The above info came from Joan who has worked on the family tree and has traced the Yates family back to 1730 when Owen Yates married Sarah Scoles at Eastchurch on the Isle of Sheppey, where the family have lived ever since.

Dad's dad (Granddad Hare), also had brothers & sisters
Ron (married Lucy and had two children). Ron died of cancer and subsequently Lucy married Ron's cousin Eric. Eric had children Maurice and Barbara.

Dad's GreatGrandparents.

In the Census of 1880, Dad's Grandad is shown as the son of William Hare (born 1853 born in Beaconsfield, a chairmaker) and Mary Hare (born in 1850 in Wraysbury, Bucks).
Also shown are brothers William W (born 1876 at High Wycombe), Henry A (born 1877 at High Wycombe), and a sister Amy G (born 1880 in Beaconsfiled.

The census of 1901 shows William and Mary living in Hayes which is presumably where Arthur met Amy Jermy.

According to Ema there was another son Oliver, presumably born after 1880 Oliver, later living in Chalfont St Peter and the father of Eric (This Eric later married Lucy, Ron's wife). There were also two ladies Hilda and Mabel probably living in Chesham.
