My LivingDNA UK results

Last year I signed up with LivingDNA for their DNA analysis to see where in the UK my DNA maps to. They claimed to be able to make the map due to their colaboration with The Peoples of the British Isles project. At this time they have samples from Great Britain and Northern Ireland. They are working to obtain results from Eire so they will be able to map people of mainly British ancestry to locations within both parts of the Isles.

Here are my results:


Except for the Cornish component this matches my known British ancestry.
  • Aberdeen: John Burnett and Lucretia Johnston of Aberdeen and Edinburgh, Scotland to Old Rappahannock, Virginia Colony.
  • Berkshire: Joseph Phipps and Mary Benfield of Reading went to Pennsylvania Colony. Quakers.
  • Carmarthen: Maud Richard of Llanllwich, St. Peter's Parish, Carmarthen, Wales to Pennsylvania Colony where she married Rowland Powell.
  • Cheshire: Samuel Hotchkis from Doddington, Whitchurch, Shropshire to New Haven Colony (Conn.).
  • Joseph Helsby, of Kingsley, Cheshire and Jane or Joan Lockett of Frodsham, Cheshire to Pennsylvania Colony. Quaker.
  • Katherine Gandy, of Overly Whitley, Cheshire to Pennsylvania Colony. Quaker. Married to Isaac Richardson.
  • Devon: George Boone of Stoke Canon, Devon and Mary Maugrige, of Bradnitch, Devon to Pennsylvania Colony.
  • Lancashire: Isaac Richardson to Pennsylvania Colony. Quaker. Married to Katharine Gandy.
  • Lincolnshire: Matthew Moulthrop and Jane Nicholl,from Wrawby, Lincolnshire to New Haven Colony, (Conn.).
  • Norfolk: Edmund Creekmore (Crickman) of Norfolk, Norfolk to Norfolk, Virgina Colony.
  • Worcestershire: Thomas Farley, Gent., of Worcester, Worcestershire and Jane ----- to Jamestown, Virginia Colony (earliest confirmed immigrant ancestor, 1623 on the Ann).
My genetic cousin, Debbie Kennett, has two very detailed posts on her LivingDNA results which I recommend everyone interested in this analysis read: My living DNA results part 1 My living DNA results part 2
