Pocahontas and her Descendants

From the title page:

"Pocahontas, alias Matoaka, and her descendants through her marriage at Jamestown, Virginia, in April, 1614, with John Rolfe, gentleman; including the names of Alfriend, Archer, Bentley, Bernard, Bland, Bolling, Branch, Cabell, Catlett, Cary, Dandridge, Dixon, Douglas, Duval, Eldridge, Ellett, Ferguson, Field, Fleming, Gay, Gordon, Griffin, Grayson, Harrison, Hubard, Lewis, Logan, Markham, Meade, McRae, Murray, Page, Poythress, Randolph, Robertson, Skipwith, Stanard, Tazewell, Walke, West, Whittle, and others. With Biographical Sketches by Wyndham Robertson and Illustrated Historical Notes by R.A. Brock."

A tabulated genealogy of the Red Bollings and their descendants through daughters, with some potted bios, but otherwise few details.

Coverage

Most people who died without issue are omitted. Extends to generation 7 (ie. 4 generations after John Bolling of Cobbs, b 1676), but the 7th generation (born around 1800 more or less) is patchy. Total about 400 descendants.

(There's an estimate that Pocahontas might have 100,000 living descendants today)

About 25 people have biographical sketches. Generally, dates, places and even middle names are very scanty.


Updates

The Robertson book is not up to date and is superseded by later books.

"Revised, enlarged and extended edition" (rewrite) by Stuart Brown, 1985. 5 later supplements of "corrections and additions" published. The first two of those were later incorporated with a reprint of the base volume.
