95% of the time, the MRCA will have lived between 390 and 480 years past (1530 AD - 1620 AD) which relates well to the paper research done to date.

163136 writes: "Traditional genealogical research suggests that one Andrew Eyton (b. c. 1590) was the possible MRCA between the paternal lines shown. Comparing each kit to the YUtility Haplotype result indicates (with 95% confidence) that the MRCA lived between 390 and 480 years past (1530 AD - 1620 AD), which relates well to the paper research done to date. Additionally, 163136 writes, "A body of circumstantial evidence indicates that the EKA of the several surviving branches of Norfolk Ayton--and therefore the possible ancestor of Andrew Eyton--was one Thomas Arton/Ayton (b. c. 1495), although the exact line to him probably is unprovable owing to gaps in the public records.  EDITED AS REQUESTED BY 163136 JULY 23 2012 - There are at least five known related surviving Norfolk Ayton paternal lines: the Attleborough line of 240028, the Wymondham line of 188925, and three branches of the Gissing line, including 163136. END EDIT Insofar as there is no obvious namesake for the fairly unusual surname AYTON in East Anglia (where the name is not uncommon), most Norfolk Ayton researchers believe that the surname was derived from one of the two twin villages of this name in North Yorkshire. Research suggests that the progenitor of our lines probably derived his surname from West Ayton, North Yorkshire, around 1400. Phonetically equivalent spelling variants in the earliest Yorkshire records include AYRTON, EATON, HATON, HARTON, HARITON, HARTON, HEATON, HEYRTON and HEYTON. Known spelling variants in the Norfolk records include AITON, AYETON, AYTE(E)N, EAT(T)ON and EIGHTEEN(E); additionally, some likely pre-1650 variants in Norfolk include ARTON, ARTUIN, ARYTON, AYRTON, AYRTYN and ATHENS. "

GENEALOGIES 

163136 - The earliest known proven ancestor was Robert Ayton/Eighteen. He was born 1714 - 1724, possibly in either Kenninghall or Banham, Norfolk; he married Hannah Langley of Banham on March 31, 1740, in Scole (cum Osmondeston), Norfolk; they lived for a time in Tibenham, Norfolk, where at least two of their three known sons were born; later they moved to Great Moulton, where one of their sons was born; Robert was buried on April 07, 1782, in Great Moulton, Norfolk. In 1871, Robert's great great grandson (163136's great grandfather), John Ayton (1843-1920), emigrated from Gissing, Norfolk (where John's family had resided for three generations), and settled on a homestead on the newly-opened Nebraska prairie and founded the American branch of Norfolk Ayton (of whom there are no other known relatives outside of 163136's immediate family). - CONFIRMED POSITIVE FOR R-L165(S68)

188925 - The earliest known proven ancestor was the carpenter John Ayton (b. c. 1700), who was buried on May 18, 1754, in New Buckenham, Norfolk. Circa 1724, John married Mary Gay of Wymondham (1699-1772) in Attleborough, Norfolk, and they had nine children. At the time of John's death, he owned four houses in Old and New Buckenham and some land in Banham (all in Norfolk). Their second son, the farmer John Ayton (1727-1798), married Elizabeth Page of Besthorpe and founded the Wymondham Ayton dynasty that lived on Dial Farm for a number of generations down to 188925. TESTED POSITIVE FOR R-L165(S68)

Please note - I am in the process of a changeover of web design programs and am unable to change column colors at this time.  With the July 2012 addition of 240028 to the analysis, DYS 464c should be colored the ancestral modal color and not the L165 modal color or yellow.  "17" is ancestral to the Ayton Haplotype and the "16" of 163136 appears at this time to be the mutation.  Further testing of 163136 close male relatives could reveal the generation in which this mutation took place.

Current Analysis

DYS 390 = 24 - shared by the distant cousins, the mutation from the "25" of R-L165 pre-dates their MRCA who was likely born between 390 and 480 years past (1530 AD - 1620 AD)

DYS 391 = 10 - shared by the distant cousins, the mutation from the "11" pre-dates their MRCA who was likely born between 390 and 480 years past (1530 AD - 1620 AD)

DYS 385 = 14/14 - shared by the distant cousins, the mutation from the "11/14" pre-dates their MRCA who was likely born between 390 and 480 years past (1530 AD - 1620 AD)

DYS 389 - The distant cousins experienced a mutation since the birth of the MRCA who was likely born between 390 and 480 years past (1530 AD - 1620 AD). Although we cannot predict with 100% certainty in which paternal line the mutation took place, the evidence, when viewed within the context of R-L165, is that it took place in Kit 163136 and that the ancestral modal was "13/29" and not "14/30". The testing of additional Ayton relatives could clarify this mutation. UPDATE July 23 2012 The addition of of 240028 appears to confirm that the mutation took place in the paternal line of 163136 - The ancestral mode still appears to have been 13/29.

DYS 447 = 24 - shared by the distant cousins, the mutation pre-dates their MRCA who was likely born between 390 and 480 years past (1530 AD - 1620 AD)

DYS 448 = 19 - shared by the distant cousins, the allele pre-dates their MRCA who was likely born between 390 and 480 years past (1530 AD - 1620 AD). Note that this marker is split 50/50 among the L165 group. YUtility defaulted to the higher value in determining the L165 modal at this marker. There are three possible scenarios for this marker within L165 which will hopefully clarify as the number of positive individuals increases:

1) DYS 448 = 20 is the correct modal for L165 and those who have a "19" at this marker have randomly "corrected" back to the P312 modal.

2) DYS 448 = 19 is the correct modal for L165 despite YUtility defaulting to the "20" and those who have a "20" here have experienced random mutations resulting in convergence.

3) There are two "branches" of L165 identified by DYS 448

DYS 449 = 29 - shared by the distant cousins, the mutation pre-dates their MRCA who was likely born between 390 and 480 years past (1530 AD - 1620 AD) - it appears to have been a correction back to the "29" of P 312.

DYS 464 = 15, 15, 16, 17 - the "15" at 464a is shared by the distant cousins and pre-dates their MRCA who was likely born between 390 and 480 years past (1530 AD - 1620 AD). A second mutation took since the MRCA. With only two cousins to evaluate, the true family modal cannot be triangulated however when viewed within the context of L165, it would appear that the second mutation took place in the paternal line of 188925. UPDATE JULY 23 2012 - The ancestral mode appears to have been "15, 15, 17, 17" which reverses the mutation - it now appears to have taken place in the paternal line of 163136

DYS 576 - usually considered a volatile marker, this mutation from "18" to "17" appears to pre-date 1600 and appears to be a Branch Indicator.

DYS 570 - the R-L165 modal is currently "16" - considered a "faster" marker but in this case it probably pre-dates 1600 for the Ayton Cousins based upon the modal of "16" for L165.

CDY - usually considered a volatile multi-copy marker, this combination appears to pre-date 1600 and appears to be a Branch Indicator - UPDATE JULY 23 2012 - Kit 240028 experienced a mutation.

DYS 442 - A Branch Indicator which pre-dates 1600 - note that Cluster One also has the "11" here - this could indicate a closer relationship between the Ayton's and Cluster One than with other R-L165 carriers - this should clarify as more R-L165 carriers are found.

Markers 38 - 67 - Only one cousin has tested these markers; due to the stability in this group of markers, it can be assumed that the cousins will most likely share the alleles shown in the above table - however, upgrading to be certain of this is recommended due to the fact that there are no close genetic matches to these two individuals within the databases available.

DYS 413b - "24" also the modal allele for the Beall Group of R-L165 carriers - testing of the second cousin at this marker will determine the age of the mutation (pre or post 1600) - pre 1600 could be indicative of a "branch" of R-L165 with DYS 413= 23/24) however, it has recently been determined that this is a faster moving marker so it is equally possible that this random convergence.

DYS 534 - L165 mode = "16" - the Aytons appear to have experienced a "correction" back to the "15" of P312

DYS 487 - a unique mutation within the R-L165 carriers - testing of the second cousin at this marker will determine the age of the mutation (pre or post 1600).
