Descendants of John Yeo and Frances Holman

Many Yeo lines stem from the descendants of John Yeo and Frances Holman, who married at Poundstock in 1616.

John and Frances’s great x4 granddaughter Susanna Yeo was baptised at Werrington in 1807 to Thomas Yeo and Elizabeth Mason. Susanna is later recorded as Susan; she married John Thomas Scown at St Mary Magdalene, Launceston in 1832. Five years later they emigrated – their descendants in South Australia have been traced by David Treloar.

Sheila corresponded with Teresa Drewett, Ian Maidment and Norma Biggs about some of John and Frances’s descendants. Martyn has expired the links to their line, as has David Treloar.

John and Frances’s grandson Peter Yeo married Ann Ivemay at St Mary Magdelene, Launceston in 1748; some of their descendants settled in the Portsmouth area and some emigrated to Australia.
