The 1911 census for Stokeinteignhead records the family of John and Katherine [sic] Yeo. They are living there with seven children, the youngest of whom whom is 11-month-old Edward Yeo. John is a gardener and the couple have been married for twenty years.
This census information matches two other records:
– The marriage of John Yeo and Catherine Lee at Christow in 1891
– The birth of their son Edward George Yeo at Stokeinteignhead in 1910.
Edward’s line appears straightforward: he went on to marry Emily Ann Stoyle at the parish church at Tormoham in 1931. The parish register shows Edward as bachelor and lorry driver, and records the bride – who might also have been known as Annie – as a spinster. They had one son: John Frederick Yeo, born in 1934.
However, the line back from John and Catherine is not easy to piece together. John might have been a son of John Yeo and Elizabeth Watkins Blatchford, who married at Moretonhampstead in 1870.
