Genealogies and Possible Deep Ancestry

ID Surname

Variant

Place of Origin Earliest Known Ancestor Possible Deep Ancestry
MS2RX Hall North Carolina,

United States

Bryant Hall,

born ca. 1790, died ca. 1850

Bryant (or Bryan) was born between 1790 and 1795 in North Carolina, lived for 15 years in Jackson County, Florida, and later moved to Alabama, where he died between 1850 and 1855. The participant is quite certain his ancestor was of Scots-Irish extraction.

Hall With E Haplotype

This haplotype has been SNP tested as haplogroup "E". It is positive for M96, but for no other SNP's that would indicate membership in any known sub-clade of "E".

If this haplotype came with the participant's Hall ancestors from the British Isles, it may have originated with the North African troops who served at the western end of Hadrian's Wall, at Burgh-by-Sands, Cumbria. There has been some speculation that Y-DNA signatures of African origin would appear among the Borderers as a result of this historical event.

MS2RX and NFZVC match on 34 out of 37 markers, and are clearly related.

NFZVC Hall Lexington,

South Carolina,

United States

Joel Hall,

1810 - 1885

Joel Hall moved to Marion, Florida in 1850. The family lived there until 1940, when Henry Thomas Hall - the participant's grandfather - died. His son, Henry Theron Hall, moved to Texas.

Hall With E Haplotype

This haplotype has also apparently been SNP tested as haplogroup "E".

If this haplotype came with the participant's Hall ancestors from the British Isles, it may have originated with the North African troops who served at the western end of Hadrian's Wall, at Burgh-by-Sands, Cumbria. There has been some speculation that Y-DNA signatures of African origin would appear among the Borderers as a result of this historical event.

MS2RX and NFZVC match on 34 out of 37 markers, and are clearly related.

JPHRF Hall Virginia,

United States

Charles Hall,

ca. 1812 - 1867

Charles Hall was born in Virginia, but no other genealogical information is currently available.

Hall With E1b1a Haplotype

If this haplotype came with the participant's Hall ancestors from the British Isles, it may have originated with the North African troops who served at the western end of Hadrian's Wall, at Burgh-by-Sands, Cumbria. There has been some speculation that Y-DNA signatures of African origin would appear among the Borderers as a result of this historical event.

The closest match in YHRD falls among Afro-Caribbeans in England, and the closest matches in the FTDNA Haplogroup database fall exclusively in Africa - mostly West Africa, with the exception of Kenya.

JPHRF has no matches with any other entry in our Hall data set thus far.

KSM64 Hall Perry,

New York,

United States

David P. Hall,

1824 - 1897

David Hall was born in Perry, New York and died in Hiram Rapids, Portage County, Ohio. His father may have been John Hall, born in Massachusetts in 1784 and died in Hamden Twp., Ohio in 1863. The ancestors of these Halls are believed to have arrived in Massachusetts in the 17th century.

Hall With G2 Haplotype

This participant has been SNP-tested as a G2. The closest matches in the FTDNA Haplogroup database fall in Italy and Wales, with additional close matches in Belgium, Switzerland, Germany, and the Czech Republic. The only exact YHRD matches fall in Germany and England. This haplotype may have come to Britain with Anglo-Saxons or Danes, although haplogroups G and G2 have been associated with West Asian populations. It may have originated with Indo-Iranian nomads who mixed with Northern Germanic tribes before the Anglo-Saxon migrations - or with Sarmatians who settled in England during Roman times.

There are no other Halls so far in our data set who belong to G2.

WT9B5 Hall Kittery,

Maine,

United States

William Hall,

1801 - 1857

William Hall was born in Kittery, York County, Maine and died in New Castle, Rockingham County, New Hampshire. According to the participant, the Halls were Downeasters and may have had roots in Devon, England. Family lore holds that these Halls were of English or Scottish origin. They may even be Scots-Irish in origin, as many Scots-Irish settled in Northern New England during colonial times.

Hall With Unusual I1 Haplotype

This haplotype has a very unusual DYS393 value of 9. This alone would limit the number of close matches with other I1's, including those in YHRD. However, it is relatively close to one widespread haplotype whose strongest frequencies occur among Eastern European gypsies in Bulgaria, Hungary and Slovakia, as well in Greece and Estonia. It also has multiple high frequency matches in Norway and Sweden, and is most likely Scandinavian in origin when found among individuals of British descent. Nonetheless, that haplotype is only relatively close, being several steps distant from this one.

WT9B5 has no close matches thus far in our Hall data set.

4K2XX Hall Newstead,

Erie County,

Pennsylvania,

United States

Jeremiah Hall,

ca. 1807 - 1855

This is not an official participant, so no additional genealogical details are available.

Hall With Nordic I1 Haplotype

This individual has a common I1 haplotype. The highest match frequencies in YHRD fall in the Netherlands, Germany, Sweden, Denmark and Norway. This haplotype is clearly of either Norse, Danish or Anglo-Saxon origin.

At 25 markers, 4K2XX is 2 steps distant from NDAJJ.

NDAJJ Hall Ulster &

Surry County,

Virginia,

United States

Isaac Hall,

died ca. 1730

Isaac Hall was living in Surry County, Virginia, when he died - but he had probably emigrated from Ulster. The family is believed to be of Scots-Irish origin.

Hall With Nordic I1 Haplotype

This participant has a fairly common I1 haplotype. The closest matches in the FTDNA Haplogroup database fall in England, Germany, Norway and Sweden. Eight of the ten highest match frequencies in YHRD fall in Norway or Sweden, with one each in West Germany and the Netherlands. This haplotype is clearly of either Norse, Danish or Anglo-Saxon origin.

NDAJJ and RK2NS, both descended from Scots-Irish Halls in Virginia, are an exact match on 25 markers. NDAJJ is also just 2 steps distant from 4K2XX and 1 step distant from ERYB4.

RK2NS Hall

Virginia,

United States

William Hall,

1790 - 1845

William Hall was born in Virginia and died in Tennessee. He married Mary Pritchard in Virginia in 1817, and fathered Matthew P. Hall in 1826. Although Matthew was also born in Virginia, he died in Mississippi in 1862. The family is believed to be of Scots-Irish origin.

Hall With Nordic I1 Haplotype

This participant has a fairly common I1 haplotype. The closest matches in the FTDNA Haplogroup database fall in England, Germany, Norway and Sweden. Eight of the ten highest match frequencies in YHRD fall in Norway or Sweden, with one each in West Germany and the Netherlands. This haplotype is clearly of either Norse, Danish or Anglo-Saxon origin.

At 37 markers, RK2NS is 1 step distant from ERYB4 - and identical to NDAJJ at 25 markers.

ERYB4 Hall British Isles This is not an official participant, so no genealogical details are available at this time. Hall With Nordic I1 Haplotype

This individual has a fairly common I1 haplotype. The highest frequencies in YHRD fall in Ossetia, Norway, Italy, Switzerland and England. Although the presence of Ossetia provides a tantalizing suggestion of Sarmatian ancestry, there are, in fact, multiple hits in Norway, so we can conclude that this haplotype most likely came to Britain with the Norse Vikings.

At 37 markers, ERYB4 is 1 step distant from RK2NS - and 1 step distant from NDAJJ at 25 markers.

3QUJN Hall Probably Ulster

George Hall,

born 20th century

No other genealogical data is available at this time, but the participant is believed to be of Scots-Irish origin.

Hall With "Ultra-Norse" I1 Haplotype

This participant has a common I1 haplotype that is definitely of Northern Germanic origin, but which has an unusual range. The highest match frequencies in YHRD fall in two Greek locales, followed by six locales in Sweden and Norway, with numerous lower level matches in Germany, Eastern Europe and elsewhere. The largest number of exact matches in the FTDNA Haplogroup database fall in Iceland, Germany, Scotland, England and Poland - with numerous others in Denmark, Sweden, France, Belgium, Russia, Lithuania and Serbia.

This haplotype most likely came to Britain with the Danes, the Norwegian Vikings or the Normans, but it may also have been carried by the Goths and other Northeast Germanic tribes into the Balkans and elsewhere.

3QUJN has no close matches thus far in our Hall data set.

No other genealogical data is available at this time.

Hall With Nordic I1 Haplotype

This participant also has a fairly common I1 haplotype, but one four steps distant from NDAJJ. Nearly all of the highest match frequencies in YHRD fall in the Baltic region - e.g, Sweden, Northeast Germany, Poland, Norway, Estonia and Lithuania. This haplotype is clearly of either Norse, Danish or Anglo-Saxon origin.

WPHYC has no close matches thus far in our Hall data set.

268816 Hall Barnstable,

Devonshire,

England

John Hall,

born 1540

John Hall's grandson George Hall (1603-1669) emigrated to Massachusetts Bay Colony and settled in Taunton, Bristol County. George's great-grandson, Isaac Hall (1714-1778), left Taunton and settled in Lyme, Connecticut. A branch of this lineage eventually settled in Bradford County, Pennsylvania, but this was a staunchly New England line for many generations.

Hall With "Ultra-Norse" I1 Haplotype

This I1 haplotype has the distinctive "Ultra-Norse" DYS390 value of 23. Its top match in the YHRD database falls in Norway, and its closest matches in the FTDNA Haplogroup database fall in Sweden and Germany. It most likely has a Viking origin.

268816 has no close matches thus far in our Hall data set.

Henry lived all his life in Patrick County, then later migrated to Gloucester, Wise and Dickinson Counties, eventually settling in Knott County, Kentucky.

Hall With Likely I2a Haplotype

This haplotype has been SNP tested as I2a. Matches in the YHRD database fall in the Caucasus, the Netherlands, Ireland, Germany, Poland and Estonia. The match in the Caucasus probably reflects convergence with a J2 haplotype, so we are left with the rest, which are all Northern European. Since it belongs to an "I" subclade, this haplotype could easily have come to Britain with the Angles, the Flemish or the Danes.

There are no matches so far with any other Halls.

JSZW9 Hall Antrim,

Ireland

William Hall,

born 1702

This is the participant's earliest known ancestor, according to family tradition.

Hall With Possible I2b Haplotype

This haplotype, even without the DYS385a,b values, is very rare in YHRD. The only matches occur in the Northern Caucasus, Vietnam and among Brazilians of European dissent. The Asian matches are likely to be the result of convergence with haplotypes of other haplogroups. Haplogroup I2b is most common along the North Sea coast, suggesting a Germanic origin. Some DNA genealogists, such as Grant South, believe that I2b may have been common among Celtic-speaking natives of British Isles.

JSZW9 has no close matches so far with any other Halls.

Hall With Possible I2b Haplotype

This haplotype is uncommon in the YHRD database, scoring one match in Austria. It is most likely of Germanic origin, suggesting Anglo-Saxon descent.

9RGN4 matches ZMAS4 and 4TBHP exactly on all 12 available markers.

This haplotype is uncommon in the YHRD database, scoring one match in Austria. It is most likely of Germanic origin, suggesting Anglo-Saxon descent.

ZMAS4 and 4TBHP match on 23 out of 23 available markers. Both Halls have roots in the Southern U.S. and appear to be of Scots-Irish descent. We suspect they are related.

367F5 Hall Virginia,

United States

William Hall,

1775 - 1840

No other genealogical data is available at this time.

Hall With Possible I2b Haplotype

The top match frequencies in YHRD fall among European Americans and in Ireland. Yet it also scores relatively high match frequencies in Bulgaria and Albania, which suggests either a convergence with I2a haplotypes or that this haplotype may actually belong to I2a. Most of the additional matches, however, fall in Germany in England. This is most likely of Anglo-Saxon origin.

367F5's closest match among the Halls is only a 20/25 with 4TBHP. This is not close enough to suggest a recent shared paternal ancestor.

2P8J8 Hall Bedford County,

United States

James Henderson Hall,

ca. 1824 - 1904

James Hall was born in Bedford Cty., Tennessee in 1824. This participant is very likely related to RA77U.

Hall With J1 Haplotype

The closest matches in YHRD fall in Northern Italy, Tunisia, Iran, Algeria and Pakistan. Top matches in the FTDNA haplogroup database fall in Syria, Cyprus and Gambia. The haplotype appears to have a Near Eastern origin, and probably spread across the Mediterranean and into North Africa. This may be a Melungeon signature, but if it is of Borders origin, then it is a prime example of a haplotype that could have arrived with the Hamian archers of Syria or other Near Eastern or North African auxiliary units that served along Hadrian's Wall.

2P8J8, F295M, KVJPX and RA77U are far and away each others' closest matches, and are most likely all related. At 37 markers, KVJPX, RA77U and 2P8J8 match each other at a distance of 2, and F295M matches all three at distances of just 1 or 2 on 25 markers.

George Hall,

1603 - 1669

George Hall arrived in Massachusetts Bay Colony in 1636 as part of The Great Migration initiated by the Puritans. He eventually settled in the town of Taunton.

Hall With J2 Haplotype

This haplotype runs the risk of convergence with I1 haplotypes because of its DYS385a,b values of 13,14, which are atypical of either a J1 or a J2. Consequently, its YHRD matches - with Northeast Germany and Finland - are possibly suspect. In fact, its closest identifiable matches in the FTDNA Haplogroup database fall in Germany and Finland - but these matches both belong to a subclade of haplogroup I. It has closer matches with two J2 haplotypes in this database, but the origin of both of these has been marked "Unknown".

There are no matches so far with any other Halls, at least in this data set.

Hall With Q Haplotype

This haplotype is uncommon in the YHRD database, scoring a single match in Central Norway. However, it is only 1 step away on 12 markers from the "Old Norse" Q Modal Haplotype, and most likely came to the British Isles with the Vikings.

There are no matches so far with any other Halls.

F382A Hall Abington Parish,

Virginia

Thomas Hall,

born 1664

Thomas Hall is the probable, but not definite, progenitor of this line. The earliest verified paternal ancestor is David Hall, who resided in the Stokes County area of North Carolina and was born circa 1780. David fathered James Hall in 1804, James fathered William Henry Hall in 1830, William fathered James Henry Hall in 1867, and James Henry fathered George Dewey Hall in 1900. This branch of the Hall clan were tobacco farmers, largely in Stokes County, North Carolina.

Hall With Norse R1a Haplotype

All but one of the closest matches in the FTDNA Haplogroup database fall in the British Isles, the exception falling in Norway. The highest match frequencies in YHRD fall in Russia, Austria, Germany, Hungary and the Ukraine. This haplotype is most likely of Viking origin. However, considering the preponderance of British matches in the FTDNA samples, and the large number of Germanic matches in the YHRD sample, these Halls could just easily have come to Britain with Angles, Saxons, Jutes and other German immigrants.

There are no matches so far with any other Halls.

Major Brian Hall,

1762 - 1833

Major Hall was a veteran of the Revolutionary War. The participant believes he was descended from George and Mary Hall, who emigrated from Devonshire, England in 1636 or 1637. They settled in Duxbury, Mass. and eventually moved to Taunton.

Hall With Norse R1a Haplotype

The closest matches in the FTDNA Haplogroup database fall in England, Scotland, Ireland, Iceland, Norway, Finland and Armenia. The highest match frequencies in YHRD fall in Iran and Nepal, and among Pakistanis - with multiple matches in Norway and Germany. This haplotype appears in Central and Southern Asia, but most likely came to Britain with Vikings, Danes, Angles or Jutes.

There are no matches so far with any other Halls.

GWSBV Hall British Isles

Thomas Hall,

born 20th century

No other genealogical data is available at this time.

Hall With Possible ht35 Haplotype

This is an R1b haplotype with an DYS393 value of 12. It also has a DYS464d value of 18, which frequently occurs among R1b haplotypes of Eastern or Southeast European origin. On the other hand, this value also occurs fairly often among other Hall R1b haplotypes, coupled with a DYS393 value of 13 and - like GWSBV - a DYS458 value of 19. GWSBV may simply be a mutation from these, rather than a true ht35.

Be that as it may, the closest matches in the FTDNA Haplogroup database occur in the British Isles, among native Siberians, and in Iceland and France. The top YHRD frequencies occur in Turkey, Azerbaijan, Romania, Hungary, Norway and Portugal. This haplotype could be of native British origin - simply because it is R1b - but it could also easily have arrived with Roman troops or settlers, or even with the Vikings.

There are no close matches so far with any other Halls.

Keith Hall,

born 20th century

This participant was an adoptee and is not expected to have close matches among our Hall data set.

R1b Hall With Unusual DYS390 Value Of 22

This haplotype differs from WAMH by two steps on a single marker - a DYS390 value of 22 where the modal value is 24. The highest match frequencies in YHRD fall in Sweden, the Netherlands, Alsace-Lorraine and Switzerland. The closest matches in the FTDNA Haplogroup database fall in England, Greenland (probably of Danish origin) and Hungary. The haplotype may have come to Britain with Vikings, Anglo-Saxons or the Central European Celts. (That is, if the participant has British patrilineal ancestors, which is far from certain.)

As expected, there are no close matches with any other Hall in our data set. Nor are there any close matches in Ysearch. The participant describes himself as fair-haired and blue-eyed, so a Nordic origin is a distinct possibility.

CSM8N Hall Doocarrick Townland,

Cavan,

Ireland

David Hall,

1811 - 1891

The participant's father was born in Lisnageer, Cavan, and emigrated to New York City in 1927. There are apparently many Halls in County Cavan, mostly Ulster Scots. Other surnames in the participant's family tree include Bell, Browne, Wade, Sharpe, Montgomery, Harnel and Shields.

"North Sea Celtic" R1b Haplotype

This is the modal haplotype for the "North Sea Celtic" group, characterized by an DYS390 value of 23. Top matches in the FTDNA Haplogroup database fall in England, Germany, Denmark, Austria, Sweden and the Netherlands - and in one non-Teutonic nation, France. Top matches in YHRD fall in Denmark, the Rhineland, Belgium, Switzerland, the Netherlands and Germany. Although a Celtic origin in definitely possible, so is an Anglo-Saxon or Danish origin.

There are no really close matches with other Halls on a 37 marker level, but it is close to the Western Atlantic Modal Haplotype like several other Hall R1b haplotypes.

744E9 Hall Bradford,

Colony

Richard Hall,

1648 - 1730

No other genealogical data is available at this time.

Unusual Hall R1b Haplotype

This is one of several Hall R1b haplotypes with a highly deviant value at marker DYS392 - in this case, 11 where the modal is 13. This haplotype is marked in Ysearch as having been SNP-tested as R1b, and its closest SNP-tested match at 25 markers is also another R1b.

Top matches in YHRD, using this exact haplotype, would most likely belong to haplogroup R1a. Top matches in YHRD, using the closest normal R1b haplotype - that is, with a DYS392 value of 13 - fall in the Netherlands, Northern Italy and London. This is consistent with a Germanic (i.e., Anglo-Saxon) origin.

744E9 has no close matches so far among the other Halls in our data set.

"Celtic" Haplotype 1 Step Off WAMH

This haplotype is one just 1 step off the Western Atlantic Modal Haplotype, the most common haplotype in Western Europe. Top matches in YHRD fall overwhelmingly in areas with a strong Celtic or Celtiberian past - Portugal, the Netherlands, Spain and Switzerland. There is also a match in Western Norway, although a Norse origin is not compellingly indicated. A haplotype with this match pattern is most likely of prehistoric Iberian or later Celtic origin.

G52PM matches WGZJQ, FKMCS and B4WFM exactly for the first 12 markers, but is close to none of these at 25 markers.

"Celtic" Haplotype 1 Step Off WAMH

This haplotype is one just 1 step off the Western Atlantic Modal Haplotype, the most common haplotype in Western Europe. Top matches in YHRD fall overwhelmingly in areas with a strong Celtic or Celtiberian past - Portugal, the Netherlands, Spain and Switzerland. There is also a match in Western Norway, although a Norse origin is not compellingly indicated. A haplotype with this match pattern is most likely of prehistoric Iberian or later Celtic origin.

At 37 markers, NAUUJ is 2 steps distant from WGZJQ in this data set - but between 2 and 5 steps distant from five members of the Hall Surname Project that are not included here, including two Halls with roots in Northumberland. This clearly represents a true Border Reiver Hall lineage.

John Hall and his relatives lived in Woodborn, Bothal, Longhorsely, Shilbottle, Alnwick, Stannington and Newbiggin-by-the-Sea. He married Catherine Richardson in Alnwick in 1798, and their first son John was born in Alnwick in 1799 or 1800. At that time, the senior John Hall was listed as a husbandman and a native of Stannington. This participant is himself a resident of England.

"Celtic" Haplotype 1 Step Off WAMH

There is also a match in Western Norway, although a Norse origin is not compellingly indicated. A haplotype with this match pattern is most likely of prehistoric Iberian or later Celtic origin.

PVQWH is an exact match for WGZJQ at 25 markers. Their haplotype has unusual DYS464 values, so they are very likely related.

James Hall,

1760 - 1836

James Hall served in the Continental Army during the Revolutionary War. His son, James Wyly Hall, was born in Kentucky in 1787, and his grandson, Samuel Parks Hall, was born in Monroe, Tennessee in 1813.

"Celtic" Haplotype 1 Step Off WAMH

This haplotype is one just 1 step off the Western Atlantic Modal Haplotype, the most common haplotype in Western Europe. Top matches in YHRD fall overwhelmingly in areas with a strong Celtic or Celtiberian past - Portugal, the Netherlands, Spain and Switzerland. There is also a match in Western Norway, although a Norse origin is not compellingly indicated. A haplotype with this match pattern is most likely of prehistoric Iberian or later Celtic origin.

At 67 markers, VHCNR has matches within a distance of 4 steps with three Halls that are (as yet) outside of this group, one of which has Scots-Irish roots in Georgia, and another of which has roots in Northumberland. It also has other, more distant matches with Halls in this data set that display more or less WAMH signatures with DYS391 values of 10. This particular WAMH variation is common among the Halls, and appears to represent a lineage.

Matthew Hall was a coalminer who lived near Ayr at Newton-on-Ayr. The family has lived in Ayrshire since that time, principally in the parishes Newton-on-Ayr, Ayr, St. Quivox, Dundonald and Irvine. The participant himself was born in Ayrshire.

Possible Norse or Norman R1b Haplotype

The closest matches in the FTDNA haplogroup database fall in Shetland, Scotland, England, Iceland, Portugal and Spain. The top match frequencies for this partial haplotype in YHRD fall predominantly in Sweden and Norway, with lower frequency matches in the Rhineland, the Netherlands, Paris, Zaragoza and Northern Italy. Either a Celtiberian or a Scandinavian origin is clearly possible. The appearance of locales associated with Norman history - such as Paris, Zaragoza, and parts of Italy - suggest that this haplotype may even have come to Britain with Normans of Scandinavian descent.

The closest match is on 23 out of 25 markers with B4WFM, from Derbyshire, England.

Richard Hall, born 1610

Richard Hall emigrated to Virginia in 1652 with his wife and three sons. He, and apparently each of his sons, received a 50 acre land grant upon arrival. His sons eventually migrated to North Carolina. The participant belongs to the 11th generation of his line of Halls in America.

Possible Nordic or Norse-Gaelic R1b

This haplotype has an interesting match pattern. The exact matches in the FTDNA Haplogroup database fall mostly in Iceland and Shetland, with a few in England. 1 step matches include those locales, as well as Denmark, Norway, Scotland, Poland and the Ukraine. Norway, Sweden and Denmark appear among the top six European matches in YHRD, as do Belgium, Portugal and Northern Italy. This haplotype could indeed be of Iberian or Celtic origin, but both the FTDNA and the YHRD match patterns suggest that a Scandinavian or Norman ancestry is very possible.

N7G67 matches AEDUY on 22 out of 25 markers, and B4WFM on 21 out of 25 markers.

Possible Nordic or Norse-Gaelic R1b

Norway, Sweden and Denmark appear among the top six European matches in the YHRD database, as do Belgium, Portugal and Northern Italy. This haplotype could easily be of Iberian or Celtic origin, but a Scandinavian or Norman ancestry is very possible.

AEDUY matches NYG67 on 22 out of 25 markers, and both B4WFM and GA5HP on 20 out of 25 markers.

The Halls emigrated to Massachusetts in the 17th century, but eventually moved to Chester, New Hampshire, and then finally settled in Triangle, New York (outside Binghamton) about 200 years ago.

Western Atlantic Modal Haplotype

This haplotype is Western AMH. Most likely Pictish, Brythonic Celtic or Norse-Gaelic in origin - although any Western European background is a possibility.

This 25 marker signature is quite common, with several 25/25 and 24/25 matches in the Ysearch database - including a few with fellow Border Reiver descendants surnamed Clendennin and Elliott - but the closest matches to the Halls in this group are a 20/25 with AEDUY, and a 21/25 with B4WFM.

The only information we have about Alexander Hall so far is that he was born in Alabama and died in Mississippi.

Western Atlantic Modal Haplotype

This haplotype is Western AMH. Most likely Pictish, Brythonic Celtic or Norse-Gaelic in origin - although any Western European background is a possibility.

Although there are several Halls in this data set that are also WAMH, there is only one significant match in the FTDNA customer database at either 37 or 67 markers, and that individual does not appear to be included here.

JPCRA Hall

United States

Martin Hall,

1765 - 1841

The descendants of this Hall line migrated from North Carolina to Kentucky, then to Utah, Idaho and, finally, Oregon.

Hall R1b Haplotype 2 Steps Away From WAMH

This haplotype differs from WAMH by 2 steps on a single marker, a DYS392 value of 15 where the modal is 13. Although there are several Hall WAMH haplotypes, none of them matches this one any more closely than on 20 out of 25 markers - hardly enough to suggest a shared paternal ancestor in any recent century.

The top matches in YHRD fall in Spain, Romania, Switzerland, Northern Italy, Central Portugal and the Rhineland. This combination suggests, in this context, an origin among the Celts or the prehistoric Iberians.

JPCRA has no close matches so far with any other Halls.

5KFX8 Hall Australia

Stuart Hall,

born 20th century

The participant, who is a resident of Australia, claims a family tradition of an origin in the Scottish Borders, but no further details are available at this time.

Hall R1b Haplotype 1 Step Away From WAMH

This haplotype differs from WAMH by 1 step on DYS439, which has a value of 13 rather than 12. Although there are several Hall WAMH haplotypes, none of them matches this one closely.

The top matches in YHRD are the same as those for WAMH, and are therefore widespread across Western Europe. The closest matches in the FTDNA Haplogroup database are similarly widespread.

5KFX8 has no close matches so far with any other Halls, especially at 37 markers.

Unusual Hall R1b Haplotype

This haplotype is 5 steps distant from WAMH, and exhibits the highly unusual DYS392 value of 12. The closest matches in YHRD fall primarily among Hispanic or Iberian samples, and in various locations in old Celtic heartland of Central Europe - such as Switzerland, Hungary, the Rhineland and Northern Italy. This haplotype is most likely Iberian or Celtic in origin, and might have been found among the pre-Roman population of Britain.

W5K9X has no close matches so far with any other Halls.

Thomas Hall, an Ulster Scot with roots in The Borders, emigrated from Scotland to Wilmington, North Carolina about 1745. His son, Jesse Hall, eventually settled in the vicinity of Southwest Virginia and Southeast Kentucky.

Unusual Hall R1b Haplotype

This haplotype differs from WAMH by a DYS385a value of 12, a DYS392 value of 14 - and a DYS389i,ii pair of 14,30 rather than the usual 13.29 (which counts as just a 1 step difference). The only matches in YHRD fall in Switzerland, Spain and Poland. The closest matches in the FTDNA Haplogroup database fall in Germany and Ireland, with additional matches in Ireland, England, Germany, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Iceland, the Netherlands, Italy and Portugal. It is most likely of native British Celtic origin, but the widespread matches in Scandinavia and Germany could support an Anglo-Danish ancestry as well.

Closest match among the other Halls is with GA5HP on 21 out of 25 markers, which is not enough for comfort.

Nathaniel Hall,

1676 - 1718

This branch of the Halls was a Quaker family that settled in North Carolina, then migrated to Belmont and Guernsey Counties, Ohio, and then finally to Iowa.

Unusual Hall R1b Haplotype

This haplotype has a DYS19 value of 15, a DYS389i value of 14, and a DYS391 value of 10. This is an unusual combination that produces a deceptive match pattern in YHRD, as it converges with likely haplogroup O haplotypes in Mongolia, Singapore, Taiwan and Central Asia. The likely R1b matches fall in Iberia and Germany. This haplotype is most likely of Western European descent.

33MMB has no close matches so far in our Clan Hall data set.

HX7ED Hall Ashton-Under-Lyne,

Lancashire,

Edward Hall,

ca. 1798 - 1865

Edward Hall emigrated to America in 1827, and settled in New York. He had four daughters, and one son who served with the 14th New York Infantry during the Civil War.

Celtic or Baltic R1b Haplotype

The closest matches for this haplotype in the FTDNA Haplogroup database fall equally in the British Isles and other Northern European nations, such as Denmark, Germany, Russia and Austria. The closest matches in the YHRD database fall in Northern Italy, Spain, England and Sweden. This haplotype could easily have come to Britain with the Iberians or the Celts of Central Europe - or with the Angles or the Danes.

This haplotype matches B4WFM and AEDUY on 9 out of 12 markers, but these matches are hardly close enough to indicate a relationship.

Benjamin Hall,

1759 - 1833

Benjamin Hall was born in Virginia, lived in Fauquier and Loudon Counties of that state, then migrated in Kentucky in 1788. He and his wife Martha had eight sons and three daughters. Benjamin's immediate descendants were largely Presbyterian, suggesting a Scots-Irish ancestry.

Additional R1b Haplotype

The highest frequencies in the YHRD database fall in The Netherlands, Portugal, Belgium, Hungary and West Germany. The closest matches in the FTDNA Haplogroup database fall in the British Isles. This haplotype could easily be of either prehistoric Iberian, Flemish or Anglo-Saxon origin.

There are no close matches thus far for this haplotype, although it does shares some unusual features - a DYS19 value of 15 and a DYS391 value of 10 - with HX7ED.

Hall With "Ui Niall" or "Irish Sea" Modal Haplotype

This haplotype is extremely common in Irish samples, especially as demonstrated by the recent Trinity University DNA study. It also occurs frequently on the Isle of Man, Western Scotland and in portions of Northwest England settled by the Hiberno-Norse. Top matches in YHRD fall predominantly in Ireland, England and Friesland.

No other Hall in our data set exhibits the "Ui Niall" haplotype.

1 Step Distant From WAMH

This haplotype differs from the Western Atlantic Modal Haplotype at one marker, DYS390, which has a value of 25 where the modal is 24. The highest match frequencies in YHRD fall in Northern Italy, Ireland, Spain and the Netherlands. This haplotype most likely came to Britain with the prehistoric Iberians or with later Celtic speakers.

There are no close matches with any other Hall in our data set at 37 markers.

Z7JYT Hall Jefferson County,

United States

William James Hall,

died ca. 1830

William married Elmina Easton in Jefferson County in 1825, and had one son, James William (1827 - 1874), who lived in Newark, Ohio and Rich Hill, Missouri. Family tradition holds that William James Hall was related to the Methodist reformers Charles and John Wesley.

Celtic or Iberian R1b Haplotype

This haplotype, because of its rare DYS390 value of 26, has an unusual match pattern. The top YHRD matches fall in the Netherlands, Belgium, Estonia, Spain, the Rhineland, Germany, Greece, Poland and elsewhere. It is most likely of Celtic or Anglo-Flemish origin, but some of the unusual matches in Eastern Europe and the Mediterranean suggest that this haplotype might easily have come to Britain from elsewhere.

Z7JYT does not have any close matches with any other Halls in this group, although it shares with most of them the R1b haplogroup.

MGS2N Hall Henwyke,

Worcestershire,

England

Anthony Hall,

born ca. 1523

Anthony Hall was living in Henwyke as of 1573, and the participant estimates that he was born about 50 years earlier. His son was Thomas Hall, his grandson was Francis Hall, and his great-grandsons were Francis, Jr., John and Edward Hall. Edward and John emigrated to Plymouth, Massachusetts in 1636. Edward died in Rehoboth, Mass. in 1670.

Unusual Hall R1b Haplotype

This haplotype is unusual for R1b because its DYS392 and DYS393 values are both 14 rather than the modal 13. However, Whit Athey's Haplogroup Predictor scores R1b as the most likely haplogroup for the 25 marker haplotype. The closest match in the FTDNA Haplogroup database fell in Poland, the next closest matches fell in England, Scotland and Ireland, with additional matches in Germany, Spain and Greece. The only match in YHRD, filtered by DYS439 and DYS438 values of 12 to exclude convergent N haplotypes, fell in Western Germany. This haplotype may be Germanic in origin.

Out of 37 markers, MGS2N is 5 steps distant from both Q595H and ZARUZ. All three are probably related.

United States

John Hall,

1807 - 1859

John Hall married Elizabeth Lyle in 1828 in Elizabeth Township, PA. Their children were John, Mary Jane, Elizabeth, James, Alexander and Joseph. Four were born in Pennsylvania, and the youngest two were born in Jefferson County, Indiana, where the family moved in 1839. Their descendants stayed in Jefferson County until 1973. Now they live in Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio, Illinois and Kansas.

Unusual Hall R1b Haplotype

This haplotype is unusual for R1b because its DYS392 and DYS393 values are both 14 rather than the modal 13. However, Whit Athey's Haplogroup Predictor scores R1b as the most likely haplogroup for the 25 marker haplotype, and the full 37 haplotype has a 2 step match in Ysearch with an apparently SNP-tested R1b. The only match in YHRD, filtered by DYS439 and DYS438 values of 12 in an attempt to retrieve only R1b haplotypes, fell in Western Germany.

Out of 37 markers, Q595H is 2 steps distant from ZARUZ and 5 steps distant from MGS2N. All three are almost certainly related.
