Fearless Females 2014: Brickwall: Sarah YEATES 1780

Sarah YEATES was my 4th great grandmother on my father's side.  She was christened on 14 August 1780 at the Independent Meeting House in Chudleigh, Devon, and had her daughter, Johanna, in 1808 aged 28.  Her father was William YEATS, so she may have been unmarried, as Johanna took her mother's surname.  There is no record of a husband either before or after the birth, and I have yet to find any other surname.

I cannot find her death record, and her surname is spelt variously YATES, YEATS and YEATES.

If I knew where to look, she might not be a brick wall...

Is she familiar to you? Does she appear in your family tree?

Once again, in honour of National Women’s History Month, Lisa Alzo of The Accidental Genealogist blog presents Fearless Females: 31 Blogging Prompts to Celebrate Women’s History Month.  I know this is really US-centric - but that's not going to stop me honouring my own Fearless Females...
