He was also known as Elie BEDEE.
From "The History of Carroll County":
Eli Beede was a Frenchman of the Isle of Jersey, who, in 1713, at the age of fourteen, came to Boston and in a few months went to Hampton, where he served a regular apprentice with a farmer. In 1720 he removed to East Kingston, then Kingston, married and settle there, becoming a member of Rev. Mr. Secombe's church. This Eli Beede was the ancestor of all the families of that name in New Hampshire.
The following was recorded by Thomas Beede, the grandson of Eli:
My father, whose name was Thomas was the son of Eli Beede, a Frenchman from the Island of Jersey. He ie Eli Beede was the first & only one of the name, who ever came to this country. All therefore in the United States, who bear his name, are his descendants. I have no record of the time when the said Eli Beede came to this country; but from calculation I think it must have been about A.D. 1705. He was then 12 years old. His motive in coming was wholly to gratify his curiosity in seeing America concerning which he had heard many stories. His mother, being a widow, having lost her husband at sea, was very unwilling to trust her son, being but twelve 14 years of age, to the watery element; but the continued entreaties of young Eli at length prevailed. An opportunity which his mother thought favorable occurred. A ship was about to sail for Boston in New England, the Captain of which was thought suitable to take charge of the lad; being his uncle is his father’s brother his mother therefore reluctantly yielded to the importunity of her young son & confided him to the care of the said captain, in expectation of seeing him safely return in the course of a few months. But, alas, when she parted with her son, she parted with him forever. Not being accustomed to sailing, he was so extremely sea sick during the whole of his outward bound passage, that he could not be prevailed upon to return. His fear was, that he should not live to reach his native shore, were he to make the attempt. Therefore rather than expose himself again to the dangers of the sea, & especially to such distressing sea sickness, as he had endured in his passage he chose to be left in a strange land, without either friends or money, among a people whose language he did not understand, for he then neither spoke nor understood any language but the French. In his unhappy condition all his Captain could do for him was to provide a suitable place for his residence, which he did in the town of Boston. He did not stay long however in this place; but was put to a man by the name of Shaw, in the town of Hampton N.H. where he was bred[?] to agriculture. And, having served his master till he was twenty one years of age, he settled on a farm in Kingston, N.H. where he married to a person by the name of Sleeper, by whom he had four sons and two daughters; each of which, except one daughter became the parent of a numerous family & lived to old age.
The following was read at the 150th Anniversary of the settlement of Sandwich, N. H., Aug. 22, 1917, by Emme Beede Gulliver the third great granddaughter of Eli.
Once upon a time, in the days when History and Tradition seem to have met, there lived on the Isle of Jersey, a boy. He was a French Huguenot, and his name was Eli. His last name was Beede, but he spelled it Bede. He was filled with a great desire to see more of the world than the little island could show him, and so, in 1713, when he was fourteen years old, he hid himself away in the hold of a sailing vessel and came to America. In due time the little ship sailed, and in due time he was discovered and brought before the captain. When the captain, who was prepared to be very stern and severe, saw the boy, he relented and set about to find a task by which he should earn his food. He saw that his grimy fingers were delicate and had be trained to work "the most refined." He had among the articles for the colonial trade, large boxes of stockings knit by English dames. These stockings had become moth-eaten, and the young Eli soon proved that he could mend them to be as good as new. So he paid his passage, and landed safely—tradition says in Boston and tradition says in Portsmouth. He loved the country, and immediately set out to find employment on a farm. He went to Hampton, apprenticed himself to a farmer, and lived with this same farmer until he was 21. Tradition says that his indenture paid whatever remained of his passage money. He had gained a knowledge of farming and decided to go to Kingston, then East Kingston. There he went to work to make a living, and make a living he did.
The current  thinking is that Eli was born Elie de Bedee and that he came from the family of that name of Brittany, and that he is possibly descended from Jean de Bedee (1370-1424 Saint-Brieuc, France).
On 11 Jan 2008, the following information was published by researcher Paul Gervais:
I recall that some time ago Mark Beedy pointed out that according to Thomas Bedee, his father spoke "Norman French." This had the potential to confuse us as we looked around Brittany for Eli's origins. I found the following information on the web:
"Norman is spoken in mainland Normandy in France where it has no official status, but is classed as a regional language.
In the Channel Islands, the Norman language has developed separately, but not in isolation, to form what are recognised as Jerriais (in Jersey), Dgernesiais or Guernsey French (in Guernsey) and Sercquiais (or Sarkese, in Sark). Jerriais and Dgernesiais are recognised as regional languages by the British and Irish governments within the framework of the British-Irish Council.
Sercquiais is in fact a descendant of the 16th century Jèrriais used by the original colonists from Jersey who settled the then uninhabited island."
In that Elie de Bedee was born and grew up to the age of 12? in Jersey, the French spoken around him was the language he learned, in spite of the fact that his father had come from Anjou. In school he would have leaned this Jersey Norman French as described above. He was not, however, of Norman descent.

She appeared in the census in 1790 in Kingston, Rockingham, New Hampshire. She was probably one of the 3 females in son Hezekiah's household.
She died about 1793 at the age of 92 in Kingston, Rockingham, New Hampshire.
