In 1912, Florence Burrows, daughter of James and Lucy Jane Burrows, married James Yeo in the Crediton District of Devon, England. She was about 24 years of age. Not long afterwards, Florence and James moved to Australia and her brother Alfred joined them before the outbreak of World War I.
I would love to tell you more about their life in Australia and any family there, but there is little that I know, other than that they had a sheep farm on which Alfred worked before he enlisted in the Australian Expeditionary Force.
I can tell you that Yeo is a common Devon name. It derives from an old word for stream or small river. Many Yeo families moved to Australia.
If you are researching the Yeo name, I suggest you check out the work of Mrs. Sheila Yeo of Devon at:
