Yews do not really,like being transplanted. Or moved. It's such a rough,,durable, drought resistant, cut back resistant plant yet it suffers when moved invariably.
However, you say it thrived on being moved. Could be lime blown onto the foliage causing burn, etc. but yews are tolerant of lime in the soil. Lime is caustic so pretty sure that's the cause.
I would leave well alone for now, not water or feed. Hopefully it will settle down and you can prune out the affected areas later. I would wait until early next spring and give it a prune. What variety is it?
