BY111495 Families

Joseph Harshaw, 1705-?

Earliest Harshaw/Hershaw/Harsha/Harshew/Hareshaw Lines of SW Scotland

Upon reviewing the Scotland's People Site, the earliest record of a Harshaw in their database is the birth of a child to Archibald Harshaw and Elspet Wilsoun/Mesone, in 1629, in Glasgow. After this, the following couple are recorded through 1750:

  • Archibald Harshaw and ?, Lanark, 1666
  • John Harshaw and Jane Allan, Stonehouse, S. Lanarkshire, 1710
  • Alexander Hershaw and Janet Young, Glassford, S. Lanarkshire, 1711
  • Alexander Harshew and Janet Broun, Stonehouse, S. Lanarkshire, 1715
  • Alexander Harshaw and ?, Stonehouse, S. Lanarkshire, 1716

The surname also shares a name with Hareshaw, North Lanarkshire.

BY111495 Age Estimation

  • FTDNA estimates Haplogroup R-BY111495 emerged between 1434 CE and 1758 CE. Note that this is inconsistent with the first tier of the rest of the subclades under BY3374, and suggests this estimate by FTDNA is likely an error (which might also suggest the subclades of BY111495 are also incorrectly estimated). To be consistent with the seven other subclades, this haplogroup should have emerged much earlier.
