Thanks to Martin for sending me this charming photograph of his great grandparents, Charles Yeo and Helen Perry with their children, Winifred (Jackie's mother in law), Charles, Harold, Gladys (Martin's grandmother) and Queenie.

The photograph was taken around 1930

 

 

  Charles moved to Southwick, Sussex from Cheriton Bishop in Devon around 1900 with his brother Alfred and was employed in a furniture warehouse. He then went on to own and run the furniture business from Maurice King in Southwick. He was an upholster by trade.

Hi Sheila,
Thank you for the reply. So pleased I got it right as I'v not long been using a computer. I started doing the family tree last June so its just a year. Cant believe all the help I'v had and how much I'v learned.
Please do use anything I'v sent. The signature is Charles Yeo 1879-1976. I was telling Martin Painter about how I came by it and sent him a copy too. I was visiting my brother who lives in Southwick Brighton. I asked where the local libary was as I wanted to look up the name Yeo. John went quiet then said I know that name. It worked out that part of my brothers back garden was owned by Charles Yeo who couldnt manage it and sold it to the people my brother bough his house from. So John had the paper work and I photo copied it. Its a small world.
Please do add me to your list and I'll do my best.
The Yeo web site is just great.
Good wishes Jackie Sloper

Hello Sheila, I was wondering if you would be in a position to assist me in filling in the other lines from the South Tawton Yeo's. If you remember, I sent you my information from my great-great grandmother Ann Yeo (b. 1848 to Joseph Yeo, b. 1805 at South Tawton.) I am now interested in filling in the other branches of the tree, up to the present day if possible. Would you be in a position to assist me, or put me in contact with others who may? I've already written to the others mentioned on your researchers link. Best Wishes Jan Brian Kingshott
