Jone Yeo & John Triplett

Jone was the daughter of William Yeo and Joan Fulford, and probably born around 1510. As can be seen from the Hourglass tree above, Joan Fulford had quite a pedigree, but William Yeo died before his father Robert, so never lived at Heanton Satchville. In Robert's IPM, the properties are passed on to William's son, Robert and later Joan seems to have been living, as a widow in Bradworthy

Robert's IP taken 26 Nov, 1530 Devon delivered into court 15 May by John Pasmer. Inquisition taken at Exeter 3 May 1531 before John Hext esq., escheator after the death of Robert Yeo esq, by the oath of Roger Blewett, Anthony Pollard, John Carewe, Thomas Fortescue, Henry Denys, John Bydwell, Thomas Gibbs, John Pomerey, Thomas Hext, John Holway esquires and Roger Dene.:-

William Fulford, James Chudleigh and Roger Graynfild are dead; the other feoffees yet hold the premises to the use of Joan, who is yet living. William Yeo is dead. Robert Yeo died 5 Jan 1529/30 Next heir Robert son of William son of said Robert Yeo, aged 21.

In 1542 property in Myddlecot,in the parish of Black Torrington was released by Hugh Prust, gent to Johanna Yeo wid and her son Humphrey Yeo.

In 1546 this deed was taken out

This tree shows the relationship between the people mentioned in the Deed 30413

My apologies re the trees but it is very difficult to transfer trees from a gedcom file to the internet.
