James Yeo, 1774 emigrant

A correspondent has asked for information about James Yeo, who is recorded in the October 1774 passenger list for the SS Sims, sailing from London to Maryland [note 1].

In the list, James is described as an indented servant from Middlesex, a carpenter and joiner aged 21.

If you are related to James or can provide information about him, please use the Contact Us page to send us a message.

Can you identify the master carpenter or joiner to whom James was indented and with whom he was presumably travelling?
