  • Biography*: Captain Samuel Magruder was a contemporary and neighbor of Alexander Beall" (B-ALEX-2/1649) (McLean, p. 14) Served PGC as militia captain 1696, as commisioner 1697, high justice 1699-1705, member of House of Burgess 1704-1707. [Will WM1:235]. Samuel Magruder will 1711 mentions "my brother John Pottinger." (Carolyn Collins (NVXJ48A) Indiana). Sarah Bell Magruder named two of her children, Mary and John, as a compliment to her sister Mary, and her husband John POTTENGER. Mary Bell POTTENGER named two of her children, Sarah and Samuel, as a compliment to her sister, Sarah and her husband Samuel Magruder. The apparent fondness of Sarah Bell Magruder for Colonel Ninian Beall and his family indicates either a relationship or strong friendship. She named her second son for Colonel Ninian; and in her will of 1734 whe makes valuable presents to Mary and Samuel Beall, children of Ninian Beall(2), 1672-1710" . Samuel Magruder will 23 Nov 1710-31 Dec 1711 (PGW I:46; Heterick I:32), lived Good Luck.

  • Research Note*: 11 December 2014; There are several myths that have attributed Mary, wife of John POTTINGER,
    and Sarah, wife of Samuel MAGRUDER as being children of Ninian BEALL.
    While that has been disproved, in that the evidence shows that Ninian's
    daughter Mary married Andrew HAMILTON,30 the thought remains among some
    researchers that they were BEALL sisters, and relatives of Ninian. The
    couples were related in that Samuel MAGRUDER in his will call John POTTINGER
    his "brother" [brother-in-law].

    Recent research of Brice Clagett (Nov. 2001) concluded that John POTTINGER
    married Mary MULLIKAN and Samuel MAGRUDER married Sarah POTTINGER, sister
    to John. This was based on relationships derived from John DEMALL in his
    1725 calling Robert POTTENGER, son of John and Mary his "cousin."18 Research
    of mine in Feb. 2002 concluded that he overlooked that Robert POTTENGER's
    wife Ann EVANS was niece to DEMALL's wife, Mary EVANS. While CLAGETT's
    research could still be valid, and Mary a MULLIKIN and Sarah a POTTENGER,
    it cannot be considered as proved.27

    The theory which at present has the most validity is that Samuel MAGRUDER's
    wife Sarah may have been the daughter of William MILLS and wife Tabitha, and
    thus a step-daughter to Tabitha's second husband Thomas BLANFORD.28 Some
    MAGRUDER researchers believe that John POTTENGER may have had a short-lived
    marriage to Samuel MAGRUDER's sister Elizabeth. Note, though, that in 1706
    the estate of William MILLS, Jr., there was a payment to "John POTTENGER
    for the use of Martha BLANFORD."29 Martha was a daughter of Thomas
    BLANFORD and wife Tabitha, and half-sister to the MILLS children. If the
    children of Thomas BLANFORD were named in order in his will, Martha was the
    youngest. If the children were born about every two years after Tabitha
    (widow MILLS) married Thomas BLANFORD, then Martha was probably born about
    1686-1690. One implication of the payment to John POTTINGER for Martha
    BLANFORD would be that Martha was living with his family. With both her
    parents dead, a logical place that Martha, a single age 16-20 year old female,
    would live would be with one of her [half]-sisters.1
