Anne Wilkins

There is no portrait of Beddome as we have said but Mrs N informs me that she was recently sent, by a Beddome descendant in Canada, this portrait of a lady who is probably Beddome's daughter-in-law, Anne Wilkins (she was married to Boswell Brandon Beddome). On the reverse it says
Grandmother Beddome
to Ellen Octavia

According to an entry in the family Bible, Anne Beddome (nee Wilkins) died at 1 am on July 10, 1797. Boswell Brandon Beddome died on October 29, 1816. Ellen Octavia (b 1831) was the daughter of William Wilkins Beddome (1782-1858).
