The 1697 record for Rose Browne was a Kent County proceeding and no age was given. I saw a will dated aBOUT 1804 for a Prinxce Georges County Beall and he was referred to as a son of Scotch John Bealy deceased. In 1728 at Prince Georges a John Brown died and his daughter and heiress was back in :North Britain". Out of curiosity is there a section where numerous 17th century Bealls appear in Scotland? Have you ever come across Beall references of the 17th or 16th centuries at Orkney?
