Beaufort were apparently around in 1888/89 and were certainly playing in the East Bristol & District League in 1898/99 and the Bristol & District League from 1899/00 through to 1907/08; they apparently played home matches at New Brislington, playing in blue and white stripes.
Warmley were in the B & DL in 1901/02, 02/03 and 03/04. Warmley Amateurs were also in the B & DL in 1902/03 and 03/04, alongside Warmley, and were there in their own right at least until 1909/10.
Going back to Warmley, the original Warmley were founded in 1882 and were regarded as the premier amateur side in Bristol at the time, playing the Tennis Court ground, Warmley and later at Clifton's old ground of The Chequers. However they folded, for financial reasons, in January 1899 but the Warmley name was apparently "revived with thre amateur organisations being formed, one called warmley (Gloucs Junior Cup finalists in 1902/03), another known as Warmley Amateurs (Gloucestershire Intermediate Cup finalists 1907/08 and Junior Cup winners 1906-07) and a third called Warmley Athletic (N Bristol & District League Div 2 champions 1899-00)".
Which Warmley was involved against Cheltenham I'll leave you to work out !!
