  a. William Walter Yea (b 08.10.1756, dvp 27.12.1804)
  The following is supported by Burke's 'Royal Families' (#CCX. 'Sir William Walter Yea, Bart').
  m. (01.05.1783) Jane Newman (dau of Francis Newman of Cadbury House)
  (1) Sir William Walter Yea of Pyrland, 2nd Bart (b 1783-4, d 20.05.1862) had issue (sons dvpsp)

  (2) Sir Henry Lacy Yea, 3rd Bart of Pyrland (b 18.11.1798, d unm 31.08.1864)
TCB suggests that Henry Lacy was "4th and yst. s. of the 1st Baronet" but 'Royal Families' shows a Henry Lacy in this generation who, given his birthdate (given by TCB), must have been the 3rd Bart.
