The ordeal or "test" grew out of the superstition that
upon the murderer touching or coming into the presence of
the body of the victim, the wounds would bleed afresh. The
belief was widely prevalent even among the educated people
of Scotland and England in the seventeenth century.
Michael Drayton, an English poet, who lived about 1600,
wrote :
"If the vile actors of the heinous deed
Near the dead body happily be brought,
Oft has been prov'd the breathless corpse will bleed."

William Bolling whome in 1712 told the Courts there he had
known the man on trial many years ago when hed lived in
Virginia and that he was the grandson of Jane Rolph of VA.
I was told this by a man that says hes driven up there
this same William Bolling that testified in 1712 in St Mary
Co Maryland was in fact the son of another William Bolling
that died in Gloucester Vo VA in 1686

So who can you beleive ?the Revolutions top Generals and Oxford scholars of the 1780s the archives or

1803
Bolling, Robert. Memoirs of the Bolling Family. 1803. A Memoir of a Portion of the Bolling Family in England and Virginia. Ed. T. H. W. Richmond, 1868. Written in French by Bolling, translated by family member John Robertson, with notes added by John Randolph. Bolling is the husband of Jane Rolf, the grand-daughter of Pocahontas. It is this Mrs. Robert Bolling whom Chastellux visits in 1786. "The memoir relates only to that branch of the family . . . descended from Pocahontas." In the notes we find this in regard to her marriage to Rolfe: "She must have been very beautiful to have won the heart of an Oxford scholar of independent circumstances at a time when the Indian race were regarded as savages and beyond the pale of the affections of a native of Europe."
[illustrated; genealogy]

As one can see these people were well aware that Robert Bolling his mother and wife Mary Burton told Chestallux that Pochantas had 1 son who had many dughters and others meaning boys. In spite of this they wrote,well check it out
