Many Yeo researchers are aware of Jean's excellent website which has been on line for many years. She has an extensive tree for her branch, the descendants of Philip & Margaret Bond who have their roots in Stratton, Cornwall and then, the area around St Cleer, Cornwall. Jean also has many other articles and data of interest to all Yeo researchers, including a page dedicated to Yeo researchers.

New information on Margaret Bonet, wife of Philip Yeo

From Faye,

There seems to be some contradictory information in Philip Yeo's wife and I hope that you can assist in clarification The IGI index, citing source film 0916953, says that Philip Yeo married Margaret Bonet on 4 Jul 1704 Yet when I borrowed this film, there is a record for the marriage of Phillip Yeo and Margaret Bond not Bonet on the same date, 4 Jul 1704 Did you have any further information either way? Regards Faye Skilbeck

Well Done Faye, Margaret was indeed a Bond, and baptised in North Tamerton on the 5th September, 1683, daughter of Richard Bond & Julian.

Dear Sheila I am not sure if you are interested in this photo for your website, but thought that I would send you this photo of Anna Maria Yeo( 19th July 1848-Aug 1928) and her husband Thomas Martin ( Jan 1849-Dec 1938). The photos is not dated but was taken in Cornwall. I am not sure if you have had time to look at the other email and query that I have sent you, but understand how busy you are. I enjoy looking at your site and its regular updates This family tree business is addictive. The more recent information is proving elusive but it is fun trying Regards Faye Skilbeck

From Gail

Hello Sheila Have just read your request for new email submissions. I am Suzanne Yeos(she married John Crago)g grandaughter. I have written you before so possibly you have mine. Nonetheless you will have it again.

Hello I have been digging and occasionally come up with more data. You may already have it but in the event you do not---Susannah Yeo married Francis Crago in Duloe March 28 1843.They had John born 1843,Mary Ann 1845, William T 1847, Charles 1849, Thomas 1853, Francis 1856, Samuel 1858 and Isaac in 1860.Their oldest son John moved to Michigan prior to 2892 as that is when the rest of the family followed him. He had married a Caroline Beaglehole and I will send the ships manifest of her and her children. The Samuel in the manifest is my grandfather. He left Michigan and moved to Ontario with his wife and children. File under G if you don't require this and I will never know. Take care. Gail Westergaard. PS The Wm T Crago left Michigan with his wife as she was in danger of losing her leg,and returned to England for good medical care. She lived to be 90.

Subject: YEO surname in Plymouth Greetings from a baking hot Bilthoven, Holland. I have a YEO connection (my paternal grandmother was SUSAN YEO) and am wondering if we have any information we can trade. I rather suspect that you will have more than me but for what it's worth here goes. Having concentrated so far on my paternal grandfather's line I thought it about time to do some preliminary investigation into his wife's ancestry. What I have so far is: EDWIN PROUSE HAWTON married SUSAN YEO in Hebburn, Co Durham 6 June 1905 - presumably Hebburn because he was in the Navy at the time and was stationed near there? Both were natives of (as am I) or with family connections to the Plymouth area (Plymouth as it is now at any rate). According to the censuses I have seen she was born in Bickleigh - the one near Plymouth I suspect - in circa 1875. In 1881 the family consisted of father WILLIAM, a coachman, mother SELENA, and 6 children aged from 1 to 9 living at Efford Lane, Compton Gifford (now known as the Laira area of Plymouth) - this from the CD set. Something I saw once suggested to me that they were at number 5. William's birthplace was given as Gulval, CON and Selena seems to have been from St Germans. I rather suspect that the family moved around a bit within the Plymouth area as father's employer changed. By 1891 all plus 2 more children were at 12 Station Road, Plympton St Mary with the exception of "my" Susan who was somewhere else, by then about 17 and in service I suspect. Family oral (aural?) tradition had it that her mother was once in service to Scott (of the Antarctic fame) but I have not tried to verify this in any way. Yet the birthplace of one of the children (1881 census) does say, Outlands, Devon which gives some credence to the story. Susan's parents were from Cornwall - father William from Gulval (1881 census) or Duloe (1891 census) and mother Selena from St Germans, born respectively circa 1840 and 1844 (from census data). The 1851 census for Cornwall CD has only one William which fits the bill age-wise and that says he was born St Neot. So your guess is as good as mine here I imagine. And that's it so far. I know something of what happened to one or two of her siblings, but there again so may you. If there is any information you have which you think may be of use to me I would be very grateful - it's not that easy from here in Holland to consult primary sources. If you think I may know something you want to know I would be more than willing to pass it on. I have for example somewhere a photograph, undated, of the coachman and most of his brood. I could (photo)copy this and send it on if you wish. No scanning facilities currently I'm afraid! Regards, Brian Hawton Email: brianhawton@wish.net

This is the photograph Brian sent. It includes William & Selina with their grandchildren.
