Y7DUG Henderson

Scotland

David Henderson,

1754 - 1838

This entry is not an official participant, and no further genealogical info is available at this time.

Henderson With E1b1b "Mediterranean" Haplotype

This haplotype belongs to the E1b1b haplogroup. The top match frequencies in the YRHD database fall in Bosnia, among Hungarian Jews, among the Aromun people of Macedonia, in Southern Italy and in Hungary at large. This is not a typical haplotype native to Scotland, and most likely came from Southern Europe - possibly as early as the Neolithic, but very possibly later as well, with Mediterranean traders, Roman troops or settlers, or merchants of Sephardic descent.

Y7DUG has no matches thus far among any other Hendersons in this data set.

Y7BRH Henderson

Aberdeenshire,

Scotland

John Henderson,

1782 - 1862

No further genealogical info is available at this time.

Henderson With G2 Haplotype

This haplotype belongs to the G2 haplogroup. The only Old World matches so far posted from YHRD fall in Bulgaria, Tuscany and Austria. The closest matches in the FTDNA Haplogroup database fall in England, Scotland, Ireland, Wales and Italy. This is a tough call. The YHRD matches could suggest a Roman, Germanic or even a Sarmatian origin, while the preponderance of British matches in the FTDNA database suggest that this haplotype came to Britain with one of the usual suspects - e.g., Anglo-Saxons or Norse Vikings.

Y7BRH has no matches thus far among any other Hendersons in this data set.

TZ3KS Henderson

Ulster

&

Maryville,

Tennessee,

United States

Thomas Henderson,

1779 - 1839

Thomas Henderson was living in Maryville, Tennessee as of 1805. He claimed on his census report to have been born in Ireland, and is thought to have been of Scots-Irish descent.

Henderson With I1 "Nordic" Haplotype

This haplotype is clearly Nordic in origin. Its top match frequencies in the YHRD database fall in Frisia, Sweden and Norway, and it has exact matches in Sweden, England and Germany in the FTDNA Haplogroup database. It clearly originated from the Northern Germanic portion of Europe - perhaps as early as the Mesolithic. This haplotype is nonetheless entirely consistent with an origin among the Angles, Saxons, Jutes, Danes or Norse Vikings.

Although there are several other I1 Hendersons in this data set, TZ3KS does not appear to be closely related to any of them.

MY4HM Henderson
Ulster

&

United States

Edward Henderson,

1735 - 1819

Edward Henderson is believed to have been of Scots-Irish descent.

Henderson With I1 "Nordic" Haplotype

This haplotype is most likely Scandinavian in origin. Its top match frequencies in the YHRD database fall in Denmark, Norway and Sweden. It could easily have come to Britain with the Norse Vikings or the Danes.

MY4HM has no close matches so far with any other I1 Hendersons.

A6KYV Henderson

William Henderson,

1723 - 1784

This entry is not an official participant, and no further genealogical info is available at this time.

Henderson With I1 "Nordic" Haplotype

This haplotype is also clearly associated with the countries of the North Sea and the Baltic. Its top match frequencies in YHRD fall in Sweden, Austria, Norway, Northeast Germany, Poland and Estonia. It could have come to Britain with the Norse Vikings or the Danes.

A6KYV and JCZPS are an exact match on 25 markers, and very likely represent the same lineage.

N4PX4 Henderson
Shetland Isles,

Scotland

William Magnusson,

born 1616

Although this individual believes his ancestor may have been a Magnusson and is part of David Faux's Shetland Isles project, he wanted to be included as a Henderson in the Border Reivers project as well - as an unofficial participant. He apparently has some doubts about his ultimate roots.

Henderson With Rare I1 Haplotype

This haplotype differs from the modal for I1 most dramatically through a DYS393 value of 15. It has no exact matches in the YHRD database, and the few closest fall in Bulgaria, Belgium and Saxony. This distribution does not suggest a Scandinavian origin. If it is not native to the British Isles, it is more likely to have arrived with the Flemish or the Anglo-Saxons than, say, with the Norwegians - at least judging so far from what we can see of its geographical distribution.

N4PX4 has no close matches with any other I1 Hendersons.

B2964 Henderson
Langholm,

Dumfriesshire,

Scotland

George Henderson,

ca. 1760 - 1805

George Henderson died on a farm he had leased in 1792, called Bush of Ewes. (Curiously enough, Bush of Ewes is still a working farm - as well as a B&B, at which my wife and I stayed for a few days during a trip to The Borders in 2004.) The participant's Henderson ancestors eventually migrated to Perth and stayed in Scotland.

Henderson With I2b Haplotype Of Possible "Celtic" Origin

This haplotype exhibits a DYS390 value of 20, which is unusual for the I2b haplogroup. It is very rare in the YHRD database, with only two partial matches - one in Ireland, and the other in Hamburg. This geographical distribution suggests that this haplotype originated in the British Isles during prehistoric times, or may have been brought there by Northern Germanics sometime in the historical period.

B2954 is only 2 steps distant rom JJ5AW at 25 markers, and 3 steps distant from CAH9N. It clearly belongs to the same sub-lineage.

JJ5AW Henderson
Sevier County,

Tennessee,

United States

William Henderson,

1786 - 1860

William Henderson's father may have been William Henderson, Sr., who was killed by Indians. William, Jr.'s mother was Elizabeth Parrott, born in Virginia in 1766. William married Mary Catherine Cannon in 1806 in Sevier County, Tennessee. They remained in Tennessee, where they raised several children.

Henderson With I2b Haplotype Of Possible "Celtic" Origin

This haplotype exhibits a DYS390 value of 20, which is unusual for the I2b haplogroup. It is very rare in the YHRD database, with only two partial matches - one in Ireland, and the other in Hamburg. This geographical distribution suggests that this haplotype originated in the British Isles during prehistoric times, or may have been brought there by Northern Germanics sometime in the historical period.

JJ5AW and CAH9N are only three steps distant at 37 markers, and very likely represent the same lineage. Both individuals can apparently trace their roots to the emigration of Ulster Scots to the Middle Atlantic and the Appalachian regions of America prior to the Revolutionary War.

CAH9N Henderson

Robert Henderson,

died 1804

Robert Henderson emigrated with his wife, nee Elizabeth Lindsay, around the time of the Revolutionary War. The couple settled first in Chester County, Pennsylvania, then in 1800 moved to Bald Eagle Ridge, Franklin Twp., Huntingdon County, where Robert died in 1804. They had nine sons and one daughter.

VA5R3 Henderson

Scotland

Henderson,

date of birth unknown

Although this is an official participant, no further genealogical info is available at this time.

Henderson With I2b Haplotype Of "Germanic" Origin

This haplotype is uncommon and has only two matches in the YHRD database, both in Germany. Its closest matches in the FTDNA Haplogroup database fall in England, with many additional matches throughout the British Isles, Scandinavia, the Netherlands, France and Germany. This haplotype may be of native British origin, but it could also have come to Britain with such groups as the Angles, the Saxons, the Danes, the Norse Vikings, the Flemish and the Normans.

VA5R3 has no close matches thus far among the other I2b Hendersons.

2XAUM Henderson

Alabama,

United States

(originally Scotland)

J. F. Henderson,

born btw. 1890 and 1900

The participant claims Scottish ancestry, but has no genealogical proof of this origin. J. F. Henderson was born in Alabama, and his son was born in Mississippi in 1920. This lineage is most likely Scots-Irish.

Additional Henderson With I2b Haplotype

The closest matches in the FTDNA haplogroup database fall in Ireland and the UK, and there are additional matches in Spain, Switzerland, France and Germany - as well as all across the British Isles. The highest frequency match in YHRD falls in Norway, followed by matches in Austria, Romania, Northern Italy and Germany. This one is hard to call, since I2b is believed to have been common among prehistoric Britons. This haplotype could have either a Norse, Anglo-Saxon or native Celtic origin.

2XAUM has no close matches thus far among the other I2b Hendersons.

JJCV8 Henderson
Scotland

David Henderson,

1812 - 1849

This entry is not an official participant, and no further genealogical info is available at this time.

Additional Henderson With I2b Haplotype

The top match frequencies in the YHRD database fall among Caucasian Americans, in Ireland, Albania, Bulgaria, Germany and England. The matches in Southeastern Europe may be the result of convergence with I2a haplotypes. This haplotype could easily be of native British "Celtic" origin, or it could have to Britain with some Germanic group.

JJCV8 has no close matches thus far among the other I2b Hendersons, but does exhibit strong similarities to ZST5K.

ZST5K Henderson United States

William Henderson,

born ca. 1796

William Henderson was born in the United States, but no further genealogical info is available at this time.

Additional Henderson With I2b Haplotype

The top European match frequencies in the YHRD database fall in Poland and Hungary. The closest matches in the FTDNA Haplogroup database fall largely in the British Isles, with a few matches in Germany, France, Norway and Denmark. This haplotype most likely has an Eastern Germanic or Scandinavian origin.

ZST5K has no close matches thus far among the other I2b Hendersons, but does exhibit strong similarities to JJCV8.

Z67CY Henderson

Stanley Henderson,

born 20th century

No further genealogical info is available at this time.

Additional Henderson I2b Of Possible "Celtic" Origin

The top match frequencies in the YHRD database fall among Caucasian Americans, and in Ireland, Southeast Europe, Germany and England. Its closest matches in the FTDNA Haplogroup database fall in Ireland, Scotland and elsewhere in the UK. This haplotype is very likely of native British "Celtic" origin.

Z67CY has no close matches thus far among the other I2b Hendersons.

TCVJQ Henderson Ulster Joseph Barton Henderson,

1811 - 1882

Joseph was born in New Jersey. His son Joseph Ritner Henderson was born in Cornpropst Mills, Barree Twp., Huntingdon County, Pennsylvania in 1842. The participant believes that his Henderson ancestors were Scots-Irish, citing the younger Joseph's marriage to a Scots-Irish emigrant from Belfast.

Possible J2 Henderson

TCVJQ is the one of the very few J2 Hendersons in our data set. This haplotype closely resembles the J1 "Cohen Modal Haplotype", but the DYS388 value is 15 rather than 16, and FTDNA has predicted the haplogroup as J2. The closest J2 matches in the FTDNA Haplogroup database fall in Northern Ireland and Germany, followed more distantly by additional matches in England, Scotland, the Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, Greece, Turkey and Uzbekistan. The only close match in YHRD falls in Romania. This haplotype may have come to Britain with Neolithic or Bronze Age settlers or traders - or even with Roman auxiliaries from Southeastern Europe, such as Dacians or Sarmatians. The multiplicity of matches in the British Isles does suggest that the lineage has existed there for some while.

VAPFK and TCVJQ are just 3 steps distant at 37 markers, and both claim ancestral roots in North Ulster. They are almost certainly related.

Joseph Henderson's father Samuel was also born in New Jersey, prior to 1800. His son, Jacob Busher Henderson, was born in Philadelphia in 1863 and died in Salem, New Jersey in 1932. Jacob served on the Salem police force between 1900 and 1930. Jacob's son Earl was born in Salem in 1893, and died in Pennsville, New Jersey in 1975.

Henderson With "Frisian" R1b Haplotype

This haplotype has a DYS390 value of 23, typical of "Frisian" or "North Sea Celtic" R1b. In fact, its highest frequency European matches fall in the Netherlands, followed by Austria, Sweden and the Basque country of Spain. Its closest matches in the FTDNA Haplogroup database fall in the British Isles, Germany and the Ukraine. This match patttern is consistent with an Anglo-Saxon origin.

YSS3A has no close matches thus far in this data set, although it does bear similarities with other R1b Henderson signatures that have a DYS391 value of 10 and a DYS439 value of 11.

Henderson With "Frisian" R1b Haplotype

This haplotype bears the DYS390 value of 23 that is frequently associated with "Frisian" or "North Sea Celtic" R1b. Its top match frequencies in the YHRD database fall in the Netherlands, the Ukraine, Southern Portugal and Germany, with additional matches in Spain, Finland and Sweden. This match pattern is not atypical of R1b in general, with a few more matches than is usual in Northeast Europe. As with all R1b, this haplotype could have arisen in prehistoric Britain or anywhere else in Western Europe. If it came from elsewhere in historical times, it could easily have come to Britain with Scandinavians, Angles, Flemish or other Northern Germanics.

JV3RY has no close matches thus far among the other R1b Hendersons.

TMEUX Henderson
Ulster

John Henderson,

1731 - 1829

John Henderson apparently emigrated from Ulster to America in the mid-18th century. He fathered William in 1775 and Ann in 1786. His son William fathered Samuel Henderson in 1807, and Samuel fathered William Henry Henderson in 1846.

Henderson With "Frisian" R1b Haplotype

This haplotype differs from the modal for a "Frisian" R1b haplotype through its unusual DYS389i,ii values of 14,29 - rather than the usual 13,29. To achieve this combination of values, the DYS389i and the DYS389ii STR markers must both differ from their usual values. Despite this difference, the geographical distribution of this haplotype in the YHRD database is classically "Frisian" - with matches in Denmark, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Belgium and Germany. Although it could be of native British origin, it may also have come to Britain with the Angles, Danes or Flemish.

TMEUX has no close matches thus far among the other R1b Hendersons.

KCTNM Henderson South Carolina,

United States

Archibald Henderson,

1754 - 1835

Archibald Henderson was born in South Carolina, most likely of Scots-Irish descent.

Henderson With "Frisian" R1b Haplotype

This haplotype could be classified as "Frisian" or "North Sea Celtic" on the basis of a DYS390 value of 23. The top match frequencies in YHRD fall in Norway, Germany and the Netherlands. The largest number of exact matches in the FTDNA Haplogroup database fall in the British Isles, with additional matches in Germany, Norway and Belgium. This haplotype most likely came to Britain with the Vikings, Flemings or Anglo-Saxons.

There are several close matches in Ysearch at 37 markers for KCTNM, but none in this admittedly limited data set.

A3FQ7 Henderson

George Henderson,

1750 - 1815

George Henderson emigrated from Scotland to America. He was naturalized in 1799, and died in Cecil Twp., Washington County, Pennsylvania in 1815.

Henderson With Rare "Frisian" R1b Haplotype

This haplotype differs from the "Frisian" modal through a DYS385b value of 28, and an unusual DYS19 value of 15. Its YHRD matches fall in Northern Italy, Switzerland, Germany and Portugal. It has no exact matches in the FTDNA Haplogroup database, but the closest fall in England and Germany. This is not a conspicuously "Frisian" geographical pattern, and suggests that this haplotype could just as easily be Celtic or Iberian in origin as Northern Germanic.

A3FQ7 has no close matches thus far among the other R1b Hendersons.

XQZS6 Henderson

John Henderson,

1737 - 1790

This branch of the Hendersons were farmers.

Henderson With DYS391=10 R1b Haplotype

This is an abbreviated haplotype of the Oxford Ancestors format, and is at least two steps distant from the Western Atlantic Modal Haplotype. It has several relatively high frequency matches among U.S. samples of varying ethnicity in the YHRD database, but the top European matches fall in Sweden, Norway and Germany. This unexpected match pattern suggests the possibility of a Scandinavian or Northern Germanic origin. The resemblance of this haplotype to more extended haplotypes common to the Scots, however, reminds us that its real origin is most likely closer to home.

XQZS6 is an exact match on all 9 markers provided with 6TZUY, GTZPV and 4GPBE. At least two of these Hendersons are of Scottish origin - including one from Fife - so there is a possibility that XQZS6 is related to someone in this cluster.

Thomas Henderson,

1730 - 1806

This entry is not an official participant, and no further genealogical info is available at this time.

Henderson With DYS391=10 R1b Haplotype

This haplotype differs from the Western Atlantic Modal Haplotype through a DYS391 value of 10 (rather than 11) and a DYS439 value of 11 (rather than 12). Its top European matches in the YHRD database fall in Portugal, the Netherlands and Spain. This suggests a conventional Iberian or Celtic origin.

Although 997BX and 6DTNC are 6 steps distant on 37 markers, they match each other exactly on 35 of those markers, and most likely represent the same lineage.  The DNA evidence is more than bolstered by the fact that both individuals can trace their roots to a paternal ancestor with the same name and the same dates of birth and death.

6DTNC Henderson
Scotland

Thomas Henderson,

1730 - 1806

This may be the same Thomas Henderson associated with entries 6TZUY and 997BX. Thomas married a woman named Frances, and sired children named Thomas, Anne, Sarah, Charles, Mary, Frances, James, John and E. Nathan Henderson.

Henderson With DYS391=10 R1b Haplotype

This haplotype differs from the Western Atlantic Modal Haplotype through a DYS391 value of 10 (rather than 11) and a DYS439 value of 11 (rather than 12). Its top European matches in the YHRD database fall in Portugal, the Netherlands and Spain. Exact matches in the FTDNA Haplogroup database fall all across Western Europe - including Germany, France, Ireland, Scotland, Iceland, Austria and England. This suggests a conventional British "Celtic" origin.

Although 997BX and 6DTNC are 6 steps distant on 37 markers, they match each other exactly on 35 of those markers, and most likely represent the same lineage.  The DNA evidence is more than bolstered by the fact that both individuals can trace their roots to a paternal ancestor with the same name and the same dates of birth and death.

Henderson With DYS391=10 R1b Haplotype

This haplotype differs from WAMH through a DYS391 value of 10, a DYS389ii value of 30, and a DYS439 value of 11. It has several relatively high frequency matches among U.S. samples of varying ethnicity in the YHRD database, but the top European matches fall in Sweden, Norway and Germany. This suggests the possibility of a Scandinavian or Northern Germanic origin. However, WAMH variations with DYS391 values of 10 are typical of many Scots, so a native British origin is more than likely.

6TZUY and GTZPV match exactly on 12 markers and could represent the same lineage. Both also match XQZS6 on 9 markers, and are 1 step distant from 4GPBE, 997BX and 6DTNC on 12 markers.  The fact that 6TZUY, like 997BX and 6DTNC, claims descent from the same Thomas Henderson suggests that the close match among the three is no coincidence.

XR696 Henderson Kildonan,

Caithness,

Scotland

George Alexander Henderson,

born 1813

The participant believes that George Alexander Henderson may have been the illegitimate son of George Henderson of Skail and Lucy Gow of Portskerra. He also asserts that his DNA results closely resemble those of several Scottish Gunns, a Scoto-Norse clan of which the Hendersons were a sept.

Henderson With Unusual Norse R1b Haplotype

This haplotype exhibits the unusual combination of a DYS391 value of 10 and a DYS392 value of 14. The highest frequencies of this haplotype in YHRD fall in Sweden, Switzerland, Denmark and Greenland. Although it is also found in Northern Italy, Romania and Germany, it may well be of Scandinavian origin - which would be consistent with a connection to the Gunn clan and their Viking roots.

XR696 has no close matches thus far among the other Hendersons in our dataset.

4GPBE Henderson

James Henderson,

1755 - 1849

James Henderson may have married a woman named Elizabeth Milby. He reputedly emigrated to America during the Revolutionary War, and fought under Lafayette at Yorktown. He may have been the James Henderson known to reside King & Queen Cty., Virginia from the 1790's through the early 1800's.

Henderson With DYS391=10 R1b Haplotype

This haplotype differs from WAMH through a DYS391 value of 10, a DYS389ii value of 30, and a DYS439 value of 11. It has several relatively high frequency matches among U.S. samples of varying ethnicity in the YHRD database, but the top European matches fall in Sweden, Norway and Germany. This suggests the possibility of a Scandinavian or Northern Germanic origin. However, WAMH variations with DYS391 values of 10 are typical of many Scots, so a native British origin is more than likely.

4GPBE is 1 step distanct on 12 markers from GTZPV and 6TZUY, but most likely represents a different lineage from at least 6TZUY. 6TZUY claims the same ancestor as 997BX and 6DTNC, the closest of which to 4GPBE is at least 8 steps distant on 37 markers, indicating that 4GPBE is not descended from Thomas Henderson's line.

William Henderson,

born 1765

William Henderson married Isobel Jack in 1785, and fathered John in 1790. John Henderson married Isobella Brown in 1817 in Wick, Scotland and emigrated to Nova Scotia. John's son James Brown Henderson was born in Durham, Nova Scotia in 1838. He married Dorcas Pride in 1865, and fathered James Arthur Henderson in 1870. James emigrated to Boston, and married Marion Locke Fiske about 1901.

Henderson With DYS391=10 R1b Haplotype

This haplotype differs from WAMH through a DYS391 value of 10, a rare DYS389ii value of 27, and a rarer DYS388 value of 13. The top Old World match frequencies in the YHRD database fall in Northern Italy, Portugal, Switzerland and Spain. This is a fairly typical Celtiberian match pattern, and suggests descent from native Britons in pre-Roman times.

K6E6X has no close matches thus far among other Hendersons in this data set.

EG3DT Henderson
Scotland

James Isaac Henderson,

1700 - 1770

James Henderson, nicknamed "Scottish James", emigrated to America, and settled in North Carolina, dying in Onslow Cty. in 1770. He owned a plantation called "Henderson's Landing", near the current location of Camp Lejeune. Most of his children were daughters, except for two sons - James, who died young, and another son named either Agaleus, Argulus or Hercules, from whom this branch of the Hendersons is descended.

Henderson With Unusual AMH Variation

This haplotype differs from WAMH through DYS385a,b values of 10,15 (rather than the modal 11,14), a DYS439 value of 11 (rather than the modal 12), and a DYS389i value of 14, which offsets the DYS389ii value to 30. This is a very uncommon variation of the Atlantic Modal Haplotype. There are only two low frequency matches in the YHRD database - in Spain and Saxony - and two 1 step mutations in the FTDNA Haplogroup database, in Ireland and Scotland. This haplotype is most likely of native British origin.

EG3DT and GK937 are exact matches at 12 markers. Moreover, both refer to a James Henderson born in 1700, who may or may not be the same person. We suspect these individuals share the same lineage.

Either William or his father are thought to have emigrated from Nova Scotia, but the family is Scottish in origin.

Henderson With Haplotype 1 Step Off WAMH

This haplotype differs from the Western Atlantic Modal Haplotype by a DYS385b value of 13. Its YHRD match pattern is standard Western European with a slight Scandinavian tinge, due to the quirk that DYS385b values of 13 are relatively more common in that region. The top Old World match frequencies fall in Norway, Portugal, Belgium, Sweden, Northern Italy and Denmark.

Henderson With Haplotype 2 Steps Off WAMH

This haplotype differs from the Western Atlantic Modal Haplotype by a DYS390 value of 25 (instead of the usual 24), and a DYS389i value of 12, which reduces the DYS389ii value to 28. The three top match frequencies in YHRD all fall in Spain, followed by one each in the Rhineland, Switzerland, Northern Italy, Ireland and Portugal. This is a classic Celtiberian match pattern, and suggests that this haplotype was native to Britain in pre-Roman times.

Henderson R1b Haplotype With Rare DYS19 Value Of 15

Although the top European match frequency for this haplotype in YHRD falls in Western Norway, most of the rest fall in Spain, Latin America, and among U.S. Hispanics and Basques. This strongly suggests that the haplotype came to Britain with the prehistoric Iberians.

5TM5J has an unusual 25 marker haplotype, with no close matches anywhere in Ysearch, much less with other Hendersons.
