I have been tracing my tree for some time, as a hobby. My family is now in Birmingham previously the line comes from the Welsh borders. My Great-great grandfather John Beddows was born 1822 in Oswestry. He appears to have had sons, Charles (born 1851), Joseph (born 1856)and Thomas (born 1853). His daughter Elizabeth (born 1859)posiply not married had a son Joseph (born 1876). Does this help. I would appreciate any information you have on the Oswestry branch of the family.
