R-L21* 17-14-10 Group 1
These men have a repeat of 17 at marker 448;
a repeat of 14 at marker 456;
and a repeat of 10 at marker 450.
(also appears to have a values of 16 at 395S1a 22 at 413a and 13 at 617).
They are assumed to all be R-L21*, but not all of them have tested.
As of August 2011, five men have tested positive for SNP L371

R-L21* Cadwgon Group 2
From: JOHN PLUMMER (2010 edit by Susan Rosine)
Subject: [DNA] Welsh: 391=10, 385a=12,459a=10 etc: Cadwgon ap Elystan Glodrudd, born 1016
Date: 20 Oct 2007
There are seven examples on ysearch of a distinctive type of R1b1b2 which can be identified with Welsh tribal patriarch Cadwgon ap Elystan Glodrudd. The DNA has differences showing that two branches are represented, believed to belong to two sons of Cadwgon ap Elystan Glodrudd. The traditional birthdate of Cadwgon is 1016 which seems reasonable as his son Gronwy was living in 1101.
All seven in the first 12 marker FTDNA panel have two differences from the modal: DYS 391 of 10 and DYS 385a of 12.
In the second FTDNA panel (markers 13-25) all seven have DYS 459a of 10, and DYS 448 of 18. DYS 464 is 15-16-16-17.
There are two distinctive markers in the next FTDNA panel (markers 26-37) All of the six with 37 markers tested have a value of 10 for GATA H4; and 16 for DYS 607.
The Miles/Collins branch of this family shares a value of 24 for DYS 447 and 20 or 21 for DYS 576. It was the Miles data that enabled the identification with Cadwgon ap Elystan Glodrudd to be made. The Miles immigrant was a Welsh Quaker who went from Llanfanhangel Helygen, Radnorshire, Wales to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1684. This area in Wales between the Wye and the Severn was the tribal territory of the family of Elystan Glodrudd. Not only that, but the only Miles family in Volume 2 of The Development of Welsh Heraldry by Michael Powell Siddons was seated at Harpton, Old Radnor. There are only about 8 miles between Harpton and Llanfahangel Helygen where the immigrant Samuel Miles attended Quaker Monthly meeting. The Harpton Miles family descended from Hoedlyw, son of Cadwgon ap Elystan Glodrudd. Three of the seven of this family are Prices (one spelled Priest). If one checks the online surname profiler, the greatest concentration of Price is in Radnorshire. Checking Siddons, the Radnorshire Prices descend from Idnerth and Llewelyn, sons of Cadwgon ap Elystan Glodrudd. There is also a doubtful Price line from Hoedlyw. Hopefully still more of this prolific Welsh tribe will join the databases so we can make the identification rock solid and clarify the branchings. I might note that I have an every-generation-descent from Cadwgon ap Elystan Glodrudd, but not in the male line. Probably every-generation-male-line-descents exist, or can be developed.

R-L21* Combo Group 3
These men have a repeat of 11 at marker 406s1 and a repeat of 13 at marker 617. (also appear to have value of 15 at DYS 19)
The Combo Cluster has different sub-clusters, including the "Ros Mascy Superfamily Modal" (y-search Q69ZC) and the "Wales Modal 3," which was defined by Robert Hughes (y-search KEFGX). As of August 2011, three of these men have tested positive for SNP L513.

R-L21* Mixed Surname Group 4
Pool, Powell, Stephens, Evans, Vaughan, Bryan. STRs are very close, even thought the surnames do not match. Further description coming soon.
