The name Beazley may be locational in origan, and is believed to be associated with the English, meaning, 'one who came from, or lived near Beazley'.
Charles Beazley, born in 1810, the son of William A. Beazley of Bowling Green Caroline County, Virginia, born in 1761, died in 1837, the year he moved with his family to near Sumpter County, Gainsville, AL. He had three other sons, William N., Richard and Harrison Coleman. They were tobacco planters. In 1834 in Virginia, Charles married Thursa Hyde on December 14; her birthdate is not recorded but she died November 10, 1851, in TX.
Between 1834 and 1848, Charles took his family to AL where all the children were born with the exception of Charles. They bought their slaves with them who bore the name Beazley and there are still descendants of these in Houston County.
The 1860 census, Houston County, TX, shows Beazley, age 50, born in Virginia, Farmer, Value Real estate, $4,500 and Value of Personal Property, $12,630.00. Charels Beazley came to TX in 1848 and settled on land 11 miles west of Grapeland that extended five miles down to the Trinity River. In those days, cotton, cattle, grain and possibly hogs were shipped on the Trinity river to Galveston, the principal port. Supplies were bought and shipped back. jaems Harvey (Jim) Beazley, fifth child of Charles , and his wife, Bell White Beazley, got their solid cherry marble-topped furniture this way. Their 'old home place' that was destroyed by a tornado in 1935, had contained all of the pieces exept one table. Great-granddaughter Alyne B. Hayman of Dallas owns the table.
Charles Beazley and Thursa Hyde's children were: 1. William Henry, born April 5, 1836; died June 20, 1863. 2. Caledonia Isabella, born March 4, 1838, died June 22, 1895, married Milton Dailey (see Dailey family story) 3. Robert Henry, born April 2, 1841; died August 23, 1854 (thrown against a tree and killed). 4. John Richard, born November 28, 1943; died October 27, 1863. 5. James Harvey, born February 15, 1847; died March 11, 1917; married first-Virginia Hickey; married second-Caledonia Isabella White (Belle). 6. Tom Turner, born August 7, 1848; died February 12, 1894. Married Joe Lively, Betty Lively Beazley's sister. 7. Charles harrison, born December 2, 1850; died August 24, 1927. Married first-Catherine Edens; married second-Betty Lively.
Thursa died in 1851 and Charles later married Catherine Pennington. In July 1854 their first child was born; Mary Virginia. Next were Georgiana, Frnklin R., Huldah Paine and an infant daughter. The 1860 census shows that Georgiana, age 3, and Franklin R. age 1, were with Charles, Catherine and other children, John, age 17; James, age 14; Thomas, age 12; Charles, age 10.
