In Reply to: Re: Matthias Achenbach b. abt 1732 in Pa. by Sabine Achenbach of 63


I am the person that supplied Terry with the information about Matthias Achenbach.

This is what we know and how:

1. Terry and I are both descended from Anthony (aka. Anton or Antonius) Achenbach. This is readily traceable through the church and civil records of Lancaster, Berks and Schuylkill Counties in PA.

2. Anthony's death record, from St. John's Union Church in Friedensburg, PA, lists his birth date as 15 Sep 1749 in Dorf Eisen, Germany. This information comes from a typed transcript of the church records. I have not seen the original and can not be sure how good the transcription is.

3. We have tried to figure out what town might be with no success. We have searched the church records from a number of towns with names that are similar to this in the Nassau-Siegen region and the surrounding areas.

4. From the probate records we are fairly certain that Anthony was the son of Johann Matthias Achenbach (also written Achebach). Matthias lived in the northeast corner of Lancaster County. His estate was probated 23 Feb 1794. Matthias's wife was named Anna Margaretha.

5. We are confident that he was the same person as Mathias Achebach who arrived in Philadelphia on the ship Friendship and signed the oath of allegiance on 21 Oct 1754.

I don't know if that will help connect with any information that you might have. It has been a sore spot that I was unable to resolve Matthias's and Anthony's place of origin.

Hi Betty. I have a genealogical data concerning Matthias Achenbach and his descendents. I have 1 question concerning your lineage though. Church records show Anna Maria Achenbach (b. 1762; bp 18 Feb 1762 by Rev John Waldschmidt) m. John George Brunner (not George Peter). They were married 12 Feb 1782 by Rev Waldschmidt. John George Brunner (b. 20 May 1754 E. Cocalico twp., Lancaster County, PA; bp. 2 June 1754 Muddy Creek Reformed Church, East Cocalico, Lancaster County). John George did have a brothet John Peter Brunner who married Anna Maria's sister Eva Achenbach, but they didn't leave Lancaster County and I also have their dates and burial location. I have John George and Anna Maria having 6 children from the church records: Elizabeth (19 Dec 1782), Barbara (10 May 1784), Anna Maria (3 Feb 1786), John (31 July 1794), Eva (23 Feb 1797) and Lea (22 Feb 1800). From the dates, there could have been other siblings. You can email me directly if you would like the rest of the data that I have. Hope this helps.

Got their address when married from Dot Sutton Randall's request for birth certificate - it states
"I fix my place of birth as 105 Marcy Ave, Brooklyn, NY because I often visited my Grandmother there, with whom my parents were living at the time of my birth"

Paul,
There are Jenkins families in the 1800 and 1810 census of Kent Co., butnot in New Castle Co (save Appoquinimink in 1810) according to the bookindeces. Sometimes amazon.com indeces are better. The Beeson familieswere generally in northern New Castle Co. Of course, those who were headof a household may have had more reason to stay in Delaware, while thoseonly appearing on a tax list were more likely to leave to seek a betterlife in the big city.

Hi Tom,

Thanks for the correction. I do have a Pennsylvania birth for OscarDouglas JENKINS in all census records (1850-80) and his granddaughter's1926 application for membership into the DAR was where I got hisPhiladelphia birth place and exact date. She might have been working frompersonal knowledge since this was something for which she didn't give asource. Oscar Douglas JENKINS' 1880 census record gives the birth placeof both his parents in Delaware, that's why I started looking there.

If you learn of Ann's birth date, parents, and/or marriage information orjust the name of the Jenkins guy, I would like to know.

I certainly will let you know. I'm on a roll now, hopefully it won't belong.

Good luck with all your work.

Thanks, Paul.
I made a mistake. I was just trying to repeat what you had said which wasthat Ann and _____ Jenkins' son was born in Philadelphia, but I suspectthat you don't have original record proof of that, otherwise you wouldknow the parents. I would look in Philadelphia Friends Meeting recordsfirst. You'll need to check with the Friends Historical Library to findout how many Meetings were in Philadelphia or Chester or Delawarecounties and possibly check them all. From Humphry's "PennsylvaniaBirths [to] ... 1800" series, there are no Beesons born Chester orDelaware counties before 1800.


"Delaware Families 1787-1800" will be announced on the DGS web page, butit won't be published this year, hopefully, but not certain in 2003. Myaccepting the editorship of the next two issues of our Journal hasdelayed publication.


If you learn of Ann's birth date, parents, and/or marriage information orjust the name of the Jenkins guy, I would like to know.


By the way, if some source written a long ways away from Philadelphiasaid that Oscar Douglas JENKINS was born in "Philadelphia" in 1826, hecould really have been born just somewhere near Philadelphia, evenDelaware or New Jersey. I suspect you at least have some confirmation itwas PA from census records.


Unless your picture is of the key person in the bio Ann Beesons'sgrandfather, we cannot use the picture.

Thanks so much Tom. I'll put your check in the mail tomorrow. You've madethings very clear for me, which is no small task. I will definitely takeyour suggestion and look in Chester Co. Pennsylvania Friends Meetingrecords for Ann and _____ Jenkins' marriage since you say their son wasborn there.

I appreciate the information you've given me, as well as the liberalsprinkling of clues and leads. I'll look forward to using your finishedreference work. Will there be an announcement on the DelawareGenealogical Society web page when it's finished? I'll check back in themonths to come and see.

If you do happen to run across any information about this particularline, feel free to let me know and we can work out another financialarrangement. I'm happy to support research of this quality. It's vital topeople like me who are trying to find people who lived 3000 miles away!

Also, if I am successful (or if you run across documentation) in relatingmy Jenkins line with this Beeson line, would the publishers of thishistory have any interest in a copy of the picture I have? It was takenby the Chas. Naylor Photograph Rooms, 504 S. Second St.. Since I thinkthis is in Philadelphia I plan to check the city directories to see whenthis business was at this address to find an approximate date. I'd behappy to share it if they are.

Well, I've taken enough of your time. Take care and thanks again!

Paul,
Yes, the address is correct.


Note that Thomas died intestate so there was no will. The distributionaccount naming "Ann Beeson" was dated 17 Dec 1830.


Thomas was disowned 181?(Standing didn't supply exact date), so, yes, Annwould have been born before her Dad was disowned. Standing reports abirth date for Maria (18 Nov 1794), but not for the next child Ann, sothe birth is highly unlikely to be in the Wilmiongton meeting records asStanding was quite thorough. The family was of Brandywine Hundred indelaware for the 1800 census. There is a "Genealogy of the Beeson -Beason Family which he cites as a reference. It is not on the web listof references for HSD at http://www.hsd.org/Library_FamilyHistory.htm#B


The Jenkins reference does not seem to come from Standing (I justchecked). To find the source would take a search through my othersources or a more thorough search of Thomas Beeson's probate papers whichI'll have to do before we publish. This write-up was done when thestandards were not quite as high as they are today, so each of the olderwrite-ups has to be checked over before we publish.


There is a Babb genealogy which may be a source (seehttp://www.hsd.org/Library_FamilyHistory.htm#B)


I would suggest looking at some Chester County PA Friends Meetiningrecords for a marriage record of Ann Beeson to a Jenkins, since that'swhere their son was born.

Hi Tom,

3321 N. Rockfield Drive, Devonshire, Wilmington DE 19810-3238
Is this current? I'm hoping that this will cover a couple clarificationsof the material you sent me as well, since I don't know much about thesubject or the sources yet.
You wrote:

You say that since Ann Beeson is the person mentioned in her father'swill (not Ann Jenkins) that Standing may be wrong. Do you say thisbecause there would be such a short time between the distribution of theestate and her subsequent marriage to _____ Jenkins? I know there wouldonly have been about 9 months to get married and another 9 to have herson (May 1825 father's death - Nov 1826 son's birth), but to me thisdoesn't automatically disqualify the possibility. Are there things I'mnot considering?
You also wrote:
Since Thomas was disowned from the Quakers, there most likely is not abirth record for Ann. She may have become a Quaker later after shemarried Jenkins.
Since the citation says about Thomas that: "he dis 8 2m 181? for usingabusive..." (I assume that means bet. 1810-1819) then wouldn't he havebeen a member of a meeting in c1800, around the time of Ann's birth? So Iwonder if there is in fact a birth record for her - but maybe theyexpunge family records of those disowned by the church?
Thanks for your help!

This is not my family, but somethng I prepared for a client to be used inteh Delaware families Project. A final draft of this write-up willappear in a book to be published. the final draft will correct anyerrors from earlier drafts.


Many of the abbreviations appear on http://delgensoc.org/dfabbre.html andreferences on http://delgensoc.org/dfref.html.


Since Ann's information is not referenced, it comes from the source"StandingW 22" mentioned just after "(children)" This source isdescribed as such:

[author calls this v.2; StandingN, v.1]


Since Thomas Beeson died intestate, there is not a will; but I justlooked up the distribution account and Ann Beeson, not Ann Jenkins, ismentioned.

Hi Tom,
Thank you so much for your swift reply. I have to tell you that after Iwrote you I saw other links that indicated that you are a professionalgenealogist, and I don't want to take advantage of your time if this iswhat you do for a living. I am used to corresponding with other hobbyistslike myself and assumed you were one too!
So I saw your home page and saw also that you charge a $350.00 retainerto start research. I don't think I can go that route, but is it possibleto set up something where I can pay you for information you already have?In going over what you sent me I have a few questions that you may beable to answer without more research. If this is a way you'd rather notwork, please know that I understand completely and I still appreciateimmensely the clues you've given me.
I'll just write the questions and you can tell me how much you'd chargeto answer them if you'd like.
--------------------
1) I see that Thomas' b 10 7m 1767 estate went in part to Ann BEESON whenhe died on 8 May 1825. Do you know if she was named specifically as AnnBEESON in that will, and if her residence was mentioned? If so, thatwould give me a very narrow time frame (and place) to search for hermarriage to ? Jenkins (I do not know his first name), as her son OscarDouglas JENKINS was born on 28 Nov 1826 in Philadelphia.
2) I don't understand many of the sources, but I assume they are Quakerabbreviations that I can look up on the web myself - I won't trouble youwith that. But the entry for v. Ann m ______ JENKINS; is unsourced,I think. Do you know where that bit of information might have come fromand where I could look to find it myself?
---------------------
Thanks again for your help, Tom. However you want to proceed is fine withme.
Sincerely,
Paul Welcomer

I have an Ann who married a Jenkins as daughter of Thomas and Kesia(BABB) BEESON in the writeup below. Do you know Jenkins first name orAnn's approximate year of birth? What other children did they have?There is not enough information yet to link Ann to Thomas with assurance.

Hello Tom,

I amdescended from an Ann Beeson who I have just discovered was born inDelaware. What I know about her is that she married a man named Jenkinsand had a son Oscar Douglas JENKINS in Philadelphia in 1826. I have aphotograph of Ann in much later years in what looks like Quaker garb.
I see in your submission a David, Thomas and Rebecca Beeson, all of whommight have been of the right age to have been one of Ann's parentsbetween perhaps 1788-1808. I'm hoping you know something about my Ann andwould be willing to share information. I'd certainly be happy to tell youwhat I know of this line if it connects to yours. Thanks for your time.

Beeson Genealogy, by Jasper Luther Beeson:

From William Penn to Mary Pennington, and from her to Edward Beeson,March 10, 1703---one thousand two hundred and fifty acres of land tobe located in Pennsylvania. Later, Edward Beeson obtained warants forseven hundred ninety two acres of land in Bradford Township, now WestBradford. This land was assigned to Richard Buffington and others, afterit was surveyed in 1711. The Beesons were, at that time, related tothe Penns and Penningtons, as well as to the Buffingtons.

From 1650 to 1680 there lived in Stoke, England, and afterwards atNottingham, a Beeson who had sons as follows. Edward, Richard,Isaac, and William. William returned to England. His children were:(See William (4).

Signature followed name Edward Beeson (0).
(This signature was traced from an assignment dated May 18, 1711,the original is on file in the archives of the Historical Societyof Pennsylvania, at Philadelphia. A photostatic copy of it may beobtained from the society.

Copy furnished by C. E. Beeson, of Pittsburgh, Pa.)

"Edward Beeson (1) came to America around the year
1682, he being at that time, so far as can be
determined at present, in the neighborhood of thirty
years of age. Early deeds and records advise that he
was a "planter" or "yeoman," and these same papers,
which are the first information of him, give his
residence as "Irishtown," New Castle County, Delaware.
This village was situated on the ground now being a
part of the ninth ward of the city of Wilmington."--C.
E. Beeson.

Byron A. Beeson, in his publication, "The Beeson
Family," states, "Edward Beeson and his wife, Rachel
Pennington, came to America, from Lancaster, England,
during 1682 or 1684, among the Penn emigrants, settling
in West Nottingham, Chester County, Pennsylvania."

Edward Beeson of Fon-du-Lac, Wisconsin, in his
History of the Beeson Family in America, 1890, says,
"In 1682 there came to America with the emigrants of
William Penn, from Stoke Lancashire, England, Edward
Beeson and wife, Rachel Pennington, with their four
sons and several daughters. They settled in New
Castle, below Philadelphia and remained there for a few
years."

According to good authorities his brother, Richard,
accompanied him, and later returned to England.

It is likely that Edward Beeson was not a Quaker,
as his name has not been found in the records of that
church, though he lived among Quakers, and all of his
children were of that faith.

"Among the earliest records found of Edward Beeson
(1) in America is in the Pennsylvania archives 2nd
Series, Volume XIX, page 245, in the Minutes of the
Meetings of William Penn's Commissioners of Property
Sitting at Philadelphia, 14th, 11 month, 1701"--C. E.
Beeson. This is a petition of "Cornelius Epson for
himself and several others to the number of twenty
families to make settlement on a tract of land about
half-way between the Delaware and Susquehannah," etc.

On 7th, 1 month, 1701-2 land warants were issued to
these petitioners, among whom was Edward Beeson, who
obtained 980 acres of land located in the southwestern
corner of Chester County, Nottingham township,
Pennsylvania, near the Maryland Line. The land survey
was made 3d month, 1702.

"Here he made himself a new home and lived until
his death, which occurred March 1714." C. E. Beeson.

Edward Beeson's name appears in the following deeds
and conveyances: April 28, 1702, a deed from Hance
Peterson to Edward Beeson, 266 acres in Brandywine
Hundred on the Delaware River, near Treedy Hook is
recorded in Deed Book B, Vol. 2, p. 171, New Castle
County, Delaware.

By a deed also in the same county, Edward Beeson
(1) conveyed this same land to his son, Edward (2) on
Jan. 7,1709-10.

Deed Book F, 5, page 546 Philadelphia, shows the
following: "Daniel Wharley, of Giles Chalfont, County
of Buck's England, and Mary, formerly Mary Pennington
(Half-sister to William Penn's first wife) conveys 1250
acres to Edward Beeson, of Irishtown, in the county of
New Castle, Planter, mar. 10 and 11, 1703."

"9br., 16th, 1706 granted to Edward Beeson liberty
to settle on a tract near Nottingham, in which Tho.
Taylor was settled, and the refusal of it is Promised
him. Given him for this under Ed. S., T. S. and J.
L.'s hands." (Initials of the three Commissioners.)

On Sept. 28, 1709, a warrant was granted to Edward
Beeson for 799 1/2 acres of land.

In the Masuscript Department of the Historical
Society of Pennsylvania is a warrant, this paper is
dated "Phila. X br. 14, 1709." It is the original
order of Jacob Taylor to Isaac Taylor, Surveyor of
Chester County, to survey and lay out to Edward Beeson
the 799 1/2 acres as above mentioned, the back of which
is endorsed in the handwriting of Edward Beeson as
given below.

This eightenth day of May, 1711, I Edward Beson of
Nottingham do asine over to Richad Buefingtong,
Benjamin Hickman, Thomas Buefintong and Richard
Buefontong Juner all of westown In the county of
Chester, this with in warrant.

Ass witness my hand


Edward Beeson."

Note that the name is spelled both Beson and
Beeson.


Records concerning the early Beesons are to be found mainly in thePennsylvania Archives and in the archives of the Society ofFriends or Quakers. The method of dasting the documents and familyrecords was in accordance with "The great law or body of laws of theProvince of Pennsylvania and territories there unto belonging, pastat an assembly held in Chester (Alias Upland) the 7th day of ye 10thmonth, called December 1682, "as shown in the following section:
"35. And be it further enacted by the authority aforesaid that thedays of the week and the months of the year shall be called as inScripture and not by heathen names (as is Vulgarly used) as the firstsecond and third days of ye week, and the first second and third monthsof ye year, and the beginning with ye day called Sunday and theMonth called March." Prior to the year 1752 the year began withMarch 25, which was 1st month, 1st day, then, 1st month 8th day wasApril 1, 10th month was December, and 11 month the January following.This form of dating has caused confusion and errors intranslation both the number of the month into names, and in thenumber of the day of the month.

On the 7th day of the 1st month 1701/02 land warrants were
issued to these petitioners among whom was Edward Beeson, who
obtained 980 acres of land located in the southwestern corner of
Chester County in Nottingham Township near the Maryland line.
The land survey was made during the 3rd month 1702.

Hance Patterson deeded 266 acres of land in Brandywine
Hundred on the Delaware River near Tready Hook to Edward Beeson
on Apr. 28, 1702.

The original order of Jacob Taylor to Isaac Taylor, Surveyor
of Chester County to survey and lay out 799-1/2 acres of land
granted to Edward Beeson is dated at Philadelphia 1Oth month 14th
day 1709. The endorsement in the handwriting of Edward Beeson on
the back of this warrant is as follows:

"This eighteenth day of May 1711 I Edward Beson of
Nottingham do asine over unto Richard Buefingtong Benjamin
Hickman Thomas Buefintong and Richard Buefontong Juner all of
westown In the county of Chester, this with in warrant.

Edward Beeson"

The 266 acres in Brandywine Hundred on the Delaware River
was deeded from Edward Beeson to his son, Edward, on January 7,
1710.

It may be of interest to know that the will of
Edward Beeson was the first will to be recorded in
Chester County, Pa. Prior to that time all wills
recorded from that section of the country had to be
taken to Philadelphia. The will is as follows:

"I Edward Beeson of Notingham, being laid on a bed

BEGINNINGS IN AMERICA

Most of the Beesons now living in the United States are
descendants of one Edward Beeson 1. It is said that he came to
America in 1682 or 1684 on one of the William Penn voyages from
Stoke, Lancaster, England, and settled in New Castle, below
Philadelphia.

The family is of English origin and the name a corruption of
Beeston, which is an old family of or near Leeds, England.
Lineages can be traced back to the fifteenth century in the
personage of Thomas Beeston of Beeston, a small village near
Leeds, down through his great-great-grandson, Sir George Beeston,
who was living in 1595. The Coat of Arms born by both the Beeston
and Beeson families is the same and is of the ancient family
seated at Cheshire at a very early period - blazoned, "Argent, a
bend between six bees sable. Crest, on a mount Vert a Castle, or
issuing there from an arm embowed brandishing a sword."

Tradition states that the Beesons were of French origin, and
that there was an officer in the army of William the Conqueror
named Bezon. After the Norman conquest, he became an officer in
the Royal Guard. His descendants settled in the Isle of Man,
where one of them married a daughter of the ruler of the island.
After the Norman conquest, he became an officer in the Royal
Guard. His descendants settled in the Isle of Man, where one of
them married a daughter of the ruler of the island. He afterwards
returned to Lancashire, where his descendants became numerousand can still be found.

Edward Beeson was not the first of that surname to come to
America. Capt. Thomas Beeson settled in Maryland prior to 1657
and was a Burgess from Anne Arundel County to the House of
Assebly held at St. Marys. His will was recorded in 1679 in Anne
Arundel Co. and shows sons John, William, and Thomas and a
daughter Martha, wife Hester. He also had a daughter, Ann, who
married Nicholas Gassaway. Nothing further is known of this
family. There was also a Thomas Beeson who owned land in York
Co., Maine in 1676 and nothing further is known of him.

The earliest known documentary evidence of Edward Beeson in
America is a record dated the 14th day of the 11th. month 1701
when he and several others petitioned William Penn's
Commissioners of Property sitting at Philadelphia to make
settlement on a tract of land about half way between the Delaware
River and the Susquehanna River.

On the 7th day of the 1st month 1701/02 land warrants were
issued to these petitioners among whom was Edward Beeson, who
obtained 980 acres of land located in the southwestern corner of
Chester County in Nottingham Township near the Maryland line.
The land survey was made during the 3rd month 1702.

Hance Patterson deeded 266 acres of land in Brandywine
Hundred on the Delaware River near Tready Hook to Edward Beeson
on Apr. 28, 1702.

The original order of Jacob Taylor to Isaac Taylor, Surveyor
of Chester County to survey and lay out 799-1/2 acres of land
granted to Edward Beeson is dated at Philadelphia 1Oth month 14th
day 1709. The endorsement in the handwriting of Edward Beeson on
the back of this warrant is as follows:

"This eighteenth day of May 1711 I Edward Beson of
Nottingham do asine over unto Richard Buefingtong Benjamin
Hickman Thomas Buefintong and Richard Buefontong Juner all of
westown In the county of Chester, this with in warrant.

Edward Beeson"

The 266 acres in Brandywine Hundred on the Delaware River
was deeded from Edward Beeson to his son, Edward, on January 7,
1710.

It is generally believed that Edward Beeson's first wife's
name was Rachel Pennington, whom he had married in England. It is
not known what relation she was to Mary Pennington Wharley, who
was a half sister to Guilema Maria Springett, the first wife of
William Penn. It has been said that they were half-sisters.
However, the will of Mary Pennington (mother of Mary Wharley)
proven In England Oct. 11, 1682 mentions only the following
children: sons William, Edward, and John and daughter, Mary, and
daughter, Guilema Maria Penn. Mary Proud, daughter of Sir John
Proude of Goodnestone Court, Kent, Married Sir William Springett
and had one daughter, Guilema Maria, who married William Penn.
The other children mentioned in the will are those by her second
husband, Isaac Pennington, son of Sir Isaac Pennington, Lord
Mayor of London.

Edward Beeson married a second time in America to Elizabeth.
One record gives her as a widow Holmes when she married Edward
Beeson. She has also been referred to as the daughter of Henry
Grubb. After Edward's death, she married Joseph Rich.

The will of Edward Beeson Is the first will to be recorded
In Chester County. Prior to that time, all wills from that part
of the country were recorded in Philadelphia. The will is as
follows:

"I Edward Beeson of Nottingham, being laid on a bed of
sickness & not knowing how the Lord may dispose of me as to my
natural Life therefore I do make this my last will & testament
and does declare all other will or wills made or done by me to be
void and of none effect, first my will Is that I be decently
buried & my funeral expenses and all debts be duly payd, 2ly. I

heirs one tract of Land Laying near Southampton in the County of
Bucks, containing 290 acres, 4ly I give to my son Richard and his
heirs one tract of Liberty Land containing 25 acres Lying on

Edward is to have which he pleased, also I give to my son William

Note. The method of dating the documents and family records
was in accordance with "The great law or body of laws of the
Provence of Pennsylvania and territories thereto belonging, past
at an assembly held in Chester (Upland) the 7th day of ye 1Oth
month called December 1682" as shown by the following section:
"35. And Be it further enacted by the authority aforesaid that
the dayes of the Week and ye months of the year shall be called
as in Scripture and not be Heathen names (as is vulgarly used) as
the first second and third days of ye week, and the first second
and third months of ye year, and beginning with ye Day called
Sunday and the Month called March."

Prior to the year 1752, the quaker year began with March 25,
which was 1st momth, 1st day. This form of dating has caused much
confusion and errors in translating both the number of the month
into names and in the number of the day of the month. In 1752,
January 1 became the 1st month, 1st day. Throughout the text,
dates given such as 4 mo. 4 da. would refer to the fourth day of
the fourth month in accordance with the foregoing. Where a date
is given as 2-1-1700, this refers to February 1, 1700.

Letter from Leslie W. Beason, Feb. 1, 1995, 721 Jappa Rd., Ely, IA 52227.

Edward Beeson, was born in about 1660 in or near Lancaster,England. He married Rachel Pennington in this locality in about 1680.They migrated from Lancaster, England to America in 1682 at whichtime Pennsylvania was being settled by William Penn and his followers,the persecuted Quakers.

Pennsylvania, comprising 48,000 square miles, had been granted toPenn by King Charles in payment for $80,000 owed by the Crown tothe Penn estate; and the Duke of York had given Penn a Quitclaim deedto Delaware. The two provinces were governed by one governor orgovernment even though Delaware was not originally settled by Quakers.Several thousands of settlers were already there--Swedes, Dutch,English, Germans, Hugenots. Four ships loaded mostly withQuakers came to Pennsylvania in 1681.

Edward and Rachel were favorable to the teachings fof Penn; and itis believed that they came to America with William Penn on the Ship"Welcome". Penn had about 100 Quakers with him when he left EnglandSeptember 1, 1682. He landed at New Castle, Delaware with abouttwo-thirds that number October 27, 1682. About one-third had died fromsmallpox on the trip.

Edward and Rachel left the ship at this landing and settled in thevillage of Irishtown, New Castle County, Delaware. They moved fromthere to Berkley County, Virginia where there was a settlementof Quakers. Finally they moved to Chester County, Pennsylvania. Recordsshow that a land grant of 980 acres in Chester County,Pennsylvania was made to Edward Beeson in 1701. His will, dividing thisproperty among his heirs, dated in 1713, states that he wasthen living at Nottingham, Chester County, Pennsylvania.

Edward and Rachel were parents of three sons and one daughter. AfterRachel's death Edward married Elizabeth by whom he was the fatherof two daughters.
