The Dymond/Dimond/Diamond DNA Project - Results

The Diamond and variant surname yDNA study has identified 25 distinct yDNA lineages. There are 11 deep ancestral haplogroups represented.
A lesson learned over time is not to assume or speculate which lineage you descend from. Until you have yDNA test results you can not know with certainty.

The 37 marker panel is the minimum number of markers recommended. For those of one of the common European haplogroups, for example R1b, testing to 67 or 111 marker level is recommended.

A study of US census records and documents shows that the earliest source of the surname in the US was Ireland and England. By the 1800s the largest numbers were from Ireland. Eastern Europe became an additional source in the twentieth century.

Diamond/Dimond of Derry and Antrim, Ireland
Family lore and documents lead many Irish Diamond/Dimond to County’s Londonderry and Antrim. After years of yDNA study one primary paternal lineage has been identified and defined. This lineage is associated with the Bann River Valley County Londonderry from at least the early 1600s to present. See Lineage One results. We need to be mindful genetics don’t always tell the whole story. In Gaelic society pregnant women were regarded as very valuable and sons along with cattle were the main resource of a people. Absorption into a successful clan was the rule. There were levels of marriage and setting aside a partner was common place. Absorption into a family by second marriages or adoption was and is common. While lineage one is confirmed to the area there are other Diamond/Dimond lineages whose family lore and documents lead them to the same vicinity. Lineages labeled 6, 10, 11, 14, and 17 are among these. These lineages might want to pay attention to non same surname local families either in Derry or place of settlement.

*Colonial America *U.S. *Canada *Australia
Haplogroup: I2a2a1a1  (L369+ M284+ L126+ L137+ M223+)


Participant 25337 has been tested for new SNPs L369, L126 and L137 and was derived [+] for all. There is an older English clade and a younger N. Irish/Scot clade to which this lineage belongs.
Deeply rooted in Counties Londonderry and Antrim, Northern Ireland along the Lower Bann River. Once O Diomhain the spellings are now Diamond and Dimond. The Dimond/Diamonds were an erenagh family, that is the family owned the land that was used for the place of worship and generally provided those who ministered there. Erenagh is from the Gaelic 'ceann' meaning head, leading, principal; some use it to mean 'stewardship' or 'the keeper of'. The early Celtic church differed in structure from the rest of western Christianity in that it did not have dioceses. Instead, it was monastic, that is, each area was an independent church governed by an abbot and each parish had its own bishop elected from a local erenagh family.

This is the yDNA lineage signature of the Edward Dyman family of Beekman and Rombout Patent, Dutchess County, New York Province.
There is lore in the English Edward Dimond family of Marblehead, Massachuseetts Colony that a Wampanog native was adopted into the family after 
Metacomb's War 1675-77[King Phillips War]. This English family may be the origin of the adopted surname by this Native American lineage.

Some surname spellings; Dymond, Diamond, and Dimond.
Primary early geographic locations are Dymond Hollow-Luzerne and Wyoming Co.s, PA; Woodstock, NY., Fishkill, Philipstown, Poughquag, Beekman and Poughkeepsie, NY. AND
 Fredericksburgh, Ontario.

Published genealogies of this lineage include:
Genealogy of the Dymond, Williams and Related Families 1981 by Robert H. Dymond covering the Luzerne County, PA branch. An expanded version now exists.
DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER by Herbert James Malone. Presented to United Empire Loyalist Archives, Adolphustown, 1992. This covers the Fredericktown, Ontario branch.

Lineage I
England *Colonial America
Haplogroup: R1b1b2

An American Colonial family rooted in Wethersfield, Connecticut Colony. The surname is Deming and is included in this study as many early publications speculate of a connection between the Dymont/Diman family of East Hampton, Long Island (Lineage 7), The Dimon Family of Fairfield (Lineage 4), and the Deming Family of Wethersfield, Connecticut (Lineage 9). This surname project has definitively shown by yDNA there was no biological link. This Lineage came from Shaford, Essex, England and is outlined in the publication
Genealogy of the Descendants of John Deming of Wethersfield, Connecticut by Judson Keith Deming. 1904 Also; The History of Ancient Wethersfield Connecticut , Volume IIThe Memorial History of Hartford County Connecticut is from volume II Goodwin and Morgan Ancestral Lines, volume II The Early History of Southampton, L.

*U.S.
Haplogroup: R1b1b2

Two branches of this lineage have been discovered. One branch migrated from County Galway, Ireland to the US in the 19th century. The lineage is still found in Ireland in the vicinity of Woodford and Portumna. Migrants to the US are found in Maryland, Pennsylvania, and La Salle Co., Illinois. Surname spelling Dimond and Diamond.

The second lineage is thought to have arrived in America in 1847 and is known to have resided in Boston, Mass., Rockland and Thomaston, Maine. This branch, it is thought, came from County Mayo. Surname spelling Diamond, Dimon, Dimond.

Although Dimond's from Devon and New England had been fishing Newfoundland waters since at least the early 1600s, the time of first settlement in Newfoundland appears to be in 1773, when William Dimond of Adam’s Cove laid claim to a plot of land. From all the evidence it seems certain he was part of a larger family that settled there.  Dimonds also appeared in early records of Lower Island Cove, some 12 miles distant from Adam’s Cove, and it has been proven through Y-DNA analysis that the two groups are of the same family.  It is also speculated that the early Dimond family of Catalina, another Newfoundland fishing community, belong to this branch as well, though Y-DNA testing has yet to be carried out in this area.

Lineage Q
Haplogroup R1b1b2
Participant Line:

The lineage begins with Hugh Diamond of Pennsylvania b. 1808/1809, who was in York Co. (1850) and Lancaster Co. (1860/1870). There is an Irish neighborhood in south Philadelphia (several blocks wide and deep) comprised 3 primary Diamond/Dimond families, with several generations of Hugh’s. Whether any of these families are linked is unknown at this time. Several of them were members of the Hibernia Society and were involved in the liquor distilling business and all have at least some indications on some records that tie them to Londonderry N. Ireland. Hugh Sr. (b 1756 d.1837) was a grocer, and another Hugh (b 1780s) was in the liquor business. A third Hugh who used Jr. (b. 1805 d 1842) was a cordwainer (shoemaker). John Diamond (b 1805) also in the liquor business may have been a brother or cousin to Hugh Jr. Ancestry of Hugh (1808/1809) may extend from one of these Philadelphia families. One of the descendant branches of Hugh and Mary migrated to Pike Co. IL

Ireland
Haplogroup: R1b1b2

Rooted in Counties Sligo and Mayo, Ireland. The oldest known ancestor is Francis Diamond. Francis Diamond (aka Old Frank) was a stone mason of much acclaim. Little is known of Old Frank, although his work has been identified on box tombs by style and quality of workmanship in Sligo and Mayo graveyards. His best carved pieces are the Black (dated 1825) and Scott box tombs in Skreen graveyard. He lived in Toberawnaun in the townland of Skreen in the late 18th and early 19th century. The decorated box tomb to Mark Dowdican, dated 1830, in Skreen, is thought to be the last he carved. The Diamond family is the oldest stone mason family in County Sligo, now having served for seven generations. A rhyme about the Diamond stone masons has passed down through generations across County Sligo.
'Diamonds cut diamonds and diamonds cut glass but no-one cuts stone like the Diamonds of Ardnaglass' The book Had Me Made - A Study of the Grave Memorials of Co.Sligo from c.1650 to the Present by Mary B. Timoney, published in 2005, details much of the Diamonds monumental work and includes some family history. Local tradition has been that the Diamond stonemason family came to Skreen c. 1780......from County Derry. Their primary work being to build houses and other structures, but they became best known as monumental sculptors.
