I've certainly seen no evidence to support it. The name he used was Reve, which is a name found elsewhere in England at the time.
Blandford Forum was already a market town in the 15th C and returned 2 members of parliament. but Damory Court may have been quite small. The name Damory survives in the names of roads and most notably on the side of the local buses . There is an article and map herehttp://www.dorsetlife.co.uk/2009/10/damory-of-blandford/ .Shroton AKA Iwerne Courtney where Ranston is situated is a village and today a tiny place.

According to Childs, "Robert Ryves was a French Huguenot who emigrated to England in 1545 from Languedoc area of France and purchased Randleston (Ranston Castle) and 1600 acres of land in Dorsetshire, England. Three years later he purchased Damory Court. Both properties were near the village of Blandford in Dorset. His wife's name was Joan (SNU). They had one son (John) and two daughters."

Duplication extends to daughter Agnes who also has unsourced birth dates.(there aren't baptism records for these dates) The 'other' Agnes though has the correct children so there is one side of a family here and another one linked to the 'duplicate' . Merging brings two sides of the family together
birth date, I know of no sources for Robert's birthdate (no-one really knows where he came from before buying Randleston) He has to have been old enough to have a 20 year old grandson who inherited on 24 June 1556 (Hutchins ) Robert's, will confirms that John son of John will come of age at 20 1490 seems a reasonable estimate but he could have been born before that.
