1757 ITEM: In Fielding Lewis's family bible is a reference to Charles Yates at the birth/christening of one of the Lewis's newborn babes. The family bible is listed in the Virginia archives library under Washington Papers. The entry is made by Fielding Lewis in 1757 and lists Charles Yates as Godfather. He is not our Charles Yates (born.1752) to George and Frances Lewis Yates but a close friend of Fieling Lewis. Charles Lewis Yates (b.1752) was Fielding Lewis nephew.
Charles Lewis Yates, son of Captain George Yates and his wife, had attained maturity at the death of his father in 1777. If he were willed a portion of the estate of his father, he disposed of it privately, inasmuch as there are no references to his conveying land in the order books. Charles settled in Culpeper Co, VA, in abt. 1783, in the western portion which is now within the limits of Rappahannock County. He presumably followed his older brother John Yates who had already patented land along the Thornton River. He became active in the Primitive Praise House at Thornton's Gap, near Sperryville. Brother Charles Yates was listed in the first minutes of the church on 12 Jan 1788. Until his death, there are numerous references to him as delegate to the association and as moderator.
1778 COURT: Caroline Co, VA, Order Book 1777-1780, Folio 84, May. "On motion of the said Def by William Bowles, his attorney a commission is granted him to take the deposition of Peter Dudley, Benjamin Partlow and Charles Yates de bene esse giving legal notice of the time and place appointed."
1782 TAX: Caroline Co, VA. The land tax list showed that Charles Yates was conveyed 167 acres of land by Presley Thornton in that year, but he did not appear as land owner in 1783 or other years.

1802 REL: There are references to Rev. Charles Yates as moderator. Charles Yates, though apparently raised in the Anglican Church, became an active member of the Thornton's Gap Primitive Baptist Church of what became Sperryville. The minutes of the Church on 12 Jan 1788 have this notation: "In the case of Sister Mary Underwood we find by Brother Charles Yates she denies this, it is therefore dismissed." Until hisdeath there are numerous references to him as "delegate to the association", as "moderator for the meeting", and the like. On 12 Dec1789, it was agreed that the congregation would meet on the first Sunday in January "to consider whether Charles Yates shall be ordained to preach the gospel". And in 1802 there are references to the meeting with Charles Yates as moderator.
