The Yarbrough National Genealogical & Historical Association (YNGHA) serves as an umbrella organization for the extended Yarbrough and allied families. Our families are primarily located in the United States and the British Isles. There are over a hundred–fifty variant spellings of our name; however we spell our surname, we are all Yarbroughs. The House of Yarborough, one of the oldest in Great Britain, traces its roots back to the mid–ninth century, AD. We've been in the New World since ca 1642, when Richard ("The Immigrant") Yarborough arrived and settled on the Mattaponi River in the Virginia Colony.
