Edward Rich

(circa 1590? - before 3 January 1638)
     Edward Rich was born circa 1590? In Penistone, Yorkshire. Probably the Edward, eldest son of Aymor, who was deceased with adult children when mentioned in Aymor's will of 1652.. He was the son of Amor Rich and Alice Burdett.
Edward Rich married Agnes Unknown before 1613. This marriage is based on her burial entry. There is no evidence that she is the mother of Edward's children, nor this Edward's wife.
Edward Rich was trustee to a marriage settlement between John Rich and Ellen Wilson dated 30 January 1618. Omnibus ... Richard Riche de Royd in parish of Penistone yeoman - in consideration of a marriage between John Riche my son & heir apparent & Helen Wilson one of the daughters of Christopher Wilson of Bromhead yeoman to be had & solemnized & in fulfilment of an engagement between me & sd Christopher Wilson - have given to Edward/Richard Riche of Mylne house and Richard Wilson of Oughtibridge hall yeo [as trustees] - my house at Thurleston - another house & barn there & all my houses & lands there - & the messuage in Thurlston Meer called Raynow - my close called Richston Carr in Thurlston - to hold to the purposes mentioned in said indenture.
     Edward died before 3 January 1638 in Thurlstone, Penistone, Yorkshire, England. This death seems more likely to relate to Edward, son of Richard of Royd, than to Edward son of Aymor who had issue.
This may be the Edward Rich of Thurleston whose estate was administered in 3 January 1637/8 by Richard Hatfield. Daniel's father Edward was mentioned late of Thurlstone in Aymor's will of 1652, but his son Daniel was only heir apparent which implies he hadn't died. Amor also had a son Daniel. The court cases imply he was alive after 1638..
     The administration of his estate was granted on 3 January 1637/38 at Doncaster. Same day and year in the said Diocese .... goods of Edward Rich late of Thurlston Meer diocese of York deceased to Richard Hatfield of the same place was sworn ...
Is this Edward with no known issue, son of Richard of Royd, or Edward of Millhouse, son of Amor who had died before 1652 leaving issue including Daniel.
     Edward Rich was mentioned as being deceased in the will of Amor Rich dated 18 July 1652. Edward Rich was mentioned in a deed dated 15 January 1667/68, Quitclaim I Daniel Rich of Thurlston, Penistone, heir apparent of Edward Rich, late of Milnhouse, yeoman, & David Rich, son & heir apparent of the said Daniel to Daniel Rich of Smallshaw, Penistone, yeoman (son of Emor Rich, late of Penistone, yeoman, deceased) Right to all messuages, buildings, lands etc. which the said Daniel Rich had by grant of the said Eamor Rich or by any other means in Penistone.
