Thanks for the information on Edward Neale. Michael Robbins mentioned Edward in his doctoral dissertation, "The Principio Company, Iron Making in Colonial Maryland, 1720-1781." Edward also appeared in the Maryland Gazette newspaper with the following entries:

May 1, 1751--William Bennett says that he bought land, called "Arabia Petraca," on the north side o Deer Creek in Baltimore County, from Edward Neale, of Queen Anne's County, and Ralph Falconer, late of Baltimore County, partners in an Iron Works.

Jan. 1, 1761--Edward Neale, of Queen's Town in Queen Anne's County, died last Sunday, after a tedious illness. The next day, Mrs. Neale died suddenly.

Edward H. Heite mentioned Edward Neale's involvement in ironworking in his excellent article, "The Pioneer Phase of the Chesapeake Iron Industry: Naturalization of a Technology," that was published in the quarterly bulletin of the Archeological Society of Virginia, September 1983.

Edward should also show up in the Prince William County, Virginia court records.
