The Hundley Surname Project

Description:

Welcome to the mystery of the origin of the ?Hundley? surname. This is a mystery that DNA evidence can solve if those with the ?Hundley? surname participate in this Family Tree DNA project. What is the origin of the ?Hundley? surname? Different sources give different answers. Is it a variation of the locational surname given to those who lived in the Village of ?Huntley? in Gloucestershire, England near the border with Wales? Is it a variation in the ?Huntly? surname, whose head is the Earl of Huntly and the Chief of the Gordon Clan of Scotland? Is it a variation of the ?Handley? surname from Hampshire, England where they were given lands by the Duke of Normandy for their role in conquering England in Battle of Hastings in 1066? Is it a variation in the Irish Clan ?Handley? surname? Is it a name given by the Anglo-Saxons who invaded England in the 5th century to those who lived near a pasture of hounds? Is it a name given to those who came from Handley in Northhamptonshire, England? Is the "Hunley" surname a variation of the "Hundley" surname? Is it the surname of their slave-owner adopted by former African-American slaves? Could this be a surname with multiple independent origins where many of these answers are true? Questions the Hundley surname Project seeks to answer include: 1. Do any individuals with the ?Hundley? surname have DNA matching any members of the former Huntley surname project? 2. Do any individuals with the ?Hundley? surname have DNA matching any members of the Hampshire England Project? 3. Do any individuals with the ?Hundley? surname have DNA matching any members of the Gordon Clan surname project? 4. Do any individuals with the ?Hundley? surname have DNA matching a person with the ?Handley? surname? If so, is this ?Handley? a descendant of the Irish clan ?Handley? or a descendant of an ancestor from either Hampshire or Northhamptonshire in England? 5. Do any individuals with the ?Hundley? surname have DNA which can be traced back to the Anglo-Saxon tribes that invaded England in the 5th century? 6. Does the DNA of different individuals with the ?Hundley? surname support different theories of the origin of the surname? (i.e., Does DNA evidence support multiple theories of the origin of the ?Hundley? surname rather than a single theory?). 7. To what extent do persons with the ?Hundley? and ?Hunley? surnames have matching DNA? 8. To what extent do White and Black persons with the ?Hundley? surname have different DNA? 9. To what extent is Phillip Hundley the common early ancestor of Americans with the ?Hundley? surname? Does the DNA of the descendants of Phillip Hundley support a particular theory about the origin of the surname?
