John had a direct line of descent from John Yeo and Rebecca Rolle, through families at Hatherleigh, Merton and South Tawton. He was baptised at Stoke Damerel in 1806 but moved to London, where he married Emma Allamby at Christ Church, Spitalfields in 1841.
John and Emma had children John Yeo, Edwin Robert Yeo, Emma Sophia Yeo and Mary Ann Yeo between 1842 and 1847.
John’s wife Emma died in 1849 and he married for a second time. This was at St Mary, Newington in 1853 to a widow, Maria Evans. The 1861 census records them at 12 Lapon Street, Bermondsey with Maria’s son George Evans and John’s children Edward and Mary Ann Yeo.
John Yeo appears to have died before the 1871 census was taken.
