The information below is all that I was able to read on gravestones in the Bristow Cemetery at Upchurch. I think this will shed some light on your side of the family. According to my encyclopedia Benjamin Helm Bristow was born in 1832, so I suspect that he was a nephew of Benjamin Thomas Bristow and was probably named for him.
