About Mary Bolling

John Bolling married Mary Kennon, daughter of Richard Kennon and Elizabeth Worsham, in December 29, 1697 at St. John's Church in Richmond, Virginia. Mary Kennon was born June 29, 1679 at Conjurer's Neck, Henrico Co., Virginia, and died June 29, 1727 at Cobbs. They had at least six children, whose names all appear in John Bolling's will.

Documented children of John Fairfax Bolling and Mary Kennon are:

  • John Kennon Bolling (1700–1757) married Elizabeth Bland Blair (who was the niece of James Blair, the first president of The College of William & Mary) in 1728 and had seven children.
  • Jane Bolling (1703–1766) married Colonel Richard Randolph and had six children.
  • Elizabeth Bolling (b. 1709), married William Gay and had three children.
  • Mary Bolling (1711–1744), married John Fleming and had six children.
  • Martha Bolling (1713–1737), married Thomas Eldridge in 1729 and had four children.
  • Anne Bolling (1718–1800), married James Murray and had six children.

Two children may be daughters of John Bolling and Mary Kennon but they were not named in his will. If they are his children, the mystery is why they were NOT named in the will. If they are not his children, then what are their connections to Bolling? These two children are not attached to this profile, and have disclaimers on their profiles.

  • Penelope Bolling (c. 1700-1776), married Captain Christopher Clark (his ancestry is unproven), and had a son Bolling Clark, two grandsons Bolling Clark, a grandson Bolling Clark Anthony, and several other descendants named "Bolling," "John Bolling," or, indeed, "Rolfe Bolling."
  • Lucy Bolling (1719-1767), married Peter Randolph, son of William Randolph II and Elizabeth Beverley. She is more likely the daughter of John Fairfax Bolling's kinsman Robert Bolling, Jr.
