Surnames/tags: Mattingly Matney
- The Mattingly-Matney Surname DNA Project protects the privacy of it's members. Names of living DNA donors and other living individuals are never disclosed. .
- When genetic DNA testing was showing significant promise for genealogists, some Mattingly genealogists expressed hopes that one day genetic DNA testing would be able to link the various family lines that descended from Thomas Mattingly I and his sons, Thomas II and Cezar. This project is a beginning. It is intended to be inclusive of all those males having derivatives of these surnames: Matingelege, Mattingley, Mattingly, Matney and others not yet identified by this project.
- In the book, The Mattingly Family in Early America (1975) Herman R. Mattingly documents on page 5 the origin of the Mattingly surname as being a derivative of a Saxon known as Matta who was chief of a Basingas tribe. Matta and his clan apparently landed on the southern coast of England around the 4th or 5th centuries, and later moved north into the Whiteriver Valley. Supposedly, these people became known by the name Matta-inge-leah, meaning People of Matta's Clearing. The surname latter evolved into forms of Matingelege, Mattingley, Mattingly, Matney and possibly others as well. The Basingas tribe name still survives today in the names of Old Basing and Basinstoke in Hampshire county, both located 22 kilometers west southwest of the current day Village of Mattingley.
- The earliest record of the name Matingelege is in the Domesday Book of 1086. The Domesday Book was a compiled census of all England properties as ordered by William the Conqueror after his conquest of the Saxony England.
- The Pipe Rolls of 1206 records the passing of property ownership to Stephen de Mattingley in 1206. These properties were later inherited by his son, Peter de Mattingley.
- The village of Matingley appears at the far upper right of a Map of Hampshire which was believed to be the first 1 inch to 1 mile survey made by Isaac Taylor in the 1750s, published in 1759.
- Although the manor and land holdings are no longer in the Mattingley family, the village of Mattingley exists today in Hampshire County as described on page 300 in the book, The Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales (1870) by Dr. John Marius Wilson.
- Connecting the Mattingley families of the United Kingdom to this project using the available DNA evidence would be an interesting study. If you are a Mattingley living in the United Kingdom this project would like to connect with you especially if you have had your Y-chromosome tested through BritainsDNA.
- The earliest known Mattingly family to arrive in America was that of Thomas Mattingly I (b. England; d. 24 Jul 1664, MD) who is believed to have emigrated from England around 1663 with wife Elizabeth (maiden name unknown), sons Thomas II (b. 1650, England; d: 12 Jan 1714, MD) and Cezar (b. 1654, England; d. 1719, MD), and daughters Judith (b. before 1650) and Elizabeth (b. 1655, England).
- The goal of the Mattingly-Matney DNA Surname Project has been to identify the haplogroup, haplotype and terminal SNPs for the descendants of Thomas Mattingly I and sons, Thomas II and Cezar.
- In 1990, the Human Genome Project launched a 13 year, publicly funded, international project to map the human genome. As a result of this research, the first Y-DNA Tree was published which identified eighteen major haplogroups or branches, identified by the alphabetic characters A through R. Since, the Y-tree has been extended to included haplogroups S and T. A Y-DNA haplogroup is a cluster of SNPs shared by a group of human males who all carry most of those mutations in their Y-DNA. A node or branch of the Y-DNA tree represents another cluster of males who descend from the previous haplogroup, carrying the same SNPs of the parent group, but share one or more SNPs not present in the ancestor. The Y-Tree therefore is a mapping of our males ancestors through time as determined and illustrated by the progression of the Y-DNA mutations. A branch in the Y-Tree is referred to as a sub-clad. When a specific population share the same characteristic SNPs it is referred to as a haplotype or sub-clad. As one progresses down the branches of the Y-DNA tree into SNPs that formed in more recent times, the SNPs can be used to identify lines of descent within families; and ideally, these branches should resemble the patriarchal lineages found in the family genealogies. Any specific SNP that is unique to a recent male relative (brother, son, uncle, father, grandfather, etc.), the last known mutation within a haplotype, is often referred to as the terminal SNP. When two or more males share a common SNP passed to them through a male ancestor they have in common, that ancestor is called the most recent common ancestor (MCRA).
- This project shows the pedigrees of the Mattingly-Matney DNA Surname Project members. The project relies on the members to help identify the patriarch lineages, some of which have vague connections in generations 2, 3 and 4. This project places the members under Thomas Mattingly II or his brother Cezar based on the genetic evidence. Hopefully this helps to resolve questions of placement of family lineages where uncertainty existed.
- The following links present views of the various patriarch trees and the unique Y-Chromosome SNPs found in the project participants. The Mattingly DNA Surname Project is a work in progress. The results on these page are updated as test results or more accurate lineage information becomes available.
- Results for the descendants of Thomas Mattingly II
- Results for the descendants of Cezar Mattingly
- Results for the descendants of Walter Mattingly/Matney Sr.
- Results for the descendants of Clement Allen (Mattingly) Matney
- Results for the descendants of William Henry Matney
- Results for the descendants of Brooks Matney
Other Genetic Connections
- Notice to Descendants of Thomas Mattingly II
- The Mattingly-Matney DNA Surname Project has few members representing the direct male descendants of Thomas Mattingly II and needs to expand our genetic knowledge of these lineages. The lineages currently represented in the project descend from [[Mattingly-60| Ignatius Mattingly Sr.]. The Project needs one descendant from William "Constable Billy" Mattingly, and two descendants from any son of Leonard "Old Leonard" Mattingly except Leonard Mattingly Jr.
- If you are a direct descendant of a son of Thomas Mattingly II and willing to provide a saliva DNA sample, this project may fund DNA testing provided your patriarch tree can be substantiated. Please contact the project administrator.
- Notice to Descendants of Brooks Matney
- The Mattingly-Matney DNA Surname Project needs to determine whether other lineages descending from Brooks Matney belong to haplogroup R1b-DF97*.
- Notice to Descendants of 19th or 20th Century Mattingly British Emigrants to the United States
- There were many Mattingly emigrants to the United States during the 19th and 20th centuries who indicate they were born in Great Britain. The Mattingly-Matney DNA Surname Project needs to study DNA samples of male descendants of these emigrants in order to determine if their DNA profile contains a match to the known SNPs in the Y14084 Group carried by Thomas Mattingly I who emigrated to the United States circa 1665.
- If you are a direct descendant of 19th and 20th century Mattingly emigrant to the United States who was born in Great Britain DNA and willing to provide a saliva DNA sample, this project may fund DNA testing provided your patriarch tree can be substantiated. Please contact the project administrator.
