About Sarah Beall


  • Maryland and Virginia Colonials: Genealogies of Some Colonial Families ... By Sharon J. Doliante
  • Pg.631
  • DR. JOHN PEERCE, SR., was likely b. in the first quarter of the 17th century, in England; d. bet. Apr. 14 and May 9, 1679 (dates of the writing and of the proving of his will), Calvert Co., Md. The only record we have of any wife of his, was when on Nov. 27, 1678, only four months before his death, he proved his right to 100 a. of land "for Sarah his wife's transporting her Selfe and Mary Gore into the province to inhabit", but Sarah was surely deceased by the following Apr. 14, when he wrote his will, making no mention of a wife.

  • Issue of Dr. John Peerce, Sr.:
    • I. John Peerce, Jr. (q.v.)
    • II. Martha Peerce
  • I. John Peerce, Jr. was probably born C1650 to 1655, and very likely in England; d. aft. June, 1687 and bef. Mar. 1700/1; m. possibly C1676, Calvert Co., Md., Sarah Sprigg, dau. of Thomas and Kathryne (Graves)-Roper Sprigg, Sr. She was probably b. C1658 to 1660, in Md.; d. bef. Nov. 25, 1736, Pr. Geo's Co., Md. She m. (2) aft. 1704, Enoch Combs, who d. bef. Mar. 9, 1726/7, Pr. Geo's Co.

  • Issue of John and Sarah (Sprigg) Peerce, Jr.:
    • (I.) Sarah Peerce, b. C1677, Calvert Co., Md.; d. bef. Nov. 28, 1761, Pr. Geo's Co., Md.; m. C1693 [Beall, op. cit., p. 149] James Be[a]ll, Sr., son of Alexander and Margaret (Ramsey) Bell, of St. Andrew's, Scotland. he was bapt. Feb. 5, 1652/3, St. Andrew's Church, Fife Co., Scotland; d. bef. Feb. 10, 1725/6, pr. Geo's Co., Md. After his decease, she m. (2) bef.

Issue of James and Sarah (Peerce) Beall, Sr., will be found (subpa) under the Neall family.
    • (II.) John Peerce (or, Pearce), III, may have been a couple of years younger than his sister, and therefore probably b. C1679, Calvert Co., Md.; d. intestate, 1766, Pr. Geo's Co., Md. [Ref: Mareen Duvall of Middle Plantation, by Newman, p. 106.] m. (1) probably C1701, but judging from the ages of his known children, we think he must have been twice married, with most or all of the children by the (2) marriage, presumably to Mary (Evans) dau. of John & Elizabeth Evans. Her father's will, Cotton, op. cit., vol. 2, p. 216. She signed as a witness to the 1727 deed to him from his mother, supra. (NOTE: the phraseology of the deed of gift from John's grandfather, Thomas Sprigg, Sr., to John's mother and himself, supra, in Mar., 1700-01, indicated that John was not then married, I.E., " ... for his feuture advantage & preferment in Marriage ..."- - but was bout to be, i.e., " ... John Pearce ye Only Sone of ye Said Sarah Pearce & his wife for and fureing her Naturall life or the Longer Liver ..."]
