The marriage of Richard Yeo and Catherine Moyse at Launcells in 1774 is recorded in the parish register and dated 14 February: ‘Richard Yeo and Catharine Moyse of Poughill’. Some of their descendants emigrated to Prince Edward Island.
Richard’s origins are unclear. He does not, as some researchers have suggested, appear to be descended from Robert Yeo and Rose Cory of nearby Stratton.
