Henry Rolfe

NOTES:  The "husbandman" whose will (transcribed by Elizabeth French in Genealogical Research in England) is, to my current knowledge, the oldest extant document in our family's history, and one that gives a succinct picture of  the simple farming households and community of the 16th-century Wiltshire Rolfes.  See notes on Richard (1545- ca. 1667). Living to about age 43, Henry outdid his son (22) and grandson (31) in longevity.
