About John Dole

Notes

Settled in that part of Newbury which afterward became the business centre of Newburyport. Administration of his estate was granted 3 Oct 1699.

He was mentioned in the will of Honour Rolfe (Immigrant) in 1650; at the home of her son-in-law Thomas Blanchard where she lay 'berry sick". The will was noncupative (an oral will given in the presence of witnesses usually at the time when the testator is very near death). She wished her possessions to go to her sons, Benjamin and John, and her two daughters, Hannah Dole and Anna. She also wanted each of her four grandchildren to have tweny shillings four or five years after her death. Benjamin and John were not yet married, while Hannah had married Richard Dole and was the mother of two son. The other two grandchildren were the daughters of Anna (Rolfe) Blanchard.5 

From "Ould Newbury": Historical and Biographical Sketches.  By John James Currier. Page 121

Benjamin Dole and John Dole, owners of the land at the foot of Greenleaf's Lane, on the westerly side of what is now Market Square, were grandsons of Richard Dole, merchant, who came from Bristol, England, and settled in Newbury in 1639. They inherited the estate from their father, Dr. John Dole, who was a physician, and the eldest son of Richard Dole. The following deposition, recorded in the Essex Registry of Deeds (Ipswich Series, book 3, page 131 (98), has some historical interest, and is especially worth noting in connection with this description of Dr. Dole's old homestead : —

"The deposition of Thomas Rawlings, aged about 28 years. This deponent testifieth that about seven years & four months past, being at the house of Richard Dole, heard Mr. ffuller profer and engage to Richard Dole, that if he would lett his Sonn John Dole be with him, as long or as little while as his ffather pleased, and did also engage to teach and instruct the sayd John Dole in his art & calling wch he did practice, what he could, and maintain him freely as a child of his owne, exsept clothing, all which the sayd ffuller did engage to doe out of love & respect unto Richard Dole and his wife for the curtisies that the sd ffuller did owne he had received from the sayd Dole, and further this deponent saith not. Sworn in Court held at Ipswich the 28 day of September, 1669. As attest Robert Lord, Cleric. Recorded 6 (8) 69."

Was this Dr. Samuel Fuller of the Mayflower taking on an apprentice?
