      The first definitely located Yeatman, from whom the family recorded on the chart is descended, was John Yeatman (1). He first appeared in court records as executor of the will of Joshua Lawson in Richmond Co., Virginia, 1/11/1715. He must have been a man of standing in the community, and at least thirty years old, to have been placed in such a position. His standing is further shown by having been appointed Gent. Justice for Richmond Co. 1/3/1721. He died before 4/4/1737, when an inventory for his estate was filed. ... He married Hannah Lewis, only daughter and heir of Joseph Lewis. It is interesting to note that Lewis is still being used as given name in the family to this day. Hannah deed land, inherited from her father, to her eldest son John (2) 3/31/1753. She died prior to 8.4.1761, when a court action was closed; "Abated, the Plaintiff being dead."
