Biography

Name

Magruder -- the American spelling -- is a Scottish name. "Ma" stands for "Mac" or son of Gruder. Gruder is derived from Cruder, the person who sang the family history before writing was widespread. When surnames were introduced they were often derived from occupation.

Name: Captain Samuel /Mcgruder/ Magruder/ [1]

1654 Birth

Maryland historian Edward C. Papenfuse gives Samuel Magruder's birth year as 1654. [2][3][4]

Other sources give the birth year as 1660. [1] or 1661 [5]

Parentage

Samuel Magruder was son of Alexander Magruder, Immigrant, b. Scotland 1610-1677 [6]Alexander Magruder (1610-1677), was a possible Scottish prisoner of war, who may have been sent to Maryland as the indentured servant of John Ashcomb in 1652; and then became a large landowner.[2]

Numerous sources name Samuel Magruder's mother as Margaret Braithwaite [3] [4]Papenfuse, believing that Samuel's actual mother was Margaret Braithwaite, asserted that Samuel had two step mothers, first, Sarah; and second, Elizabeth Hawkins. [2] The Clan Gregor Society yearbook joined in the assertion that Margaret Brainthwaite was Samuel's mother. [6]

Samuel Magruder was the son of Alexander's wife Sarah (1630-1671). [6]

Alexander's mother was Margaret Cambell, widow of Sir Andrew Drummond of Perthshire, Scotland. [2]

Alexander Magruder was born in 1610. [2]

He died in 1677. [2]

He was a possible Scottish prisoner of war, who may have been sent to Maryland as the indentured servant of John Ashcomb in 1652; [2]

He became a large landowner.[2]

He maried Margaret Campbell, widow of Sir Andrew Drummond of Perthshire, Scotland. [2]

Son Samuel was the son of Margaret. His later stepmothers were Sarah (unknown) and Elizabeth Hawkins [2]

Son Samuel's brother was Alexander (1671-1746), who married Suzanna; and Nathaniel (?-1734). Son Samuel's sister was Elizabeth, who married John Pottinger [2]

Son Samuel's stepbrothers were James (?-1765); John (?-by 1711), who never married. [2]

His father was Alexander Magruder (1610-1677), a possible Scottish prisoner of war, who may have been sent to Maryland as the indentured servant of John Ashcomb in 1652; became a large landowner.[2]

His mother was Margaret Cambell, widow of Sir Andrew Drummond of Perthshire, Scotland. [2](NO, THAT WAS ALEXANDER MAGRUDER'S MOTHER)

Col. Samuel Magruder patented land called "Good Luck" in Prince George's County, MD. [6]

He lived in the portion of Calvert County that later became Prince George's County. [2]

1686 Marriage

Samuel married Sarah (?-1734), daughter of Ninian Beale (ca. 1625-1717/18) and wife Ruth Moore. Her brothers were Ninian (1669-by 1717/18); Charles (1672-1740); John (1674-?); Thomas; and George (1695-1780). Her sisters were Hester (Esther), who married Joseph Belt (ca. 1680-1761); Mary; and Rachel. Her nephews were Thomas Beall, of George (1735-1819); Joshua Beall (ca. 1719-ca. 1796). [2]THIS IS ALL WRONG

1686 Marriage to Sarah

He married Sarah [4]

Who was she? http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:The_Mystery_of_Sarah_Magruder.

Sarah, b. 1636, daughter of James Beall and Anne Marie Calvert

It is quite possible that there really was no father James Beall, no mother Anne Marie Calvert, and no daughter Sarah. But taking at face value the widely circulated descriptions of this Sarah, she was born in 1636, not an unreasonable birth year for the daughter of a man born in 1603.

However, Samuel is born in 1654, which would make his wife almost 20 years older than him. This is not impossible, but it is unusual.

In addition, Samuel Magruder married his wife Sarah in 1686. If his Sarah was this Sarah Beall, she would have been aged 50 on her wedding, and proceeded to give birth to 12 children, the first in 1687 when she was aged 51, and the last in 1710, when she was 74. This seems to be a clear impossibility. Therefore Sarah Beall of James has been disconnected as a claimed wife of Samuel Magruder.

Others

The year of marriage is estimated to be the year previous to the birth of the oldest child.

There is no documentation for the maiden name of Sarah. Serious researchers have debunked the speculation that she was the daughter of Ninian Beall, because Ninian Beall's will does NOT list any bequests to Sarah Magruder, wife of Col. Magruder, nor to any of their children. [5]

Samuel Magruder married Sarah (?-1734), daughter of Ninian Beale (ca. 1625-1717/18) and wife Ruth Moore. [2]

Sarah's brothers were were [2]

  1. Ninian (1669-by 1717/18);
  2. Charles (1672-1740);
  3. John (1674-?);
  4. Thomas;
  5. George (1695-

1780). Sarah's sisters were [2]

  1. Hester (Esther), who married Joseph Belt (ca. 1680-1761);
  2. Mary;
  3. Rachel.

Sarah's nephews were

  1. Thomas Beall, of George (1735-1819);
  2. Joshua Beall (ca. 1719-ca. 1796).

Sarah Magruder (1669 - 1734)*

• Marriage: Married Sarah, whose family origin is open to dispute and speculation. [7]

Who Did Samuel Magruder Marry?[8]

B_SIS_1/1658 Sarah Beall [9] Sarah, sister of John Pottenger Brice Clagett (bclagett@cov.com) has concluded that Magruder married John Pottenger's sisterSarah, who was baptized at Lambourn, Berkshire, on April 28, 1659, with no burial or marriage recorded for her there. Clagett concludes that she came to Maryland with her brother and married Samuel Magruder. Samuel Magruder named "my brother John Pottenger" in his will. This reference works if their respective wives were Mary and Sarah Beall, sisters. However, once one accepts that John Pottenger married Mary Mullikin or any other Mary who was not Mary Beall, the only way in which Magruder and Pottenger could be brothers (-in-law) is if Samuel Magruder's wife Sarah was John Pottenger's sister, and as shown previously John Pottenger did have a sister Sarah who is otherwise unaccounted for. [10]

Sarah Mullikin Nat Taylor asks how we can foreclose the possibility that Magruder's wife was a Mullikin. The answer is that Mary Mullikin named no daughter Sarah in her testamentary deed of 1667, and there seems no reason to believe that she had other children not mentioned[11]

Abt 1684
, Calvert, Maryland, USA[12]

He married Sarah, daughter of Ninian and Ruth (Moore) Beall, and their children were Samuel, Ninian, John, James, William, Alexander, Nathaniel, Elizabeth, Sarah, Verlinda, Mary, and Eleanor. [6]

However, there is no documentation for the maiden name of Sarah and Ninian Beall's will does NOT list any bequests to Sarah Magruder, wife of Col. Magruder.[6]
