The following comes from my Dad, Charles Yeilding of Dallas, Texas. Apparently both surnames have been in use for a long period of time.

Dad was researching the "Yeildings" in England. He found an English "Yeilding" dating back to ~ 1048 ad (near Nottingham). He also found a reference to a "Yielding" + several hundred years later.

He adds that the Yeildings were only in Ireland for about 120 years before immigratring to Canada (2 brothers, Richard Massey Yeilding-our relative + his brother Eager Yeilding) in 1820.

He also found a "Yielding" married to a "Yeilding" in Ireland- does this explain some of the family quirks?

Thanks Dad!
