1st of April, 1673. In his will he made provisions for his wife MARY and no changes had been made pertaining to her at probate. So we know that Mary (___) Axtell Maynard was still alive in 1673.

Mary Rice

DWS Note Mary was a dau to Deacon Edmund Rice but it was believed she and her husband Thomas Axtell never came to America. The marriage and subsequent later travel and arrival in America to be with her parents is a THEORY ONLY.
***************
DWS: from ERA ...baptismal date is 18 Aug 1619 vs 23 Aug 1619 as had been reported earlier.
"Dr Robert V Rice, Dr Joanna Martin, During her examination of the Stanstead parish records pertaining to the Edmund Rice family, Dr Martin found that several of the dates did not agree with dates previously recorded in Edmund Rice (1638) Association records. Several were from The American Genealogist 1933-4, information that had been transcribed by other that the TAG author. Dr Martin had the dates from the TAG article and was able to confirm that her dates were the correct ones.

Mary Rice was baptized on 18 August 1619 at Stanstead, co Suffolk, England; ERA records had the date as 23 August, in error.1,2,3,4 She was the daughter of Deacon Edmund Rice and Thomasine Frost. Mary Rice died before 1638 at England; she is presumed to have died as we have no record of her in America.1,2
She was also known as Marie Ryce.5

The following is Marilyn (Axtell) Cheney's research on the maiden name of Thomas's (1-1) first wife.
A Myth Put To Rest

By Marilyn (Axtell) Cheney (1988)

I was lucky that by the time I was born my Axtell lineage had already been traced and published by several members of the family. For the past 7 years I have been wholeheartedly tracing the "ladies" of my direct line. For the better part of this time, I kept coming across the same conjectures over and over again. If only the researchers would put the known facts down they would see that what came up would straighten out the story.

Those researching the AXTELL, GOODENOW, MAYNARD, MOORE and STARR lineages will be especially interested in these facts since they may concern their ancestors. I will endeavor to show how I and other researchers have reached the conclusions now accepted and show that Mary (___) Axtell Maynard was NOT the daughter of Comfort Starr.

Thomas Axtell, son of William and his wife Thomasine (___) Axtell, was born circa 1618/19 in Berkhamstead, Hertfordshire, England and was baptized on the 26th day of January in 1619 in St. Peters Church, Berkhamstead. Although no marriage has been found as yet for Thomas, we estimate that he married Mary (___) about 1637/38 since their first child, Mary, was christened in Berkhamstead on the 15th day of October 1641.

In about 1642/43 Thomas, Mary and their two children embarked for Massachusetts, and upon arrival or shortly thereafter purchased five acres of land from Edmund Rice in Sudbury. On the 1st day of June 1644 their third and last child was born. She was named Lydia.

Hardship and exposure took their toll on Thomas and he died on March of 1646, leaving his wife Mary and three small children. Mary however did not remain a widow long for three months later on the 14th of June 1646 she married John Maynard who was a widower who resided in Sudbury with his son John Junior who was then about 16 years old.

While John and Mary were well on their way to having a family of their own, Mary's children by Thomas Axtell were becoming of age and starting to marry. The oldest daughter, Mary Axtell, married John Goodenow on the 19th day of September, 1656 in Sudbury, Henry, the only son and second child, married Hannah Merriam on the 14th day of June 1665 in Marlboro(ugh), and the last daughter, Lydia, married Joseph Moore. Since Lydia was but 2 years old at the time of her mother's marriage to John Maynard, he must have loved her dearly since in his WILL he referred to her as his DAUGHTER Lydia... when in fact she was the daughter of his wife and her first husband.

It has been conjectured that Mary (___) Axtell Maynard was the daughter of Comfort Starr of Duxbury, Mass. SHE WAS NOT!!!!! The following facts together with the above outline will serve to once and for all set the record straight.

FACT: Mary STARR was the wife of John Maynard of Duxbury, Mass., having married him in that place on the 16th day of May, 1640. Her father, Comfort Starr, died on the 2nd day of January, 1659. His will was probated on the 3rd of February, 1659 and in it he made bequests to the five children of his DECEASED daughter Maynard. Therefore we know that Mary (Starr) MAYNARD was dead by 1659!

FACT: John MAYNARD of Sudbury made his will on the 4th day of September, 1672 and died on the 10th day of December, 1672. It was probated on the 1st of April, 1673. In his will he made provisions for his wife MARY and no changes had been made pertaining to her at probate. So we know that Mary (___) Axtell Maynard was still alive in 1673.

FACT: this is a six year difference in the marriage dates of John and Mary (Starr) MAYNARD of Duxbury (16 May 1640) and that of John and Mary (___) Axtell MAYNARD of Sudbury (16 June 1646) which further bears out the fact that these were two different couples.

One cannot assume because of the closeness of names, dates and places that they could be or are the same people. Plus we must note that Mary (___) Axtell was still very much married to a very much alive Thomas Axtell and they were still living in England in 1640, when the Maynard-Starr marriage took place.

To those that would then conjecture that the two John Maynards were the same person and married to both the Mary's, one must consider that if he had married Mary Starr in 1640 she would have had to be deceased by 1646 when he married the Widow Axtell, they would have had 5 children over a six year period and even back then that would have been a bit much unless their were multiple births involved. The fact that John Maynard of Sudbury named his children in his will and all can be accounted for by his two marriages also dismisses that idea.

According to James Savage in his 'Genealogical Dictionary of Early American Settlers', there were no less than four men scattered around eastern Mass. During the same time who were named John Maynard.

I have presented the facts extracted from various records that show that it is highly unlikely that John Maynard of Sudbury and John Maynard of Duxbury were the same person. These same records show that it is physically impossible for Mary (___) Axtell Maynard and Mary (Starr) Maynard to be the same person. To those who would close their eyes and minds to the facts taken from printed records [and] seek only to put a name on a blank page not caring if it is right or wrong: Seeking out these facts will put another MYTH TO REST.

It has also been conjectured that Mary (___) Axtell Maynard's maiden name was Rice. To my knowledge this conjecture has never been proven or disproven satisfactorily.

I don't know how other researchers have arrived at their conclusions in regard to the RICE theory, but after researching the few known facts I have developed a possibility...but again this is only conjecture and if any researcher has printed records that prove or disprove the following theory I will be happy to see them so that another Myth can be Put To Rest....

FACT: Mary Rice, daughter of Edmund and Thomasine (Frost) Rice was baptized on the 23rd day of August 1619 in Stanstead, Suffolk, England. Most researchers list her as being unmarried when in actuality no record of a marriage has yet to be found. Therefore we cannot conjecture that she was unmarried. No record of a death has been found either for a Mary Rice.

FACT: Edmund Rice and his family moved to Berkhamstead, Hertfordshire, England by 1627. By 1639 they had left England and settled in Sudbury, Mass.

FACT: Thomas Axtell and his wife Mary and their two children left England and settled in Sudbury, Mass. by 1643. In October of that year Thomas purchased 5 acres of land from Edmund Rice, and after the death of Thomas in 1646, Edmund purchased back the land and the dwelling from Mary Axtell. Edmund also testified under oath that he heard Thomas Axtell say that "it was his desire that his wife Mary have all his estate in order to bring up his children."

Theory: The fact that Thomas' father William Axtell and Edmund Rice were neighbors with children the same age in Berkhamstead we can be sure that Thomas Axtell and Mary Rice were well acquainted and the possibility exists that they may have fallen in love. Since no marriage record has been found for either Thomas Axtell or Mary Rice, it is also possible that Thomas went with the Rice family to see them off at the Port of Embarkation and he and Mary decided there that they could not bear to part. They may have married at a local church in the Port village and then returned to Berkhamstead to start their lives together.

One researcher wrote in 1945 that "Thomas Axtell had followed his NEIGHBOR Edmund Rice to America." Might it be more likely that he would have followed his father-in-law rather than just a neighbor?

Please remember that the RICE/Axtell theory is just that, a theory. I have an open mind and welcome comments. Marilyn (Axtell) Cheney (1988)

Deacon Edward Rice1,2 (M)
b. c 1622, d. 15 Aug 1712
Reference=57
Deacon Edward Rice was born circa 1622; (1619 per Ward).3 He was the son of Deacon Edmund Rice and Thomasine Frost. Deacon Edward Rice was christened on 27 October 1622 at Stanstead, co Suffolk, England; 26th per TAG, 20th per Rice Gen'l Register, under the name Rise. The 1622 baptism record gives the child's name as Edmund, not Edward. Nonetheless, your authors are convinced that Edward was the child baptized (and of course born) that year, and that he exaggerated his age in later life.2,4,5 He married Agnes Bent, daughter of John Bent and Martha Blanchard, circa 1647.3,2,6 Deacon Edward Rice died on 15 August 1712 at Marlborough, MA; at about age 93.3,7
He received one lot in the Sudbury Two-Mile Grant in 1655.8 He resided in 1664 at Marlborough, MA, where he was a Deacon of the church.9 He declared age 47 in a paper filed in court on 2 October 1666 at Middlesex County Court, Cambridge, MA.10 He was assessed 8s 7d in the 1688 Marlborough tax roll.11 On 1 April 1686 at Sudbury, MA, Edward and Agnes Rice gave to their son Edmund Rice of Sudbury, half of the farm lying within the bounds of Sudbury, "near the spring". (Edward had purchased some of this land from his father Edmund and some of the land from his brother Benjamin. John Rice of Sudbury, a brother of Edmund, had the choice half.) Deed recorded 16 August 1734.3,12 He was elected deacon in 1687.13 In the year 1692 he was questioned in court - aged 70y.14 A 1712 obituary in the Boston News Letter gave the death year as 1711 and said he had been born in Berkhamstead in 1618. It also said he had 142 descendants at that time, of which 119 were living. It further said that Edward's brother Henry, who had died in Framingham in 1711, had a similarly large number of descendants.15

Agnes Bent was born on 12 December 1631 at Wayhill, Penton Grafton, co Southampshire, England.3,4,5 She was the daughter of John Bent and Martha Blanchard. Agnes Bent married Deacon Edward Rice, son of Deacon Edmund Rice and Thomasine Frost, circa 1647.1,2,6 Agnes Bent died on 4 June 1713 at Marlborough, MA; aged 83y, registered as Ann Rice.1,3,4

The will of John Bent of 1672 makes provision specifically for his daughter Agnes Rice and her son John Rice, which not only shows she was still living at that time, but also proves she was indeed the wife of Edward Rice (there being only one John Rice available as a grandson of John Bent). The confusion stems from the fact that the birth records of her children and the record of her death all show her name as Ann (a common variant of Agnes in her time). She was also known as Anna Bent. On 1 April 1686 at Sudbury, MA, Edward and Agnes Rice gave to their son Edmund Rice of Sudbury, half of the farm lying within the bounds of Sudbury, "near the spring". (Edward had purchased some of this land from his father Edmund and some of the land from his brother Benjamin. John Rice of Sudbury, a brother of Edmund, had the choice half.) Deed recorded 16 August 1734.1,7

"She was not Abigail Rice, [64.9] but Abigail Rice of another race; yet, as one or more of her chil. and several of those that descended from them intermarried with the descendants of Edmund Rice"...
and later "She was the daughter of Timothy Rice, (whose father Richard Rice of Cambridge and Concord, d. June 9th, 1709, aged 100 years,) and Abigail Marrett, who were m. 27th of April, 1687; b. Aug. 16, 1666, dau of John and Abigail (Richardson) Marrett of Cambridge"
her uncle Amos Marrett brother of teh wid, became guardian of her dau. Abigail Rice aged 12 years, Aug 26, 1701. (She would of been born thus abt 1689.)
***************
from George King at ERA website:
Abigail Rice1,2 (F)
b. 10 Mar 1673/74, d. a 1684
Abigail Rice was born on 10 March 1673/74 at Marlborough, MA; (literally 1673).3,4,2 She was the daughter of Samuel Rice and Mary Dix. Abigail Rice died after 1684.
Ward lists Palmer Goulding as spouse, but then goes on to explain that the Abigail Rice who married Goulding was a completely different person, the daughter of Timothy Rice of Concord (q.v.). It would appear that Ward initially believed that this Abigail was indeed the bride of Palmer Goulding but then found compelling contrary evidence. Regrettably, Ward does not describe the evidence.5

DWS agrees with Ward.
this marriage of Abigail [64.9] may be in error as she was 20 yrs older than the spouse Palmer Goulding?? per gravestones in Worcester, MA refr Ward book 1 pg 39-40
