Descendants of Robert James Yeo & Caroline James of the British West Indies & Boston, USA

Doug descends from Robert James Yeo and Caroline, their son George Edward Yeo married Helen Storey. Robert James was a wealthy merchant on the Island of Jamaica around 1840 and his son George Edward was initially a teacher in the West Indies and was then ordained a deacon in 1864. He was a curate of Montserrat, (1864-5, & St Peter, Antigua 1865-6, Rector of the Virgin Island, 1866-72 & St Peter, St Kitts, W. Indies from 1872. He was also Canon of St John's Catheldral in Antigua. Doug has a very successful career, playing for the Boston Symphony Orchestra. His wife, Patricia, often accompanies him on the piano, and is also a brass player, as are his two daughters, the Yeo Family Brass has performed in many churches, schools and camps in the Northeast. I am now the proud possessor of several of Doug's C.D's with his autograph on them, and the music is superb !!!

Suzanne is the daughter of Clarence Edward's sister, Mildred and has done alot of research for this branch.
