View Tree for Gabriel BeabeauGabriel Beabeau (b. Bef. 1679, d. Bef. 1717)

Gabriel Beabeau (son of Gabriel Beabeau and Cathrine Rivault) was born Bef. 1679 in Saint Sauvant France3, 3, 3, 3, and died Bef. 1717 in VA. He married Elizabeth Spencer on 1702 in King William Co., VA3, 3, 3, 3, daughter of Thomas Spencer.

 Includes NotesNotes for Gabriel Beabeau:
Robert Nash granted 350 acres in St. Stephens Parrish, New Kent County
for the transportation of seven persons, including Gabriel Baubau, into
the colony. The others named were John Pass, Thomas Hopkins, Thomas Atkinson, Francis Walker, Charles Crowley and William Archell. Dated Oct 25, 1700. Filed Nov 7, 1700. (Virginia Patent Book 9, pp. 281-82)

Samuel Williams and Daniel Coleman granted 600 acres in King William Co.,
"between Williams and Bubboe's plantations" on Apr 23, 1703. (King William
Co., VA Patent Book 9, p. 549)

Presumed to be of French Huguenot descent through family folklore.

The date of Gabriel's death is important because it defines a time span during which he could have fathered children. Most researchers tend to ignore Moses Boboe who witnessed the deed of John Coffey on Nov 28, 1752, but his birthdate (before 1731) limits his relationship with Spencer to a brother or son. Since there is some considerable material for the children of Spencer, it seems more likely that he is Spencer's brother.

Current records make it impossible to accurately determine a date for the death of Gabriel. Some researchers use the land grant of October 23, 1702, granting 250 acres to Elizabeth, widow of James White, and the Quit Rent Rolls of 1704, showing Elizabeth renting 200 acres, as proof of Gabriels death. It was unusual for women to act in legal matters if they were married, but not unknown. Gabriel, a recent immigrant, may have been unfamiliar with the legal vagaries of a new world. He may have been unable to speak or understand English, may have been unable to read or write English even if it were his native tongue. They might well have agreed to leave legal matters to a more worldly, and better educated,
Elizabeth who appears to have been involved in the importation of immigrants in her previous marriage to James White and later in the purchase or rental of land. It seems more likely that Elizabeth became a widow sometime after 1704.
