From Reliques of the Rives:
There was another family of Ryves in England which descended from John Ryves, of Barton Stacy, co. Hampshire, who apparently was originally of Dorset and may very probably have been a brother of Robert Ryves (ca. 1490-1551), of Dorset.
In the British Museum there is a pedigree of this family (Harleian Mss. vol. 581, 2 22, fol. 169) endorsed, "to Mr. Nicholas his man named Parny in Mr. Eveling's office in the chancery the whole descent of Rives of Dorset & Hampshire." To this pedigree I have made some additions from original and published sources of information.

John Ryves was a (Fee) Farmer of Bransbury & Collector of rents at Barton Stacey (in 1555). Will proved 7th November 1558.

Research notes

Childs suggests that this John Ryves may have been the brother of Robert Ryves. This is unlikely although John may have been Robert's nephew. John's father (also John) would be a far more likely candidate to have been Robert's sibling.
