Richard Beadon (15 April 1737 – 21 April 1824) was Master of Jesus College, Cambridge 1781–1789 and later Vice-Chancellor of the University, Bishop of Gloucester and Bishop of Bath and Wells.


Beadon was born at Pinkworthy in Devon, son of the Rev. Robert Beadon, Rector of Oakford. He was educated at Blundell's School and admitted to St John's College, Cambridge in 1754. He was eighth Wrangler and Senior Chancellor's Medallist in 1758.[1]

He married Rachel, granddaughter of Bishop Gooch, of Ely, and had one son, Richard.

It is said he was admirable both as Master and Vice-Chancellor, and a very handsome man. His portrait survives in the College.
