Henry Pearson Rolfe1

M, b. 13 February 1821, d. 29 May 1898
FatherBenjamin Rolfe1 b. 29 Jan 1773, d. 19 Jan 1857
MotherMargaret Searle1 b. 12 Feb 1782, d. 27 Dec 1840
     Henry P Rolfe, son of Benjamin Rolfe, born in Boscawen, Feb 12 1823, graduated at Dartmouth College 1848; commenced the practice of law in Concord 1851; and in March 1853 became associated with Anson S Marshall, Esq, under the firm of Rolfe and Marshall.2 Henry Pearson Rolfe was born in Boscawen, February 13, 1821. His father, Benjamin Rolfe, was also a native of Boscawen. His grandparents on his father's side, Benjamin and Lydia Pierson Rolfe, came from Newbury, Mass immediately after the close of the French war, and settled near the frontier in Boscawen, near the Salisbury line.
His mother, Margaret Searle Rolfe, was the daughter of Jonathan Searle, the first settled minister of Salisbury. His grandmother, on the maternal side, was the daughter of Jethro Sanborn, a sea-captain, of Sandown, who, to feed our suffering soldiers at Valley Forge, gave a large share of his fortune in exchange for depreciated Continental money, which became worthless and for which the government never made any return to him or to his heirs. Several thousand dollars of this irredeemable scrip came into the possession of the mother of the subject of this sketch, Margaret Searle.
The mother of Mrs. Rolfe and Daniel Webster were both pupils of Master Tappan, and for a time were schoolmates. She graduated from Atkinson academy when it was in charge of the then famous professor Vose, and after that was a teacher for nine years. She was teaching in Mr. Webster's school-district when he returned from his school in Fryeburg. A friendship sprang up between them, and she loved to rehearse, in later years, to her children, how Webster unfolded to her all his struggles and ambitions, and his fixed purpose never to be guilty of an unworthy act.
Mr. Rolfe was raised on a farm, and his parents being poor, his education, till his tenth year, was limited to six months yearly in the district school. From ten to sixteen he was allowed only three months of schooling, during the winter terms. The winter of his sixteenth and seventeenth year he spent in the woods with his father, driving a lumber team. From that time till he was twenty years of age, he enjoyed only nineteen weeks of schooling-five at Franklin and fourteen at Salisbury academy.
Such privileges seem scanty in our day, and yet such were his powers of acquisition that at eighteen we find young Rolfe teaching his first district school, an employment whicfh he followed for nine successive winters with unvarying and ever-growing success.
When nineteen, the family moved to Hill, in this state. In 1841, when twenty years of age, he began his preparation for college at New Hampton. He spent three years in the preparatory course, and entered Dartmouth college in 1844. Being obliged to depend upon his own efforts to secure the necessary means to defray the expense of his education, he taught school during the winters of his preparatory and collegiate courses. For several successive seasons he was employed upon Cape Cod, but during his sophomore and junior years he taught for five months each year at Dartmouth, Mass .and three months of his senior year in the same school.
When in attendance upon the college, Mr. Rolfe was exceptionally punctual in the discharge of all his duties. During his senior year he was never absent from a recitation, lecture, or other exercise. He asked for no excuse, and met every requisition. Such a record is unusual in college classes, and perhaps stood alone in his own. Mr. Rolfe's student life was eminently successful, both in the acquisition of mental discipline and scholarly attainments. In 1848 he graduated from Dartmouth with the highest respect of the faculty and the warmest attachment of his classmates.
Although compelled to be absent, teaching, five months during the first three years of his collegiate course, upon his graduation he received this special commendation from the president of the institution:
Dartmouth College July 25, 1848
This may certify that Mr. Henry P. Rolfe is a graduate of the present year at this college. He is a highly respected student. His course has been remarkably correct and exemplary. It gives me pleasure to commend him as a good scholar and an upright man. He is a well qualified teacher, and worthy of the confidence and patronage of any who may have occasion for his services.
After a few weeks of rest he entered the law-office of Hon. Asa Fowler, of Concord, on the 21st of September, and after two years and a half of study, was admitted to the bar in May 1851. On admission to the bar he immediately opened an office in Concord, and step by step advanced in professional strength and standing, till, in 1869, he was appointed United States attorney for the district of New Hampshire by President Grant, and discharged the responsible and exacting duties of the office vigorously, ably, and conscientiously for five years.
During the years 1852 and 1853 he was a member of the board of education for Concord, and served as chairman of the board the last year. He was also elected as a Democrat to represent the town in the legislature of 1853. He was again sent to the legislature, as a Republican, to represent ward 5 in the city of Concord, during the stormy years 1863 and 1864. This was during the period of war, when the government called for the services of its ablest and most trusted citizens.
In 1859 and 1860 he was the Democratic candidate for state senator from his district, and during the latter was candidate for presidential elector for the same party on the Douglas ticket. In 1866 he was appointed postmaster of Concord by Andrew Johnson, but his commission was withheld because he refused to assist in electing Democrats to congress.
In 1878 Gov. Prescott made Mr. Rolfe a member of the commission to take testimony, and report to the legislature what legislation was necessary to protect the citizens in the vicinity of Lake Winnipiseogee [sic] against the encroachments of the Lake Company. An investigation was had, and a report made by the commission; and where constant complaint had been made, not a murmur of dissatisfaction has since been heard.
This is no ordinary record, and is the evidence of solid merit. Mr. Rolfe has been a patient student, a sound lawyer, and a strong advocate. A good cause is safe in his hands, if a suit at law can be said to be safe in any hands. He has often been called to speak before assemblies of his fellow-citizens, political and otherwise. On such occasions he always impresses his hearers with the extent and accuracy of his information, and with his strong and sterling good sense. Mr. Rolfe believes what he says, and says what he believes. His friendships are strong, and he is slow to see faults in those whom he loves.
On the 22nd of November 1853 he married Mary Rebecca Sherburn, daughter of Robert H Sherburne, of Concord, by whom he has had five children, as follows:
Marshall Potter Rolfe, b 29 Sept 1854, d 6 Aug 1862
Margaret Florence, b 12 Jan 1858, d 2 May 1858
Henrietta Maria, b 17 Jan 1861, d 22 Sept 1862
Robert Henry, b 16 Oct 1863
George Hamilton, b 24 Dec 1866
The fourth child, Robert Henry, is now a graduate of Dartmouth College, class of 1884; and George Hamilton, a lad of eighteen, is pursuing his studies at the Holderness School for Boys, in Holderness, NH.
In the spring of 1882, Mr. Rolfe nearly lost his life from the kick of a vicious horse. The result of this terrible accident has been the loss of his right eye and a complete prostration of his nervous system, from which he has been slowly recovering. He has not yet regained his former vigor and elasticity, but the original force of his constitution and the sleepless care of his most estimable wife are gradually bringing him back to his professional duties and power. He is resuming his practice, which at the time of his injury was quite lucrative.
This brief sketch of life and character has been drawn by an impartial though friendly hand, and it gives us no ordinary man. Mr. Rolfe is a man of large frame and unusual gifts of mind. He has led an active, successful life, but, in the judgment of the writer, has never yet brought the full strength of his faculties into action. He has a reserve of power which it is hoped the future may give him an opportunity to use. (pp. 208-211).3
Henry Pearson Rolfe was born on 13 February 1821 at Boscawen, Merrimack County, New Hampshire.1,4 He was born on 12 February 1823 at Boscawen, Merrimack County, New Hampshire.2 He was principal at New Hampshire between 1833 and 1841 when an unknown person was a student.

S. district attorney for NH between 1869 and 1874 at New Hampshire.5 He gave this speech Extracted from speech on pages 66-69 of One Hundred and Fiftieth Anniversary of the Settlement of Boscawen and Webster

Last month I received the very polite invitation of the Committee of Arrangements to attend the celebration of the one hundred and fiftieth anniversary of the settlement of Boscawen. . . The accident which happened to me about seventeen months ago had so seriously affected my health that I much feared I should be obliged to deny myself the gratification of being present on this occasion. But I am here, and it gives me pleasure to mingle with you, and renew old acquaintances. .. Soon after the close of the old French war, my grandfather, Benjamin Rolfe, came to Boscawen from Newbury, Mass and built his "bark cabin" in the primeval forests, on the highest swell of land in the township. His wife, Lydia Pierson Rolfe, accompanied him on horseback to the intervale in Fisherville, soon to be known as Penacook. On a single horse both rode, and carried the axe, the shave, the pod-auger, the gouge, the hoe, and several other tools, and certain domestic utensils. There is a peculiar significance to the gouge in this connection. It was an accompaniment of the pod-auger at all times, and the auger could not be used until the gouge had cut out a cavity for its insertion. These were then what are termed "old pod-auger times;" but the times at length changed, and the change is due to the singular genius of a citizen of Boscawen, Henry Gerrish, who invented the screw auger;-- and let it be always be remembered that to Henry Gerrish, a citizen of this town, is due the credit of changing the old, dull pod-auger times to the lively and more prosperous times of the screw auger!
My grandmother returned alone on horseback, going through Chester to Newbury, and joined her family of five children; and my grandfather took his axe, his camp-kettle, and such other articles as he could carry on his back, sought out his future home in the lone, dense forests, four miles north-westerly of where we now stand, on what was afterwards called High Street, and was for a time the frontier settler in the town, as Daniel Webster's father was the frontier settler in the town of Salisbury. During the summer and fall he stayed alone, and heard no sound in his "clearing" save the birds and the wild beasts, his axe, and his own musical voice. His wife and children remained in Newbury.
Late in the fall of the year his wife came up for him alone on horseback, visited him in his cabin, and he returned with her to Newbury, where he worked in a ship-yard, being by trade a ship's carpenter. In the spring he returned to his cabin in the woods, his wife accompanying him on horseback, and returning again alone. In course of time he cleared away the forests, built himself a house and barn, the first frame house in the town, dug a well, sowed and planted his land, and made the wilderness smile. Thither he eventually moved his wife and five children, in the spring of 1772.
In this house my father was born, in 1773. In this house I was raised, and all the days of my childhood were passed here. All the first recollections of my youth, after more than half a century, turn back to this spot where I first drew breath, and where the opening buds of life cheered me with their fragrance.
In the little brick school-house on the highlands of Boscawen I drank from the "Pierian spring" some "shallow draughts." I cannot say that my brain was not intoxicated here, but this I will say, that my body was never intoxicated here or elsewhere. . .
on 16 August 1883 at Boscawen, Merrimack County, New Hampshire.3 He died on 29 May 1898 at Concord, Merrimack County, New Hampshire, at age 77.1 Henry Pearsons 7 (Benjamin 6), educated at New Hampton Institution, and entered Dartmouth Coll; graduated in 1848; studied law in the office of Asa Fowler, of Concord; admitted to practice, 1851, forming a co-partnership with the late A.S. Marshall; elected to the legislature from Concord 1853, and after the city was incorporated, from Ward 5, 1863, 1864; appointed U.S. district attorney for NH, by President Grant, 1869, an office he held till 1874; m Mary Rebecca, dau of Robert H.
