BARRON PROJECT Y-DNA CLANS

Within the Barron Y-DNA Project, there are currently 167 individuals who have done Y-DNA testing at 37 markers or higher.  Of these, 141 have been grouped into 11 distinct, unrelated Clans, and 25 Individuals are so far "Unassigned".  Below you can see details for each clan and its members, and for unassigned members. Interestingly, a majority of the unassigned participants and all but one of the Clans descend from Haplogroup R-M269. 


For a detailed chart presentation of all marker values for all participants below, click here.  For Barron DNA Project members, be sure to sign into your Family Tree DNA account to view all participants.  If you are not signed in, you will see only a partial listing.  While the determination of the exact value of each marker value is an advanced science, the statistical interpretation of the results is not.  We encourage any reader to contact the Project Co-administrators for assistance in evaluating individual relationships.  You'll find admin names and email contacts in the left-hand column of this page.

CLAN 1 (Haplogroup R-M269)

Other Known Surnames related to Clan 1 OR due to Non-Paternal Events (NPEs): Anderson, Sykes, Taylor, Gordon

Currently, Clan 1 has two known branches – an English and American. Both branches descend from an Unknown Most Recent Common Ancestor b. about 1520, most likely in England.  The English Y-DNA testers have their heritage in Cumberland and Durham Counties, England, as early as 1700. And Clan 1's American descendants most likely descend from a single immigrant, b. about 1620, either in England or the US (VA or MD) and who immigrated to St. Mary's County, Maryland before 1656.  While his name is not known, he had at least 3 sons who lived to adulthood, George, John, and Thomas.  Of these, Thomas, b, 1656 St. Mary’s County, MD, had 5 known children that lived to adulthood, it is his son Thomas Jr, b. ca 1704, St. Mary’s County, MD, from which the current American Y-DNA testers all appear to descend. Descendants of the American branch spread throughout the US South and Mid-Atlantic, with some lines moving to the Midwest. 

Jon Andersen’s work with refined Y testing of over 12 Clan 1 members (Family Tree DNA Y700 and Dante 30x tests), support the above deductions (see analysis).

CLAN 2 (Haplogroup R-M269)

Other Known Surnames Related to Clan 2 OR due to Non-Paternal Events (NPEs): Fowler, Watson

While the Most Recent Common Ancestor of Barron Clan 2 is not known, he likely was an Ulster-Scot who lived in Northern Ireland in the 1600s. There are clan members living in Northern Ireland, Australia and the U.S. who trace their ancestral line to one Archibald Barron who signed a land lease in Lisnaward, County Down, Northern Ireland, in 1713. And many American clan members descend from William Barron Sr. (abt 1740 – abt 1780), or the family of Barrons that settled in what is now York County, SC, prior to the American Revolution. 

See a full analysis of Clan 2.  

See Vicki Barron Kruschwitz’s website by clicking here..

Four participants in this Clan matched exactly on 67 markers.  

-        Oran Barron of the line of William Barron of Georgia; 

-        Keith Barron descends from Archibald Barron of York County, SC; 

-        Michael David Barron, a descendant of William Barron of South Carolina and Tennessee, likely the line of Alexander Barron of York County, SC; and;

-        Daniel Barnes, whose earliest known ancestor, James Barnes, immigrated from Ireland in the 1880s. 

Other participants differed from this baseline by only one to three markers, indicating a very tight relationship in this Clan.

CLAN 3 (Haplogroup R-M269)

Clan 3’s Most Recent Common Ancestor may have been Joseph Barron, b. 1655 in Barbados, d. 1725 in Talbot County, MD. This line has been taken back several additional generations to Cambridge, England, with the earliest known ancestor identified as Richard Baron, b ca 1591. Currently, all members of Clan 3 who belong to the Barron DNA Project descend from an American branch of this family, which settled throughout the South.  View a discussion of Clan 3.  

Participant William Paul Barron, Jr. has the longest proven Barron lineage of any of the following participants.  One of the objectives of this DNA project was to prove the connection between William Paul Barron's ancestral line and those of the other participants, in order to validate the proposed relationship between an early American Barron, James Barron (b. 1752) and his "lost" son, Caleb Barron (b. 1797).


Click here for a discussion of Y-DNA evidence as it relates to our conclusions for Clan 3

Clan 9 and 10 have a documented Clan 3 ancestry thru the Caleb Barron (b. 1797) > Ezekiel b. 1838 > line - yet none of the individuals in Clan 9 and 10 match Clan 3 on Y-DNA. At several points, Non-Paternity Events (NPEs) occurred, so neither the Clan 9 or Clan 10 Barron lines carry the Barron Clan 3 Y-chromosome, nor does either carry the Y-chromosome of the other (Clan 9 does not carry the Y-chromosome of Clan 10 and vice-versa). An NPE could be an adopted/orphaned son who took the Barron surname from a guardian or stepfather, or an illegitimate son.

Other Known Surnames related to Clan 4 OR due to Non-Paternal Events (NPEs): Patrick, Howell

The Most Recent Common Ancestor for Clan 4 is unknown but must have lived in England.  One branch of Clan 4 remained in England. One or more branches immigrated to America, with a group of this clan found in the Edgecombe County, NC, area by the mid-1700s, with some families spreading south to Jackson and Elbert Counties, GA, and probably another group in Washington County, GA, by the late 1700s. Current Clan 4 members of the Barron DNA Project reside in England and the U.S.

CLAN 5 (Haplogroup R-M269)

Other Known Surnames related to Clan 5 OR due to Non-Paternal Events (NPEs):  Parker and Braswell/Brazell/ Bracewell

Clan 5 was initially formed from descendants of Samuel Barron (1780-1861), but Y-DNA matches show that an earlier ancestor of this clan was a Braswell male.  Clan 5 Barrons also match a few Parkers, Carvers, Clarks and Sumners, indicating Non-Paternity Events on all these lines that connect their Y chromosomes to a common Braswell ancestor, possibly sometime in the 1700s or a bit earlier.

For Clan 5’s Barron members– their Most Recent Common Ancestor (MRCA) as well as their Earliest Known Ancestor – was Samuel Barron, b. abt 1780 in Maryland, lived in Wilkes/Hancock/Warren/Upson Counties, Georgia, d. abt 1861 in Barbour County, Alabama.  All members of this clan show close Y-DNA matches to a Braswell family, with earliest known ancestor Robert Bracewell (Braswell), b. 1611, England, d. 1668, Virginia. It appears that the Clan 5 Barrons carry this Braswell Y chromosome, shared by the Parker member, and Braswell/Brazell members.  There may have been a Non-Paternity Event (NPE) with Samuel Barron, or a generation or two prior, where a Braswell male fathered this line (with a similar event occurring in the Parker line of this clan). An NPE could be an adopted son who took the Barron surname or illegitimate son

Other Known Surnames related to Clan 7 OR due to Non-Paternal Events (NPEs):  Pembroke

Clan 7 is a very loosely-related clan, with some members more closely tied to a Pembroke family than to the clan’s other Barron members.  The clan’s Most Recent Common Ancestor may have lived in the area near County Kilkenny, Ireland, possibly in the 1600s, or earlier. Several of the branches of this clan immigrated to Newfoundland, Canada.  Clan members who Y-DNA tested are from Canada and the U.S.

CLAN 8 - (Haplogroup R-M269)

Another loosely-related clan, the Most Recent Common Ancestor for Clan 8 may have lived in the 1600s in County Waterford, Ireland.  The clan members who Y-DNA tested assumed that they would descend from the Barrons of Burnchurch, a well-known Waterford Barron family with ancient origins. But Y-DNA testing has not supported that connection, showing that this Barron line did not match the DNA of a known descendant of the Barrons of Burnchurch. Clan members who Y-DNA tested live in Ireland and the U.S.

Clan9Anchor

CLAN 9 and 10:  Documented ancestry for Clan 9 and 10 indicate they should be a branch of Clan 3 yet none of the individuals in 9 and 10 who Y-DNA tested match Clan 3.  At some point, Non-Paternity Events (NPEs) occurred, so these Barron lines do not carry the Barron Clan 3 Y chromosome. An NPE could be a son that was adopted who took the Barron surname or an illegitimate son. So while both Clan 9 and 10 have documented ancestries, they do not align with the Y-DNA results.

 

CLAN 9 - (Haplogroup I-M223)

Clan 9 is a closely related group of individuals, whose documented ancestry shows a lineage of Caleb Barron b. 1797 > Ezekiel b. 1838 > Solomon b. 1861 > Chester b. 1890 > William Chester Barron b. 1926 and that this Barron line should be a branch of Clan 3 but does NOT match Clan 3 on Y-DNA. At some point, a Non-Paternity Event (NPE) occurred, so this Barron line does not carry the Barron Clan 3 Y-chromosome, nor does it carry the Y-chromosome of Barron Clan 10. An NPE could be an adopted son who took the Barron surname or illegitimate son.

(Note: Since Robert Brian Barron's test was undertaken through the Sorenson Foundation, not all markers match the FTDNA basis, so our comparison is limited to comparing 22 of 37 markers.  Robert matches Barron Clan 11 on 20 and 21 of the 22 markers, so it is possible that he belongs to that group, though no paper connection has been made.  Robert's Y-DNA results confirm that his Haplogroup is R1b, as expected for most individuals who have a Scotland lineage.)
