John was baptised at Stoke Damerel in 1818 to parents John Yeo and Elizabeth Harvey. His third forename has been variously spelt Broderick, Brodrick, Broadlick and Brodlick.

In the same parish he married Mary Amley Smith in 1840. The record of this marriage describes the groom as a blacksmith of 7 Spillier Opening, son of mariner John Yeo. The bride was a spinster of Mutton Cove, daughter of mariner Thomas Smith.

The couple left Plymouth and settled in Gibraltar, where they spent the rest of their lives, and had at least three children:

1. Married at a Catholic ceremony in Adelaide in 1930. Joseph’s second marriage was to Emily C. Wilkie in 1962.
2. According to a pedigree drafted by Sheila in 2001 – based on information from correspondent George Yeo – Joseph married Maria García de Morales and had the children shown. An unconfirmed pedigree by an Australian Yeo descendant differs, showing a different marriage for Joseph, with a son Francis John Yeo (1894–1967, married Alice Yeo) and a grandson Wilfred Francis Yeo (1930–1995, died in England). Further research is needed.
3. Marriage registered at the British Consulate in Gibraltar in 1945.
