This page is still being researched. It has NOT yet been launched formally into the Database but is shown here TEMPORARILY (albeit for an uncertain length of time pending further research), partly to record connections that we fear we might otherwise lose sight of and partly in the hope that one or more visitors to the site will contribute information that will enable us to develop our information on the families covered in this page to a standard that would support release of a dedicated page in the Database.

(1) The following family is often shown with its name as 'de Ripariis'. That was just the latinized version of the name which is given as Ryvers by Commoners, Rivers by TCP, and elsewhere as Revers or Reviers. TCP & Commoners both start with the following Richard of whom TCP reports: "His descent is unknown. Possibly he descended from the family of Reviers, Earls of Devon and lords of the Isle of Wight, in which the names Richard and Baldwin alternated for some generations."
(2) TCP & Commoners disagree on the pedigree of this family. We follow TCP but report what is shown by Commoners.
Richard de Rivers (d before 15.03.1221/2)
m1. ??
m2. (1200?) Joan de Port (dau of Adam de Port, widow of John Marshall)
1. John de Rivers of East Mersey
  TCP mentions this John (in a note) as "of Richard's family by his 2nd marriage". Commoners shows a John of this generation but as younger brother of Richard (son of Matilda/Maud) who, apart from being father of Lord John, was also father of Richard of Westhrop & Hampton, father of John & Richard( both dsp).
2.+ other issue?
Commoners mentions only 1 wife for Richard, Matilda d 1243, dau/coheir of Richard de Lucie of Dias). TCP identifies her as shown below.
m3. (1214) Maud de Beauchamp (dau of William de Beauchamp (by Maude, sister/coheir of Herbert de Lucy, grandson of Richard de Lucy, the Justiciar), widow of Geoffrey de Lascelles (son of Geoffrey de Cella, Seneschal of Poiitiers)
3. Sir Richard de Rivers of Ongar (d before 25.04.1243, eldest son of this marriage)

  We shall review this connection when we carry out our review of the Basset family.
  A. Sir John de Rivers of Ongar (b 1239-40, d before 01.04.1294)

  m(2). (by 1268) Maud (sister of John de Craye)
  i. John de Rivers, 1st Lord Rivers of Ongar (b by 1268, a 1321)
  Assuming that TCP is correct, Commoners appears to confuse the different generations of Johns, showing Lord John (d 1311-2) as father of John (d 1314-5) father of John (dsp 1358-9). BE1883 (Ripariis or De Rivers) starts with this John (d 1311), showing him as living in 1339 and father of Christiana (m. J. Bulkeley) and Edmund (father of Katherine who m1. William Lekhull, m2. John Hall).
