Birth*1631Agnes Bent was born about 1631 in England.3
(Daughter) ImmigrationApril 1638At about 7 years of age, Agnes and her four young brothers sailed to New England with their parents from Southampton, England, in the latter part of April 1638 in the ship "Confidence" of London, the whole number of passengers, "greate and little," being 110 souls.2
Marriage*circa 1646She married Edward Rice, son of Edmund Rice and Thomasine Frost, circa 1646 in Sudbury, Massachusetts Bay Colony.1,4
Name VariationIn the History of Framingham, published in 1847, the author wrote that the children of Edward Rice were by a second wife, Anne, and that statement has been copied by other historians. It's not true, however, according to the Bent Family source, for John Bent, in his will dated in 1672, makes a bequest to his daughter Agnes Rice. He goes on to explain that (1) the name Agnes in the old records, particularly in the Bent family, was spelled Annis and sometimes abbreviated to Ann and (2) the Rices were both numerous and prominent in Sudbury and Marlborough, Massachusetts and intermarried with the Bents more than a dozen times.3,5,6
(Wife) Death16 August 1712Agnes became a widow when Edward Rice died on 16 August 1712.3
Death*4 June 1713She died ten months after her husband on 4 June 1713 in Marlborough, Middlesex County, in her 83rd year.3
