Biography

Tamazine Frost was baptized 11 August 1600 at Saint James Church, Stanstead, England, daughter of Edward Frost and Tamazine Belgrave.[1]

Also known as:

She married Deacon Edmund Rice on 15 October 1618 at St Mary's Church, Bury St. Edmunds, England. As late as 1627, they resided in 1627 at Berkhamstead, England.[5][6][7][8][9][10]

Likely of Puritan faith, being among those who fled religious persecution in England. They settled in Sudbury, Massachusetts. She died there on 13 June 1654.[11] where she was buried June 18, 1654.[12]

Note: Despite the presence of such in many locations (including here on WikiTree), the 1983 Edmund Rice (1638) Association publication "Supplement 2 part 1" says there is no proof that a son Edmund ever existed. An April 1714 Middlesex Co probate [citation?] gave the illusion of such a child, but subsequent research revealed this 1714 probate action was for son EDWARD. Somehow this probate involved the estate of the old man Edmund Rice Senior because essentially every one one his offspring had a descendant represented in that probate (see the Ward ca1857 Rice book, the very same book that created the false illusion of a son Edmund).

The Edmund Rice (1638) Association estimates that after 13 or 14 generations, descendants of Edmund Rice may be in the many hundreds of thousands to millions.
