The early Yelland family of St.Stephen in Brannel, Cornwall

 

†††† Thomas Yolland alias Welbroke was born about 1577 probably in South Brent, Devon and moved with his family to St.Stephen in Brannel around 1605-1620. It is not known why he moved to Cornwall, but there may have been a family rift as he is the only sibling not mentioned in the will of his brother William.

†††† His descendants remained in the parish for the next 200 years, mainly as tenant farmers of the Boconnoc Estate, the principal landowner of the parish. From the early 1800ís onwards, with the growth of the china clay industry, many of the family moved into this new industry as labourers, clay agents and captains. Also from around this time, many Yellands moved to adjacent parishes and beyond, and some emigrated to America, Australia and South Africa. There are still Yellands in the parish today. We are attempting to identify every descendant of Thomas.

 

†††† The tree below charts the tenancies of the various tenements as passed down through the generations to 1841. The information is taken mainly from surviving wills and other parish records. The names in blue at the bottom of the tree are all the Yelland farmers in the 1841 census of St.Stephen.
