The surnames in this DNA Project are researched as part of the Carrow one-name study. You can learn more about this significant research, and the associated family trees, by visiting the one-name study web site, or contacting the Project Administrator.
The researchers who began this study ten years ago tried to determine the genetic relationship between all Carrow, Carew,Carrons and other variant surnames worldwide
These few Carrow, Carew and Carron/Carron researchers began this group to prove/disprove relatedness between early immigrants to the Delmarva ( Delaware,Maryland and Virginia) and North Carolina in the 1600s
We seem to have begun to disprove a single surname premise as being unfounded, at least between Carew Carrow and Caroon. Older research often declares Carew and Carrow as having different origins if not ethnicity. With limited testers we see that is perhaps a valid premise.
Origins of most of these settlers were not stated in records although circumstances point to England with Scotland and Ireland possible
We are seeking our origins both genetically and geographically with Y DNA as well as autosomal tests
