The Family Tree

Francis Yarrow
1796-1858

Francis Yarrow was the youngest known child of John Yarrow and his wife Mary (née Rayner) of Little Thetford, Cambridgeshire.

Francis married Anne Langford of Stretham, and the couple settled down to raise a family of six children.

By the 1851 census, Francis is noted as a 'Landed Proprietor' - whilst sounding an impressive sounding title, in reality it meant someone who owns land and lives off its produce (money or crops). The increased use of this in the mid-1800s was mainly down to vanity and it had little or no real meaning.

By the time of his death, Francis' estate was valued in 1859 as of a value below 100. He was noted as a 'Yeoman' and a John Eaden is noted as his Creditor to his Will. It seems he had lived beyond his means.

Anne outlived Francis by 22 years.
