Grace Banbury and John Yeo


1. John Yeo was born 09 May 1730 in Launcells, Cornwall, and died 14 Jan 1789 in Launcells, Cornwall. He married Grace Banbury 23 Feb 1759 in Launcells, Cornwall, daughter of Thomas Banbury and Grace Yeo. She was born 03 Sep 1728 in Launcells, Cornwall, and died 23 Feb 1784 in Launcells, Cornwall.

Children of John Yeo and Grace Banbury are:

  • 2 i. Grace Yeo, born 20 Sep 1759 in Launcells, Cornwall.
  • 3 ii. Ann Yeo, born 18 Mar 1762 in Launcells, Cornwall; died 16 May 1762 in Launcells, Cornwall.
  • 4 iii. John Yeo, born 05 Jun 1763 in Launcells, Cornwall; died 27 Aug 1764 in Launcells, Cornwall.
  • 5 iv. Ann Yeo, born 10 Aug 1765 in Launcells, Cornwall; died 16 Sep 1787 in Launcells, Cornwall.
  • 6 v. James Yeo, born 05 Jul 1772 in Launcells, Cornwall.

This tree has thrown up new information and could help with the Yeo Ancestry in the Stratton/Launcell area. I will be researching this again when the Banbury family pages are under control.


This is the Yeo Tree I have for Launcells, with Henry Yeo & Marion Trim as the parents of William. Henry's father was probably Bernard Yeo which links the branch back to the Stratton Yeos.

My other query is what happened to James Yeo born 1772 in Launcells? No burial has been found and we do have a James Yeo born c. 1772 who emigrated to New Jersey and was the progenator of quite a dynasty in the USA. Could this be the James ?
