Bryant Family 12TH GENERATION

Maj. Robert Beverley

born: 1641 in Beverley, Yorkshire, England
died: 15 March 1687 in Middlesex County, Virginia
A lawyer and vestryman of Christ Church parish, Clerk of the House of Burgesses
He was placed in command of the royal forces during Bacon's Rebellion. One of Bacon's early proclamations included him among the "wicked and pernicious Counsellors, aides and Assistors [of Berkeley] against the Commonalty in these our cruell Commotions."    He received from the Governor high commendation for his zealous and effective service: "Whereas many frequent and successful services to his Sacred Majesty, this Country, and me, his Majesties Governor of it, Major Beverley has proved himself to be most loyall, Circumspect, and courageous inhis majesties Service for the good of his country, and the suppressing of this late horrid Rebellion, began by Bacon, and continued since his death by Ingram, Lawrence, Hansford and others, the last of which he the said Robert Beverley, with courage and admirable conduct, never to be forgotten, this day brought to me." (Proclamation of Governor Berkeley, 13 November 1676)
Later he incurred the displeasure of the Governor by refusing to turn over certain legislative journals. He was arrested and kept prisoner on board the ship Duke of York, and then on the Concord. He was transferred to Colonel Custis's sloop, but escaped. He was taken into custody again at his house in Middlesex and sent to Northampton. In 1683 new charges were brought against him, that he had made up the journal and inserted His Majesty's letters therein, notwithstanding it had first been presented at the time of the prorogation, and that he had refused copies of the Journal to the Governor and Council (to which he felt they were not entitled without permission of the House). He died a few months later.
