This topic has been covered many times.
I would suggest you try putting in 'Barnett' in the search forum slot for both this site and that of 'Rolfe'.

I believe that the Barnetts have no connection to Colonist John Rolfe but read the correspondence and decide for yourself.

Not my words but well worth reading if you want to make a good decision re the info on the web sites
