**Descendants of Alexander Beall, 1649-c1744) Immigrant to Maryland, Roberta Hull, 1999, Beall Family Association, Portland, OR.
“William Beall, the eldest son of Alexander Bell and his first wife, whose name is not known, is believed to have been born in about 1683/84 in Calvert County, Maryland. He was later married in Prince George's County, Maryland to Elizabeth (Magruder) Beall, the widow of Ninian Bell/Beall. Elizabeth was the daughter of Samuel and Sarah (Beall) Magruder. She apparently had two children, a son named Samuel and a daughter named Mary, from her first marriage to Ninian Bell/Beall.”
“When William's father, Alexander, died, William inherited his father's dwelling plantation. This plantation consisted of that portion of "Neighborhood" and "Largo" that was situated on the southwest branch of the Patuxent River. William's brother, Ninian, received the residue of "Largo." William and Ninian later sold these two plantations, consisting of approximately 696 acres, to John Contee for 300 pounds sterling on 17 May 1745.”
“William, who resided in that portion of Prince George's County, Maryland that was formed into Frederick County, Maryland in 1748, also owned plantations called "William and Elizabeth," "Hills and Dales," "Friendship Enlarged," "Discontent," and "Fat Oxen." William died in 1756 in Frederick County, Maryland. His will, which was dated 18 January 1756, was admitted for probate before the Frederick County Court on 30 March 1756.”
