Surnames

Hickson, Higson, Hinkson, Hixon, Hixson

Background

The goal of the project is to study possible relationships among Hicksons, Hixsons, and Hixons thoughout the world.  Only males have Y-chromosomes, so only males whose paternal line is Hickson/Hixson/Hixon can participate. If you are female, you can have a male HI*ON relative submit a sample for your line. To participate meaningfully, testees will need to share their direct male line ancestry back to the earliest known Hickson/Hixson/Hixon.  If you have questions, please contact the project administrator at botteron@alum.mit.edu

Free 12-marker Y-DNA test to any British man with the surname Hickson or any variation thereof provided you supply a pedigree chart (at least 5 generations of paternal line & wives).  Oldest ancestor must have died before 1841.  Proof required, no secondary sources.
