This is my 999th post. 

 I would like for anyone who ever Chance's this way to learn about Richards writings, i do not know Richard but at the beginning of these posts Richard just popped up and helped me, he wrote about a small part of the history of the Boswells and other Gipsy's if you read through the posts at the beginning of this thread you will read several from Richard, I looked at how he searched the National Newspaper Archives and found amazing story's, so i copied him and self learned to search myself. Richard i would say searchers for honest truth for all truth is seldom honest yet to search through honest eyes is a feat seldom reached i am sure he is always updating his findings and correcting at length through newer works yet to be published. So this my 999th post is wrote here for Richard to highlight his writing's and ongoing studies.

"The Y haplo tests are much more reliable than the 'ethnicity' or 'MTdna tests', which are just too vague or unreliable"

I tend to agree with you on the ethnicity tests in general Sally, though I tested with LivingDNA, and it was about 85% acccurate compared to my paper research. It was very accurate with English counties, but not so great identifying regions outside those (Ireland, Scotland, France etc) so I think the companies are slowly getting better in that respect, as more people test, and their databases expand.

That said I would not agree with that analysis of mtDNA. mtDNA is not vague or unreliable, it gives very precise and accurate ancestry results:

"mtDNA is passed down exclusively from your mother. Because mtDNA does not include a combination of DNA from both parents, it does not change with every generation.In fact, mtDNA changes extremely slowly – it might remain exactly the same for dozens of generations!
mtDNA testing ignores the main DNA in a cell, and looks just at the DNA of the mitochondria instead. Among other things, that means the test only has to examine about 16,500 genetic base pairs, instead of the 3.2 billion base pairs found in our DNA."

In tracing links to ancient populations, it is of far more value than Y Haplogroups,  because mtDNA is present in higher numbers than nuclear DNA, and it is more likely to survive intact in ancient remains.

Despite the very ancient results it typically gives, in terms of Romany people in Europe, or Romany descended people, it is still of clear use and interest, as there are a few haplogroups, including my own, which are almost exclusively seen in the Romany population, but otherwise virtually absent in the wider general European population. In my own case it was crucial in backing up the paper evidence and family lore, and is much more reliable as evidence than trace South Asian autosomal ethnicity results, which as you rightly point out may not always be very reliable and are frequently seen in many tested people.

There are some examples of Romanies noted as 'Black men' or 'Negroes' in relation to prominent UK Romany families, Hearns, Lovells, etc, in my book 'The Early Romany Boswells: A Family History 1650-1810 Part 2', which was published by the Romany and Traveller Family History Society, in February this year, and is still available:

There are also several further examples I have identified in relationship to the Romany Smiths, which I will be publishing in my forthcoming work on that family, available January next year. Thanks for the interest Sally.

Hi Don
   Like i told you i will write down all the Lock Locke names that are contained within all my D.N.A.
 cousin match's trees, i will only be able to show you what they show me, if you are interested i will give them your contact details, what you ask of them will be up to you so if anything i write rings a bell just say which D.N.A match is of interest you never know something may lead you back to Richard, i will only put a few names on that i think may help you to form a bigger picture there will be no need for you to answer any of these posts when i am done i will just leave things there and no doubt we will not speak again, good luck with your research, if by chance you are not interested in such things just say nothing, i am sure that these writings of mine will be of help to others. I will be leaving the country for a few weeks soon, i will continue posting on my return i will say at the end when i am finished.

This below will be D.N.A. match no. 3. from England. no. 1. will be on the previous post about H. Smith the male from the Gloucestershire lot. no. 2 will be the three Locks descended from Zacharia Lock from Wales who died in America but comes out of Henry Lock stated as being from England.

D.N.A. match no. 3. Female Born and bred a Davies from both sides a very impressive family tree we share 41 D.N.A. matches all Gipsy descendants including Davies and Smiths below names of interest that may be of interest.

George Davis 1755–Thomas Smith 1727–1838 Mary m Lock / Locke 1685–1745 Sarah Hannah Taylor Smith 1729–1834 Jeremiah / Jerry Davis 1804–1863 Aaron Smith 1788–1859 James Smith 1813–1876 Edmond V. Lock 1653–1728 Elizabeth Lock 1754–1797 George Lock / Locke 1754–1814

And look at these two i have been researching the Smiths and camping grounds in my own place of Nottingham then would you believe it these two just come along who are in my D.N.A. cousin match's family tree, and Bullwell is right next to Hucknall where the Derbyshire Boswells stayed Linda's lot. The Smiths i am sure are woven into my Mothers D.N.A. going back to times unknown, the bigger picture is there for all, maybe its not even hidden just like Dan Boswells old gravestone its right under your feet said the old Church helper who showed me the spot where he buried the remaining fragment that was left from the stone first erected many years before, then through me reading vast amounts of what could be said of as endless boring information i found that in 1963-64 the Church burial ground was littered with old broken gravestones so the people of this time connected to the Church used the old toppled gravestones to form walkways around the Churchyard, so Dan Boswell the Gipsy of long years still has all his gravestone in the the Church ground and both bits are under your feet, one day someone may dig up a path and find the true Epitaph when they combine the broken gravestones from the walkway and the buried one that lays buried just Infront of the the new erected stone from the 70s, also the Church helper told me the new gravestone is facing the wrong way, Dan was actually buried facing the Church if you stand a stride infront of the new stone turn to your left and there lays the Gipsy, Daniel Boswell. I found all this out by chance and by just digging away at chances that came my way, i was very lucky indeed the day i chanced by Selston, Dan was there to when i first approached his tomb i stopped in my track's i could feel him in a seeing way he told he was waiting sad to touched with anger within the moment he was gone he never came back, that's just the way of it. 

 John Smith 1723–1785 Thomas Smith 1686–1759 bullwell Nottingham.

All the information that i am writing about is information that i come across what is correct or
totally wrong or even something between is something that only time will reveal.

Hi Don
   I have many D.N.A matches to the Gloucestershire way you know the Smiths Stevens Davies they are linked with the Locke's Locks, I am just looking though for anything that may trigger an hidden meaning, one of the male Smiths who i cousin D.N.A match to and goes by the name of H. Smith shares 74 D.N.A. matches with me who are all from people with known Gipsy ancestry me and this Smith male both match to people from America. On Ancestry D.N.A it is stated that they come down a line of locks, the locks start of in Wales at the turn of the 1800s and end up in California.

These are the locks

William Edward Lock 1931–1974 Eben Loyd Lock 1894–1948 Ebenezer (Eben-Edward) Lock 1850–1935 Zacharia Lock 1827–1887

I read this piece below on-line -Born in Wales on abt 1827 to Henry Lock and Elizabeth F Lock. Zacharia Lock married Elizabeth O'Connor and had 3 children. He passed away on 25 Sep 1887 in Oakland, Alameda, California, USA.
I am through D.N.A related to three people from America who come down through this line of Locks both on the male line and the female line plus the Indian ethnicity still is showing up in two of the them through their own personal D.N.A, true they may have got there Gipsy D.N.A from someone else in Wales like a Lee from the 1700s or evan someone from America, i am just trying to find clues, this is the important bit they all share D.N.A with me and many other people with Gipsy ancestry there is not one link between us that contains a person who is not in a D.N.A Gipsy cluster and of great value is the fact that through D.N.A they relink to each other this I think isolates by a good percent the Lock name as the binding reason for the reason of their D.N.A  cluster link combining this with their D.N.A linking with the Gloucestershire Smiths as noted above i think they are worth looking into, i just think of your original question about Richard so i look for anything that may contain clues I have been reading the older posts on roots chat and I see you and Vince are well acquainted, these below are a few of the names in the male Smith mans line who I started this post with, he links to me and the American Locks he links twice and I three times this will only be through our own personal D.N.A

 Abraham (Bummie) Smith 1876–Aaron Smith 1788–1859 Merrick Lock 1782–1861 James Smith 1813–1876 Sarah Locke 1811–1888 Abraham Mustoe 1809–1869 Jane Mustoe 1840–Thomas Mustoe 1779–1847 Eleanor Stevens 1817–1891 Robert Stevens 1783–1849 Absalom Smith 1768–1826 Archeleus Smith 1829–Arthur Smith 1777–1822 Cinderella Smith 1845–Elizabeth Smith1735–Elsie Smith Gilroy (Sonner) Smith 1900–1995 Henry Smith 1943–Isabella Smith 1874–1966 Lavinia T Smith 1795–Louisa Smith 1808–1872 Mark Smith 1800–1869 Neptune Smith 1775–1855 Sampson Smith 1841–
 these are the posts on roots chat that made me know not to write up everything, i wonder what Vince would think of my many D.N.A matches. 

Travelling People / Re: Stevens - Loveridge
on: Monday 02 April 12 
 My x2 Grt Grandad, was Guilroy Smith, brother of the preacher Reuben Smith.  Guilroy was married to Eve Stevens, who was in turn the daughter of Manny Stevens and Eve Lock.
The Stevens, Locks and Smiths married into each other a lot, often first cousins, and usually several siblings from one family would marry several siblings from another family.
all that I have learned.....Romany Jib team, Don Lock and Eric Trudgill.

Thanks to Eric trudgill's piece on Merrick Lock, ( our ancestor), I know now that Annie Davies, was infact Sarah Anne Davies, and that Natty and guilroy were brothers.
the Smiths, Davies and Locks, appear to have been so intermarried, that anyone researching these clans in Glos. would need to consider that the names can end up being interchangeable.

on the Traveller board, you'll see contact info for Don Lock.  If not I'll pm his contact.

Travelling People / Re: Gyspy Surname
on: Saturday 26 September 09

I did a test with don Lock's project and one of the great surprises is the amount of people who carry the Gypsy gene and don't know it.  It is rarer on the female side (up to yet) because gypsy men have always married out.  I was somewhat surprised to find that my smith line went back to India.  Had I done the female line,
I now get e-mails from people all over the world desperate for an explanation as to why they have an Indian root when they only have European ancestry in living memory.  Just shows how many got deported.

Don i will go back through all my D.N.A matches and find all the old Lock Locke names within them and just write the names and dates down here, if then you would like me to write to any of them i will email them with your contact details. 

Also i just found this....Memberency Rememberence Boswell 1779–1869 she is an ancestor of another one of my D.N.A cousin matches with Matthew Locke 1785–1871 and Devit Margaret Boswell Smith 1753–1841 Horsforth, St Margaret, Yorkshire in the same tree but guess what, this cousin match is also matched along with me to the descendant's of Zacharia Lock 1827–1887. We all link up through the cousin sequence in another cluster.

 Hi Don

I will write up tomorrow a few more things that i have found. 

Travelling People / Re: Gipsy Dan Boswell
« on: Saturday 19 November 22 18:26 GMT (UK)  »

 It just happened again, Ancestry sent me a new cousin with the name in the link below, i know it's not the person in the link for he as passed away R.I.P. my DNA match as the same full name though bar the Jos, i wonder if he is related to the Man in the link, i searched the name out on-line. My DNA match has the Indian ethnicity yet no British or Western European DNA, i have seen in family's Violin players from Europe who are Gipsy's yet i share far DNA with their families, in Wales i have shared DNA with a Male known as Wood-Davies that had relatives who played the Harp plus i have DNA matches to the Evans who have the Roberts in their line i think they played the Harp to, such things i find interesting. this is the link to a Gipsy man who as the same name as my new DNA match they may be related. this is one of his songs, he has gone to the world now but i put up his song out of respect for him, they say he is from the Gipsy's, well my match as the same name as him and the Indian DNA, i am just respecting all Gipsy peoples with this link whether i am right or wrong, but they would know that anyway.... Leahcim.

These below are some of my DNA Cousins who also along with me match to the name in the link above the name in this link may not be the person who matches to me it's just it's the same name so i put it on just in case it's a related name, all these below have the Indian ethnicity to some degree they are in the 4th to 6th Cousin range the DNA match above as in name goes up to the 8th Cousin range, there will be more Cousin matches that link up at the 6th to 8th range but Ancestry only show shared linking Cousins up till the 6th range.
Stanley.... Male, this Stanley only gives his Indian ethnicity and fine land bridge away and matches to 105 people who share DNA with the both of us, all of them have a percentage of Gipsy ancestry in their history plus a high amount of them have the Indian ethnicity in their DNA  plus the connecting lands that the Gipsy's travelled through in the timescale that the scholars have wrote of, all these peoples form into clusters that then interlink with my other DNA matches who like them share the same kind of DNA that i have just wrote of above, you will see how some of them link more often through shared DNA with many clusters, there must be more to because i only keep a record of the DNA matches that link up in clusters.
Byrne…. from Coseley, Staffordshire, England, this is yours and Vince's lot, massive amount of the Davies that connect to your lot the Locke's and Smiths, both the Locke's and Smith go back to the 1600s in this lady's records.
A.L... 104 shared Gipsy DNA matches with me Managed by Anderson, when i say Gipsy i mean people with known Gipsy's in their family tree some or most will now be out of their Gipsy family and through reading what some say or who they focus on in photos well i think some do not have much of a understanding about their Gipsy ancestry yet they still carry the DNA. In their paper trail through the census reports that forms their family tree you see how they come out of the Gipsy's of old, others it is plain to see know and are very proud of who they descend from.
Anderson…  this one and the one above gives nothing away but share 84 DNA matches with me.
Pearce... American with Stanley Lee all in the close history, massive Gipsy ancestry ...that then goes back to Gipsy's like Edward Boswell 1776–1851 in his amazing family tree it's like reading the history of the history of the British Gipsie's that went from these lands to America. R.I.P.
Jeffery....  Female gives nothing away but is in a cluster of 79 other people with Gipsy ancestry.
George....  Male from Atlanta, Fulton, Georgia, USA from the Stanley Smalls Harrisons with names that go back to James (**) Small (c1736) R.I.P.
Pearce.... Male, American. Coopers Lee Jeffery's Fisher... going back to Magnolia Palmer, Maranda Lock 1848–Robert Lock 1814– Myrtle Smith Lee, 1900–Woodvine Smith, Shadrack Boswell
1735– Mathias Cooper1849–and many more of high regard. R.I.P

Lee... Female from the Wales lot the Lees and Jones....Freddy Lee 1911– R.I.P.

Lee. Female born and bred from the Wales lot, Elizabeth Lee 1905–1990 Harold Lee 1946–2009 Henry Lee 1904–1984 Molly Lee 1943–2010 Silas Toby Lee 1914–1973 samson Lee 1919–1998 Agnes Mochan 1919–1996 Eva Hearne 1921–2004 Geraldina Price 1942–2012 Charles Henry price 1910– Elizabeth Ann Edwards 1911. R.I.P.

Sammy... Female. American, directly out of the Smith Cooper then Joles plus Florence (Fince )
Harrison 1882–1976. R.I.P.
Phillips... Female. she shares with me over 120 Gipsy matches but gives nothing away.
J.B. Managed by worden Wharton's American.
Buckley.. comes out of John Buckley 1945–2001 Biggleswade, Bedfordshire, England. R.I.P.

There are several more DNA Cousin matches but they do not give much away.

Don i am looking into the connections with Vince's lot, you already know everything no doubt but i am trying to find things, no need to answer this post i will get back to you soon.

Hi Don
         Great post that, brilliant, i took a lot away from it, my Son sent me the My Heritage DNA pack for a birthday or something, i never really got on with it, i got the Ancestry one from my Daughter i think for a similar reason the Ancestry one i find is amazing, it's so easy to navigate i am not bringing the Heritage one down its just i got the Ancestry package first and took to that, i do find the idea of having the Family Tree DNA pack a good thought, i would really like to do that i will see if i can do it, if not i will just pay for another test. 

That was another good informative post you just wrote i do find your writings interesting and of knowledge that helps rather than confuse, i really do understand what you are saying about being related to someone by genetic kinship, i know a cousin is a cousin is a cousin but that will at most parts be as much sideways as backways, you by looking at the Haplogroup are seeking that straight line, i find that way of researching very true and a honest endeavor you must keep going and learn more discoveries, i try and think though that in life we have all in some way have been imprinted on, we only know and understand the universe from the teachings that have been relayed to us, why is one and then two that then goes on to become three, why do we think that statement is right, why do we think a straight line is the line of truth in who we are or come from, if you go back to the Indian lands in say the year 1100 and meet the Ancestor with the Haplogroup sure wouldn't he have just been a person of mixed DNA i try hard to think of the truth and i think we in life are brainwashed at times in everything by governments and organizations that just want us to think a certain way, how do we know really where life comes from, i know we are supposed to come from cells that evolved out of the dying of stars you know the table of elements basically remnant dust particles that formed into planets over millions of years then water being the holder of life formed cells in a primitive way, down the line animals came and we as several types of humans had our family tree back to the ape like peoples, but when did the Haplogroups start, surely it did not start in India, i am sure everyone on the planet today is only here because of shared DNA i think the scientists will find that a person can trace their lineage back in several ways not just a straight line, i know that may sound strange but i think more will come as truths in the future, i do believe as the Haplogroups as real and true and by researching that avenue what you seek you will find, well Done Don i think you have worked extremely hard.

I think you may be related to the Smiths from the Gloucester way i have been looking at all my DNA cousins who have Locke's in their tree and Vince who said he had your kind of Haplogroup comes out of them Smith Locke's to round that way, i listened to him years ago talking about certain family's, he had a massive Romany Gipsy heritage, you mentioned about the Locke's and Boswells some old names of the past well i see the connections in my DNA cousins writings on Ancestry, they have names like Davies Stevenson Smith and married out names but you see how the Locke's are there in the same family line as the Smiths, i will see what i find and get back to you.

    Don, it just happened again, Ancestry have just sent me the information of a new cousin, i have many East European Gipses in my family of DNA, now another cousin in DNA matches to me, and he has the DNA of the cold lands plus the Indian ethnicity, this time some big names from the British and American Gipses of old join this cluster, often only a few connect up to the people with European-Indian DNA ancestry, some of whom state openly their Gipsy status some give nothing away yet let you see their ethnicity.
These below are my DNA cousins who match along with me to A123. they all have the Indian ethnicity in their own DNA. in a range of 1% to 16% with many showing all the connecting countries plus some with the South Asian Iran Persia trace DNA, they are a mix of Americans and British nationalities and have very illustrious family trees.  All in the 4th – 6th Cousin range, A123. is in the 5th – 8th Cousin range.

J.S. comes out of Nalor Lovells lot. 
S.S. managed by the Buckland's below 
Lee a complete ethnicity land bridge from India to England
J.B. Managed by Worden-Wharton
and several more cousins of high regard.
Ethnicity Estimates


Ireland 0%
England & Northwestern Europe 0%
Scotland 0%
Wales 0%
Northern India 30%
Norway 29%
Aegean Islands 8%
Finland 6%
Germanic Europe 5%
Sweden & Denmark 5%
Cyprus 4%
Eastern Europe & Russia 3%

 Wow if this carries on old George Borrow will be coming to see me with some tobacco to get me talking, mind you i do not smoke but if he brings some stella i will sing like a song thrush, i better tell the wife to look out for Ian Hancock sure they will all want to know me now    ???

I understand that Don,

 Thank you for taking the time to put that together, it must of been many years of research, i totally get it what you are saying, Ancestry keeps updating my DNA they to try and write in a way that makes you read and take in the knowledge that their scientists in genealogy have come to learn, they tell of how we are 50% DNA from your Father and 50% from your Mother in past down DNA they try hard to tell you why some people have difference's in their results, one brother could show south Asian DNA ethnicity while another brother does not, this is because the 50% that they each got from say their Romany mother contained different parts of her 100% that she inherited from her parents, ancestry say in DNA you can only be 50% of each parent yet your 50%  from your father could be from a different grandparent, than what your brother inherited, this makes sense also, if you think about it if you only get 50% DNA from both of your parents there is 100% of DNA missing i think shared DNA being passed down changers because nature deems it that way for reasons of survival, you are who you are from say several generations back then as other relatives join you become a part of their DNA, this is who you are in today's world you can never carry all the DNA of all the many thousands of ancestor because you would have seven heads and three legs, the Haplogroup  will never change and it will tell you where your far ancestor came from but who you are in this day is the shared DNA from your last maybe four generations or so, like you say through shared DNA you will miss the 50% that was never passed down yet your Haplogroup groupings will still stay the same then like you have just wrote you will see a far cousin with a name like Locke because you share the same unchanged Y H, it's great to learn things Don, thank you again, you may not like the thought Don but you are famous, and you may not write books or be wanted to be known, but again you will be wrote of in books, well done.

  Don you have helped me understand what Ancestry have been saying when they put up more search results i am sure there is more to learn.

Hi Don

          I used to listen to Vince and Linda plus the Burton man talking about the subject of the Y DNA, in fact lots of people used to talk about it, i remember one fellow who knew so much about the history of the Gipsy's, he had knowledge of the old language in a great way, he learned of all his family history in a modern sense but then the DNA just hit the town running and was a revelation to everyone, this fellow had the test thinking he had the unbroken male line but the result came out different, i never once over the years ever have known of him talking on-line again, i felt sorry for him if he thought bad of his situation, there can be no doubt that all the evidence is true that a male line if left untouched unbroken is a true line of descent in the biological history of a male person, so if the oldest member of that family line in relatively modern history as a male was from the people known as the Romany in today's talk then the evidence is easy to understand, thank you for explaining to everyone, there may be people who read these words for the first time.

Don i am just trying to find clues in peoples shared DNA, i understand it is not the Y H DNA i am sure there are many clues out there, as you know there will be far more people without the Y H DNA than with it, yet those people will still connect, i am looking for clues through peoples family trees with or without the Y H DNA, i know a male line of Romany Locke's must all share the same Y Haplogroup H-M82. i have always known that for several years now Vince was very proud to learn of this as was the others they were very proud to know that they are from the oldest of the Romany in a direct line right back to the lands known in this time as India, and they should be proud to, if i had the Y DNA of the Romany Gipsy's i would also be proud, i hope i may be of help to you and will try my best.
