If you have last name sake are we all related ?
did not know there are so many yates
I heard we came from Germany. Hehe your all my long lost relatives...
I thought we were Irish...? :( I'm American and most Americans are mutts....
I have found out that Yates is a scandinavian name and we origanly came over from sweeden via vikings. My census search on my family tree also traced back to sweeden. my family moved to England from scotland not so long ago where yates are a popular last name too.
I've recently learned that Yates is a Scandinavian word with many different spellings. One of those is the word Geats which should really be pronounced Yates. This was a tribe in southern Scandinavia and mentioned in Beowolf although mispronounced as Geats in the , it should have been pronounced Yates
So are we norman or scandinavian?
This is so cool . I have family all over the world . Also , my birthday is the day that Edwarde Yates and Jane Atkinson got married . That's pretty exciting !
My family are from newton heath and blackley area of south manchester

My father was told by an Spanish historian that the name Yates was derived from the Spanish for yacht. They were called los Hombres del los Yatez, living in abandoned boats in harbors in Spain. One of their number, a price on his head, patched his boat and sailed away before he could be arrested. Following the coast of Spain, then France, he was caught in a storm and blown across the English channel to be shipwrecked on the coast of Scotland. The rest is history, or not.
for some reason I associate the yates with griffen
is griffen remotely linked with yates
Ok so I heard somewhere that there was a Yates werewolf
