The Beall lands were in the larger Bel Pre Tract in Aspen Hill, Maryland.

Location

The tract referred to in many deeds as "Beall's lands" was located along the modern-day Bel Pre Road between Georgia Avenue and Layhill Road.

These tracts shared some bounds with "Garter Lost".

Much of the Bel Pre tract was eventually developed as Strathmore at BelPre.
