Henry is a judge – his occupation is noted as ‘Barrister at law not practising. Registrar King’s Bench Divn. Ireland’ – and his 26-year-old unmarried daughter Emily Alice Yeo is recorded with him. Also present are visitors Kathleen Yeo (age 53, a widow born in Co. Monaghan) and Olive Mary Yeo (30, single, born in Co. Dublin) [note 1] and two servants. According to the return, Henry and Emily were born in Dublin.
