      George Yeates,4 son of Jasper and Catharine (Sandelands) Yeates, was born in Pennsylvania April 5,1695. He spent his boyhood at Upland, and accompanied his parents in their removal to New Castle. Here he continued to reside after his father's death on Mr. Yeates's plantation below New Castle, bequeathed to him by his father; and he afterwards acquired from his brother Jasper several hundred acres of contiguous land, on the west side of Mill Creek, reaching to New Castle, the remainder of their father's large estate in that vicinity, besides part of the "Town's Marsh," and lots at the south end of the town bought by Jasper Yeates, senior, of Gov. Markham. He was a "farmer," styled, also, in civil records "gentleman." He married Mary, younger daughter of Major John Donaldson, who emigrated from Galloway, Scotland, and settled as a merchant at New Castle, becoming a Justice of the Peace and Judge of the Provincial Court, and Representative of New Castle County in the Assembly, as well as Member of the Provincial Council. Mrs. Yeates's mother was Elizabeth, daughter of Lucas Rodenburg, Vice-Director of the island of Curacoa from about 1646 until his death in 1657, by his wife Catrina, daughter of Roelof Jansen and Anneke Jans, and, at the time of her marriage with Mr. Donaldson, widow of Ephraim Georgius Herman, eldest son of Augustine Herman, and second Lord of Bohemia Manor, uncle to Ephraim Augustine Herman, who married George Yeates's cousin-german, Isabella Trent. Mrs. Yeates was baptized in New York, July 1, 1696. She inherited by her father's willf all Major Donaldson's "land, marsh, and improvements in and adjoining to the town of New Castle," which she parted with, however, not long after her marriage with Mr. Yeates. She survived her husband, letters of administration on his estate being granted to her July 23,1747. She resided in 1758 at Christiana Bridge, White Clay Creek Hundred, New Castle Co. Mr. and Mrs. Yeates had eight children, born on their plantation near New Castle.
