5)- Rhode Island- Thos Riche letter book states that in 1763
ship TYGER, Capt James Beale, is co-owned by Riche & Edward / John Scott
of Newport. We also note that Riche mentions a Capt Richard Beale in connection
with the schooner DOLPHIN in 1762 (see I,2). We note a Richard Beale married
in 1752 in Trinity Church, Newport to Mary Brown, daughter of Capt John Brown.
We note that the Browns, Scotts & Beales were all members of Trinity church,
Richard Beale was a loyalist and lost his Newport home after the Revolution. He died 1789 in Newark, Co Nottingham shire, England in 1789.
ER- ADD RICHARDS WILL, HE HAD A BROTHER GEORGE (?).HE FROM YORKSHIRE ORIGINALLY (?)
ER- Search Quaker records Rhode Island--was Capt Richard Beale a Quaker at one time?
We note that George Beale's great grandson Truxtun Beale (died DC 1870) married in 1844 Mary Anna Tillinghast (born 1826 in Providence, RI, died Phila 1918). My research suggests that the Tillinghasts & their relations the Powers were in early times involved in the slave trade and distilleries in Rhode Island, along with the Browns.
Evan's evaluation of RI--possible, but remote. The RI Quaker records could yield some surprises.
