Would a SNP test to identify subgroup help determine if no matching surname is due to convergence?

This is me (Johnny High) with my mother Dasha (Dana) Timoshenko High. I believe it to be a passport picture taken in either Oct or Nov 1948.

“Hi. I recently had my brother’s y-37 results. No Robinson surname in the match list except at 12 markers and that person has zero information provided. Any advice on what now? His Haplogroup is R-M269. I’ve looked at the y-str results but don’t know how to interpret them. Can I learn about about subclades from these? I can’t find any advice in the Learning Centre that takes me any further. A banner pops up suggesting upgrading to y-67. But I don’t want to do that that until I can understand what I’ve got so far, which appears to me to be nothing much. So I predicted the Haplogroup based on our paper research. It’s the most common for for Western Europe. What else should I be able to deduce from these results? Apologies if this is the wrong question in the wrong place. I’ve read everything I can find and am no wiser!”

H, I hope it's OK for to have joined this group? I am managing the Y-DNA test for my brother Jeremy Robinson. I am Jane Lucas (born Robinson.) We were born in south west Lancashire. I have traced my father's Robinson surname back to a burial in 1750. All bmds are in the sale small Parish. I have been unable to determine with certainty the birth place or parents of that 1750 burial. However, on the maternal side there I have documented the line back to c1530 where the surnames for that family are all patronymic. I have been working on that theory as well as trying to trace Robinson. For example we have John son of Robt. Robtson baptised 1618. Ellin Robertson bap. 1677 dau. Robert Johnson. There are other Robinsons in the same Parish.

Kevin Robinson matches 2 persons at 111 markers; both surnamed Cash, both with Earliest Known Ancestor William Cash born about 1653 died about 1707 America ) QUESTIONs ???
1) Is the surname Robinson more English in style, than Scots ?
2) Does surname Robinson imply a Son of Robin ? If so; Where is Robin ???
THEORY; please challenge our thinking,,,
3) is it possible that the Robinson family split from the Cash family about 1600. (more likely to us, than the Cash (Caigh ?) splitting from a Robinson line, based upon assumptions of Scots/Irish origin, & the more gutteral tones possible with the name Cash.
4) MIGHT there be a Robin Caish born late 1500's ???
Thanks, Kevin & sister Renee

“Any news on when the dna results are going to get updated? seems a very slow progress in this particular group compared to other groups”

I started my genealogy 25 years ago, and felt alone in doing it. All I could do was work the paper trail upwards, and sift through the massive surname data downwards. Then, FTDNA came along. I progressively tested up to BigY and saw the matches that clearly indicated a family migration from nearly a single parent. It even matched the "story" of the immigration compiled by someone in the late 19th century, although, I was unable to exactly match the related people into a tree since no one had definite data going back far enough. However, now, by combining the matches in FTDNA with the clustering tool on http://scaledinnovation.com/gg/gg.html?nm=tools, I was able to build a rough tree that approximates the relationships of all my matches in the project table. I think it's accurate +- 3 generations. Very excited and can't wait to research ancestry for matching trees to fill in the blanks!
