Clipstone, July 28, 1779

On Wednesday July 28, 1779, Beddome was one of the preachers (with Caleb Evans of Bristol) due to preach at the induction of Devonshire born Thomas Skinner (1752-1795) to the Baptist church in Clipstone, Northamptonshire. In 1783 Skinner moved on to Towcester and later to Newcastle. It appears that Beddome  had been due to preach but forewent his evening opportunity so that people could hear the 15 year old Robert Hall Junior (1764-1831).
