William Yaw (1754–1829) married Betty Galsworthy at the parish church of St Peter, Tiverton on 5 June 1786. They were both previously unmarried and appear to have been resident in the parish, as banns of marriage had been read there. They baptised five children at the same church:

– John Yaw (see below)
– Mary Yaw (baptised 1794, died as a child)

– Mary Yaw (baptised 1799)
and then moved to Cheriton Fitzpaine, where two further children were baptised, with their surname recorded as Yawe:
– Mary Yawe (1802–1867, married John Guest)

John Yaw (baptised 1792, son of William Yaw and Betty Galsworthy) had a daughter Elizabeth Yaw, see below, with his wife Sarah.

Joseph Yaw (1804–1876, son of William Yaw and Betty Galsworthy) married Sarah Lavercombe at Poughill, near Crediton in 1833. They lived  at Cheriton Fitzpaine, where they had five children. They were all baptised with their surname recorded as Yeo:
