  25. 30. a) In 1706, Ninian Beall gave his daughter Mary a Negro girl about 5 years old called Nanny. (See #2) b) In his 1717 will, Ninian Beall gave his "son-in-law" Andrew Hambleton a Negro woman called Allie. (See #1) c) Andrew Hamilton's 1719 inventory included a Negro woman named Nanny, and a very old Negro woman named Ailie. (See #11) d) The preceding three records show that Ninian Beall's daughter married Andrew Hamliton [Hambleton], not John Pottinger / Pottenger. e) Mary Beall secondly married Thomas Evans, (evidence under #31) and had children born in the 1720s, possibly as late as about 1730. f) Regarding claims that Mary married both Andrew Hamilton and John Pottinger, that can not be. John Pottinger's and wife Mary's first child was born in 1688. Were John Pottinger's wife Mary identical to Mary Beall who married Andrew Hamilton and Thomas Evans, it would require her having children born almost 40 years apart, beyond the range of child-bearing years.
