John was baptised at Stoke Damerel in 1818. In the same parish he married Mary Ann 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 Pltymouth and settled in Gibraltar, where they spent the rest of their lives, and had at least three children:
– Edward Yeo (1842–1888), married Maria Amalia Macedo, six children
– William Yeo (1846–1894), married Francesca Licudi, one son
– Thomas James Joseph Yeo (1851–1909), married Josephine Montolla
John’s third forename has been variously spelt Broderick, Brodrick, Broadlick and Brodlick. His mother’s name and his line of descent are unknown. Was he connected to Edward Yeo and Ann Broadlick, who married at Landrake in 1791?
