Welcome to the Warburton Website, which includes my Warburton One-Name Study, and Warburton DNA Project. To learn more about this site please visit the various sub-pages under the About menu item.
I hope you will find this site useful in your own studies of Warburton family history. You are invited to subscribe to receive notifications of future Posts about my research, future site updates, or anything else of interest.
The Warburton DNA Project enhances the knowledge gained from traditional genealogical research. For example about half of all Warburtons belong to one of two groups, one descended from a Norman knight, the other from a Saxon inhabitant of the village of Warburton. Several smaller groups have also been identified. My DNA Project has devised a low cost strategy to determine if you belong to one of these groups, so please contact me (click my picture to the right) if you are interested.
The site includes a Contact Me page. I welcome questions, comments, and anything you have which may enhance the site. There is also a Reach Out page for you to submit anything you would like to me to share with Subscribers via a Post.
As I predicted the Early Bird sale at FamilyTreeDNA has morphed into the Black Friday Sale, running until November 30th. This time the Y37 test is reduced even further, from $119 to $79. BigY-700 is still reduced from $449 to $379, and an upgrade from Y37 to BigY-700 is reduced from $339 to $319.
In April 2022 I published the family tree of a new family, the Bury and Finland family, alongside a new DNA result from Finland that matched the Lancashire Group of Warburtons. The tree included a Thomas Warburton who emigrated to Finland in 1859 to manage a cotton spinning mill. Recently Susan Leggett sent a document written by her great uncle Thomas, the great grandson of the original Thomas. This article is based on that document. Susan is the granddaughter of Thomas’s sister Kate who emigrated from Finland, to Canada.
The recent upgrades to three clans were all initiated by information on emigrant families. This Post is about an emigrant family from the Garryhinch clan, who emigrated to the USA from Ireland. Subsequent Posts will focus on the emigration of 3 sisters from Timperley, Cheshire to Saskatchewan, and a family who emigrated from Lancashire to Finland, with a branch emigrating on to Canada.
Ireland to USA
Gary Merrill sent me information on the family of Anthony William Warburton who was born circa 1782.
A new DNA sale has been announced by FamilyTreeDNA with reductions across all their major products, The ones most relevant to the Warburton DNA Project are the Y37 test, reduced from $119 to $99, and the BigY-700 test reduced from $449 to $379. An upgrade from Y37 to BigY-700 is reduced from $339 to $319.
The Y37 test is recommended if you just want to see if you match one of the already identified Warburton groups. The BigY-700 test is necessary if you are not already linked to one of the lineages covered by my SNP Ages from the Discovery Tool document, or if your result will help place you more accurately in one of the group haplotrees. If you wish to discuss your situation please contact me. Some BigY candidate’s results will be of interest to other project members, raising the possibility of shared expense.
I am still awaiting one result from tests ordered in the last sale. When I get it I will be updating a number of project documents that present previous results.
The sale runs to November 20th. However in previous years such sales have been repeated or extended to cover Black Friday and Christmas.
