Y-DNA for Owen/Oyne(s) in Exeter/Topsham
Posted by Arthur Owen on 11/5/2016, 21:20:37
Two male line descendants of Arthur Owen (1756-1823), shipwright of Topsham, who went to Prince Edward Island, Canada in 1790 have been Y-DNA tested. Their results (G-L177) match each other and are distinctly different from most other participants in the Owen DNA Project (Group 28 at http://www.hprg.com/owen/files/testresowen.htm). |
I believe the Owen family of Topsham came from Exeter where they appear to be listed as Oyne(s) in various 17th century parish records (see http://ourmaritimeties.com/tng/pedigree.php?personID=I9305&tree=Arthur&display=standard&generations=4 for ancestors of the above Arthur Owen).
I am looking for any male line descendant of other lines of this Owen/Oyne(s) family, especially if descended from another son of either John Oynes of St Mary Steps, Exeter or Thomas Owen/Oynes, the glover, of Exeter.
Thanks, Arthur Owen
