About Judith Eldrige ancestry:

Here is how cited books and chart read: Thomas Eldrige married the daughter of Col John Bolling son of Col Robert Bolling. Col Robert Bolling married the grandaughter of Pocahontas who died at Gravesend, England. John Rolfe and Pocahontas had one son Thomas who married Jane Poythress.

On a personal note and as cited sources read Jane may have been Indian but more than likely English as Poythress name is promient in English History.
