DNA Evidence Backing Up My Tree
I have taken an Ancestry autosomal DNA test. The list below shows most recent shared ancestors between myself and Ancestry subscribers who share DNA with me, according to a comparison of our trees. The number of matches is shown after the name, along with the strength of the matches in centimorgans (cMs).
Since only the most recent shared ancestors are counted, those further back in time will have a lower count. To get the full number of DNA matches, one would have to add up the matches in all the intervening generations.
The count was accurate as of the end of March 2022. Not included are several matches that were previously apparent but are no longer showing up because Ancestry members changed or removed their trees:
Paternal grandfather's side:
James Windebank (1 match, 8cM, 5x great grandparents)
George Lester and Catherine Roberts (2 matches, 20cM, 11cM, 4x great grandparents)
William Gregory (1 match, 9cM, 4x great grandparent)
John Watkins and Matilda Windebank (1 match, 15cM, 3x great grandparents)
James Crampton and Mary Ann Lamberth (2 matches 43cM, 27cM 3x great grandparents)
Henry Edward Lester and Lydia Husband (2 matches 34cM, 26cM, 3x great grandparents)
Thomas Husband and Ann Howse (1 match, 16cM, 3x great grandparents)
Paternal grandmother's side:
Thomas Upjohn and Charlotte Anna Rouse (3 matches, 10cM, 10cM, 10cM 6x great grandparents). These three people share a tree that seems to be missing a generation so the real link might be more recent.
James T and Anna Catherine Upjohn (2 matches, 11cM, 10cM, 5x great grandparents)
James Thomas Upjohn (4 matches, 11cM, 11cM, 10cM, 9cM, 4x great grandparent)
James Thomas Clements and Ann Rogers (2 matches, 21cM, 15cM, 3x great grandparents)
Thomas James May Smith and Rebecca Bailey (1 match, 26cM, 3x great grandparents)
Alfred Young and Rebecca Smith (1 match 39cM, 2x great grandparents)
Maternal grandfather's side:
Mary Busbridge's parents (1 match, 9cM, 5X great grandparents)
Benjamin Coleman and Mary Busbridge (2 matches, 11cM, 11cM, 4x great grandparent)
John Coleman and Jane Simmonds3 (3 matches 39cM, 24cM, 15cM, 3x great grandparents)
William Braim and Ann Franklin (4 matches 98cM, 40cM, 22cM, 9cM, 3x great grandparents)
Richard Stringer and Louisa Mancey (1 match, 21cM, 3x great grandparents)
William Stringer and Jane Brain (6 matches 111cM, 91cM, 39cM, 30cM, 28cM, 23cM 2x great grandparents)
Maternal grandmother's side:
Henry Elford and Thomazin Carton (1 match 32cM, 6X great grandparents)
Richard Wheadon and Mary Haynes (42 matches 41cM, 32cM, 31cM, 31cM, 31cM, 30cM, 29cM, 28cM, 28cM, 28cM, 26cM, 25cM, 24cM, 20cM, 17cM, 17cM, 16cM, 16cM, 16cM, 15cM, 15cM, 14cM, 13cM, 13cM, 13cM, 13cM, 11cM, 11cM, 11cM, 10cM, 10cM, 10cM, 10cM, 10cM, 10cM, 9cM, 9cM, 9cM, 9cM, 9cM, 9cM, 8cM, 4x great grandparent). This couple has a lot of descendants because some of their grandchildren became Latter Day Saints and had big families.
Jacob Dunford and Sarah Purchase (1 match, 14cM, 3x great grandparents)
John Boon and Eliza Elford (4 matches, 18cM, 14cM, 14cM, 9cM, 3x great grandparents)
William Elford Boon and Elizabeth Honeybun (3 matches 34cM, 21cM, 11cM, 2x great grandparents)
John Boon and Lucy Summers (3 matches 407cM, 289cM, 238cM, great grandparents)
[Removed match: Charles Summers and Mary Anne Dunford (1 match, 156cM 2x great grandparents). Author recently changed his tree but since the link is so strong I think he made a mistake.]
