William Yeo & 1. Margery Rowell, 2. Elizabeth Beckley of Holsworthy, Devon

including William and Jane Fanson - Holsworthy & Canada & Henry and Mary Cornforth Dobson

Carl has researched very thoroughly this branch of Yeos. It has been many years work and he is now putting it in to book form. He has kindly sent me a copy of his file, which I have attached to my main file.

(2 Generations of the tree can be viewed here)

Hello Sheila ,I visited your web site and was very impressed. I wish I had more time to take a more active part but I am struggling to complete our Yeo book. If I spend time researching for additional information I will never get the book completed. When this project is completed, I promise to give you more help. Have I sent you a single line of the first three generation of the William & Jane Yeo's family. I can scan it and send it to you if you are interested. It takes a few minutes to down load. Carl

From Heather Burrow

Hello I came across your website today, and read with interest the Direct Descendants of William Yeo and Jane Fanson of Holsworthy, Devon. My step grandmother was Minnie Freda Yeo (1897-1976), who was the daughter of John Yeo (son of Henry Yeo and Mary Dobson) and Regina Ruth Yeo (daughter of William Yeo and Susan Wonnacott). Although my grandfather Hector McPhail and Minnie Yeo (Hector's second marriage) did not have any children, we grew up knowing them as Grandpa and Aunt Minnie. I would be interested in making contact with your source, Carl Pontifex, as I have tried to locate the John and Regina Yeo family in the 1901 Canada census without success, and hope that he may be able to give me some direction on this. They were either living still in Palmerston Ontario area or were by that time in Manitoba. Thank you Heather Burrow Oakville, Canada

I am part of the same family branch as Carl Pontifex (William Yeo and Elizabeth Fanson, Canada), and I have sent him an e-mail. You have done an enormous amount of work, and the site is just fascinating. Thank you very much. Muriel Doris From: "Muriel Doris"

From Tim

Tim has his own site called The Yeo's and More which has masses of information on his direct line.

Hi Sheila, and again all the best wishes for the season and the coming year. I am writing this time to give you permission to put a link from the one name societys site to our site, The Yeo's and More. As the two sites have the common goal of uniting and sharing info with other Yeo researchers and family members and allowing others who are interested to view and contribute what they can I feel it is fitting that all our various sites be linked. As you know I encourage all members of The Yeo's and more to create their own pages and tell their Family stories and or create their own photo albums, or post messages on the message boards about important news, family events or other info they may feel would be of interest. At the request of some of my contacts there is info they don't want displayed on public pages therefore a lot of the actual family tree info I have located in the sites documents which is a page that can only be viewed by the members of our site. Notwithstanding this fact I will share any and all info with those that request it with the same provisions out of respect for the wishes of my sources. This option is also available to other members of the site if they have info they wish to share with other members but don't want it open to the general public. Best Wishes To All, Timothy C Yeo timchasyeo@hotmail.com

Another Descendant of William Yeo and Margery Rowell, grandson of Percy Armstrong Yeo, and Florence McCon(n)achie.
