He was born circa 1638 at Newbury, Essex County, Massachusetts; Hoyt's Old Families of Salisbury and Amesbury puts Benjamin's birth date as about 1638.4 He was born in 1638 at Newbury, Essex County, Massachusetts; The birth/date was recorded at Cambridge, MA though he was probably actually born at Newbury.1 Subject: Rolfe Date:Sat, 25 Jul 1998 09:12:47 -0400 (EDT) From: ginnyb@tiac.net (Virginia Basken) To: ggrpvc@cyberportal.net Hi Gary, Thanks for your note on Honor's will. Hoyt's Old Families of Salisbury and Amesbury puts Benjamin's birth date as about 1638. He was a freeman in 1670 and married Apphia Hale 3 November, 1659. His occupation was a 'weaver'. Apphia was the daughter of Thomas. Benjamin died 10 Aug 1710, and he did leave a will, mentioning his wife.. Apphia died 24 Dec 1708. I don't currently have a copy of Henry's will, but I do know that I can probably get it rather easily, and also Benjamin's if you are interested in it. Regards, Ginny. He was born in 1640 at Newbury, Essex County, Massachusetts.5 He mentioned with Henry Rolfe and Honour Rolfe circa 1642 at Newbury, Essex County, Massachusetts; propieter 1642 Newbury (Red Rolfe); The ancestors of the Rolfe families in Boscawen and Concord [NH] were two brothers, who came from England and settled in Newbury, MA, about 1635. The tradition was that these brothers were the ancestors of all the Rolfes in this country; but the records of Ipswich, MA show that in 1640 there were two men in that town by the name of Daniel and Ezra Rolfe; so this tradition is erroneous.
Henry (1), with his wife Honour, and his brother John, with his wife, Esther, were in Newbury before 1642.
[Children] John, Benjamin, and two daughters.6,7 Honour Rolfe mentioned Benjamin Rolfe in a will in 1650 at Newbury, Essex Coounty, Massachusetts; Honour Rolfe (Immigrant) left a will 1650 at the home of her son-in-law Thomas Blanchard where she lay 'berry sick.' The will was noncupative (an oral will given in the presence of witnesses usually at the time when the testator is very near death). She wished her possessions to go to her sons Benjamin and John, and her two daughters Hannah Dole and Anna. She also wantged each her four grandchildren to have twenty shillings four or five years after her death. Benjamin and John were not yet married, while Hannah had married Richard Dole and was the mother of two sons. The other two grandchildren were the daughter of Anna (Rolfe) Blanchard

Coffin, in his 'List of Early Settlers' (Reg., vol. 6, p. 341), giving her name 'Hale, Apphia, '. 17 in 1659.' Coffin's MS., given to Jas. W. Hale, also mentions her as the fourth child of Thomas1 Hale. She m. Benjamin2 Rolfe, as shown by the records of Newbury, 3 Nov., 1659. He was son of Henry1 and Honour Rolfe of Newbury, though Coffin strangely enough puts two additional generations between him and his mother, making her his great-grandmother, and mother of his father, whom Coffin makes his grandfather. He thus makes Benjamin2 Rolfe, who was m. in 1659, of the fourth generation of Rolfes in Newbury. He was a weaver, b. between 1637 and 1640, admitted freeman in 1659, and d. in Newbury in Aug., 1710, his wife having d. 24 Dec., 1708. The name was almost, though not quite, uniformly spelled Rolfe by the family in New England, and with almost equal unanimity was spelled Rolph by the branches of the family settled in New Jersey and on Long Island, a distinction which is kept up with substantial agreement to the present day. Besides these two spellings there are found on the records, not by members of the family but by others, the following: Rolf, Rolphe, Roffe, Roaf, Roaff, Ralph, Ralf and Rafe. Benjamin Rolfe died between 1715 and 1750 at New Jersey; in 1715 was a member of the New Jersey militia.1

About 1685, Henry's parents relocated to Woodbridge, NJ. in 1685 at New Jersey.2 They witnessed an unknown person 's death at Woodbridge, Middlesex County, New Jersey, on 4 June 1690. Estate of John Rolfe was administered by his brother Joseph 1697 - Wee the undersubscribers, who are the brothers and sisters of John Rolph have each of us Received ourproportion of the sum of 24 pounds.4.5-1/2 in the hands of his brother and administrator Joseph Rolph: Benjamin Rolph, Benjamin Cromwell, Jonathan Donham, Moses Rolph, Henry Rolph.

However, over 25 years of research by this author has convinced him that there can be no other conclusdion. The will of Henry Rolph dated 27 Feb 1722/23 listed his children as John, Mary, Joseph, Sarah, and Henry. Mary was under 18 years old at that time. Therefore it can be assumed that Joseph was born ca 1700 - 1710. The Bible of Abraham Van Tuyl records the marriage of his son Denis [sic] to Neeltie Kroeson, Denis' death, and Neeltie's subsequent marriage to Joseph Rolph, a widower. It also records the birth dates of Joseph's four children by his first wife Elizabeth, and the four children by Joseph's second marriage to Neeltie. Also recorded was Joseph's death on 1 SEp 1776 in his 70th year. Having accounted for all the other known Joseph Rolfe/ Roff/ Rolph etc of that period in New Jersey, New York and Massachusetts, the above identification is considered by the author to be factual unless it be proven otherwise.

Apphia Hale was born circa 1642 at Massachusetts.1 She was born in 1642 at Newbury, Essex County, Massachusetts; abt 17 in 1659 at marriage.2 She married Benjamin Rolfe, son of John Rolfe and Mary Scollard, on 3 November 1659 at Newbury, Essex County, Massachusetts; Torrey's NE Marriages.2,5,6 As of 3 November 1659,her married name was Rolfe.1 Apphia Hale married Benjamin Rolfe, son of John Rolfe and Mary Scollard, on 3 November 1659 at Newbury, Essex County, Massachusetts.1 Apphia Hale died on 24 December 1708 at Newbury, Essex County, Massachusetts.1 She died on 24 December 1708 at Newbury, Essex County, Massachusetts; NEHGR 31:87.2,5,7 She and Benjamin Rolfe Apphia2 (Hale) Rolfe (Thomas1) of Newbury was born in Newbury probably in 1642. Coffin, in his 'List of Early Settlers' (Reg., vol. 6, p. 341), giving her name 'Hale, Apphia, '. 17 in 1659.' Coffin's MS., given to Jas. W. Hale, also mentions her as the fourth child of Thomas1 Hale. She m. Benjamin2 Rolfe, as shown by the records of Newbury, 3 Nov., 1659. He was son of Henry1 and Honour Rolfe of Newbury, though Coffin strangely enough puts two additional generations between him and his mother, making her his great-grandmother, and mother of his father, whom Coffin makes his grandfather. He thus makes Benjamin2 Rolfe, who was m. in 1659, of the fourth generation of Rolfes in Newbury. He was a weaver, b. between 1637 and 1640, admitted freeman in 1659, and d. in Newbury in Aug., 1710, his wife having d. 24 Dec., 1708. The name was almost, though not quite, uniformly spelled Rolfe by the family in New England, and with almost equal unanimity was spelled Rolph by the branches of the family settled in New Jersey and on Long Island, a distinction which is kept up with substantial agreement to the present day. Besides these two spellings there are found on the records, not by members of the family but by others, the following: Rolf, Rolphe, Roffe, Roaf, Roaff, Ralph, Ralf and Rafe.

His w. d. 24 Dec. 1708, and he d. 10 Aug. 1710.3


Coffin says "Benjamin (2) Henry (1) [children] John, Benjamin, Henry, Nathaniel, Samuel, and four daughters.4 Henry Rolfe was born on 12 October 1677 at Newbury, Essex County, Massachusetts.1 He was Justice of the Peace and Representative in the Assembly.5 He married Hannah Toppan in 1705 at Massachusetts.5 Henry Rolfe married Hannah Toppan in 1705 at Newbury, Essex County, Massachusetts.1 Henry Rolfe lived between 1726 and 1727 at Concord, Merrimack County, New Hampshire; In the course of the summer and autumn some of the admitted settlers were on the ground,and made hay upon the tempting intervals on the west side of the river, stacking it for the future use of "the community." It seems also that two of them at least -- Henry Rolfe and Richard Urann -- spent the ensuing winter, or a part of it, in Pennacook, and hence it is sometimes claimed that they were the first settlers. It is saidthat the winter of 1726-27 was one of unusual cold and depth of snow, and that these hardy pioneers sufferred not a little from the severity of the season and lack of provisions, but were relieved by the kindly services of friendly Indians, who still lingered in the home of their fathers.6 Penacook settlers met and "appointed John Chandler, Henry Rolfe, William White, Richard Hazzen Jr and John Osgood 'to lay out the intervale that had not yet been laid out so that the whole --including the part already laid out -- should 'be equally divided among the settlers' as to quanity and quality."6 He "At this adjourned meeting-- the first of the kind held by the settlers on the soil of their new plantation, and the earliest forerunner of "Concord Town Meetings,"-- Capt Henry Rolfe was moderator, with John Wainwright, of the court's committee, clerk. The progress of settlement was evinced in the appointment of Henry Rolfe, Ebenezer Eastman, and James Mitchell as a committee to procure the building of a sawmill within six months, 'to supply the town with good merchantable boards of yellow pine, at thirty shillings per thousand and. . .white pine boads at forty shillings per thousand -- or to saw of each sort to the halves'; and also 'to agree with some person or persons to erect a grist mill." on 15 May 1728 at Penacook, Merrimack County, New Hampshire.6 He and Benjamin Rolfe Massachusetts General Court "authorized Henry Rolfe to calll a meeting ofthe inhabitants and grantees" at the meeting house, on tghe 29th of March 1731, and of which he was to be moderator. . .It instructed Henry Rolfe "to take an exact accounting of what was done in each lot in fencing, building, and improving,' and lay the same before the court at the next May session."
"At the meeting held pursuant to this order, the list of officers suggested by the general court was filled by election. Benjamin Rolfe, son of the moderator, and a recent graduate of Harvard College, was chosen clerk. He was a rising man, and had already served as recording officer at the meeting of 'the admitted settlers,' held the previous year forthe choice of a minister. About that time, too, John Wainwright, who had kept the records of the court's committtee and of the proprieters, resigned, Rolfe becoming his successor, as proprietary clerk, or, as he was sometimes designated, 'clerk forthe settlers and grantees of PennyCook.'" on 29 March 1731 at Concord, Merrimack County, New Hampshire.6 Henry Rolfe and Benjamin Rolfe "In December 1732, the setttlers of Pennacook, by Henry Rolfe, made petition to the authorities in Massachusetts that "some meet person" might be empowered to "call the first meeting of the inhabitants for the ends and purposes" of the January order of that year; thus affording relief from "many hardships and difficulties." Whereupon, on the 21st of December (1732), Governor Belcher "consented to" the following order, which the day before, had been concurrently agreed upon by the Council and the house of representatives: "Ordered that Mr.
Benjamin Rolfe, one of the principlal inhabitants of the plantation of PennyCoook be and hereby is fully empowered to assemble and convene the inhabitants of said plantation, to choose officers and to do other matters, in pursuance of an order of this court at their session, begun and held at Boston, the first day of December, 1731, which officers, when chosen, are to stand until the anniversary meeting in March next."
"In accordance withthis order, Benjamin Rolfe, on the 8th of January 1733, "set up" the notification at the meeting house door in PennyCook." between December 1732 and 8 January 1733 at Penacook, Merrimack County, New Hampshire.6 Henry Rolfe and Benjamin Rolfe Rumford became a town within the Massachusetts Bay Colony by bill enacted into law 27 Feb 1734 and the act of incorporation was confirmed by King George tghe Second in 1737. Benjamin Rolfe, as clerk, called the first town meeting, but no money could be raised "a special order of the general court being requisite to such action." So "in November Ebenezer Eastman and Henry Rolfe were chosen to petition the General Court for an order . . .for raising money for defraying the ministerial charge and other charges of the town for this year and the court's pleasure." The movement seems tohave been successful; for, at a town meeting held on the 26th of December, 1734, "one hundred and ten pounds were raised. . . for defraying the ministerial and school charge and the othernecessary charges of the town for the year current." between 27 February 1734 and 1737 at Penacook, Merrimack County, New Hampshire.6 Henry Rolfe witnessed King George the Second decreed the boundary between Massachusetts and New Hampshire to be "three miles north of the Merrimack as far as that river flowed from west to east," thus cut off from Massachusetts "twenty-eight new townships between Merrimack and Connecticut Rivers; besides large tracts of vacant land, which lay intermixed; and districts from six of 'its old towns on the north side of the Merrimack," including Rumford on 5 March 1740 at London, Greater London County, England.6 He witnessed New Hampshire passed an act Mar 18 1742 entitled "An act for subjecting all persons and estates within this province, lying to the eastward and northward of the northern and eastern boundary of the province of Massachusetts Bay (not being within any township) to pay a tax (according to the rules herine prescribed) towards the support of the government." The act provided that "all polls and estates rateable by the laws of the province, and situate as set forth in the title, should be "divided into certain Districts." One of these comprised "that part of Almsbury and Salisbury which by the settlement of the boundaries 'fell within New Hampshire; and another, that part of Methuen and Dracut in like situation; while Litchfield, Nottingham "West [Hudson], Rumford, and a part of Dunstable, consituted four others." on 18 March 1742 at Portsmouth, Rockingham County, New Hampshire.6 He witnessed Last annual meeting of Rumford as a Massachusetts Town, Benjamin Rolfe elected town clerk. on 31 March 1742 at Penacook, Merrimack County, New Hampshire.6 He witnessed inhabitants of Rumford held first meeting as a New Hampshire District; Benjamin Rolfe elected clerk on 27 April 1742 at Rumford, Merrimack County, New Hampshire.6 He died on 12 July 1752 at Newbury, Essex County, Massachusetts, at age 74; Henry Rolfe "having been a leading spirit in planting Penacook and incorporating Rumford, had returned long ago to his Massachusetts home. . ."1,6 Henry 3 (Benjamin 2) was the ancestor of the Rolfe families of Concord. [Child] Nathaniel;

from Fred Rolfe -- He was one of the original Proprieters of Penacoook (where some of his descendants are now living.)4,7
