    Notes 
    • Arrived in New England as an apprentice to John Lowell, son of Percival Lowell. In his apprenticeship record at Bristol, dated 7 September 1637, he is listed as Richard Dole, son of William Dole from the parish of Thornbury, Gloucestershire, tanner, apprentice to John Lowle of the City of Bristol, glover, and his wife Mary. The Lowle family settled in Newbury and Richard Dole continued as clerk in their employ for a time. But he entered early, and with great activity and enterprise, upon business for himself. He long held a prominent place as merchant in Newbury, and also became an extensive landholder, and left at his decease an estate of £1840 - a large property for those times. He built and made his home through life, on the north bank of the river Parker, just below where "Oldtown bridge" is now located. He was a man of marked ability and upright character, influential and respected as a citizen and a christian.
