Sarah Royce (Ahnentafel No:215 )
Also spelled Rice, Roice, Roys.
This Robert Royce is not to be confused with Robert Roice of Boston who had a wife Elizabeth and arrived in Boston in 1632. Therefore, this is not the Robert Roice who was disarmed for supporting Anne Hutchinson and Rev. John Wheelwright as is claimed by many genealogists.
Claims that Robert Royce was from Martock, Somersetshire, England and had a wife there whose maiden name was Sims has been disproved.
