are three versions of Visitations that I am aware of, and
each one is different, although they were all copied from
the original Visitation Rolls.
first version of the 1620 Devon Visitations, was copied
by Lt/Col Vivian in 1895 and should be viewed with caution
as there are many mistakes, both in the early descent and
some of the information he has added. The positioning of
the arms is important as these are carried on into the Rolle

of the Coats of Arms and if correct record the true Yeo
line of descent.
second version was copied by Mr Frederick Colby in 1881
and is from the 1564 Devon Visitations. This one has the
visitations for the Braunton Yeos (descended from William's
elder brother, Richard)
third version, which I have not included, was copied by
