Jane Pierce Rolfe
Learn about removing the ads from this memorial...
Birth: 1595, England
Death: 1635
Jamestown
James City County
Virginia, USA

Third wife of the John Rolfe. She was born in England between 1587 and 1595, and came to Virginia Colony with her mother, Joan, and father, Jamestown colonist William Pierce in 1609. Jane's death is estimated at between 1625-35. No official documentation of either of these vital statistics have been found for her.

Jane and John were recorded as married in 1620 at Jamestown, so that is why we know she was a wife of John after the death of 1st wife Sarah and 2nd wife Pocahontas.

John and Jane may have had a daughter, Elizabeth Pierce Rolfe, who lived to the age of 15, but no proof has emerged to back this up. Jane was widowed in 1622, after only being married to John Rolfe for two years. She later married Capt. John Smith.
