From Reliques of the Rives:
Hutchins describes him as "of Childe Okeford" and gives his marriage to Edith, daughter of John Seymer, of Hanford, thus confusing him with his cousin, Richard, son of Richard Ryves. The records, however, are explicit. On Sept. 14, 1661, letters of administration were granted to "George Ryves, next of kin to Richard Ryves, late of Ranston, co. Dorset, deceased at Exeter, bachelor" (P. C. C. Admn. Act Book, 1661, fol. 91), the administrator being evidently his brother. Further, Richard Ryves, with whom he has been confused, made his will in 1630, describing himself as "of Childe Okeford," and mentioning his wife, Edith, and his "Cousin George Ryves of Ranston," that is to say, George Ryves.
