- From "Major Robert Beverley and His Descendants", by W.G. Stanard:
- 15. Robert3 Beverley (Harry2, Robert1), son of Captain Harry Beverley and Madam Elizaqbeth, his wife, was born November 6, 1701 (Christ Church Register); married April 10, 1729, Ann, daughter of William Stanard, of Middlesex County, and died in 1733. His seat was "Newlands" Spotsylvania County, and he was a rather exceptional instance of a Virginian of large estate who never held public office.
- Robert Beverley patented 24,000 acres of land in Spotsylvania (now in Greene), called the "Octonia" tract.
