Beckwith corrections

<<Lyon Beckwith
Currell Beckwith>>

That should be:
Sion Beckwith
Burwell Beckwith

I will double-check, but I am pretty sure those are misspelled, as often happens.

I have seen "Burrell" Beckwith and "Burell Beckwith", and I think they are bastardizations of Burwell, so to speak, with no pejoration intended toward the Burells and Burrells.

I have seen Sion spelled Syon, which could look like Lyon and thus become Lyon on the page. I don't recall seeing any Lyon other than the one Nash census, but alas, it has been a while since I have seen it. I hope not to add confusions.
