    The name of Florence, (presumably derived from her grandmother Florence Stallenge) continued through her daughter and granddaughter, and eventually became the name of Florence Court in Ireland (now owned by the National Trust).
    Florence is identified in BE1883 as "dau. and co-heir of Dennis Rolle, Esq."
    Her coheiress was probably Margaret who married (1654) Sir John Acland, 3rd Bart (d 1655).
    Presumably the Lady Rolle, wife of Sir John Rolle, K.B., who has a memorial at Tawstock church, Devon dated 1705:
    memory of
    The Lady Rolle, wife of Sr John Rolle knight
    of ye Bath, ye purity of whose mind wch appear
    ed in all ye dutys of a virtuous life, made

    And with ye heavenly host in confort joyn
    Pitys ye senseless folly of mankind
    While she enjoys an endless peace of mind
    This monument was erected by her daughtr
