  • Notes 
    • From Rootsweb.com  Database name mr_tree  on 13 Apr 2008:

      Edmund II Casteel moved to Prince George County, MD in 1713. He planted 300 acres of land there where he developed 'Casteel Plantation" where he grew tobacco. EDMUND CASTEEL, son of Captain Edmond du Chastel de Blangerval, moved from Philadelphia to Piscataway Creek in Prince George's County, Maryland. In 1713 he there surveyed "Casteel," 300 acres, which he patented December 10, 1715. Two of the children of Edmund and Johanna Casteel were Edmund 3d and Meshack Casteel. KinNextions 11-17-2007: Edmond du Chastel, 2nd hereafter called Edmund Casteel, of "Casteel" plantation, St. John's or Piscataway Parish, Prince George County Maryland, removed from Philadelphia to Prince George County where he purchased the plantation which he patented under the name of "Casteel," Dec 10, 1714 (MD His.Soc. MS., Calvert Paper No. 882, page 167); the original grant having been dated Oct 12, 1713 (Prince George County , MD deeds book Y , page 575); and the survey, Dec 3, 1713. By subsequent purchases of adjoining lands he aquired a tract which he patented under the name of "Edmonds Frolic Enlarged" and later conveyed to his son Meshach Casteel (Ibid., Book TT, page 638; Ibid., Book JRM3, page 373). And in the year 1742 when his health was failing (Ibid., court minutes, book CC, page 129) and his wife Johanna (also called Hannah) had died (Ibid., court minutes, pages 109,608) he conveyed part of "Casteel" plantation to his son "Edmond Casteel Junr planter" (Ibid deeds, Book Y, page 575). The last references to Edmund Casteel, 2nd occur in November 1743; and to his wife, in 1733. There is no will on record for either of them, and the deeds cited above prove the identity of only two of their children, Edmond and Meshach. Nevertheless the writer has found evidence which leads him to include John and Joseph among the children, although the evidence is only circumstantial. The "Maryland Historical Society Magazine," vol 9, pp275, 357-58, has published a roster of Maryland troops in French and Indian War , including the names of John, Zachariah and Peter Casteel. The children of Edmund and Johannah Casteel known with certainty are: 5. Edmond 3rd., who follows, 6. Meshach, who follows after his brother. And probably, 7. Joseph , who appears as a bondsman in a transaction dated August term, 1745 (Prince George Co. ct. minutes, Book DD, p. 196) 8. John, who married Rebeccah ________, by whom he had a son Henry Casteel baptized, Aug. 25, 1765.)MD Hist Soc. MS Piscataway Parish Register, Prince George Co. , MD., page 351). In 1773 John Casteel was living in ?Bedford Co. PA. near Shadrack Casteel("Penna Achives," 3rd ser. vol. 22, p.44), and served in the Revolution in Washington Co. PA., militia (Ibid, 5th ser., vol. 4, pp. 394, 704 [1]
