The Dymond-HudsonRiver Surname Project
This project was spun out of the broad Diamond and surname variant study in 2007. That study is ongoing and currently has identified over 25 unique paternal lineages. Dymond of Hudson?s River is a focused study of the lineage of Edward Dymen of Beekman Patent, New York Colony. In 2011 a second Dymond/Diamond paternal lineage, as defined by Y chromosome DNA, was discovered to have been living in the vicinity at the same time as the Edward Dymen lineage. This second lineage has colonial maritime roots in Newfoundland, the Gulf of Maine, Boston, and Albany, NY. The Edward Dymen lineage inhabited lands east of the Hudson River in the 1700s from Phillipstown and Fishkill in the south, north to Claverack and Kinderhook, to the Manors of Livingston and Rensselaerswyck, and Stepehentown. Edward Dymen lineage patriarchs: Johannes Dimond 1723; Marcus Dymond 1726; Matthew Dymond 1740; Jacob Diamond 1744; John Diamond 1759; Jacob Diamond 1756; John Diamond 1760; Henry Dimond 1755; Isaac Diamond c.1746 These men are found east of the Hudson River in the Province of New York, from Phillipstown on the south to Albany in the north in the 1700s.
