Peter Randolph
of Chatsworth, Henrico county, and son of Hon. William Randolph of "Turkey Island," was born about 1713. His first public office seems to have been clerk of Albemarle county, which he held only during the year 1749, and then only by deputy. In 1751, he was a member of the house of burgesses for Henrico, and in the next year, was appointed to the council, of which he remained a member until his death. Some years after he became a councillor, he was appointed by the King, surveyor general of the customs for the middle district of America. Col. Randolph strongly opposed the measures taken by the more advanced friends of American liberty, and Jefferson relates how, on the morning after Henry's famous resolutions were adopted by the house of burgesses, he came to the capitol before the session of the house began, and saw Col. Peter Randolph, of the council, sitting at the clerk's desk and examining the journals to find a precedent for expunging a vote of the house. He died, July 8, 1767, too early to see the result of the revolutionary spirit, which he opposed.

Beverley was born to Peter and Lucy (Bolling) Randolph at Turkey Island in Henrico County and educated at William and Mary. (Turkey Island is both an island in the James River and the name of the Randolph family plantation.) He married Martha Cocke in 1775.

Beverley served in the militia during the Revolutionary War and was a member of the state's House of Delegates from 1777 to 1780. He was elected Governor in 1788, the first to be elected after Virginia became a state.
