From The Founders of Anne Arundel and Howard Counties, pp. 101-103:

THE BEALE FAMILY

A Scottish family, with a ringing bell as its coat of arms, was early represented in our province.
The leader was a famous officer, Colonel Ninian Beale, born in Fifeshire, or near Edinburgh, about 1625. Having fought, in 1650, against Cromwell at Dunbar, he was captured and transported to Calvert County, Maryland.
This same immigrant was called the "Covenanter," whose zeal caused him in some way, to be mixed up with the killing of a Bishop Montgomery, in an effort to keep Episcopacy out of Scotland.
He came, in 1655, and located in Calvert County. Intelligent and of a strong character, he at once became a leader in the contests of that period.
He was with Colonel Coursey and Colonel William Stephens, "When they sent Captain Beale before them to find Captain Brandt." Information being delivered into his lordship's hands by Captain Ninian Beale, it was ordered to be entered in the Council book; and by his lordship's special command, power be given to Captain Ninian Beale, of Calvert County, to press man and horse anytime, upon urgent occasion, to give his lordship intelligence." ordered, also, at the same time, "that six men in arms, under Captain Ninian Beale, be commanded out to continue ranging between the head of the Patuxent, up to the Susquehanna, forth for discovery of the Indian enemy." Captain Beale, in 1689, signed the Declaration of Remonstrance, in which it was declared, that "All rumors of an Indian invasion, supported by Catholics, were found to be false."
For Captain Beale's services he was granted an estate that extended over several counties. He surveyed near the National Capitol, and upon one of his surveys, a number of Presbyterian families were induced to settle. One of his tracts was the "Rock of Dumbarton." Geoirgetown stands upon this survey. There was another one at Bennings, and still another at Collington, Prince George County. Here was located Ninian Beale, Jr., the testator of 1710, who named only two children, Mary and Samuel. His sister, Jane, daughter of colonel Ninian and Ruth Moore, married Colonel Archibald Edmonson, whose daughter, Ruth Edmondson, married Rev. John Orme, who married Elizabeth Johns, whose daughter, Charlotte Orme, becaue Mrs. Daniel Douglass. Colonel Ninian died, 1717, age ninety-three years.

Died intestate.


Research Notes: Husband - Captain Richard Owings "the Settler"

This researcher's note from 5 July 2014:

I find it likely that Richard Owings had two wives, both named Rachel. If I am right, it might be thus:
1) Racheal Roberts, m. abt 1682 in England or Wales. She was daughter of Robert Pugh (aka Pugh Roberts/Robert Pugh/Robert ap Hugh)
2) Rachel Beale/Beall, m. 4 Apr 1698 in Dorchester, Massachusetts.

This scenario would make Racheal Roberts the mother of the first set of children (Rachel Owings, Catherine Owings and possibly Richard Owings (Jr.), depending upon the latter's birthdate). Rachel Beale would be the mother of all the others.

As far as I can determine, other researchers are not in agreement about which Rachel was Richard Owings' wife. Most assume that there was only one woman named Rachel. I am taking a more creative approach, as yet not disproven, and am proposing that there were two women who happened to have the same first name. It makes a better story. If it was so, all that is in question is the timing of marriages & births.

Source http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=:a41513&id=I0192 lists two wives:
1) Rachel Roberts m. 1682
2) Rachel Beale b. 1662, England, m. 1690 in Maryland

------------
Several sources mention that Richard Owen was named after Richard Davies of Welshpool, Montgomeryshire, who was a famous Quaker minister. Richard Davies visited Owen Humphrey (Richard's father), along with Owen's brothers Samuel and John, in Llwyngril in 1662 and attests to their faithfulness and that of others in the Quaker community there.

A : Richard Owen\\Owings, born in Llanllugan, Montgomeryshire, Wales in 1659, Carpenter, Capt, Md Militia 1695, died in Baltimore City, Md, the 14 November 1716, married Rachel Robert, in 1682 in Wales (born in 1663 in Llwyn-dedwydd, Wales and died in 1729 in Baltimore Co., Md).
(Notes : Although it is unclear as to absolute proof pertaining to Richard's Father; I believe it to be Owen Humphrey of Lwynn-du, Merionethshire, Wales. The evidence is circumstantial, however there is a great deal of it.) He had 8 children :

B.1 : Rachel Owings, born in Wales in 1683, died in Baltimore County, Md in May 1761.
B.2 : Richard Owings 2, born in Baltimore County, Md 1688, died in Anne Arundel Co., Md in 1736.

Excerpt from http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~paxson/southern/owings.html - M.J.P. Grundy, 26 Jul 2008:

"Our Richard Owen1 identified himself as a carpenter, first of Anne Arundel County, then of Baltimore County. One source says he was born in Virginia and died before 11 February 1726/7. He was married to Rachel (__) by 1701/2.[1]

"As with most of our colonial Maryland ancestors, we find traces of them in legal records of various kinds. For example, Richard had borrowed considerable money from Christopher RANDALL , that was listed in the latter's estate inventory 20 Mar. 1684/5. I don't know if the loans were in order to purchase real estate, or for some other reason. Richard made several real estate transactions. On 12 September 1685 he bought the tract "Range" from Thomas LIGHTFOOT and his wife Rebecca. It was in Anne Arundel County about a mile from the head of the Anne Arundel River, by the line of Richard WARFIELD's land, by a tract called the "Marsh". The next fall Richard sold 384 acres to Jabez PIERPONT, a planter of Baltimore County, for 4,500 pounds of tobacco. Richard's wife released her dower right in it. On 10 October 1694 Richard had surveyed for him 450 acres on the west side of the Patapasco, north side of Col. TAYLOR's land. On 13 March (or August) 1704 Richard conveyed 225 acres out of the total 450 acre "Owen's Adventure" to Col. Edward DORSEY for 40. The tract had originally been patented 10 November 1695. On 1 June 1708 Richard sold another 100 acres from "Owings Adventure" [notice the spelling variations as officially recorded] to Richard ACTON, planter. This tract had been granted to Richard by Lord Baltimore 3 April 1700. Richard's wife, Rachel, gave her consent. On 1 June 1708 Richard owens of Baltimore County, carpenter, conveyed 100 acres, which was part of a larger tract, with Rachel's consent, to Richard ACTON, planter. Another land grant was made to Capt. Richard Owings on 10 September 1725 consisting of 480 acres in Baltimore County named "Owens Outland Plains".[2]


On 16 October 1697 the Assembly passed an "Act appointing Rangers for the defence of this Province". It decreed that fifteen men be raised "to strengthen the Garrison and frontiers at Potomak". They were to be raised proportionately from Anne Arundel, Calvert, St. Mary's, and Charles Counties. The colonels were to "impress them, but if Volunteers can be afterwards procured" the draftees could be released. Richard Owen of Anne Arundel County was made Captain over the new recruits, with Giles HILL of St. Mary's County, the Lieutenant. Two weeks later Richard signed a receipt for arms and equipment received from the Governor: 1 brass "lanthorne", 2 carbines and belts, 2 bayonettes and belts, 2 pair of pistols, 1 brass compass, 1 "prospective" glass, 30 flints, 2 Bibles, 1 Whole Duty of Man, 5 "Catuch boxes" and belts, and $1.00.[3]

"That was not the extent of Richard's military career. He also appeared on a list of soldiers under the command of Col. Ninian BEALE from 6 February 1699 to 6 May 1700. For this he was paid at 3/4d per day, for a total of 15.03.04.[4]


"The only other fact about Richard of which we can be sure, is that he and Rachel were the parents of Samuel, because Samuel had this information entered in the St. Thomas parish register, Garrison Forest, Baltimore County. St. Paul's was the first parish in Baltimore County, and there are four Owings marriages in the St. Paul's Parish register, that let us infer they are all siblings: Robert, Samuel, Joshua, and Ruth. Later, St. Thomas was set off from St. Paul. The web site of "First Families of Anne Arundel County" lists additional children. Some may be conflated from other families.

From http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=:2492193&id=I2555:

Captain Richard Owings, The Settler

Richard Owings, was born Richard Owen, or perhaps Richard ab Owain, at about the time of the restoration of the Stewarts. The place of his birth was probably in the parish of Llanllugan, in the central part of County Montgomery, North Wales. For it is here we find that Cwn Owain or Valley of Owen whose name he was to give to one of his plantations. It lies in the southwestern portion of the parish among the upper waters of the southern branch of the Rhiw.

Of Richard Owings' parents we no nothing, but we may infer that they were yeomen or small gentlefolk, a class then numerous in Wales, and he himself was bred to the trade of carpenter. The origins of his wife, Rachel, are likewise uncertain, but one may suppose that they were married about 1682, for their eldest surviving child, a daughter, was born in the following year. In 1684 they removed to Anne Arundel County, Maryland, and there settled in Middle Neck Hundred, between the Severn and the South Rivers. They may have had relatives in this vicinity, or they may have been attracted to it by the familiar name of its principal river.

Richard Owings probably began in his new home by practicing his trade, but he seems later to have turned more and more to planting. On 12 September 1685, he purchased of Thomas Lightfoot "The Range," 384 acres, which on 9 November 1686 he sold to Jabez Pierpont. On 15 February 1688/9 he surveyed a second tract, near or contiguous to the former, called "Owings' Range" and embracing 162 acres, which he sold on 5 August 1690 to Ambrose Nelson. Both plantations were in Middle Neck Hundred a little to the west of the present Crownsville. Very probably he continued to occupy one or the other until his removal to Baltimore County in 1701-2. Meantime he had surveyed a third tract of land, 10 May 1688, called "Locust Thicket," 384 acres, which lay up south of the Patapsco, on Elk Ridge, in Broad Neck Hundred of Anne Arundel County, near what is now Shipley Station. This he sold, prior to April 1698, to Col. William Holland.

From 18 October 1697 until their disbandment in May 1701 Richard Owings served with the rank of Captain as commander of the mounted rangers enforced at the Little Falls of the Potomac. This was in New Scotland Hundred of Prince George's County, but it is now within the limits of Georgetown, District of Columbia. He and his men were to range the woods in this frontier area, looking out for possibly hostile "foreign Indians." They were to keep liaison with another Maryland garrison, north of the Patapsco, and with a Virginia garrison across the Potomac.

On his retirement Captain Owings settled, prior to Midsummer, 1702, in the Upper Part, North Patapsco Hundred, Baltimore County, where he had previously surveyed, on 10 October 1694, two neighboring plantations. These were "Long Acre", 225 acres, on the north bank of the Patapsco, halfway between Elk Ridge Landing and the present Ellicott City, and "Owings' Adventure," 450 acres, directly back in the woods and at or near the southeast corner of what is now Catonsville. On the former tract he built a small frame dwelling with brick chimneys at either end, a separate kitchen house, several tobacco barns, and other structures. Of the latter tract, he sold the northwest half to Col. Edward Dorsey, 13 August 1704.

After May 1727 this area was a part of Anne Arundel County. Captain Owings died, shortly before 14 November 1716, seized of all "Long Acre," 125 acres of "Owings' Adventure," and all of "The Valley of Owen." His widow occupied the dwelling plantation until her own death a little before 27 May 1729.

Richard Owings, Sr. served as Captain of the Rangers on the Potomac River from October 18, 1697 to May 16, 1701 when the Rangers were disbanded. He was known the rest of his life as Captain Richard Owings.

OWINGS
Richard Owings, born c 1662 in Wales, died intestate 1716 in Baltimore County., is placed as the 4th son of Owen ap Humphrey of Llwyn-du Co., Merionethshire, Wales. He marrried 1682 Rachel ap Robert, daughter of Robert ap Pugh of Llywn-dedwydd. They settled first in the Welsh Tract in Pennsylvania and before 1688 in Anne Arundel County. His widow Rachel Owings died testate 1729 in Baltimore County. From "Maryland Genealogies, A Consolidation of Articles from the Maryland Historical Magazine", page 133.


Research Notes: Wife - Rachel Beale

Rachel Beale may not have been the daughter of Col. Ninian Beale. She is not mentioned in The Founders of Anne Arundel and Howard Counties, Maryland by J. D. Warfield (Baltimore, 1905), pp. 101-103, where his other descendents are discussed. In addition, sources vary in the spelling: Beale, Beall, Bale.

Alternate bio FamilySearch.org AFN: HXNG-DH:
Born 1679 Prince Georges, Montgomery, Maryland
Christened 1679
Died Jun 1761 Prince Georges, Montgomery, Maryland
If these are correct, then parents are:
Ninian Beall or Bell AFN:1XDX-VJ
Ruth (Polly) Moore AFN: FPP6-3D



Notes: Marriage

M.J.P. Grundy found that Richard's wife released her dower right in 384 acres in Anne Arundel County that Richard sold to Jabez Pierpont in fall 1686. This would place the marriage date before that time. Do not know her surname.
