Re: Yeomans & Toone/Tune Y-DNA match and family connection

In Reply to: Yeomans & Toone/Tune Y-DNA match and family connection by Gloria J. Tune of 68

Gloria,

I just did a STR count against myself, James Toone(Tune), as well a SRY2627 member Juillet from Loge Fougereuse, France. Myself and Juillet possess a rare DYS marker 448 at 17 repeats. I've only found this repeat in a few Welsh and I believe an Irishman who claims a legacy from Wales when the Norman-Cambrians invaded Ireland. Allegedly some historical connection with the famous Norman known as Strongbow.

The STRs of Toone(Tune) and Juillet at 58 markers show they share 37 markers, whereas myself and Juillet at the same 58 markers, share 36 of them. I have a Compact Disc on the Yeomans Genealogy, but a lot of it is very speculative and very random at best. I am also finding a Simon Yeomans who is connected to the Virginia Company in the 1600s. His occupation was a fishmonger from what I can gather. He may have been a London investor and never set foot in the colonies, but I'm not sure.

My genealogical record is pretty poor, at best I can recall there is a connection to Nova Scotia or New Brunswick with a late arrival into North America in the 1880s. However, this should not discount that other relatives made their way in earlier times or crossed back and forth. I'm patiently waiting for the answers and hoping yDNA and autosomal DNA can help out.
