John Rolfe

NOTES:  An ancestor who overlapped the entire lifetime of William Shakespeare (though perhaps as a busy and fairly prosperous yeoman farmer in Wiltshire, he had no awareness of London theatre), and whose will, transcribed by Elizabeth French in Genealogical Research in England, is one of several from the Rolfe family in this era.  His brother (first name unknown) married Alice ______ (d. 1604/5), and their granddaughter Honor Rolfe married John and Honur's son Henry  (1585- 1642).
