Benjamin Rolfe1

FatherHenry Rolfe1 b. 12 Oct 1677, d. 12 Jul 1752
MotherHannah Toppan1 b. 4 Mar 1679, d. 2 Jan 1758
     Benjamin Rolfe was also known as Colonel Benjamin Rolfe.2 Rolfe, Benjamin (1710 Newbury - 1771 Concord NH) Rumford HR 1740; HarC 1727, selectman 1732-49, 66-68, district clerk 1732-47, 66, 68; JP. M Sarah Walker (1739/40-1792) in 1769, 1 chj: land speculator, legal advisorl. One slave. As the clerk of the proprieters of Penacook NH he was regarded for his sound judgment and prudence. No committees. He intended marriage in 1736 to Hepzibah Hazen, butr is unclear whether it ever took place. Sarah married 2nd Benjamin Thompson, later Count Rumford, in 1771. Sibley 8:258-63; 1856 Concord b 182-7, 555-6.3 He was born on 8 July 1710 at Newbury, Essex County, Massachusetts.1 He was born on 15 February 1714/15 at Newbury, Essex County, Massachusetts.4 He graduated from Harvard in 1727 and shortly therafter settled for life at Penacook NH (known prior to 1883 as Fisherville). In 1731 he was clerk of the Proprieters, and was, for many years, the clerk of nearby Rumford, now Concord. His was a lifetime of service to the community, for which he had the greatest respects of its citizens. He held the commission of Colonel in the militia.1 He and Henry 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.5 Benjamin Rolfe and Henry 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.5 Benjamin Rolfe and Henry 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.5 Benjamin 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.5 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.5 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.5 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.5 He Inhabitants of District of Rumford "empowered Benjamin Rolfe, in their name and behalf, to petition the governor of the general court to be allowed 'to make a choice of some suitable person to serve for and represent them in every session of the assembly.' The request was favorably recieved by Governor Wenworth.
. . .
At a meeting held in compliance with this precept, Benjamin Rolfe was chosen representative." on 11 December 1744 at Rumford, Merrimack County, New Hampshire.5 He married Hepsibah Hazen at Concord, Merrimack County, New Hampshire, say 1745.4 Benjamin Rolfe witnessed Rumford had ceased to be either a distrit or town; settlers were involved in court litigation whether they could keep their land or whether their land should be forfeited to the "Bow proprieters" who claimed to hold title to their land in 1749 at Rumford, Merrimack County, New Hampshire.5 He Early in November 1759, Benjamin Rolfe, Daniel Carter, Timothy Simonds, John Evans, John Chandler, Abraham Colby, and Abraham Kimnball, all of Rumford, were sued, and their goods and estates were attached by the sheriff of the province, to the value of one thousand pounds, "to answer unto the proprieters of the common and undivided lands lying within the township of Bow."
After losing his case in the courts of New Hampshire, Rolfe appealed to His Majesty in Council. Timothy Walker went to London. "The trial came off on the 17th of December 1762, and resulted favorably to the inhabitants of Rumford." in November 1759 at Rumford, Merrimack County, New Hampshire.5 He witnessed an unknown person 's death at Hillsborough County, New Hampshire, between 1760 and 1768.4 He died on 1 January 1761 at Hillsborough County, New Hampshire, at age 50.4 The first chaisse owned in Concord belonged to Col. Benjamin Rolfe; was purchased probably between 1767 and 1770. It had a standing canvass topand probably cost about 50 dollars. Dea Joseph Hal, the elder, about the same time purchased a chaisse like Col. Rolfe's.6 He married Sarah Walker, daughter of Rev. Timothy Walker and Sarah Burbeen, circa 1769 at Concord, Merrimack County, New Hampshire.7 Benjamin died on 21 December 1771 at Concord, Merrimack County, New Hampshire, at age 61. Then called Rumford
"Seven months later, on the 21sgt of December, [Benjamin Rolfe] died in the sixty-second year of his age. His prominent efficiency in the settlement, as a plantation, township, district, parish, or non-corporate organization, hs been noticed on the foregoing pages. The father, Henry Rolfe, having been a leading spirit in planting Penacook and incorporating Rumford,had returned ere long to his Massachusetts home, leaving the son, a young man of liberal education and of good capacity for affairs, to identify himelf with a people whose interests he was so faithfully to serve. This son enjoyed fromthe first the confidence of his fellow citizens, and retaind it to the last. He held all the important offices, frequently two or more at a time. He longest filled the position of town clerk, to which he was, upon declining further service, succeeeded in 1769 by Timothy Walker Jr. Though nota lawyer, Benjamin Rolfe was a capable legal advisor, and satisfactorly discharged the various duties of a civil majistrate. He also had military experience, particularly inthe first French and Indian War, with the rank of Colonel. By inheritance, and by his own industry and prudent management, he aquired a large property in lands, and, at his death, was accounted the richest man in Concord. Colonel Rolfe remained single til his sixtieth year, when he married Sarah WAlker, the minister's eldest daughter, thirty years younger than himself. The son Paul, born of this brief union, inherited his father's estate, inventoried at four thousand and eighty-two pounds lawful money. Before his marriage Colonel Rolfe "lived in a one-story house' at the Eleven Lots, but after that event he built and occupied the larger and more commodious dweling which still stands, as a venerable historic relic, and as part of an asylum sacred to the noble charity of relieving orphanage in Concord.".1,5 He Fred Rolfe - He graduated from Harvard 1727 and almost immediately settled for life at Pennacook, NH where in 1731 he was 'clerk of the proprieters.' He was for many years clerk of nearby Rumford, now Concord. His was a lifetime of service to the community, for which he had the greatest of respect from its citizens. He held the commission of Colonel. He m abt 1769 to Sarah Walker, dau of Rev. Timothy and Sarah (Burbeen) Walker, b 8/6/1739, d 1/10/1792. Col.
