Two years ago - see e.g. SHK 14.1250 with an eerie precursor at SHK 9.0496.

The most likely pronunciation is with a long "i": Rise-ly or Rysley.
The family's original name was "Writh" - but that probably had a long
"i" (Wrythe).

The sonnet speaks of the pursuit of lust in these terms; not its
fulfillment.
