About us

The Henstridge DNA Project welcomes all participants. We encourage you to join today!.

Our project is just getting started, and we expect to have many exciting discoveries. There are several lines of the Henstridge surname all deriving from either London or Wiltshire/Hampshire areas. Testing living descendants of these lines will reveal whether they are in fact descended from a common ancestor.
There are several spelling variations which may very well be related: Henstredge; Hemstridge; Hinstridge; Hemstritch; Hemestretch; In fact, several of these can be traced back to a  Henstridge spelling in the not too distant past.

Participating is an opportunity to uncover information not provided in the paper records, which will help with your research of your family tree. We will also discover which family trees are related. As the project progresses, the results for the various family trees will provide information on the evolution of the surname.

The surnames in this DNA Project are researched as part of the Henstridge one-name study. You can learn more about this significant research, and the the associated family trees, by contacting the Group Administrator.

The Y DNA test tells you about your direct male line, which would be your father, his father, and back in time. You must be male to take this test, and you should have one of the surnames shown. If you believe there is a Henstridge or variant in your direct male line, although you have a different surname, you are also welcome to participate. If you are female, you will need to find a direct line male in your family tree to participate and represent your tree.

We encourage males who order a Y DNA test to order 37 markers, if possible. If you order less markers, you can upgrade later, though this costs a little more.
