The Beddome family

I am Joanna Edkins née Dibblee, and I am known as Jo. My parents were John and Celia Dibblee. They did a fair amount of genealogical research of both their families as a retirement hobby. This part of my website gives the research into the Beddome family, through my mother's grandmother. Click here for more geneaology of my family.

This is described as 'Beddome' genealogy, and yet you can see that the Beddomes come fairly far back. My parents researched the Beddomes because of a family story (proved false) that they were a Huguenot family. The line of descent goes quite a way through the female line rather than the male. Nothing wrong with that! Also, at one point cousins married which always confuses neat family trees...
