1. The birth of Dorothy Smallridge Yeo was registered at Bideford in the third quarter of 1905. She married Frederick William Hockaday in 1929, they had two daughters and she died in 1985. Was Dorothy related to this family? She might have been their youngest daughter, or their granddaughter (a daughter of their daughter Emmeline).
