A family tree featuring Benjamin Beddome can be found here online.
Here we learn that
1. John Beddome was born 1675 in Henley in Arden, Warwickshire and died 1757 in Pithay, Bristol. He married Rachel Brandon in Henley in Arden, Warwickshire, England.

Their children were:
i. Martha Beddome, born in Henley in Arden, Warwickshire.
ii. John Beddome, born 1716 in Henley in Arden, Warwickshire.
iii. Benjamin Brandon Beddome, born 1717 in Henley in Arden, Warwickshire; died 1795 in Bourton on Water, Gloucestershire. He married Elizabeth Boswell 1749 in Bourton on Water.

2. John Beddome (1675-1757) had a father, probably called Benjamin and his mother was Mary Tibbetts. This Benjamin was born 1655 in Stratford on Avon and died 1682 in Stratford on Avon. A note in a family tree at Bristol Baptist College suggests that he was a shoemaker who lived at 3 Sheep Street, Stratford. He married in 1675. Besides John Beddome (1675-1757) they had Mary Beddome (d 1677 in Stratford on Avon) and Mary Tibbetts Beddome.

3. This Benjamin, father of John, was the son of another probably Benjamin and a Susannah (nee Barnard, I discover elsewhere). This Benjamin was born 1620 in Stratford on Avon and died 1680 in Stratford on Avon. The Bristol family tree suggest he was a joiner at the same address. He married Susannah 1643 in Stratford on Avon.
Their children were:
i. Charles Beddome, born in Stratford on Avon.
ii. John Beddome, born 1647 in Stratford on Avon.
iii. Elizabeth Beddome, born 1656 in Stratford on Avon.

vii. Benjamin? Beddome, born 1655 in Stratford on Avon; died 1682 in Stratford on Avon.
viii. John Beddome, died 1646 in Stratford on Avon.
ix. Benjamin Beddome, died 1650.

4. Going back further again, this Benjamin was the son of a John and Emme. This John was born about 1600 in Stratford on Avon and died 1646 in Stratford on Avon. The Bristol document suggests that among other things he was a schoolteacher. he had also been town clerk. He married Emme in 1617 in Stratford on Avon.

5. The online document also states that the children of our Benjamin Beddome (1717-1795) were:

i. John Reynolds Beddome, born 1750. He died 1769 (Bristol document)
ii. Samuel Beddome, born 1756. He married Jane Wilkins of Cirencester in Clapham in 1781 (Bristol document). He died 1815.
iii. Foskett Beddome, born 1758. This is the one who drowned at Deptford in 1784.
iv. Boswell Brandon Beddome, born 1763.
v. Elizabeth Beddome, born 1765.
vi. Richard Beddome, born 1769.
vii. Josephus Beddome, born 1779. He married Sophie Petrie (in Clapham 1804 says the Bristol document).
(There is also viii. Benjamin (1753-1778) who became a medical doctor according to the Bristol manuscript. He is the one died young from a "putrid fever" in Edinburgh).
Also a Joseph was born in 1768. He appears to ahve died from whooping coughon OCtober 17, 1775, aged seven. Another child was born in 1775 (a tenth Snooke calls him).

6. As for Beddome's grandchildren we know (from the Bristol manuscript) that Samuel and Jane had six children (Mary Ann who married William Binnings, Elizabeth who married Rev J W Charlesworth of a long line of Anglican clerics, Benjamin, Samuel Archdale, Jane and Richard) and Josephus and Sophia had seven (John Reynolds, William Wilkins, Anne whose second marriage was to Olinthus Gilbert Gregory [1774-1841] the author of a brief memoir affixed to an edition of Beddome's sermons, Boswell Brandon, Samuel, Jane and Sophia).

7. The son of Elizabeth and Rev Charlesworth was Samuel Beddome Charlesworth, Rector of Limpsfield. He married his first cousin Maria Beddome daughter of wealthy barrister Richard (1818). They had three daughters. The youngest Maud Elizabeth (1865-1948) was married to the leading Salvationist Ballington Booth, son of William Booth.
