Or the ones in Balazar.

The ones in Balazar came across with Balazar himself from the edges of the Dara Happan Empire, just before the DragonKill. Then a lot of them marched into the jaws of the dragons, leaving behind a withered rump of what had been. They are definitley Pelorian, although probably not Lunar. There is a lot of Votanki influence on them as well. In the history of Balazar, the Balazarings attacked the Empire quite often until the Enmpire decided that enough was enough and occipied one of the Citadels.

In fact, thinking about it, the Balazar Yelmalians probably pre-date those in Sartar as they were settled pre-Dragonkill. The ones in Prax were settled pre-Dragonkill as well, so perhaps they had a similar source. Perhaps not, though, as Balazar came from Dara Happa and those in what is now Sartar were fairly indigenous.
