About us

According to well-documented sources, Christopher Youmans, b. ca. 1638 in England, immigrated to America in 1656, settling on Long Island NY, near Madnan's Neck. He m. Hannah (-----). Based on an inheritance from his brother William Yeamans, England is identified as his homeland. Based on his brother's will, the surname was originally "Yeamans". The most likely reason for the spelling change is that Christopher resided in a Dutch County and this is how the Dutch spell the English name Yeamans or Yeomans. Known Children of Christopher Youmans (Yeamans): Moses, Christopher, Solomon, Hannah, Thomas, Sarah, Mary and William. Christopher moved to Rye, Westchester Co., NY in ca. 1720.

Christopher’s descendants prospered, and continued to move up the Hudson between NY and Conn. Stories of the Youmans/Yeomans families in Dutchess County, Albany County, and many other NY counties are numerous. They participated in all the major wars, settled the land, and were some of the early pioneers moving ever westward.

Some notables include Edward Livingston Youmans, scientist, born in Coeymans, New York, 3 June, 1821; died in New York city, 18 January, 1887, and the Composer Vincent Millie Youmans, who was born in New York City on September 27, 1898. There is also the most probable link to the Yeamans family and to characters, such as Sir John Yeamans born about 1605 in Bristol, England, died about 1676 in Barbados (West Indies). He was the Governor of the British Province of Carolina. He is descended from a famous family line of Yeamans or Yeomans of Bristol, England. Sir Robert Yeamans (a brother or cousin) was a High Sheriff and Mayor of Bristol.

Grant Samuel Youmans wrote and researched the Youmans/Yeomans/Yeamans families extensively from the 1940s until his death in the early 1960s. He claimed that he had material linking all the early (1650-1675) Youmans pioneering families that settled in Virginia, Barbados, Massachusetts, and New York to each other and back to England to a common ancestor. Unfortunately, he died before he was able to complete his next book, and his extensive research materials, once held by the National Genealogy Society, have been lost or are being held in the hands of a private individual.

For this and many other reasons, Y-DNA research may hold the greatest promise for proving what Grant Samuel Youmans spent a good bit of time and a small fortune attempting to prove.

Christopher Yeamans (Youmans/Yeomans)

First Generation


1. Christopher1 YEAMANS was born in England circa 1638. His body was interred in Rye, Westchester, New York.
He married Hannah (YEAMANS). Hannah Yeamans is deceased. .
.
Greener states "Christopher Yeomans was evidently born in England (probably in Essex or Middlesex) before 1638 for there is a record in 1659 that he had sold land in Hempstead, L.I. It is not known whether he cam direct to Long Island from England or whether, like many others, he landed in Connecticut and then crossed the Sound to Queens County, Long Island (then known as 'Nassau Island').
"Hempstead, L.I. was purchased from the Indians in 1643 by John Carman and Rev. Robert Fordham, acting for their associates at Stamford, Conn. On Nov. 16, 1644 they procured a patent from William Kieft, the Dutch Governor of the New Netherlands. The first settlement was made in 1644 by between thirty and forty English families from Stamford and Wethersfield, Conn. They were joined by other English settlers from the inland including Capt. John Seaman who had secured title to a tract comprising more than twelve thousand acres, which in 1685, under the Dongan patent became part of the town of Hempstead.
"All the surrounding towns had been settled by the Dutch, but the English settlement at Hempstead was allowed considerable liberty in management of its own affairs.
"In 1647 the first recorded division of lands was made among the sixty-two freeholders.
"The minutes of the towns of Hempstead and North Hempstead since the year 1654 are preserved and they were printed in 1896 by order of the Town Board of North Hempstead, L.I. In those records we find the following references to Christopher Yeomans: Vol. 1, p. 117 - On Oct. 19, 1659 there is a record of the sale of fifty acres of land by Christopher Yeomans to Will Smith. Vol. 1, p. 154 - On March 22, 1664 an agreement was made between the townsmen and Christopher Yeomans for the keeping of the "East herd" of cattle for the ensueing year. Vol. 1, p. 201 - On June 18, 1666 a similar agreement was made with Abraham Smith on the same terms as with Christopher Yeomans. Vol. 1, p. 221 - On Dec. 6, 1669 there is a deed from 'William Theckston' to 'Christoffer Yemans' of a lot of land on Maddan's Neck, 'being number 43 as laid out at first'. Vol. 1, p. 241 - On the same date (Dec. 6, 1669) there is recorded a deed from 'Heneri Desboro' to 'Christofer Yemans' of one-fourth of a lot of land at Madnan's Neck 'which was laid out to Mr. Seaman at the first' numbered 42 and containing 170 acres, and adjoining the lot of 'Christofer Yemans'. Vol. 1, p. 239 - There is a recod of a deed dated Oct. 16, 1559 from 'Hereri Desberow' to 'Cornelius Mot' of 20 acres of land with a new dwelling house and tobacco house thereon, adjoining the land sold to 'Christopher Yomans'. Vol. 1, p. 323 - At a town meeting held, April 1, 1679 'The Cow Meadow at near Rockaway' was leased to 'Chrisofir Yemans'. Vol. 1, p. 369 - There is a note that on May 8, 1665 'Chistyfor Yomans beegeun too Coepe Cooues'. Vol. 1, p. 375 - Deed from Joseph Sutton to 'Christofir Yemans' a lot of land on Madnan's Neck containing 15 acres begin part of number 44. Vol. 1, p. 460 - 'Christopher Yeamans' is mentioned in the will of Rogger Pedly. Vol. 1, p. 479 - On Oct. 6, 1681 the name of 'Christopher Yeamans' appears on a petition for a piece of Commons.
"In the 'Annals of Hempstead' by Onderdonk, page 26, there is a record that on April 5, 1671, Christopher Yeomans brought suit against John Curtis; on page 30 there is mentioned a suit which he brought against Michael Clark on Feb. 2, 1676; on page 34 there are records of two suits, one brought against him by Elias Bailey on July 5, 1682 and the other on action, on the same date, of Ardway vs. Mott, in which the witnesses where Christopher Yeomans and Hannah, his wife; at page 54 there is a reference to a petition from him and other settlers at Madnan's Neck for the holding of religious services in that place - this was in January 1687; at page 56 there is given an assessment list dated Oct. 11, 1683 in which he was taxed on 15 acres of land, 2 oxen, 5 cows, 5 hogs and 2 horses.
"In 'Queens County in Olden Times' by the same author at page 10 there is given a record, copied from Vol. 20 of the Assizes, of a trial of Nathaniel Pearsall, Clerk of the town of Hempstead and Thomas Rushmore for riot trespass etc: the trial was held on Oct. 3, 1676 and the following is an extract from the testimony: -
'Christopher Yeomans being sworn says he was stripping off some tobacco in his house at Great Neck and heard men and Lieut. Mott come up, he asked him if he would go with him and borrowed his canoe. So they got in and rowed over to Cow Neck where he saw Richard Cornell and near twenty Hempstead men among whom was the prisioner at the bar, Thomas Rushmore who (Mr. Cornell saith) was the first who laid hold of and struck at the building which they quietly pulled down. Mr. Cornell first spoke to Yeomans, but he replied, 'I am none of them', Then Cornell said, 'Bear witness what ye see done.'
"In Thompson's 'History of Long Island' (Vol. II, page 18) there is printed an assessment list of the Town of Hempstead in the year 1685 from which it appears that 'Chistopher Yeumans' was one of the 160 taxable persons in the town, and that he was taxed on 150 acres of property.
"In the office of the Clerk of Queens Co. N.Y. there is a quaint instrument on file in Liber C, Folio 230. It's wording suggests either a deed or a will. It is dated April 7, 1711, executed Jan. 23, 1717-8. It grants to his son Solomon one-half of the land upon which he lives at Madnan's Neck, with his dwelling house and half of the orchard which Solomon is to have after his decease. He evidently divided his property equally between his two sons Solomon and William."
"Christopher Yeomans, his children and some of his grandchildren left Hempstead about 1719; as will be seen later they evidently sold all their lands there before that date.
"At some time before 1720 they crossed Long Island Sound and settled in 'The White Plains' in the old town of Rye, N.Y. (White Plains did not become a separate town until 1788).
"In Scharf's 'History of Westchester County' (Vol. 1, page 720, and Vol. II, page 661) there is printed a map of 'The White Plains' in Rye, N.Y., made in 1721, showing the sixteen houses comprising the settlement, one of which was the home of CHRISTOPHER YEOMANS (See also 'Baird's Rye' page 499). The situation of the house is thus described by Schard (Vol. 1, page 722) - 'On the north side of the road crossing the Bronx River, near Mr. Champanois' residience, was the home of CHRISTOPHER YEOMANS.' Christopher at that time must have been over eighty-five years of age."
Grant S. Youmans wrote: "Christopher Yeamans, Immigrant, was born about 1638, in England.
"When about twenty years of age, Christopher Yeamans emigrated from abroad. He lived for a time in New Haven, Conn. He was employed there by Sergeant Jefferies, before and after 10 Nov. 1656.
"This record, therefore, shows that Christopher first lived, as stated, in New England before crossing the Sound to Queens County, Long Island, then known as Nassau Island, New York State, where he established a permanent residence in the State of New York.
"Having been made a beneficiary under the terms of his brother's English will, and the fact that his brother, William Yeamans, had been living in England at the time of William's death, indicates England strongly as the former boyhood residence of Christopher Yeamans. Extract of the will is shown:
'William Yeamans of St. Giles in the Fields, Middlesex, yeoman, 24 Feb. 1656; proved 7 May 1687. I give and bequeath to my brother, Christopher Yeamans of Madnan's Neck in Queens County on Long Island, in the Province of New York in America, yeoman, the sum of five shillings. And whereas there is the some of one hundread and twelve pounds, fifteen shillings and six pence, silver money of New York aforesaid, due and owing unto me from my said brother, upon bond, as also the sum of three pounds, with the increase thereof, for goods lately sent to him, I do hereby order and appoint that if he my said brother, his executors or assigns, do and shall pay unto my executrix, the said sum of one hundred and twelve pounds, fifteen shillings and six pence, and do also account unter for the said sum of three pounds &c., then I do give and bequeath unto my said brother, twenty pounds like silver money of New York, to be equally divided between such of my said brother's children as shall then be living.
'I give and bequeath unto my sister, Anne Bakewell, widow, twelve pence; until William Gooden ten shillings to buy him a ring. All the rest of my goods &c., to my wife Elizabeth Yeamans, who I appoint sole executrix. Signed: William Yeamans Witnesses: Robert Crispe, Ric. dibbon, Sir John Turner.'
"The following brief extract may be a clew to the family and former home in England of Christopher Yeamans: The will of Thomas Crane, Gentleman of Kelvedon, Essex, dated 11 Nov. 1653, proved 6 Mar. 1654, mentioned 'certain messuages in Colchester which I purchased of Christopher Yeoman and John Yeoman, his son.'
