NEW DATA FRENSHAM MANOR BEALE---
My first visited to Frensham Manor Beale in Frensham, Surrey, England was 6/14/02.
I visited there because research indicated that Quaker George Beale had owned part of Frensham Manor Beale ca 1700, and had also bought 3,000 acres of land in Bucks County, PA (see details George Beale findings as of Feb 13, 2003 in Scenario 3- ENGLAND TO PENNSYLVANIA, under P--VARIOUS SCENARIOS).

My researcher in England discovered Frensham Manor Beale was owned by Robert Beale (1541-1601) of Mary Queen of Scots fame (see "New find 12/1/12"). Research indicates the Manor House shown above possibly may have been built by Robert Beale ca 1570. (pd17, pd18, 10)
The manor of Frensham Beale was a possession of the le Bel, Bele or Beale family, originally held of the manor of Farnham, and covering a large area from Binsted, Hants, to Elstead and Thursley (VCH Vol II, p.609). It was held by the Beale family until the end of the 16th century. (16)

My grandfather and great-grandfather Beale in their Beale family research thought they were descended from Robert Beale (1561-1601). Grandmother made a needlepoint showing Beale family coat of arms that included Templar crosses.
