Allan's ancestors moved from Atherington, Devon to Wales and his great great grandfather was involved with the railways, so they travelled around the country and then back to Exeter, Devon. Allan now works for the railways, a great family tradition.

James's Tree

I have just become interested in the subject of my family history, only because of the internet, however, I have not found much success at my search. Can you help me get started. In a nutshell I am James R. Yeo of Loomis, California, USA, born October 17, 1941 My father changed his name from Reginald William Clark Yeo Jr. to Robert William Yeo Jr. born January 17, 1917 in Sacramento, California, USA, died Reno Nevada USA, July 1968 Grandfather was Reginald William Clark Yeo born in London England approximately 1890, entered USA in approximately 1910, Brothers and sisters of Grandfather all of London England were Harold, Lionel, and Phyllis, there may have been others Great grandfather and grandmother were James Yeo and Edith Yeo of London, I understand that they were in the silk trading business. The survivor of great grandparents died sometime in the late 1930's as there was an inheritance to the eldest son of the eldest son in California in the early 1940's, I assume that probate and delivery would have taken a few years. If this is the kind of information that can get me pointed in the rights direction, please be so kind to respond. Regards, and great thanks! James R. Yeo

    Dear Sheila, Whilst surfing the net I came across the Yeo Site,I found it very engrossing,my G/grandfathers name was Yeo,Chales James b Dec1847,Dawlish.My G/mother was his daughter Alice,on the 1901 census I think there is a spelling error "Dawhel" is what is there Census place Norwood Middx.I am new to the family history trail and hoping you might give me some guidance.I have been living in Devon for 6yrs,Tiverton and Bradninch Regards Carole Harnden

    Hi,Shelia Was thrilled with the reply you sent.Goes back a long way. Anything on Charles James will be a bonus without sounding lazy as you have done the donkey work.ie Where if possible was he born in Dawlish.What tribe? I can't see which one it is I must be going blind. Charles James adopted Jane Caterer Allens daughter Emily Jane when they got married. In regards to your request I am afraid I can't offer much you have what was on the 1901 census. Alice married Henry Stevens date known.Died 1916 WW1 had 1 son George. She then married James Stevens had 3sons.James,Victor & William. They lived in West Drayton Middx Anything that I come across will keep you posted
