I don't think there is a "pat" answer to this question. In my genealogican wanderings I have seen the name spelled YEALING, YELDING, etc. We go back to the fact that most documents were written by people who spelled it the way it sounded. If the subject knew how to write, it helped, but not always. It is my assumption that the word "YEILD" is a common English word, and the name was thus spelled.
