 A copy of the name Jo Owneill as it appears in the will of Peter Lemare.

1. John O'neale 1 was born about 1665 in Calvert County, Maryland and died in 1747, about age 82.

Note: We find out about John in the will of his Father-in-Law, Peter Lemare. It reads as follows. Will of Peter LEMARE (LAMAR) of Virginia and Maryland

Research Notes: NOTE: For many years I and many others believed John's given name was Joseph, based on a previous version of Peter Lamar's will, which mentioned him as Jos O'Neill. This original scanned copy of the will shows him as Jo O'Neill which was an abbreviation for John. Note that John Davis is also referred to as Jo Davis, while Joseph Edwards is referred to as Joseph.

Note: 1693: Peter Lemar and John Oneal were listed as owing the estate of Henry Brent, CA. Admin.: Richard Marsham. Note: 5/28/1703: Admin. accts. of Henry Brent, CA. List of bad debts: Peter Lamar (dead). John Oneal (runaway).
From the will we already know that John was granted the right to live on the land willed to Peter until Peter became of age and then the land would revert to the son. From the notes found by Linda Reno we know that in 1693 Peter Lamar and John O'Neale both owed money to the estate of Henry Brent. When the will was administered in 1703 Peter Lamar was dead and John O'Neal was nowhere to be found. He had run away from the debt, while his son Peter was living on the land willed him by Peter Lamar. Where did John go?
Could John have fled to Virginia to escape his debt? I have found the following record: John O'Neal died at house of John Preston and his estate so inconsiderable--none will admr., and sheriff ordered to sell. This seems consistent with someone fleeing from debt. Source: Chronicles of the Scotch-Irish Settlement in Virginia, Volume I AUGUSTA COUNTY COURT RECORDS. ORDER BOOK No. I. MAY 22, 1747. Page 204

Additional note on John: The following is an excerpt from an article by William Feland Meacham, Jr.:
The 17th Century Abbreviation 'Jo.' [March 5, 1999]
"It is very difficult to imagine an abbreviation being used in official documents unless it was crystal clear to everyone what the intended word was. The abbreviation "Jo." meant John (Johannes) in the 17th century. It was such a common abbreviation for such a common name that it would never be taken for anything else. Reading it as Joshua or Joel or Joseph would be like taking our "Jr." for a title like JP or JD. There are junior partners, and junior barristers are actually called juniors, but EVERYBODY knows what Jr. after a name stands for. That is how abbreviations work. And they are used for something which occurs frequently; we have LA for Los Angeles and no one would ever think of using it for Los Alamos or lower Andover. Staying with this example, there could be confusion to an outsider over "Monroe, LA" and "Anaheim in LA" but to an American of the 1990s there is no question whatever about the meaning of each.
To counter the notion that taking Jo. for John might have been an early Americanism of some sort, I found in Everyman's Dictionary of Abbreviations the following: Jo.Bapt. = John the Baptist, Jo. Div. = John the Divine, Jo. Evang. = John the Evangelist.
Finally, to put the matter beyond the slightest doubt, I managed to find an English publication of a 17th century work: Athenae Oxonienses -- An exact history of all writers and bishops who have had their education in the University of Oxford authored by Anthony Wood, written in 1672, published in 1813, reprinted in 1967 by Johnson of NY and London. In the Introduction "The Life of Anthony A. Wood" taken directly from his hand-written manuscript, one finds within the first five pages:
page iii, para. "1639" : " His younger brother John Wood died ..."
page v 3rd para line 7: "... Jo. Wood, his son, whome I have mention'd under the yeare 1639."
And on page xliv: " ... Dr. Jo. Fell, deanne of Ch.Church, and Dr. Jo. Dolbin, treasurer." A footnote directs the reader to vol. iv, year 1686, wherein is described the lives of John Fell and John Dolbin.
There are dozens of similar examples in this work, along with another abbreviation for John that I had not seen previously -- Joh. Both are of course short for the Latin Johannes, and Latin was still quite commonly used in 17th century documents and learned discourse. These abbreviations sometimes occur in close proximity with each other and/or with John in full, as in: "... and Joh. Lock, afterwards a noted writer. This Jo. Lock was a turbulent spirit..." (page lii), or "Sir Jo. Cotton ... Sr. Joh. Cotton ... Sr. John Cotton..." (third para., page lviii).
Finally, how to explain an entry of "John _____" directly above a "Jo. _____" on a passenger list? Obviously it could be nothing more than a random use of the abbreviated form, as in the manuscript cited above. It is also possible that each passenger list was a compendium made from other documents, viz. the sworn statements of conformity to the Church of England. The compiler of the passenger list would have used the name as it appeared on the oath document. The same is to be found in Early Virginia Immigrants and the 1704 Rent Rolls -- Jno. occurs right above or below John, or sometimes Jon."

Additional Notes and Speculations as to the Ancestry of John/Joseph O'Neill/O'Neale:
1) I have been searching ship's lists and have found a Johnathan Neale, who left England on July 4th, 1635, in the Ship "Transport," He was 12 years old. This information came from "Hotten's List." 2) Debby O'Neal has found a document stating that Smith's Island, Maryland, was first granted to J. O'Neale in 1636. Could this be the same person referenced in Item 1 above? 3) I've found a Hugh O'Neale, b: ABT. 1625 in Oldsbury, Gloucestershire, Eng d: in Patuxent, Prince Georges, MD. 4) On a List of Servants Transported by Samuell Gibbons of Bristoll in the Ship Batchelor of Bristoll 1674 We find the following: 1674 MM - Know all men by these presents that I Robert Ridgely of St. Mary's County do Assign, Sell (608) and make over unto Thomas Jones of Somerset County all my right, Title and Interest of, in and to Tenn Rights to Land to me due by assignment from Samuell Gibbons due the said Gibbons for Transporting numerous persons, including Hugh Oneale. 5) In a package I received from Betti Moore of Maryland there is a hand written note by an O'Neal researcher, M.M.A; stating, "Have not found anything more on Joseph O'Neal. Have a hunch he comes from Hugh O'Neale, but have no proof."
So, in looking for John's ancestors we have the following scenarios available for research: Johnathan Neale/O'Neale born 1622, arrived in Virginia in 1635. A possible grandfather..... J. O'Neale, purchased Smith's Island, Maryland in 1636. He could also be a possible grandfather...... Note: Rule this John out. Further research shows he only had one child, a daughter named Margaret.. Hugh O'Neale seems like the best candidate. He was 40 yrs old when John was born........ John was our original immigrant ancestor........

Note: The will of Peter O'Neal was written April 17, 1745. and probated in St. Mary's Co., MD. Sept. 16, 1747 The Will of Peter Oneale is found in the Calendar of Wills for St. Mary's Co. MD, Vol. 9, 1744-1749 page 122. From Betti Moore, 11/25/2001, Will is in the Will Book 25, Liber d d, No. 4, folio 155, Annapolis, Maryland

Research Notes: From the will below we learn that Peter was living in St. Mary's County, in 1717.
Davis, Jno.,St. Mary's Co.,23rd Dec., 1716; 29th Mar., 1717. To youngest son George and dau. Mary, each 1/3 personal estate. To two child., Jno. and Briscoe, and their hrs., all land equally divided between them, excepting 1/3 of dwelling plantation. To wife Ann, extx., 1/3 of dwelling plantation during life and 1/3 personal estate, absolutely. Test: Peter O'Neale (O'Neall), Alexd. Scott, Peter Harris. 14. 235.
There were two parcels of land named "almost" the same thing. "Cragborn's Purchase" was in Newtown Hundred (where the Fords, Wathens, etc. lived) "Crackborn's Purchase" was in Resurrection Hundred. Spellings are intertwined, but they were two different pieces of land in two different parts of the county. Peter Oneal was affilated with the parcel in Resurrection Hundred. 3/30/1747: "Hard Fortune", 62 ac., surveyed for Peter Oneall on the north side of the main northernmost branch of Trent Creek adjoining a parcel of land belonging to Ann Greenfield. Patented 3/30/1747. Is part of "Crackbourne's Purchase" and paid for by that name. (SMC Rent Rolls, 1639-1771). By Linda Reno, 1/4/2002
Here's what I know about Crackbone…… The land originally belonged to a Richard Crackbone. (Or Creekbone) (Md Archives Volume 49, page 10) Somehow the land came into the hands of Andrew Woodbury, who sold it to Willm Tanehill.. (Md Archives Volume 49, page 126)
Peter Lamare, along with his brother Thomas and John Geroe/Jeroe (?) bought the land from Willm Tanehill, (Md Archives Volume 49, page 338) Then Peter Lamare left the land to his grandson, Peter O'Neale. (Wills 2 -- folios 301-302-State of Maryland -- Hall of Records Annapolis) Peter O'Neale left the land to his heirs in his will. (Will Book 25, Liber d d, No. 4, folio 155, Annapolis, Maryland)

Note: Elaine C. Neal wrote: nealec@erols.com Dear John, Our Neals were originally oneals, and my husband's family descends from the same Joseph (John) Owneill that you do, so I guess you and my husband are distant cousins! I would love to prove the connection into the line. I can prove that Basil Oneal, our revolutionary war soldier, was born in Prince George's Co. Md. in 1758 and that he had a brother Richard who had a son Peter Lamar Oneal. This line continues to use Peter Lamar Oneal in the family. Our line from Basil uses the name Richard for the descending males. Our family tradition says that Basil, Richard, and others are children of Peter Oneal.

Note: A Peter O'Niel shows up in 1758 tax lists for Trinity Parish Upper Hundred, Charles County, Maryland. He was evidently passing through because he does not show on tax list prior, or after 1758. Briscoes also appear in this tax list and may have migrated with Peter. If indeed Peter had a son Basil, who married Milly Briscoe, this would reinforce the theory that they migrated together.

Research Notes: According to Elaine Neal: "Our neals were originally oneals, and my husband's family descends from the same Jo Owneill that you do, so I guess you and my husband are distant cousins! I can prove that Basil Oneal, our revolutionary war soldier, was born in Prince George's Co. Md. in 1758 and that he had a brother Richard who had a son Peter Lamar Oneal. This line continues to use Peter Lamar Oneal in the family. Our line from Basil uses the name Richard for the descending males. Our family tradition says that Basil, Richard, and others are children of Peter Oneal. Basil is described as an orphan in the family traditon, meaning his father died shortly after his birth."
If this is correct our line to Basil would look like this....... Jo Owneill + Unknown Lamare

i. Peter O'Neale
+ Ann Unknown
i: Peter Lamare O'Neale
+ Unknown Spouse
i. Basil O'Neale
+ Eleanor Millie Briscoe
ii. Richard O'Neale
+ Unknown Spouse
i. Peter Lamar O'Neale

On Rootsweb I found the following:
Dr. John Briscoe (abt 1724-1791) married 1746 Ann Wood was the son of probably Edward Briscoe & Susannah Gerard (SLYE).
Dr. John Briscoe & Ann Wood had: Dr. Ralph 1747-1831; Maybe George; Dr. Truman 1758-1801; Nancy 1760-?; MaybeBenjamin; Maybe William; Eleanor "Milly" (Briscoe) O'Neal;

Now here are some interesting observations:
John Briscoe, Ann Wood, Edward Briscoe, Susannah Gerard (Slye) and our Peter O'Neale all lived in Saint Marry's County, Maryland in the early 1720's.
In the mid 1700's John Briscoe moved to Prince George's County, Virginia. He had his daughter Eleanor Milly there. Peter Lamare O'Neale also moved to Prince George's County Virginia, and had a son Basil there. Eleanor Milly Briscoe and Basil O'Neale were married in Henry County, Virginia.on 1/17/1783.
Eleanor Milly Briscoe O'Neale died in Georgia.(1825) We have not located a death record for Basil.

Peter married Unknown Spouse.
Children from this marriage were:

+ 20 M i. Basil O'neale was born in 1758 in Prince George's County, Maryland, died in Happy Valley, Columbia County, Georgia, and was buried in Happy Valley, Columbia County, Georgia.
Basil married Sarah Green.
Basil next married Mary Ellen Briscoe14 on January 17, 1783 in Henry County, Virginia.14
+ 21 M ii. Richard O'neale .
Richard married Unknown Spouse.
5. James O'neale 4 (Peter 2, John 1) was born about 1719.

6. John O'neale 4 (Peter 2, John 1) was born in 1719 in St. Mary's Co. Maryland6, 7 and died on April 1, 1785 in Montgomery County, Maryland, at age 66.8

Research Notes: Note! The connection between these first two generations of O'Neals, and our John O'Neale HAS been proven as of November, 2001. In a letter from Bennet O'Neal to his nephew, written in Edmunton, Barren County, Kentucky on May 9, 1859, Bennet wrote the following. "You wanted to know some things about our family. I will give you the best information I can. My Father's name was John. He was born in St. Marys County Maryland the 9th day of Oct. 1749. His father's name was John and I think from Ireland." I believe Bennet was wrong about his Grandfathers birthplace. Bennet also said, my father... had three brothers Barton, Peter & Joseph.
The will of John O'Neal, shown below shows that this John had sons, Barton & Joseph.. This agrees with the letter from Bennet. I believe that Peter was not mentioned in the will, because Peter was not around at the time. Peter joined the Revolutionary Army in 1776. Shortly after being mustered out Peter moved to Pennsylvania. Why would a father leave land in Montgomery County Maryland to a son living in Bedford County, Pennsylvania?

In addition, we have the Census of Sugar Land Hundred, Frederick County, Maryland, taken September 2, 1776. The Census shows:
Name Age Calculated Birthdate
John O'Neal 57 1719
Peter 22 1754
Barton 16 1758
Joseph 10 1766
Margaret 49 1727
Margaret 18 1758
Phebe 16 1760

In addition we have the Montgomery County, Maryland census for 1790.

Looking at the names above we can see that Peter's descendants were living in the same county as William's Descendants. (Peter & William were brothers.) David, Henry and Barton were sons of John O'Neale, while Bernard, William, Jr and Lawrence were the children of William O'Neale. (Actually William is Will Jr and Will Jr is Will, III.) So, in conclusion, while we still have no CONCRETE evidence that John O'Neale, born in 1719 is indeed the son of Peter, we have VERY compelling evidence that he was. If you look at the Bennet letter, John's will, and the census evidence provided above, I feel that we have proven that our John O'Neale was indeed the same John O'Neale that was the son of Peter O'Neale.

This land was located below Rockville in Montgomery Co., Maryland. The 1790 Montgomery County Maryland Census shows 1 free white males over 16, 6 free white females and 20 slaves living in The Lawrence O'Neall household. 3) The following reprinted with permission: Biography of Lawrence O'Neal from "Twigg Family Research Pertaining to the Life and Times of Robert and Hannah Twigg" by Jerry B.

Lawrence O'Neal:
"The story of Lawrence is of particular interest and shows how a turn of fate put him in the path of the Twigg family. When Lawrence was a boy his father, William, sent him along with his younger brother to Thomas Ball, a tailor, for apprenticeship in the trade. Mr. Ball, without family of his own took such a liking to Lawrence that at a time in 1748 when he became seriously ill, made his will in which he left 197 acres call John (Should beToken) of Love to Lawrence. Mr. Ball died before the year was out and by that one act of generosity and affection, dissuaded Lawrence from a future as a tailor to one of a gentleman land owner and marketeer of real estate. When his father died in 1759, seeing that his son was successful in his chosen career, he left his land holdings to Lawrence's brothers and to him, a horse. For a short time Lawrence served as a clerk of the court for Montgomery County and as sheriff of Frederick County, but his success would be in the land. By 1793 he owned nearly 3000 acres in Allegany County alone.
Five years following the Twigg family move to Sink Hole Bottom, Robert's son John purchased land just to the north and with his wife Rebecca, started their home on Three Springs Head. Finding that there was a tract of unsettled land between the two, John contacted Lawrence from whom he purchased Twigg's Adventure in 1777. The following year Jeremiah Cheney, husband of Naomy Twigg, purchased 45 acres on Flintstone Creek called Fat Bacon from Lawrence, which was only six miles or so northeast of Sink Hole Bottom and Discovery. Following the death of Robert Jr., in 1805, his son John acting with his mother as executor of his father's estate, found that his father had failed to record the deeds of 1788. In effect the land still belonged to Lawrence. John went to him in 1811 and for the sum of five shillings purchased final rights to the land in his own name.
Undoubtedly there were other land purchases that involved Lawrence O'Neal. Those are yet to be found, but certainly he was an important factor in their lives (Twiggs). With his wife Henrietta and their seven children, he lived out a comfortable life in Montgomery County. The size of his estate can only be measured by the 28 slaves he owned in 1800. Lawrence died sometime between 1810 and 1820."

On or about 28 November 1811, Laurence O'Neale of Montgomery County, Maryland, , departed this life, intestate, leaving four children: Henry ) John )--all above 21 years old Mary Ann ) Eleanor Jamison,) widow and relict of Francis Jamison, late of Montgomery County
John O'Neale departed this life on or about 23 April 1817, leaving five children:
Susannah Henrietta ) Eleanor Elizabeth ) Rosatta Maria ) --- all under 21 years old Mary Ann ) John Eli )
Henry O'Neale departed this life on 19 October 1817, without issue, leaving his sister, Mary A. ONeale , and Eleanor Jamison, widow of Francis Jamison, and the above named neices and nephews as his heirs.
Eleanor Jamison and Mary Ann O'Neale petitioned the court for a commission to divide their fathers lands and ascertain their value in current money.
The lands of Laurence O'Neale in Allegany County, at his death consisted of the following parts of tracts: "Tuesdays Work", 789 acres; "Sugar Tree Flats", 190 acres; "Resurvey on Meadow", 258 acres; "Spaw", 49 ¾ acres; "Irons Mistake Amended", 144 ½ acres; "Small Island", 56 acres; "Surprise", 183 1/3 acres; "The Gleamings", 247 Acres; "Prospect", 166 Acres; "Conclusion", 740 acres; "Adventure", 12 acres, "Great Sugar Camp", 15 ¾ acres; "Yankee Hall", 111 ¼ acres; "Maryland Right", 39 acres; "Little Expected", 49 acres; "Fertile Meadow", 149 acres; "Big Spring", 266 acres; "Sugar Bottom", 108 acres; "White Oak Plains", 78 acres; "Sparking Camp Improved", 113 acres: "Wednesdays Work", 74 acres; "Rich Hollow", 104 acres: "Yankey", 51 acres; "Timber Ridge", 56 ¾ acres; "Addition to Small Island", 25 acres; "The Brothers", 376 acres; and sundry other tracts and pieces.
The lands were eventually sold and divided into four shares for the heirs, of $8,101.75 each.
Source: Donnie Nazelrod donnie@hereintown.net sent the above info, with the explanation. "While doing work in the Judgment Records of Allegany County, I found a couple of cases where the person I was researching had been sued, and then countersued, the heirs of Laurence O'Neale. He had bought a piece of property from O'Neale, who had died before the purchase price was completely paid. When he died, the heirs sued for the balance due. He then sued the heirs for clear title to the land. While working with these cases, I found the above case, involving the heirs of Laurence O'Neale. I made this abstract. Thought it might be of some interest to you. Many of my ancestors bought land from Laurence O'Neale - he appears to have been a large speculator in the lands of eastern Allegany County.

( LAURENCE ONEALE ) Caveat in the land office; THOMAS GASSAWAY May 4, 1790. ON full deliberation of the circumstances in this cause; the exhibits, the arguments of counsel, the rules and practice of the land office and the acts of assembly relative thereto, the chancellor is of opinion, That it cannot be considered, that the late chancellor determined the main point in controversy by granting leave to correct an erroneous certificate; that, by granting such leave, he did not intend to enlarge the time limited by law for compounding,and to determine that, until the certificate should be corrected, the vacant land therein comprized should not be liable to proclamation: That although there is manifest hardship in the present case; although the chancellor is disposed, as much as he can with propriety, to discountenance all attempts to preclude a man from the fruits of his honest industry and attention, and although he is impowered to decide all disputes in the land office on the principles established in the court of chancery, he is obliged by the positive law of the land, to decide that vacant land, comprehended in any certificate whatever, must be compounded for within one year from the date of the warrant; that as, in the present case, the caveator did not compound within one year from the date of his warrant, the vacant land comprehended in his certificate was liable to be taken by the first person who applied for a warrant to affect the same, notwithstanding the leave given by the late chancellor to correct the certificate; and that the defendant Thomas Gassaway, being the person who so applied, was entitled to the warrant which issued in his favour. It is therefore adjudged, ordered and decreed, this fourth day of May 1790, that the caveat of Lawrence Oneale be dismissed. A. C. HANSON, Chancellor.
