Stitchers (Edinburgh & Roslin): Kathy McGlew, Amanda Drollinger, Ann Stewart.

Ninian Beall, a junior officer in the Scottish army of Alexander Leslie, was captured by Cromwell's forces at the Battle of Dunbar in 1650 and sold into indentured slavery in Barbados. On his release in Maryland, he became commander of Lord Baltimore's 'vessel of warr', Deputy-Surveyor of Charles County and Commander-in-Chief of His Majesty's forces in Calvert County. Beall brought in numerous Scottish immigrants, many of whom settled on the ‘New Scotland 100’ tract. He owned the land which later became Georgetown, and ten plantations with such names as Rock of Dumbarton, Beall’s Medowes, Beall’s choice, St Andrews and Largo.
