While copying all the Beede-L Archives today, I came upon for the first time, the name spelled BEEDIE. The letter is dated Jan.31st, 2000. Sorry it hasn't a thing to do with France; but only adds to my global searching. Two of "my" Daniel Beedy's sons state their father was of Scotch heritage!!!! Good luck, Sandra

Hi Beede cousins! Afew days ago while web brousing I came upon some French webpages. I can not remember very much of my high school French. However, I could read enough to find out that over in Brittney France, there is a small town called Bedee. It has a population of about 2,992, and is afew miles from Rennes, France. Apparently it is in a resort area. I got to wondering if maybe that is where the Beede surname originated. I bookmarked the page, but when I tried to return to that page afew days later I was unable to access it for some reason. Has anyone ever seen this info? If someone out there amomg you all,reads French it would help. All I had been doing was to type in all the different spellings of Beede. When I typed in Bedee several pages came up. All in French! Hoping someone can find these pages and info about that area. Regards, L.E. Mathews rem70@ctaz.com

That is interesting info about the glassmaking family named Bede in France, Hopefully someone will be able to follow up on it. Maybe somehow the surname Bede and the town of Bedee are related.

Hello.
You may be interested to know that I have posted a query at a French site several years ago (after I discovered that Eli came from the Isle of Jersey via France) and received a response from someone (I do not have the email in front of me) who stated that there was a well-known glass making family in France named Bede. Related? It's possible, but I have not taken the time to investigate it.
