About the family crest.
No, Richard (the Immigrant) Yarborough was never married to Frances Proctor! There was a contemporary English Richard Yarborough who was married to Frances, but neither ever left England.
Welcome to our site!
Thanks for visiting our site, which is part of the out-reach function of our Association. That is, it allows us to make all Yarbroughs (however the name may be spelled) aware of the history, accomplishments and lineages of our extended and allied families. While most of the genealogical focus is on the Yarbrough lineages, although we hope to include more information about our allied families in the future.
What We Do...
Our mission and on-going activities are:
We willingly share our information, asking only that full attribution be given to The Yarbrough National Genealogical & Historical Association, Inc., (YNGHA). The YNGHA is a not-for-profit organization chartered by the Commonwealth of Virginia.
Membership in the YNGHA is open to anyone who is a member of one of our extended Yarbrough families or of an allied family. An online application form is available, as is a mail-in form.
The January issue of the Quarterly is now available.
It's time to renew your dues!

Dues are $30.00 year, and entitle members to the Yarbrough Family Quarterly and (as discussed above) access to everything on this web site.
Who We Are...
We Yarbroughs represent the character which makes our nation great. While there is little doubt that our roots are from one of the oldest houses of Old England, we in America are yeomanry through and through. We are farmers, craftsmen, merchants, doctors, teachers, clergy, performing artists, civil servants, warriors, and more. Without us and our kind, life as we know it would be considerably different. We believe in our Maker, our family, our country, and ourselves. We do not accept charity from the state; rather, we give to others as much as we can. We do not whine and complain about our lot; we do what we can as best we can. We believe in leaving each place better than when we arrived. Above all, we respect others and welcome them into our lives. We have a strong sense of duty, civic pride, and a firm belief in justice. All in all, we are a good family, and each of us help make it so.
