John Rivers 2010 California
Posted by: John Rivers (ID *****0887) Date: March 16, 2010 at 15:51:14
  of 1524

Hi. Just stumbled upon this forum while searching my descendants and wanted to introduce myself. My name is John Lewis Rivers Jr. My parents are both from South Carolina.

In 1994 my cousin did extensive research on our family name and compiled a 300+ page record of it. According to him, my first known ancestor was Richard Rivers but no dates were given. The second known ancestor was Sir John Rivers, mayor of London in 1565, and lord mayor on london in 1573.

Also to note was Captain John Rivers, son of Sir John Rivers, who sailed under Sir Francis Drake in 1586.

Anyway, if anyone needs any information about our families history, don't hesitate to contact me.
