While Clan Pringle is documented as a Lowlands Scot clan[1], the Pringle men (the specific focus being on three kits (two Big Y-70, and one Y-67, as of Dec 2022) who have tested and match several men under BY3368, appear to be a NPE line (non-paternal events/NPE is a term used in genetic genealogy to describe any event which has caused a break in the link between an hereditary surname and the Y-chromosome resulting in a son using a different surname from that of his biological father.). Additionally, Y DNA results within the Pringle Y DNA page[2] make clear there is more than one line of Pringle men with lines tracing to Scotland. In this particular instance, the Pringle men are traceable to County Monaghan, County Tyrone, and County Armagh, in the early 17th century. These test takers are categorized "Hap'group R1b - Family B" in the Pringle Y DNA chart.

For more regarding the Pringle lines of interest, see John Pringle, born ca. 1660 and Alexander Pringle, b. ca. 1620.

Fixed. Once again it appears to be an issue with the backslash incorporated into the link.
