	Co. died 1676 at Kippax, Charles City, VA.
    	
"In 1616, John Rolfe and his wife, Pocahontas, in company with Sir Thomas
Dale, also of the company, ventured to England to show off the Princess to the
King and Queen.  While in London she gave birth to their only child, a son,
Thomas Rolfe. Not long after this Pocahontas died at Gravesend.
                              
John returned to his beloved Virginia with his young son and when Thomas was
old enough to attend school John sent him to England for that purpose and he
took lodgings, and was under the care and tutorship of his uncle, Henry Rolfe.
Thomas thereafter returned to his home in Virginia and settled on a large estate
in old Henrico County (now Chesterfield) above where Petersburg now is. He
married Miss Jane Poythress and by her had one daughter, Jane Rolfe, before his
untimely death.

The American Colonies of the seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries all had
stringent laws prohibiting interracial marriages. Because Pocahontas and John
Rolfe were married very early in the seventeenth century with the approval of the
then Governor of the colony, and because Pocahontas was of royal (albeit
aborigine) blood, the statutes in Virginia made an exception in their case. The
laws of the other colonies, however, were very strict, and the punishment was
severe. Thus, Thomas Rolfe was "safe" but only in Virginia or back in England.
He chose to return to Virginia to claim the vast amount of land Powhatan had
given the couple when John and Pocahontas married.
                              
When Jane Poythress died, after bearing an only daughter, Thomas Rolfe is
reputed to have left Virginia and moved to North Carolina, where he is also
reputed to have married again. With the laws of North Carolina so strict, both
then and during the next century or so, it is understandable that Thomas would
never have mentioned the fact that he was half Indian, nor would that
information have likely been passed down in the family tales.

If, in fact, Thomas did remarry after he left Virginia and sired a number of male
children, it would be reasonable to assume that one or more of them returned to
the motherland, particularly if they knew of their ancestor's ethnic background
and were therefore nervous about remaining in the colonies."
