Yes, the Becraft's were very early settlers in Maryland, coming from England. However to find your particular line we need to look at your grandparents and find their parents. Do you have access to any of the Genealogy sites online...Ancestry.com, Genealogy.com, Rootsweb is a free site but they don't have census records. You should first try to find your grandparents in a census. Then find their parents from that information. If you have access to any kind of Genealogy Library near your home you can look for several books on the Becraft lines. The library could order in some of them for you to look at and copy anything pertinent.
Peter Becraft is the most likely ancestor. He was in Maryland in the 1700's. I am from his great grandson, Benjamin Becraft.
