John Triplet and Joan Yeo

Joan or Jone Yeo was born about 1515, the youngest of four children of William Yeo and Joan Fulford.

She married John Triplett, probably at Padstow in 1543 – there were Tripletts at Padstow and Poundstock at about this time. There appears to be no record of any children from the marriage.

William and Joan’s other three children were:
– Robert Yeo, who became the heir to his grandfather Robert Yeo on the death of his father William Yeo; he married Mary Fortescue, daughter of Bartholomew Fortescue of Filleigh and Ellen Moore of Moor Hayes, Collumpton, who married in 1522. Mary later married Robert’s brother Humphrey
– Humphrey Yeo, who lived in London during the mid 1500s; he married Mary Yeo, widow of his brother Robert
– Alice Yeo, who married Humphrey Coles of Derworthy, Milton Damerel.
