Hannah Rolfe Dole
Birth: 1630
Death: Nov. 16, 1678
Essex County
Massachusetts, USA

Daughter of Henry Rolfe and Honor Rolfe, original founders of Newbury. First wife of Richard Dole, original Dole immigrant and founder of Newbury.

Her widower, Richard Dole, married Samuel Brocklebank's widow, Hannah Brocklebank, maiden name unknown, after both Hannah Rolfe and Samuel Brocklebank died. Two of the Brocklebank children married two of the Dole children.

I believe DOB is based on age on stone.

Children include
--John b 1648 married Mary Gerrish,
--William married Mary Brocklebank,
--Richard b 1650 married Sarah Greenleaf,
--Anna (1653-1653),
--Benjamin b 1654,
--Joseph b 1657,
--Henry b 1662/3 married Hannah Brocklebank,
--Hannah b 1665 married John Moody,
--Apphia b 1668 married Peter Coffin,
--Abner b 1671/2 married Mary Jewett and Sarah Beecher.
