    1. [S107] Family Histories,
      John Neall was born in Ireland, probably in the 1690s, and came to America sometime between 1718 and 1730 and died in 1731 on Beaver Pond Beach, Amelia Co., Virginia. John married Margaret Remay the only daughter of Abraham Remay, a French Huguenot. Margaret's first husband was named Livingston or Lewiston and she had one daughter Elizabeth, with him. Elizabeth married Peter Thompson.

      After John died in 1731, Margaret married William Hatchett who was born in 1692 and his will was recorded in Amelia Co. between 1784 and 1786. William Hatchett received a grant dated May 20, 1735 for 200 acres on the south side of the South Fork of Beaver Pond Beach.

      John Neall and Margaret Remay had one daughter, Mary who married Robert Marshall. Margaret Hatchett's will was dated March 13, 1788 and recorded June 7, 1792 in Nottoway Co. [formed from Amelia Co. in 1789]. She names her daughters Elizabeth Thompson, Mary Marshall, deceased, Martha Roberts [whose first husband was John Neal, son of Roger Neall], Ann Hatchett [who married Roger Neal, son of David Neall] and Jane Truly. Her sons John Hatchett [who married Mary Neal daughter of Roger Neall], William Hatchett, Archibald Hatchett and Abraham Hatchett, and her grandchildren David, Thomas and Tabitha Neal [children of Roger Neal and Ann Hatchett].

      Amelia Co. Order Book I, February 20, 1740 states that "Mary Neale, orphan of John Neal made choice of William Hatchett for her guardian and he together with Roger Neale and Stephen Neale acknowledge bond for the payment of orphan's estate"

      There are no land records available for John Neall but we know from his brother Thomas' land grant that it adjoined John Neale's line. We also know that John's daughter Mary received a land grant in 1735 for 400 acres. The location of this grant shows that it adjoined the land of Thomas Neall so it seems likely that John Neall was in possession of land that he had applied a grant application for and that since he died prior to the grant being finalized, the grant was given to his daughter Mary.
