    • On Kippax Plantation...

      Kippax Plantation was located on the south bank of the Appomattox River in what is today the City of Hopewell in southeast Virginia . Kippax Plantation was the home of Colonel Robert Bolling (1646-1709). Bolling married Jane Rolfe , who was the granddaughter of Pocahontas and John Rolfe . Their only child, John Bolling was born at Kippax in 1676, and settled nearby at Cobbs Plantation, just west of Point of Rocks across the Appomattox River in what is now Chesterfield County . While Jane's father Thomas Rolfe (1615-1675) never lived at Kippax Plantation, it is believed that he was buried there.

      Kippax Plantation is considered to be a well-preserved archaeological site that is also well documented. Archaeologist Donald W. Linebaugh , of the University of Kentucky , located the remains of Col. Bolling's house in Hopewell, Virginia in 2002.[3]

  • Notes 
    • Jane Rolfe (October 10, 1650 1676) was the granddaughter of Pocahontas and English colonist John Rolfe , (credited with introducing a strain of tobacco for export by the struggling Virginia Colony ). Her husband was Colonel Robert Bolling who lived from 1646-1709. Robert and Jane had one son John Fairfax Bolling (1676 - 1729).
      Pocahontas, who adopted the Christian name of Rebecca,[1][2] married John Rolfe on April 5, 1614 in Jamestown . Rolfe's longtime friend, Reverend Richard Buck presided the wedding.[3] They had one child, Thomas Rolfe , who was born in Virginia on January 30, 1615.
      She was born in Varina, Henrico County, Virginia on October 10, 1650 [4] to Thomas Rolfe and his wife, Jane Poythress whose English parents were Francis Poythress and Alice Payton.[5][6][7]
      In about 1675, Jane married Robert Bolling of Prince George County , Virginia . Their son John was born on January 27, 1676. Jane is said to have died shortly afterward.[4]
      John Bolling married Mary Kennon, daughter of Richard Kennon and Elizabeth Worsham of Conjurer's Neck.[4] The couple had six surviving children, each of whom married and had surviving children.[8] As a result, many Americans are today able to claim descent from Pocahontas through her great-grandson, John Bolling.
      Rolfe's interment was near her father in the Kippax Plantation , but her birth year was never engraved on her headstone [4]
