bullet  General Notes:

Found in The Times, February 9, 1886

In the person of the Rev. George Griffiths Beadon, late Rector of
Axbridge, Somersetshire, who died a few days since at Crowcombe, near
Harefield, in that county, one of the oldest clergymen of the Church
of England has passed away. Mr. Beadon, who was in the 89th year of
his age, was the only son of the late Mr. George Beadon, by his
marriage with Charlotte, daughter of the Rev. Jeremiah Griffiths, and
grandson of the late Mr. George Beadon, of Oakford, Devonshire, who
was a brother of Dr. Richard Beadon, successively Bishop of Gloucester
and of Bath and Wells. The family, according to Sir Bernard Burke,
was of considerable importance at a very early period, and enjoyed
extensive property on the border-land of Somerset and Devon. Mr.
Beadon was ordained deacon in 1821, admitted to priest's orders in the
following year, and held the Rectory of Axbridge for more than half a
century-namely, from 1823 down to 1875. The family of the deceased
gentleman has been remarkable for longevity, one of his relatives, the
Rev. Frederick Beadon, Canon of Wells, who died in 1879, having become
a centenarian.
