George Henry Yoxall was born in Penrhyndeudraeth in 1876. His father, William Yoxall was Station Master at Minffordd in 1901.

George was a clerk at Minffordd in 1893-6. The 1901 census records him as a Station Master (probably Penrhyn) and this seems to have continued until 1912 when he became Station Master at Tan-y-bwlch. He remained there until he died of the flu in 1919.

Boyd[1] says George was a clerk at Penrhyn station in 1900 at a weekly wage of 17/- but the 1901 census describes him as station master there.
