Notes: Richard Yealland was not of the parish of Cornwood according to his marriage banns. The baptism in Brentor has been selected for three main reasons: date (around when he would be born based on year of marriage), location (not Cornwood, but equally not too distant), and repetition of family names (William and Sidwell). Richard Yealland of Cornwood names his first daughter after his mother (Sidwell), his second after his wife (Jenny), and his first son after his father (William).
