NORMENT-WARD-BEALL of VA, DC, MD, AR, FL
Updated April 10, 2013
|About Our Family Research
This NORMENT family is from King and Queen and Caroline Counties in VA, settling in Reedy Mill before 1720. It is said they were Scotch Covenanters who came to America for religious freedom and I am seeking proof for this. In 1909 Clarence and Harry NORMENT, sons of Samuel (b 1821, son of William), attended a Scottish pride dinner.
These families lived primarily in DC, Carroll Co., Montgomery Co., Prince George's Co., Baltimore City, MD, Princeton and Little Rock, AR, and Orlando, FL. They were successful doctors, lawyers, businessmen, politicians, merchants, real estate developers & bankers.
Samuel NORMENT moved to Washington DC about 1846 and married a daughter of Ulysses WARD, a prominent merchant, publisher and minister. Richard moved to Princeton, AR before 1850 and then to DC about 1852 and married another daughter of Ulysses, Margaret. Ulysses' parents, John WARD and Mary Ann Eustatia FORBES were born in London, England, and came to the United States in 1770. Their first son, George, was born in Prince George's Co., MD in 1773. Their son Ulysses was born near Rockville, Montgomery Co., MD in 1792. He married Susan Verlinda BEALL, daughter of James & Mary, in Washington, DC in 1816. Their daughter Mary Ellen married Samuel NORMENT and Margaret Anna married his brother Richard Baxter NORMENT.
The Library of Congress has 62 of James Thomas WARD's diaries in their collection.
William and Polly (HARRIS) NORMENT are the parents of Samuel, Richard, Wilbur and their sisters Sarah GRAY, Susan WINFIELD, Mary Ellen KIMBROUGH, Lucy JONES, Jane Eliza McKENZIE THACH, Mariah A., and perhaps others not yet identified. William was convicted of raping a daughter in 1844 in Caroline Co. VA and served 18 years. The course of his prosecution and punishment are outlined in the 1846 petition transcribed on this site. We are still searching for the trial records in Louisa and Hanover counties, VA. Whatever his faults, if guilty, he certainly produced generations of descendants who are exceptionally brilliant, dynamic and altruistic.
William's father, Samuel, left William's children a number of slaves in his will. The children had to petition to keep their father or the commonwealth of Virginia from confiscating them to pay for his defense.
Most of the daughters moved to Princeton, Dallas Co., AR in the latter part of 1850 (see Susan NORMENT's journal on this site), where they married into prominent families and moved to other areas of AR.
The biosketch of J. T. WARD, 1882, states the WARDs had resided during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries in Yorkshire, England, being farmers by occupation, and about the beginning of the eighteenth century they removed to London.
The BEALL line is shown in various places with numerous errors. It can be traced using deeds to the property Godfather's Gift, which I have transcribed and posted.
The HARRIS family extends to Jamestown planters (see link).
I especially appreciate corrections, of which I'm sure there are depressingly many. I have photos and extensive articles not posted here that I would be glad to share with you.
I hope you enjoy this site and the years of dedicated research it represents.
