[Quote:Jerome Lafayette Saint John]
What I have learned is that the science is absolute in matching lineages BUT there have been so many illegitimate children and adoptions that paper trails and DNA may not match up. For example, Sir Oliver was purportedly a Russell, and even though the paper trails say St. John his DNA may read as Russell. It grows even more complicated when you add the fact that the Russell's may have had an illegitimate child in their midst.[/quote]

You say that you are the admin for the DNA of the St. John Project, but your really trying to do is place a St. John who is not part of the original St. John's into a bastardize position with your theory's. Your theory's impact the lives of those in England and United Kingdom. My son was the first in the USA to match 12/12 with A O St. John of England / Wales. I've talked to Sophia the wife of Mr A O St. John and she was so taken aback by making up theories to meet your view of where Matthias St. John is placed in the St. John family. Did you ever think that maybe Matthias was adopted or was bastardized. No I don't think so. You are making those in the USA look really bad especially when they have all the papers and all of them are filed with the Peers. My son's line of St. John descends from Adam de Port. Which will make it extremely unique.
