Honorable Robert Beverley (1769-1843) -- or Beverly, as it is spelled in many of the letters -- was the son of Robert Beverley and Maria Carter of Essex County, Virginia. Little else is known of him. The contents of the collection suggest he was a merchant in the Washington D.C. and Virginia area, dealing in large quantities. "Acrolophos" as the address on several of the letters suggest he was part of the Beverley family that for a time owned what is now Dumbarton Oaks near Georgetown. Acrolophos or Acrolophus was at one time the name of the main house, and a Robert Beverley built the Orangery there in 1810. However, this cannot be definitively established.
