Yewd/Youd of Weaverham Cheshire
I am researching thename YOUD /YEWD from Weaverham and Frodsham areas around 1700.
My ancester was Ann Youd married Richard DRINKWATER in Oct 1722 at St. Michaels Chester.
Her father was given as John YEWD and Anne ROWEfarmer,
So John was born around 1670 or so.
Ann was buried 21 Sep 1735 in Frodshamshe also had a sister Elena who married William Milner a shoemaker. Elena later lived at Witton Northwich,. she also probably had a brother John too.
The surname YOUD/YEWD is spelt both ways in documnets I have seen,
Would like to hear from any body else searching for family in Cheshire with this surname.
