George Yeo was baptised in the Somerset parish of Bleadon in 1753 to parents George Yeo and Mary Day. He lived in Bleadon all his life, married three times [note 1] and had five children [note 2].
George was mentioned in the edition of the BBC programme Who Do You Think You Are? that featured television presenter Laurence Llewellyn Bowen. Sheila advised the makers of the programme in 2007 and was able to tell them that George died at Bleadon on 7 October 1817 and left a will. She was also able to confirm that Laurence is descended from George’s second marriage.
