The Humphrey Surname Project
Personal website: http://humphreygenealogy.com Identify Humphrey family lines & relationships in America, Europe, & elsewhere. E.G., a 9th cousin's 37 marker results resolved a paternity question in descendants of Michael Humphrey, b. 1620, Lyme Regis. Several genetic clusters were successfully merged into family lineages by sharing genealogical data. We're tracking several immigrants to New England & Eastern states in the 1600's. Historical, genealogical, & DNA evidence indicate several lines: I1 Anglo-Saxon & Norman Scandinavian, several R1b (Celtic, Norman, ...), R1a Swedish, & E3b (Mediterranean origin - descendants of Jonas Humphrey, 1565). Two R1b lineages intersected in common Welsh ancestry, 1700's. DNA results & ongoing research indicate common I1 ancestry of HUMPHREY, LILES, MORTON, SUTTON, & PEET ~(1100-1600), England & France. Some Humphrey & Liles ancestry is historically traceable to Isle of Wight, Humphrey to Normandy - all to southern England, circa 1086. DNA analysis can help us delineate these ancestries & pinpoint the Time to Most Recent Common Ancestor. Recently confirmed/paper trail to Michael Humphrey's parents: Michael Humphrey (1577) & Martha Pride, married in Bridport, Dorset, July 4, 1615. We're looking for surname Humphrey or Hue(s) from Honiton, Devon & proximity, and northern France: recent records in Lyme Regis, Dorset, and Honiton show aliasing of Humphry & Hues surnames, 1600 & afterwards. Our Michael of Lyme Regis was likely the son of Michael Humphry, 1577, Honiton, (alias Hues??) We're currently very interested in members with surname Hue(s) (Hews, Hughes, ...) in northern France as well as England.
