Is there any evidence for the alleged parents of Thomas Beeson?

+10 votes

Thomas Beeson was the father of Pennsylvania Quaker immigrant Edward Beeson.  Wikitree currently shows Thomas Beeson's parents to be William Beeson and Isabell Jelly, with a royal and Magna Carta lineage, but this appears to just be internet speculation.  See

Is there any reason NOT to detach Thomas's parents?

I have an additional spouse for Thomas with a maiden name of Mary Mills (1724-1810) she had an additional spouse, William Hunt (Marriage  6 Oct 1753). Her parents were John Mills and Rachel Bates. I have William Beeson's father as Richard Beeson and wife Charity Grubb with his parents Edward Beeson  (B: 24 FEB 1650 • Stoke, Lancashire, England, D: 20 Oct 1712 • Nottingham, Chester, Pennsylvania) and Rachel Pennington. Edward had an additional marriage to Elizabeth Grub [Sr] (1668-1719). Elizabeth Grub [Jr] (1691-1730) and Charity Grub are offspring of John Grub and Frances Vane. I also have dates conflicting for Mary Beeson (Mills) (B:1753, D 1802). The confusion seems to also arise  from Elizabeth Grub Sr also being the child of Henry Grub 1653-1705. I hope this helps

Hi Betty! I have Grub/Grubb in my line somewhere (it escapes me at the moment). What are your sources for this info?
found who I was remembering. She's not my line. I had worked on Simon Hadley's line, & his second wife (apparently no kids) was Phoebe Grubb. In WikiTree, she's sister of Charity (Grubb) Beeson.

I can not find anything in any of the usual places.  I see no reason to keep him attached. But a note indicating the commonly found trees with NO sources might be helpful.
