We now have FIFTY sets of yDNA results from Appleby descendants and 37 sets of Family Finder results from testers with APPLEBYs in their ancestry - visit our website to discover more! http://www.applebydna.org.uk/dna-test-results-to-date

I have just double checked these figures - and when results for testers who are not able to identify the specific APPLEBY line they belong to are taken into account, the figures jump to ..... 56 sets of yDNA results and 48 sets of Family Finder results!

I'd like to know what others think of the Briggs close match to the Roscommon Appleby lines. A maternal uncle (Richard) was tested - I am Dennis; the other Briggs match is a 4th cousin 1X removed. I wonder if it's as simple as an Appleby at some point taking the maternal name Briggs or vice versa. I have a known ancestor of my wife taking his mother's maiden name, which turned into a phonetic variation of it.

Hi Richard, I included your results on our results spreadsheet because it does look as if there is a definite connection between the two BRIGGS yDNA testers and a cluster of 12 APPLEBY testers, particularly as both BRIGGs testers share some unusual STR results as the other testers in the NORTHERN GROUP ONE cluster – see http://www.applebydna.org.uk/dna-test-results-to-date As you say, changes of name are fairly common – • perhaps because of an informal adoption, maybe because a mother died and a relative took her children into their family and brought them up as their own (including using their surname) • following a second marriage of the mother which resulted in a child whose biological father was an Appleby being renamed with his new step father’s surname. • Or it could be a case of illegitimacy (just as common back then as now), where an unmarried female with one or two children whose biological father was an APPLEBY married a BRIGGS and the children used the new husband’s surname. • The other common reason, often possible to spot if you look at the supposed mother’s age, but much more difficult to prove, is the very frequent situation where an older daughter in a family had a child (unacknowledged father’s surname APPLEBY) but her parents pretended the new baby was their own and he grew up with their surname. What is probably more important in such a situation is to look at the PLACES associated with your BRIGGS ancestors. Is there an overlap with either the Roscommon line or Kirkcaldy in Scotland (where we know some of the Roscommon Appleby moved to) or any of the haunts of the other Appleby lines in this cluster of results in Northumberland in the UK, New Brunswick in Canada, or Pennsylvania in the USA? In your case we know that your BRIGGS have an association with New Brunswick so the answer almost certainly lies there .. but finding any relevant paper records available to prove it may be a more difficult task  Do any other Group Members have views on Richard’s interesting question?

Would a particular SNP test do any good at this juncture?

in addition to 46 sets of yDNA results, we also have 29 Family Finder results from individuals with APPLEBYs in their ancestry!

If YOU have Appleby ancestry and you have taken a Family Finder test, you are welcome to join our project too. Just click on the JOIN button and complete the Join request form - make sure you mention how you are connected to the Applebys, and if you have already visited our website at www.applebyDNA.org.uk and know the name of the line you belong to, include that information too.

YDNA RESULTS UPDATED! . We have just received the yDNA results for a tester from an Oxfordshire line of Applebys. They are a fairly distant match to our Buckinghamshire Appleby line tester, so I have created a new Group : MIDLANDS GROUP 6. . This brings our total number of sets of yDNA results to 39 (37 members tested with ftDNA, two with Ancestry) – see our website for a full breakdown of the results to date http://www.applebydna.org.uk/dna-test-results-to-date/4537494062 . I will be adding a page on our website for the Oxfordshire line very soon. Sue

This week I have transferred our own website at http://www.applebydna.org.uk/ to an HTML format instead of the previous version which was powered by Flash, which means that you can now view the site on tablets and mobile devices. . If you spot any formatting errors or broken links, please let me know so I can correct them! Sue

Sue, Has anyone connected the Kit numbers 68079 and 265803? John and William were brothers, and their dates as posted are in the right time frame?

Hi Bob Kit 68079 (and 162251) belong to descendants of William of Philadelphia, and kit 265803 belongs to a descendant from John of Kelloe. However, these two lines fall into separate clusters of yDNA groups, and according to ftDNA’s TiP report there is only a 17% likelihood that they shared a common ancestor within the past 24 generations. So it is highly unlikely that John of Kelloe is related to William. . It is far more likely that William of Philadelphia is connected to the line of Applebys that lived in Acklington in Northumberland – the TiP report shows a 91% likelihood of these two lines sharing a common ancestor within the past 12 generations! . We have not yet found an unexplained William (with a brother John) who was born in around 1750 in the Acklington line, but that is where I would put my money on finding him!! . Beth has also come up with a possible connection between the Embleton line (which also belongs to the same cluster) and the Acklington line, which I hope to add to the charts on the website shortly. .

I am fairly certain that Thomas Appleby was born to John Appleby and Judith Watson out-of-wedlock per baptism records.

Also - all of Nick Appleby's posts will be by Bethany Appleby (wife). I just fill him in on what I learn from all of Sue's hard work!

The young man facing the side is Nick's grandfather, Mark Appleby (b. 1884 in Embleton, d. 1976).

Beth, You did not respond to my latest email to you. Have you gathered any information beyond 1770?
