Born at Southampton, England, Yeo entered the British Navy, served throughout the Napoleonic Wars and won rapid promotion by his ability. In 1813, already a Commodore, he came to Canada to command British forces on the Great Lakes. Yeo successfully blockaded the American fleet in Sackett's Harbour for some months and subsequently commanded the naval forces at the capture of Oswego in 1814. Returning to England after the war he was posted to the West African Coast and died at sea while returning from that tour of duty.
Né à Southampton (G.-B.), Yeo entra dans la Marine royale. Ses exploits au cours des guerres napoléoniennes lui valurent un avancement rapide. En 1813, il prit le commandement, à titre de commodore, des troupes britanniques des Grands Lacs. Yeo organisa le blocus de la flotte américaine à Sackett's Harbour et le maintint pendant quelques mois, avant de commander les forces navales lors de là prise d'Oswego en 1814. Rentré en Angleterre après la guerre, il fut envoyé sur la côte occidentale de l'Afrique. Il mourut en mer pendant le voyage de retour.
