Family History

The research into our family line takes us back to the late 16th century when Richard Rye was born; possibly in 1582. He had 4 children. These origins were in Kent and to some it is thought that the surname originated from Normandy. There is a village there named Ryes where Hubert de Ryes, a favourite of William the Conqueror, lived and it is thought that he, or his sons were rewarded with lands in England after the conquest. Our particular ancestor moved to Carlton-in-Lindrick, near Worksop, Notts around 1838.

The family has diverged widely since then and through the Internet we have now found distant relatives in the United States and Australia. Anyone interested in more specific details can contact us using our contact form.
