Bevin was reputedly a pupil of Thomas Tallis and was teacher in his turn of William Child. Organist at Bristol Cathedral from 1589 until dismissed in 1637, he was also a member of the Chapel Royal from 1605. In Archbishop Laud's "Visitations" (1634) Bevin is described as "a verie old man", past work. Anthony a Wood asserts that Bevin lost both his posts upon accusations of Romanism. This statement cannot now be proven since the Chapter books of Bristol, Wood's authority, were destroyed with the rest of the Cathedral library during the Reform Riots, 1831.
