Caption for Yelvertoft, Tanney Lane C1955:
Yelvertoft stands near the Grand Union Canal, on a stream which flows into the Avon. The village side streets are reminders of local farmers who long ago made their living off the land here. In the early part of the 20th century the nearby wharf was still a bustling place.
I have traced my family back to Yelvertoft in the mid 1700's. My family name is York and we are descendants of Thomas York who married Elizabeth Perkins in the late 1700's in Yelvertoft. If you can help me go further back or are related in any way please contact me. THANKS
