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
Give to my son Edward & his heirs 142 acres & a nald of Land
Laying by nessamoney, 3rd, I give unto my son Richard and his
heirs one tract of Land Laying near Southampton in the County of

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.
