Contents: Memoirs of the Bolling family, written by Robert Bolling of Chellowe, Buckingham County, Virginia, translated from the original French manuscript by James Robertson, Jr., son of Wm., 1803.--Notes to the Bolling memoirs.--Appendix.

"This memoir was written in the French language by Robert Bolling ... the original became the property of a member of the family, William Robertson, Esq., and in 1803 he gave it to his son, then a youth, as an exercise in translation ... subsequently the translation fell into the hands of John Randolph of Roanoke ... [he] showed his interest in it by inserting explanatory notes, by interlineation. All of these have been retained, and are to be found [on p. 15-48] ..." Robert Bolling (1646-1709) immigrated from England to Virginia and married twice.
