A source states: "Ringworthy had been the residence of his grandfather, Richard, and his father William inherited the homestead there. Afterward, William, then living in Thornbury, indentured young Richard to 'John Lowle, glover, of Bristol.' (The same Lowell as Lowell, MA.) When the brothers, John and Richard Lowell and their father, Percival came to this country in 1639, they brought Richard Dole with them as a clerk. The Lowell family settled in Newbury, MA, and Richard Dole continued as a clerk in their employ for a time. After his service, Richard entered into great activity and enterprise and built his own business. Being a leather craftsman, he primarily made jerkins and boots for early settlers." He died in 1705 and is buried in the Old Burial Ground in Newbury.

From Directory of Ancestral Heads of New England Families 1620-1700 by Holmes: RICHARD, son of William, a tanner and grandson of Richard in Thornbury, Gloucestershire, Eng., was bapt. at Ringworth, Gloucestershire, in 1622, he came in 1639 to Newbury, Mass., apprenticed to John Towle (sic), a glover, he late in life removed to Rowley, Mass.
