1. Jane’s birth had been registered as Adelaide Jane Stoyle at Islington in the third quarter of 1867, but she was recorded as Jane Adelaide Stoyle when she married John Treble Yeo in 1894 (marriage registered at Totnes in the third quarter).
2. John and Jane are recorded in the 1911 census at Ottery, a hamlet close to Lamerton and to the main road between Tavistock and Launceston. Also listed are their son Wilfred Reggie Yeo (age 6) and four-year-old nephew Leslie Frank Stoyle.
3. John and Jane are recorded in Kent in the 1921 census, at 142 Ramsgate Road, Margate in the household of their son-in-law Charles Woodward. John is a 48-year-old waiter working at a local boarding-house, Jane is 54, and their son Wilfred (age 16) is also listed. Others in the household include Leslie Frank Yeo (age 14, listed inaccurately as Charles’s brother-in-law), Charles’s 26-year-old wife Gladys Woodward and his niece Eveline Rose Stoyle (a 24-year-old visitor). John appears to have remained in the area after 1921, as his death was registered at Thanet.
