Descendants of Archibald's grandson William show us that Archibald belongs to R1b1, SNP L21, down the L1335 branch, more specifically R-S7361, which branch is estimated to have formed 1050 years ago.
We would love to find genetic matches to help determine Archibald's origins.
Keep an eye on
The Big Tree Scot's Cluster and
DNASurnames (which has links to the YFull tree)
for an emerging picture of Archibald's (distant) Y-DNA relatives stuck at the same spot on the R1b tree of mankind.
Autosomal DNA is also providing clues as to likely family connections, several around Perthshire, in a growing number of triangulated groups of matches determined to be connected to either Archibald or his wife Margaret McEWAN.
Some of the more promising groups
2016 finally also saw a number of atDNA matches between a descendants of Archibald's son James, a descendant of dtr Margaret, and a descendant of what looked to be Archibald's son William, so we now believe the papertrail research on William's fate has been proven despite his disappearance from records prior to civil registraton.
