      "Bevin, Charles (Anne Arundel County), soldier (rank not stated) circa 1675; paid for his services in the late expedition against the Nanticoke Indians in 1678; one "Charles Beaven" died testate in Prince George's County by June 21, 1699 ( date of probate; Mary Beaven, widow). (Ref: ARMD 7:96; MDWB 6:285)".

      Am trying to figure out exact relationship (brothers, cousins, friends?) between Charles Beaven and Benjamin Evans. Mary Louise Donnelly says in her Beaven-Blandford Clarkson-Mitchell Families of Maryland, Kentucky, U.S.A. book that they were brothers; I think this could be true, but I can not prove it, although Charles eventually owned the Hargrove tract that Evans had, and the Evans/Bevan names probably have come from the ab Evan name of Wales.
