      "[Colonial and Revolutionary Families of Pennsylvania, Volumes I-III] Henry Whelen, Jr.The Yeates family was founded in America by Jasper Yeates, a native of Yorkshire, who, after some years spent in trading ventures in the West Indies, settled in New Castle county, now Delaware, later locating in Chester, Pennsylvania, serving as a justice of the Chester county courts, and as an associate justice of the Pennsylvania provincial court 1704-1711, and as a member of provincial council from December 25, 1696 to his death in 1720. He had however returned to New Castle county some years prior to his death and was a justice there, 1717-1720. He married Catharine, daughter of James Sandelands, an early Scotch settler among the Swedes on the Delaware, and his wife Anika, daughter of Joran Jeen, or Kyn, who had come from Stockholm to the Delaware in 1642, with Governor Printz. Jasper Yeates was a member of the vestry of Christ Church, Philadelphia, and of St. Paul's Church, Chester, and was named one of the first board of burgesses of Chester in the charter of 1701. He was always a very strong adherent of and enjoyed the confidence of William Penn, by whom he was named for many important commissions pertaining to his colony on the Delaware, among them as dedimus potestatem, to administer the oath to several of the early Colonial governors. Jasper and Catharine (Sandelands) Yeates had four sons and two daughters.

      Their fifth child, John Yeates, born May 1, 1701, inherited his father's mansion, mills, wharves, etc. in New Castle county and at Chester and became a prominent shipping merchant, doing a large business with the West Indies. He removed to Philadelphia about 1745. He was commissioned comptroller of customs at the head of Wicomico River, Maryland, July 24, 1764, and died in that province, October 9, 1765. He married in 1730, Elizabeth Sidebotham."
