Bolling (Rolfe), Jane

Jane Rolfe's grave site at Kippax Plantation.

Jane Rolfe (October 10, 1650 - 1676) was the granddaughter of Pocahontas and English colonist John Rolfe, who was credited with introducing a strain of tobacco for export by the struggling Virginia Colony.

Rolfe was born in Varina, Henrico County, Virginia on October 10, 1650 to Thomas Rolfe and his wife, Jane Poythress. She grew up on a plantation in Virginia and married in around 1674. Their son was born on January 27, 1676, and Rolfe died shortly after within the year.

She was buried near her father in the Kippax Plantation, but her birth year was never engraved on her headstone.

Family Edit

Rolfe married Robert Bolling around 1674.
