Bernard Foskett 1685-1758

Bernard Foskett was very close to the Beddome family. At his funeral on September 21, 1758, at his own request, the six pall bearers were Beddome, Benjamin Fuller (a minister at Devizes, dead by 1753), Thomas Flower (1706-1767), John Tommas (1723-1800), Robert Day (1720-1790) and Abraham Larwill (c 1730-1760) of Frome. Beddome was asked to speak at the funeral but declined. Hugh Evans (1712-1781) spoke.
