Joseph married Julia Evelyn Williams in 1884 and they lived at Fisherton de la Mere (between Salisbury and Warminster) and later at Barry (South Wales). He worked as a bailiff and died in 1930. Julia died in 1933 and they share a grave in Barry cemetery.
They had ten children:
Joseph Stanley (Stan) about 1885 - 1947
Elizabeth about 1886 - about 1892
John Reginald (Reg) born 1888
Kate Evelyn (Kitty) 1890- 1990 (died aged 100)
Harold William 1891 - 1942

Marion Bessie (Betty) born 1895
Francis William (Frank) 1898 - 1917
Charles Frederick born 1900
Herbert Edward 1902 - 1999
Working backwards from Joseph, there were the following at Raddington, Somerset:
John Yeandle (1821-1895) who married Caroline Taylor (about 1824-1871) in 1876.
John Yeandle (1801-1889) who married Mary Langdon (1797-1853) in 1821.
John Yeandle (about 1765-about 1824) who married Elizabeth (Betty) Davys (born about 1768) in 1800.
John Yeandle (born about 1733) who married Jenny Davys (born about 1726) about 1763.
John Yeandle (about 1710-about 1795) who married Grace Tarr (about 1710-about 1762) in 1732.
Before that it could be these two (still at Raddington)
Thomas Yeandle (about 1675-1719)
Thomas Yeandle (about 1645-about 1726) and his wife Mary

Here's a document entitled "a Genealogy of the Yeandle and Davys family" about John Yeandle 1710-1795 (thought to have been written about 1830).
