Yeomans & Toone/Tune Y-DNA match and family connection

I'm trying to locate the family connection between James Yeomans and James Toone. I have the following document....

01 November 1662
Old Rappahannock County, Virginia
Deed Books 1656 - 1664, Part 2 p. 260

Bequest by James Yeomans

Know all men that I James Yeomans of the County of Rappa. Planter do freely give unto James Toan(sic) Son & Heir unto James Toane(sic) of the Sd. County, Planter, one pied heiffer black and white with a Crop on the left and nick on crop on the right Ear. To have and to hold the said Heiffer with her increase for Ever and furthermore. I said James Yeomans do hereby acknowledge the same in Court when required. I have sett my hand this first of November 1662.

James Yeomen
Test. Thos. Freshwater
Thos. Coley

James Toone married twice, and it is his first wife that I believe may have been a Yeomans. Also Old Rappahannock County was formed from Lancaster County in 1656.

And our Tune/Toone family Y-DNA is in the same Haplogroup as some of the Yeomans:
Haplogroup R1b1a2a1a1b5a, also known as R-SRY2627(also known as M167). The places of highest frequency for this group are Spain (esp. Catalonia), Western France, Cornwall, and Wales. This represents the Catalano-Gascon subclade of the Italo-Celtic group.

Anyone with information on the Yeomans in Colonial Virginia, or those matching the Y-DNA, please get in touch.
