Stumbled on to Yielding folk tale. We are desendants of Yeldon. A traditional Sub-Gaelic translation of brigand. Apparantly in 1517 a Duke of not so honorable mention was named Yeldon. He tortured and murdered the peasents around his keep. Gaining the attention of the house of Lords and subsequentlty jailed for a long time and finally banished. His wife and child thrown on to the streets,The lord himself was banished to AMERICA. That is how we got over here, sorry to break it to every one. That is the story I heard. I am proud to be related to a middle-ages villian.
