Family and Education
Jurat, Sandwich Dec. 1418-19, 1420-1, 1422-3; mayor 1423-4.1
This Member may have been the son of John Bolle, the Portsman who, in Richard II’s reign, held land in the east Kent hundreds of Ringslow and Faversham.2
Bolle was prominent among the men of Sandwich who, in June 1422, were obliged to give surety in £100 to the King, to keep the peace towards the prior of Christ Church, Canterbury, whose property at Sandwich they had recently damaged, and to appear before the Council to hear its judgement on their disputes.3 He died before July 1438, leaving as heir to his holdings in Sandwich his daughter Joan, wife of Thomas Palmer of Canterbury.4
