Ancestral Family Tree DNA Testing / A DNA coincidence?
« on: Monday 25 January 21 21:40 GMT (UK)  »
The big list of DNA matches came through from FTDNA with over 2,000 matches of varying degrees. I had never yet had a match on my own surname until now. There was a lady who had a 61cm match with me. As a result I emailed a person who has my surname in the same area. Result she is the ex wife of his son. So the DNA link is either through my mother's side, or my father's maternal side. Quite coincidental I think.

Cambridgeshire / Marriage outside the permitted bounds Ayres-Ayres
« on: Sunday 08 November 20 19:01 GMT (UK)  »
At sometime in the late 18th century the oldest son of one of my Ayres ancestors married his aunt, who was the youngest daughter of her husband's grandfather. The marriage therefore would be Ayres to Ayres, but though I recall entering it some years ago, I am quite unable to find it. I am wondering if the cause is the susceptibilites of Legacy or an error by myself? Anyone help please.

The Common Room / John Luffman, Soldier and Weaver
« on: Tuesday 20 October 20 20:27 BST (UK)  »
My 2x great grandfather, John Luffman had a Military career from 1794 (Somerset Fencibles) to 1811 (Regiment of foot whhich became Lincolnshire Regt). His discharge document from Kilmainham hospital stated that he had previously been a weaver. This would be in Dorset, Somerset, or bizarrely Yorkshire. What records are there of 18th century weavers?

Australia / Male descendants of Joh Triton Luffman b India 1846
« on: Saturday 15 August 20 15:39 BST (UK)  »
Subsequentlly John migrated to Australia.
The following appear to have been his grandsons all b Wilcannia NSW

John David           Luffman b1912
Frank                   Luffman b1914
William Alexander Luffman b1914
Ronald Alan          Luffman b1917

There are apparently marriages for all except Frank.

My interest is if any of their descendants in the continuous male line have taken a Y chromosome DNA test as due to possible illegitimacy in the late 18th century I am uncertain of the identity of my 3x great grandfather.

Ancestral Family Tree DNA Testing / John Luffman c1776-1823
« on: Sunday 24 May 20 20:05 BST (UK)  »
In an attempt to establish who his father was and overcome a brickwall since 1996 I took a 37  Y DNA test with FTDNA in 2011.
The result one close match, different surname, traced him as descendant of illegitimate son of my grandfather's brother, but nothing else in 9 years. Where do I go next?

A regiment (possibly dragoons) recruited in the Sherborne area in late 1775 and was stationed at York the following year. Which was it please?
