We have mentioned previously that Francis Labee appears to have been the barber surgeon to whom Beddome was apprenticed. As suggested Labee drifted from his Baptist roots and became a Methodist. He often gave hospitality to John and Charles Wesley when they were in Bristol. (John refers to him as Labbe and Charles as Labu). Whitefield was also a visitor. In May 1739 John Wesley christened Labee's daughter Sara.
