He appears in Bartley's Directory of Evesham, Pershore 1840 in Eldersfield as "Bevan J, Farmer".
Joseph died of old age, aged 83. He was described on the death certificate as an agricultural labourer. His daughter Mary Ann was present at the death. A probate entry dated 3 Dec 1857 for a Joseph BEVAN of Eldersfield and Pendock suggests that a will might be held at The Hive, Worcester.
