Re: YEATES/YATES/YEATS in Wiltshire, England
My great-great-grandfather was Henry YATES/YEATS, born c1794, married Hannah NEAL in 1819 and died 1867 at Sherrington in Wiltshire. Henry & Hannah had 9 children, Samuel, Richard, Elizabeth, Charles, Mary, Emma, Anna, John and George. Richard and John (my great grandfather) emmigrated to Australia in 1853/4. Have been unable to find record of Henry's birth to find name of parents. Have found Isaac YATES, b. 1740, died 1811, married 1768 to Rebecca HOWSE at Sherrington. They had children, John, Isaac, James, Sarah, Martha, Samuel and Rebekah, but do not know whether they are connected to my family. Hope that we may be able to find something in common.
