I know this man migrated from Languedoc to Dorset, England in 1545.  I am trying to zero in on where he may have come from.  I have discovered that Rives were living in Montaillou, a Cathar village destroyed in 1318 by the Catholic Inquisition.  I have also learned that there are many "Rives"  locations in both Languedoc of today as well as in Midi Pyrenees.  But I have no exact evidence to place Robert Ryves in a specific town or village before he himself went to England in the mid-16th century.
