Hi Sheila VERY impressive site, no frills but jam packed with info...well done I have just read the 1901 uk census of YEO's you have done and i noticed you have my grandmothers uncle (and probably a few more) on that list. My Yeo's are not that well know in Manchester/Salford/Eccles (Patricroft = part of eccles) parts of Lancashire, So i didn't think i would have much of a problem with the family tree. However after a little searching i found most YEO's seem to be situated in the Devon area :) Anyway, i was wondering if you could shed some light on my Yeo for me if possible. Edward HOLT married Sarah Jane YEO on 27th may 1893 (i have the marriage certificate) Sarah's father was called William but listed as deceased. On Sarah's birth certificate she was born 9 march 1872 to Frances KINSEY and William YEO and living at 8 Coopers Place, Salford. I do know that Sarah and Edward moved to Pym St in Eccles once married (where my grandmother was born). After looking more into Fanney Kinsey i recieved a doc (attached) for the marriage of Fanny and William Yeo (mistake made and name changed to LEO on this though), Sarah's parents marriage details and occupation :) Williams Father was called Samuel on it to. BUT.... i have been talking to my grans nephew (70 now) who remebers a family of YEO's over the road from them (pym st). He says thinking back on it they could have been cousins as he knows the family were close. Any details on William (Sarah's father), ancestors of him or even just the Yeos who lived in Pym st, Eccles would be so helpful

Many thanks in advance Paula Bretnall

Received from Ann Bonnewell, (for information only as her e-mail address is now out of date)

Hello Sheila, I am the 6th child out of 7 born daughter of Ronald Samuel Yeo born 41.4.22. He was brought up in Manchester. His father was called Samuel Yeo, occ. unknown to me (both father and grandfater are dead). My paternal uncle now lives in New Zealand and is called Harold Yeo. One paternal Aunt still live in Manchester, i.e. Hazel Evans, nee Yeo.My paternal grandmother was called Minnie Appleton. That is as far as I can go, until I dig into the local archives, etc., unless someone has any information which could help me. I was brought up in Leyland, Lancashire, but currently live in Kent. I was told by my father that his family owned a pottery in Dorset some generations earlier. I would be extremely grateful if you could give me some help whatever form. Much regards, Ann Bonnewell. ps. interestingly, my husbands family is descended from Bondville who was a knight who came over with William the conquerer in 1066. One Bonville married a female Yeo in the ?1400's.
