The Yelland Line

Ruth Yelland was born in Heavitree, Exeter and baptised on 14th January 1824. She had a number of brothers and sisters and was the daughter of George Yelland and Ruth Barker who had married on 12th April 1808.

Although George and Ruth were married in Heavitree neither actually came from there - George Yelland was from Cheriton Fitzpaine and Ruth Barker was from Stoke Canon.

Ruth Barker (baptised 1st May 1785) was the youngest child of James Barker and Mary Gorfin who had married on the 20th January 1767 at Stoke Canon. James Barker was probably the son of Robert Barker and Mary Osmond of Broad Clyst but Mary Gorfin is something of a mystery as the surname is uncommon. There were Gorfins in Shillingford so she may have come from there although it is also possible that she did not come from Devon.

George Yelland (baptised 29th June 1783) was, like his wife, the youngest child. His parents - John Yealand and Mary Glanvill had married on 2nd April 1769 in Cheriton Fitzpaine. Both John and Mary were relatively young when they married but, as was the norm at the time their first child was born very soon after the marriage.

John Yealand was baptised on 19th May 1748 - the son of John Yelland and Joan Rich who had married on 6th January 1743. It is not known whether he had any brothers or sisters and nothing is known about his father (who may have come from another village). His mother was baptised in Cheriton Fitzpaine on 16th December 1718 - the eldest child of John Rich and Elizabeth Taylor. She had three brothers and two sisters. John and Elizabeth married on 28th January 1717/8.

Mary Glanvill was probably baptised on 7th May 1749, the second child of Richard Glanvill and Christian Uppercott who had married on 15th April 1745. Richard was probably the Richard Glanfield baptised on 6th December 1716 - son of Richard and Jone (nee Brooks) who had married on 28th January 1704/5. Christian Uppercott is another mystery woman as this surname is (like Gorfin) uncommon.
