Some Butterfield Y haplo DNA results from two different projects. Not sure what it all means, but might be some help along the way.

Butterfield DNA Project
https://www.worldfamilies.net/surnames/butterfield/results

and

University of Leicester
'We analysed the Y chromosomes of 1678 men carrying 40 British surnames...'

Thank you Sally for pointing this out - it looks such an interesting study. I wrote to them to ask for more details, as I have the DNA results from my Butterfield line, and permission to use them, but the mail bounced back - 'Email address not recognised.' Pity.

Hi Sally, sorry Iíve  been so long getting back to you. Iíve heard from the lady who ran the study but the DNA didnít match any tested. Iíve now ordered a test from Ancestry for my brother and myself so letís see if we can get any further,

Thanks for getting back. That's interesting Sherry.
Am I right in thinking this might be connected to all the illegitimacy in the records? What do you think?

Could be. Fingers crossed! There is some useful info about using DNA to knock down brick walls on Peter Calverís (free) lost cousin website:
