Acquired by Robert Ryves (ca. 1490-1551), they were permitted after more than two centuries to pass out of the family ; for the last of the Ryves' estate in Dorset, where the family had been seated for nine generations, was sold by this Thomas Ryves in 1781 (Hutchins).

He married 1st, Elizabeth, daughter and coheiress of Sir Anthony Thomas Abdy, Bart, of Felix Hall, Essex, died 29 January and was buried at Ewerne Courtney, 8 February 1755, aged 29,
