1. The Phillimore transcription of the marriage records them as Isaac Yoe and Mary Corney.
2. Isaac appears to have been a grandson of Bernard Yeo and Emmet Thorne of Stratton – see A butcher from Hill Head?.
3. Isaac was buried at Lanteglos in 1762, surviving Mary by seven years.
4. The John Yeo who married Eleanor May at Blisland in 1813 might have been Mary’s grandson. Further research is required.
