He may have been the John Beals who came to America in1677 with the John Fenwick Colony but this has not been proven.

John was in Chester Co., PA by 1689. But: "in a

court case in Chester County in 1691, John testified that he had plowed the piece of land in question fourteen years earlier--i.e., 1677. Thus we know that he was in Chester County by then."

He announced for the second time his intentions to marry 1 Nov 1682 at Chester Monthly Meeting, PA to Mary CLAYTON (1665-1725), the daughter of William Clayton and Prudence Lanckford.

Although illiterate he was the constable of Ashton Township, Chester Co., PA in 1694. In 1711, John was residing in Nottingham, PA when his son John Jr. was married.

His will was made 11 Aug 1726 at Nottingham and proved 17 Dec 1726. He is buried in the East Nottingham Friends Burial Ground in Chester Co., PA [now in Cecil Co., Maryland]

From Thomas Hamm: "After his marriage, John Beals entered the civil and religious life of Chester Co., in a modest way. By 1684, he had taken up land in Aston Twp, Chester Co. Tradition also has it that he served as a surveyor, although his illiteracy makes this doubtful. He served the Co court as a juror, although his company may not always have been of the best character. In 1693 he served as security for the behavior of one John Powell, who had been brought before the court for drunkenness and porfanity "allso attempting to ride over several Indian women and bei ng withheld drew his knife threatened to rip them up." A year later, however, John became the constable to Aston Twp. He also occasionally served on the committees of his monthly meet ing of Friends. John himself was a conscientious Quaker, as a 1694 court case shows. John' s neighbor Joseph Richard had built a fence on John's land, for which the court allowed Joh n damages of thirty shillings. Having won his point at law, John refused the damages, sayin g that he would move his own fence so "that they might live together lovingly for the future. "

In 1701 John joined a number of other Chester Co., Friends, including his brother-in-law James Brown and Henry Reynolds, in obtaining a grant of land known as the Nottingham Lots. This land lay in what was then considered to be part of Cheste r Co., but which the survey of the Mason-Dixon Line in 1767

placed in Cecil Co., Maryland. John's share of the grant was one thousand acres. After moving to Nottingham, John and Mary become increasingly active in Quaker affairs. John was appointed an overseer for the Nottingham meeting, charged with detecting deviati ons from the Discipline of Friends among the membership, while Mary also held a number of offices. John's accomplishments are all the more impressive because we know that he was lame for most of his later life."

John Beals was the son of John & Mary Clayton Beals of Chester County, Pennsylvania. We are indebted to Bill Putman who has researched this family extensively and provided us with a large packet of material.

Sarah Bowater was of English descent. She was a probable niece of John & Frances Corbet Bowater and was daughter of Thomas & Sarah Edge Bowater. Family records showing her as granddaughter of John & Frances Corbet cannot possibly be right as the dates do not fit! Sarah's birthdate is contemporaneous with those of the children of John and Frances Corbet Bowater. John & Thomas were both involved in land purchases in Chester County, Pennsylvania, beginning as early as 1685. John had arrived in America in 1677 and held a number of religious visits to Friends Meetings on the eastern shore of Virginia in 1677 and 1678. He was imprisoned in London from 1681 to 1683 for his religious beliefs. John presented a certificate at Philadelphia Monthly Meeting on November 4, 1684. Thomas had immigrated to America the year before. He is shown as father on Sarah's marriage certificate. John Beals born 1/20/1686 Chester Co, Pa died about 1745 Virginia Sarah Bowater born 8/17/1688, Chester Co, Pa died 1777 York County, Pa

 	Married: 8/14/1711 Chester MM, Chester County, Pennsylvania

Children: Sarah Beals born 5/29/1713 Chester Co, Pa; married John Mills, Jr. Mary Ann Beals born about 1715; married (1) Thomas Hunt, (2) William Baldwin John Beals born 2/17/1717 Chester Co, Pa; married Margaret Esther Hunt, sister of Thomas Hunt (More below) Thomas Beals born 3/14/1719 Chester Co, Pa; married Sarah Ankram Phebe Beals born 1720 Chester Co, Pa; married (1) Charles Canaday (2) Robert Sumner Prudence Beals born about 1723; married Richard Williams at Fairfax MM in Virginia (more at bottom of the page) Bowater Beals born about 1725; married Sarah Cook at Warrington MM in York Co, Pennsylvania (More below) Hannah Beals born 1/31/1729; married Azariah Pugh in Virginia Rachel Beals born 1730.

History of Beals and Bowaters in Pennsylvania John Beals Sr and Jr The will of John Beals [Sr.father of this John], written the 11th day 8th month 1726 in Nottingham, proven Dec 17, 1726, verifies the names of John Beals, Jr.'s first five children. Abstract: To eldest son John, bed and furniture and 5 pounds, he paying to his five children; viz Sarah, John, Thomas, [Mary] Ann and Phebe, 10 shillings when of age. To daughter Mary Harrold 8 [pounds], she paying to each of her children, viz Elizabeth, Rachel, Jonathan and Richard 10 shillings each when of age. To son Jacob, 12 pounds, he paying to each of his 4 children, viz John, Jacob, Mary and William 10 shillings when of age. To daughter Patience Jones the 8-15 pounds that is due of bond of her husband and five pounds more paying to their 4 children, viz Judith, Mary, Sarah and Charity 10 shillings each, when of age. To James Wright 40 shillings. To kinswoman Mary Davis of Philadelphia 20 shillings. Executors: sons John and Jacob. Witnesses: James McMullin, Wm. House.

John Beal is listed as one of the 24 original landholders in Concord in 1681 (see Land). A deed in Aston Township 5 Dec 1688 between a Richards father and son mentions a tract in Aston bounded by land of ...John Beales... . This is shown on "Holme's Map of the Province of Pennsylvania, with Names of Original Purchasers from William Penn, 1681." along Chester Creek in "Ashton Township." We don't find a Beal listing in Concord on that map. John Beale [Sr.] witnessed a land deed on 10 March 1691 in Chichester in Chester County. In 1695 John Beales witnessed another deed for land bounded by Chester Creek. In 1709 John Beals witnessed another deed in Chichester bounded by Broad Street and the Great Road. We do not know if the Chichester John Beals is the same as the one owning land along Chester Creek but the distances between the townships was not great and he might have witnessed for friends who lived nearby. We did not find a deed for the Beals themselves, but then we do not find the Woodwards early deeds in the land records, only in the court records. Chichester and Chester Townships were located right along the coast in present day Delaware County (See Chester County Map Page) as was Ashton Township in 1681. An Abraham Beals witnessed a deed in 1696 for land along Chester Creek. He was probably a brother of John, Sr.. A deed in 1708 refers to land of Abraham Beales that he had purchased of John Simcock. This land was in Edgmont. John and Thomas Bowater The Bowaters also lived in Edgmont. John Bowater purchased 50 acres in Edgmont 24 November 1685 and resold it on 9 August 1704 to Joseph Baker, husband of Martha Woodward. A tract of 250 acres was sold for 20 pounds to John Bowater of Chester, farmer, on 24 September 1697. On 14 December 1697 John Bowater sold 100 acres for 10 pounds in Middletown, bounded by Ridley Creek, that he had previously purchased. On 10 March 1700 a 150 acre tract was sold for 25 pounds to John Bowater of Middletown, yeoman. Thomas Bowater was also involved in land transactions: he purchased 100 acres in Edgmont on Ridley Creek on 2 March 1695, but released his interest on 15 September 1697. In 1711 a lease in Goshen describes the tract lying by land of Thomas Bowater and others.

On 4 March 1705 John Bowater is deceased and his widow Frances Bowater of Westtown granted his 400 acre plantation in Westtown for 350 pounds to George Smedley. Analysis of acreage and names of neighbors shows that the 400 acre plantation was probably composed of the 150 acre and 250 acre tracts above. Probably the names of the areas were changing, not the location. On 21 December 1708 widow Frances Bowater bought a 115 acre tract called "Podington" located on the west side of the Delaware River and bounded partially by Chichester Creek. She sold Podington 22 August 1713.

Frances wrote her will 29 January 1720 and names daughters but does not name Sarah - hence we know those family records showing Sarah as daughter of Frances and John are not correct!

Abstract of Will of Frances Bowater (Book A, page 110, Chester County, Pa): "Frances Bowater of Concord, widow. January 29, 1720/1. 12/28/1720/1. To daughter Mary Ails �10. To daughter Eliza Pusey �5. To daughter Ann Chandler �16. To daughter Eales [Alice] Mendenhall remainder of household goods. To daughter Phebe Scarlet �25. To grandson Saml Pyle �4 at 21, to be paid his mother Ealse Mendenhall. Executors: sons in law, Wm. Pusey, Moses Mendenhall. Witnesses: Wm. Brinton, Nathan Newlin, Jean Brinton."

John & Sarah Bowater Beals named their first two sons John & Thomas, John for John Beals, Sr. and Thomas for Thomas Bowater.

After John, Jr., died in 1745, Sarah Bowater Beals transferred back to Pennsylvania on a certificate on 4/25/1748 to Warrington Monthly Meeting in York County where she married Alexander Underwood. She was accompanied by son, Bowater Beals, who married Sarah Cook, granddaughter of Alexander Underwood. More Beals History In 1871 Gersham Perdue wrote a letter to a William Foster outlining the history of the Beals family. (The letter was published in an article "Early Settlement of Friends in N. C.: Traditions and Reminiscences II," The Southern Friend) Perdue writes: "From that worthy man, John Beals, descended a very large number say some thousands of the members of our widely extended Yearly Meeting of Friends in Indiana, Western ?, and Iowa (added by editor - and now 1894, Kansas and Oregon and Wilmington, Ohio) and some yet remain in North Carolina and Philadelphia Yearly Meetings. On many of these descendants precious gifts in the ministry have been conferred...From Chester County, as it then was, John Beals, with his family moved to Monocacy, Carroll's Manor, Maryland. At what time, or how long they stayed at that place I have no account, but while here, son Thomas married, and from Monocacy they moved to Opequan, near Hopewell, near Winchester, Va. I find it told that John Beals died in the year 1745, three years before the family moved to North Carolina, but did not say where he died, I presume it was in Virginia." There are a couple of sources for Monocacy: Pioneers of Old Monocacy, the Early Settlement of Frederick County, Maryland 1721-1743 by Tracey & Dern, 1987. (A portion of this book is online at Pioneer Quakers of Monocacy.) The Beals genealogy is a little off in this book but it is interesting history. The Monocacy book also refers to Poverty in a Land of Plenty, Tenancy in Eighteenth Century Maryland by Stiverson, 1977. Carroll's Manor is not listed in that book but again it is good history.

In preparing the page for son Thomas Beals, we found several errors in dates in Perdue's letter. Above he implies that the family moved about 1748. In the minutes of Cane Creek Monthly Meeting set up in 1751 only Robert and Phebe Beals Sumner are mentioned as charter members but others are mentioned in the first 18 months after setup. Mentioned are Bowater Beals, Sarah Beals, Thomas Beals, John Mills (husband of Sarah, Jr.), Thomas Hunt (husband of Mary). Some of these witnessed a marriage 4/22/1752 so were there by that date.

John Beals, Jr., followed by certificate to New Garden Monthly Meeting on 5/27/1758. More on the Children of John and Sarah Bowater Beals John (III) and Margaret Hunt Beals We have a lot of information on this family but will only include an outline here. John Beals married Margaret Hunt, daughter of William and Mary Woolman Hunt, on 13 May 1738 at Hopewell Monthly Meeting. They had children: John Beals IV (b abt 1738 Va m (1)Sarah Dicks and (2)Susanna Johnson); Rachel Beals (m James Dicks); Ruth Beals (m. John Hoggatt); Lydia Beals (b abt 1739 m Christopher Hiatt); Hannah Beals (b abt 1745 m. (1) William Hoggatt and (2) Joseph Cloud); William Beals (b Aug 1743 m. (1)Rachel Green and (2) Rachel Johnson).

James and Rachel Beals Dicks had daughter Elizabeth Dicks who married Thomas Beard. Bowater and Sarah Cook Beals Bowater Beals married Sarah Ann Cook, daughter of Thomas and Mary Underwood Cook 10 Feb 1752 at Warrington MM, York County, Pa. Bowater Beals was received on certificate from Fairfax MM, Montgomery Co, Pa as noted at Cane Creek MM in North Carolina. Bowater Beals was recommended a minister at New Garden MM in North Carolina 1/30/1779. Their children are listed at New Garden MM (all as Beales): Ann (b 9/3/1755 NC m. Jacob Jackson);Ruth (b 17 Jun 1757 m Curtis Jackson); Phebe (b 23 Mar 1759 m John Jackson)(the three Jacksons were brothers, sons of Samuel); Thomas (b 12 Jun 1762); John (b 26 May 1764 m. Lois Branson); Jacob (b 27 Nov 1766); Nathan (b 25 Jan 1769 m. Esther Fisher); Mary (b 17 Jan 1771); Sarah (b 17 Aug 1776); Charity (b. abt 1778 m Benjamin Hoggatt).

There is a Branson/Cook Website with information on Lois Branson who married John Beals, son of Bowater.

Lydia Jackson, daughter of Jacob and Ann Beals Jackson m Joseph Thornbrough 6 Feb 1812 at Fairfield MM in Highland County, Ohio. Joseph was son of Joseph and Rachel Brown Thornbrough and granddaughter of Joseph and Ann Armfield Thornbrough. Richard and Prudence Beals Williams The location of the home of Richard and Prudence Beals Williams in North Carolina is shown on a map of the Battle of Guilford Courthouse. Richard Williams died there in 1781 from smallpox incurred from wounded British officers quartered in his home after the battle. Marvin Miller has submitted information on the Richard and Prudence Beals Williams family to the Rootsweb World Connect Project.

___________________________

THE BOWATER FAMILY The Bowater family was English. Early Bowaters were found throughout the western counties of Worcestershire, Warwickshire and Staffordshire. The particular Bowater Family that the John Bowater who came to Pennsylvania belonged to came from Worcestershire. John Bowater came to America first in 1677 and finally in 1684 to stay. His granddaughter, Sarah Bowater, married John Beals II. Phoebe Beals, daughter of John and Sarah Beals, married Charles Canaday. This is how the Bowater family ties in with this Canaday Family History. I have seen several other histories of the Bowater Family and some have some early generations that I have trouble corroborating. I will begin this short history with the first one I can positively identify, John Bowater. JOHN BOWATER SR. There is a reference in the London Public Records office on June 27, 1622 (fourth month old style) referring to a sale of two shares in the Virginia Company by Francis Carter to John Bowater. The John Bowater that came to America was born about 1629 and was married to Ann Carter, Francis Carter's daughter. Because of this, I feel the John Bowater mentioned in 1622 would have been his (John Junior) father. There is another reference of Francis Carter passing over nine additional shares in the Virginia Company to Bowater of London, Merchant' and others. The total was nine shares and Bowater received two. Assuming the John Bowater born in 1629 was the eldest son, John Bowater Senior would have been married about 1627 or 1628 and therefore probably was born in about the 1600 to 1605 time period. In order to have received shares, he would have had to be over the age of sixteen in 1622. He did not come to America, but remained in England. The family seems to have come from the Bromsgrove section of county Worcestershire. Roger Boone has found a record that John Senior died at Spelalfields, White Chapel, London. It was here that John Junior married Ann Carter, so they seem to tie in nicely. JOHN BOWATER JR. John Bowater, junior or some other numerical designation, was born in Bromsgrove, County of Worcestershire, England in about 1629. He was married about 1650 to Ann Carter, I think the daughter of Francis Carter. There is a record of the marriage at Spelafields Hamlet, Whitechapel, London. According to one source, Ann Carter was born in Bromsgrove in 1632. John and Ann had at least one child, Thomas, who was born in 1655. There may have been others, but if there were, they did not come to America, and I have no record of them. By the 1660s, John had become a follower of George Fox and his Quaker faith. He became a minister or at least traveled extensively spreading the faith.' In 1677, he sailed to America and held a number of Quaker Meetings on the eastern shore of Virginia from 1677 to 1678. The following is from a HISTORY OF CHESTER COUNTY: John Bowater visited Virginia. In a list of the names and places and Friends in America, where John Bowater was received and had meetings and held services for the Lord, the following are mentioned which are known to be in the section of Virginia (eastern shore) of which we speak: James River in Virginia, James River at Chuckatuck, Pagan Creek, Moody Creek in Accomak, Savidge Neck, Nesswatakes and Ochanack. John's wife Ann died on February 25, 1679 in Warwickshire, England. She is buried at the North Friends Burying Grounds. John remarried sometime about 1681 to Frances Corbet, daughter of William Corbet of Worcestershire, England. He then spent the next few years, 1681 to 1683, in prison in London for his religious beliefs. At the Dudley Monthly Meeting in Worcestershire, on May 21, 1684, John and his wife received certificates to transfer to the Philadelphia Monthly Meeting in America. His son Thomas Bowater had moved to America the year before. John Bowater and wife presented their certificates to the Friends Monthly Meeting at the Governor's House in Philadelphia on November 4, 1684 (9th month old style). John and Frances and their two young children, Mary and Elizabeth, joined the Chester, Pennsylvania Monthly Meeting on May 7, 1688. John Bowater as a minister established his own meeting, the Bowater Friends Meeting, at his home in Nether Providence, Middletown Township, Chester County. Meetings were held there until a new church was built in 1700 on lands of Joshua Hastings adjacent to John Bowater's land. The Meeting was still named after him. In July of 1702, the Bowater family moved to Williston (Weston), Pennsylvania and the old meeting house was renamed the Middletown Monthly Meeting. John was active in both church and community. He was on many church committees and on several Grand Juries. John Bowater died at his farm in Middletown Township, Chester County on November 4, 1704 (9th month old style) and his will, written on July 20, 1704, was proven in court on November 17, 1705 in Weston, Chester County. The will mentioned his wife Frances and five daughters. Frances lived another fifteen years and died in 1720 in Concord Township of Chester County. Her will was proven on December 28, 1720. The Following is what I know of the children of John Bowater. By his first wife, Ann Carter, I know of only one child: THOMAS BOWATER, This is our line and his life is covered in the following section. John and Frances Corbet Bowater had these children: ANN BOWATER born November 30, 1684 in England and died there February 25, 1685. MARY or MERRY BOWATER was born in Pennsylvania on August 25, 1685. She married Stephen Ailes. WILLIAM BOWATER born February 19, 1686 and died young. ELIZABETH BOWATER was born February 23, 1688. She married William Pussey and she died in 1740. JOHN BOWATER a twin born August 3, 1690. ANN BOWATER was the other twin born August 3, 1690. She was the second Ann, the first having died as an infant. She married William Chandler. ALICE BOWATER was born in 1692. She was married twice, first to Jacob Pyle and then to Moses Mendenhall in North Carolina. PHEBE BOWATER was born about 1694 and married Shadrack Scarlet. THOMAS BOWATER Thomas Bowater was born on May 10, 1655 in Bromsgrove, County Worcester in England. Most people researching on the line are assuming that this Thomas is a son of John and Ann Bowater. The age is right. However, there is no proof. He did join the Friends Meeting in Chester County in 1688 at the same exact time as did John and Ann Bowater. There is a reference on page 77 of THE HISTORY OF CHESTER COUNTY stating "...Thomas, whose relationship to them is unknown, produced his certificate (from Philadelphia to Chester) at the same time." In a later HISTORY OF DELAWARE COUNTY by Smith, on page 448 there is, "Thomas Bowater thought to be a brother to John a minister of Middletown." I am taking the line of least resistance and guessing that Thomas is indeed a son from John Bowater's first marriage. Thomas decided to come to America and in order to pay for his passage had indentured himself to one Francis Fincher. According to the ship's log or manifest, "Tho. Bowater out of Worcestershire, servant to ffrancis ffincher out of Woster City, glover, for three years." Thomas Bowater arrived in Philadelphia on the Delaware River on board the ship called BRISTOL COMFORT on the 28th day of the 7th month in 1683. In the old style this indicates he Arrived in September 1683. Thomas joined the Friends Meeting in Philadelphia on certificate dated in England March 14, 1683. After serving his three year indenture, he took up residence in Edgemont Township of Chester County. When he was 'free' and turned twenty-one, he married Sarah Edge on October 14, 1686. Sarah was another Quaker and was the daughter of John and Jane Edge. For more details on this family, see THE EDGE FAMILY HISTORY, which follows this history. They had two children, Sarah and Thomas. Sarah Edge Bowater died at a very early age on February 26, 1692 at the age of about thirty-five. On March 2, 1695/6, Thomas purchased 100 acres from John Fox in Edgemont Township in Chester County. In February of 1701, Thomas married a widow, Frances Barnet. They remained in Chester County until 1720 when they transferred to the New Garden Monthly Meeting also in Chester County, Pennsylvania. They took their two children with them. Thomas died probably in the 1720s and I have no idea when Frances died, but probably also in Pennsylvania. The following is all I know about the children of Thomas Bowater. SARAH BOWATER was born on January 17, 1688 in Chester County, Pennsylvania. She married twice. First to John Beals on September 14, 1711 in Chester County. John died in Frederick County, Virginia in 1746. Sarah remarried on February 2, 1748 to Alexander Underwood in Monocacy, Prince George's County, Maryland. After he died she moved with one of her children to York County, Pennsylvania where she died in 1765. Her life is covered in more detail in the preceding BEALS FAMILY HISTORY. THOMAS BOWATER JR. was born about 1690. He traveled with his family to Guilford County, North Carolina where he died in the early 1750s. I know nothing more of this Thomas Bowater.

John Beals1 d. 1726 John Beals married Mary Clayton, daughter of William Clayton and Prudence Lanckford, in 1684.1,2 He died in 1726.1

Bales implies that John Beals came with Fenwick on the Griffin in 1775, but Sheppard found no evidence of it. Notes attached to the FHL catalog entry for Bales seem to have more information than what Bales has in his book: The earliest known ancestor, John Beales, was born in England in 1650, and immigrated to America in 1675 settling in Salem, New Jersey. He came on the ship Griffin. Two years later in 1677 his name appears on the tax books of what is now Delaware Co., Pennsylvania, as a farmer. He died in East Nottingham, Maryland in 1726.3,4 John was an early settler in the lower part of Aston.1 Family Mary Clayton b. abt. 1666 Marriage* He married Mary Clayton, daughter of William Clayton and Prudence Lanckford, in 1684.1,2 Children
