Sir William Yea

David Yea married Joan Brewer at Brompton Ralph in 1720.

The fourth of their nine children was William Yea (1727–1806), who benefited from his family’s accumulated wealth and was made a baronet in 1759 by King George II.

William Yea and his wife Julia Trevelyan had six children; the baronetcy passed to their grandson William Walter Yea (1784–1862) and to their great grandson Henry Lacy Yea (1798–1864).
