Agnes Ann Rolfe (Ross, Roffe) was born March 1, 1561/2 in Worstead, Norfolk, England to Nicholas and Cecilia (Carr) Rolfe.
In 1583, Agnes married John Aldrich (Aldriche) in Worstead Parish, Norfolk, England. Their marriage is shown in a record book of Norfolk, England Parish Registers for the period 1581-1590 (under "A" and also "R"). The record book also shows Aldriche births: Imma (1585), John (1588), and Grace (1590). It seems likely that they are the children of John and Agnes (Rolfe) Aldriche. Other reported children are Clement and Margaret (Aldred) Sayre.
I think her name is Rolfe based on the entry under "A".
Although not as clear, I think that the entry under "R" could be read as Rolfe also.
I think neither could be read as Ross (or Rosse), based on "Russell" from the same "R" page:
- ↑ Ross-3350 1561; Rolfe-91 had 1562 (both had March 1). At that time, March would have been the start of the new year (see Sue Roe's article, "The Problem of Dates"). Dates for events occurring in January, February, or March are frequently written with a double year (e.g., 1561/2).

Note: As discussed here, and posted in G2G, Rolfe is likely the best birth surname for Agnes. Therefore, I protected this profile (under the Arborists project) to facilitate merges with profiles using other spellings. If evidence is found to support a different spelling, please start another G2G discussion. Thanks!
