      "Colonial and Revolutionary Families of Pennsylvania, Volumes I-III Yeates Family

      John Yeates, third son of Jasper, the Judge and Councillor, born at Upland, March 1, 1701, accompanied his parents in their removal to New Castle county, when but a child.

      Under his father's will he inherited the mansion, mills, wharfs, etc., at Chester, and he became a shipping merchant, doing a large business with the West Indies. He later removed to the Island of Barbadoes, where he was living in 1741. About ten years later he removed to Philadelphia and purchased of his nephew Joshua Carpenter wharves and other property on Water street, and also land in Wicacoa, where he was a resident, 1757.

      He was some years very prosperous, and in 1748 executed a will disposing of such large sums as to indicate that he was then possessed of a considerable estate. He, however, met with heavy losses, and in 1762, when making an application to the English government for a position as Comptroller of Customs for the Colony was very much reduced in circumstances. Chief Justice William Allen made a personal appeal to the Honorable Thomas and John Penn, in which he states that John Yeates is "a very honest man, an old School Fellow of mine, who has been much reduced by misfortunes of Trade." July 24, 1764, he was commissioned Comptroller of Customs at Poconoke, at the head of Wicomico River, Maryland. He died at Vienna, Dorset county, Maryland, October 9, 1765. He married, 1730, Elizabeth Sidebotham, born October 16, 1704, died September 16, 1753."
