My relationship to Frances Harriett Yates

Here’s a very quick post – something I’ve just ‘woken up’ to!

I’d just started work on the first of my ‘Mecham family’ blogs when I suddenly realised something glaringly obvious about Fanny Yates that hadn’t dawned on me before.

It is quite simply this:

Although there is no absolute proof that Frances (Fanny) Harriett Yates is the mother of my great grandfather Edward Cavendish Yates, there is enough evidence to be sure that she is a distant relative of my great grandmother, Priscilla Jane Mecham, and therefore myself and my cousins of three generations.

Well that is good news!

I’ll be back in a bit with the Mechams of East London.

Here’s a taster….

William Mecham, my 4th great grandfather was born in 1758 and Thomas Mecham, his son, was “admitted into the Freedom of the City of London by Patrimony” in 1822.
