John Yeo and Rebecca Rolle – a marriage that joined two Yeo lines

John Yeo and Rebecca Yeo married at Hatherleigh in 1598. They were related, as Rebecca’s mother Margaret Rolle née Yeo was John’s third cousin: John and Margaret were great grandchildren of brothers Robert Yeo (1455–1529) and Nicholas Yeo (c1457–c1549).

John and Rebecca’s descendants – in Hatherleigh, Merton, South Tawton, Virginia and Prince Edward Island – therefore have dual Yeo lines of descent.
