Does anyone know if Tandy Rice was named after a mother's surname, or where the Tandy name came from?

He is the executor of Charles Rice in (Goochland VA 1777 - 1788 Probate Records ) an "Indenture made this nineteenth day of March in the Year of our Lord one
thousand seven hundred and eighty-seven between Mary Rice, wife of Charles
Rice, deceased of Goochland County and Tandy Rice, executor of Charles Rice,
deceased and heir of Fluvannah County and Sarah Rice, his wife, William Rice,
and Sarah, his wife of the County of Pittsylvania, Holman Rice and Jane, his
wife, of Louisa County and Basdel Rice of the County of Goochland of the one
part and George Sanders of the County of Fluvannah of the other part,
witnesseth that the said Mary Rice, Tandy Rice and Sarah, his wife, and
William Rice and Sarah, his wife, Holman Rice and Jane, his wife, and Basdel
Rice for and in the consideration of sixty-five pounds in hand paid by the

receipt whereof ___ the said Mary Rice, Tandy Rice and Sarah Rice, his wife,
William Rice and Sarah, his wife, Holman Rice and Jane his wife, and Basdel

Hello Robbin,

I am also interested in this line... as a possible lateral to my 3x married... Samuel {"R"] RICE ["Sr"] b. 10 Feb 1744 VA
d. 24 Dec 1813 LA
m.1st: Agnes MOSBEY [[MOSBY]... son, John Mosbey RICE
[d/o Hezekiah MOSBY]
m. 2nd: Susannah WATKINS...... no known issue
[parents unproven]
m. 3rd: Sarah STRATTON....son, Samuel Russell RICE
[d/o William STRATTON]

This RICE "trail" appears to go back to King Wm Co. VA... as well as Cumberland Co. VA and also goes forward into KY around the years 1779-1799... as a group of siblings made various migrations westward out of King Wm Co.

Please contact me off the RICE board for further discussion.

I suggest you go to and visit the Rice forum. You will find more people on that site working on the VA and East TN Rice lines, and some on Tandy, too. Be prepared to get caught up in the swirl over all the Isaac Rices in VA and East TN, I don't know how anyone will straighten them all out. Some will be working on the Tandy Rice son of Isaac Rice, but he is too late for your Tandy.

Type in Tandy in the "search this forum" box, and you will see lots of queries and responses. Or, type in 7415 in the box on the right side marked "jump to #" it will take you to a query and some responses that may help with your question. Or, you can post your own query and see what responses you receive.

Or, you can go to -- do a search for Tandy Rice, born in U.S., and #13 under Ancestral File shows marriage for Tandy. Click on pedigree and you will see submitter shows Ann Tandy married Wm Holman. And, of course, Tandy's mother was a Holman, so the name comes down through her Holman line. Click on sumbitter and I would contact that submitter and see what source he gives for his Tandy information. He certainly shows the Tandy surname going back in time, so he must have something.
Happy Hunting (^_^)

My name is Brian Rick. I am a descendant of John Moseby Rice. I would like to know if you could help me in anyway with my research. I believe he had a son named Elias Rice and am trying to prove this. Do you know if he had any
will or land records that would prove this. My Elias Rice was from Missouri and was married to a Mary Judy in St. Louis, Missouri. Your help is greatly
Thank you,
Brian Rick.

For all those trying to reach me... I changed my email addy:
FORMER email....
PRESENT... email....

In regards to the descendants for John M. RICE, I am informed that he didn't have a son named Elias... but I would like to see if we can help you to identify your fellow as he may still be connected to our RICE family... but in a way that none of knows at the moment.
