    Notes 
    • The will of John Rolfe, 1664 called John and Richard Whittier "my sister's sons." NEHGR 1882 p.144 , states that Thomas Whittier married a sister of Henry and John Rolfe. Ruth Green appears on the Haverhill records. It is not an original entry of marriage, however, and no date is given. The record was made about 1665. On the Salisbury record Mary, born 1647, is a daughter of Thomas and Ruth. The suggestion has been made that Ruth may have been a half-sister of the Rolfes, or a widow when she married Whittier, or possibly a sister of John Rolfe's wife. Thomas Whittier was, however, more than 30 years younger than John Rolfe.
