    Appears to be interesting!

    Today I happened to bump into the site of www.jobstories.com.au through google. Does anyone know about this initiative or what it is all about?

    Cheers

    Do you know if your East Anglia relative has joined the East Anglia Project??
    Is this Washburn??

    I just did a quick look on the 1841 UK Census for the surname English born 1740-1780. A lot are from Suffolk and Norfolk, also a lot from Yorkshire, Durham, Northumberland, Glouscestershire and Somerset, Kent, Surrey and Middlesex. There is a website that gives the percentage of a surname distribution in the UK in the 1800s, I just have to find it again.
    I don't believe any of my Washburn relatives are in the East Anglia Project, but I don't know for sure.

    I know they are I1a, but that's about it.

    Hey Steve, you might be interested to know that Dicey is also known as Dianah English, July 1825, County Court Minute Book, PP 123-124.

    Also there is a good possibility that our ancestors came from Settrington, Yorkshire, England about 1560 and immigrated to Ireland about 1659. This has not been 100% verified but it all fits well!!

    Terry,

    It seems the parents of my gg-grandmother, Sarah Lucinda English (born 1833), were Wilson English and Sally Kimbrell.

    Wilson's parents were Matthew English and Disey ? English.

    It is. Unfortunately, I cannot make a connection to it other than the fact that one of my gg-grandmothers had the surname English.

    Well, on second thought, another of my gg-grandmothers had the surname Washburn, and I believe they came from East Anglia, as well.

    Guy -

    I know you haven't posted in this thread in awhile, but have you seen the East Anglia Geographic Project?

    It can be found here: http://www.geocities.com/thurlowons/...frame_set.html .

    It might be worth investigating.

    Depending on how my own Y-DNA testing turns out, I might be looking into it myself.

    Hi Stevo,

    Doing some digging I came up with a haplogroup of I1a as the most likely based on my DNA, with East Anglia as you stated a likely area they came from...strange because I lived there for 2 years about 25 years ago.

    Also, I1a can denote anglo-saxon origin.

    Best, Guy
    It sure can, and with a name like English, I'll bet it does!

    Of course, from what I understand, it is nearly impossible to distinguish Anglo-Saxon I1a from later Danish Viking I1a.

    It is a strange thing that your family may have come from East Anglia and that you happened to serve there while in the Air Force.

    I wonder if your English line is related to my great-great grandmother, Sarah Lucinda English.

    I just figured the name English might indicate origin among the Angles, who came to England from the Angeln district of southern Denmark, or that your family once lived in East Anglia. The fact that your haplogroup is I (maybe I1a?) tends to support that idea, since Scandinavia has a pretty high concentration of I1as, as does East Anglia in England, where not only the Angles settled but also many Danish Vikings.

    I don't yet know my own haplogroup (it's anybody's guess), since I only just recently submitted my test samples. I'm in Batch 147, which just got started at the lab.

    BTW - On my mom's side one of my gg-grandmothers was Sarah Lucinda ENGLISH. She married Walter Danley. Their daughter, Missouri A. "Missie" Danley, married my mom's paternal grandfather, Thomas Jefferson Gist.

    I don't have any dates yet for Sarah Lucinda English, and I don't yet know who her parents were, but her daughter Missie Danley was born in Lauderdale County, Alabama about 1852.

    Maybe we are related?

    My haplogroup is "I" so far with out the deepclade test being done.

    Funny you mention East Anglia because I lived there briefly with the RAF while in the USAF, based at Lakenheath.

    I hope that there is a remaining English family in England that eventually does the 37 marker test and I get a hit. That way we can back track that family. The rumor was our family was wealthy till just after the civil war...

    Where do you now live Steve, and what is your last name?

    Best, Guy English
