We now have three y-dna tests that confirm the historical & genetic lineage from Edmund Fanning, the 1653 immigrant to Conn. This last test shows a genetic distance of 1 from one of the previous test results and a genetic distance of 2 from the other test. The historical documentation also shows that this current person tested is closer to the person whose y-DNA test showed a genetic distance of one.
This latest test was from a descendant of Edmund Fanning as follows:
Edmund Fanning b. 1620 d. 1683 m. Ellen emigrated USA 1653
Edmund Fanning b. 1651 Tipperary Ireland d. 1768 m. Margaret Mary Billings b. 1659 d. 1715
Edmund Fanning b. 1682 d. 1768 m. Hannah Parke b. 1685 d. 1734
William Fanning b. 1715 d. 1758 m. Anna Miner b. 1718 d. 1752
William Fanning b. 1741 d. 1799 m. Zerviah Stanton b. 1742 d. 1816
Edmund Fanning b. 1762 d. 1835 m. Mercy Corp b. 1760 d. 1830
James Fanning b. 1799 d. unknown m. Eunice Turner b. 1794 d. 1870
Edmund Seymour Fanning b. 1832 d. 1888 m. Hannah Fanning (cousin) b. 1830 d. 1909
Edmond Seymour Fanning b. 1868 d. 1948 m. Sarah Olive Josephine Wilson b. 1869 d. 1928
This Edmund Seymour Fanning was the grandfather of the latest person tested.
With this third test, it is with a certainty that the line of Edmund Fanning of Conn. is in no way related to the Virginia lines of Bryan Fanning, Sr. of Amelia Co., Va. or
of John Fanning from Chestnut Creek in Wythe Co., Va. Edmund was also not related to Abraham Fanning, son of James Fanning of SC. This has all been demonstrated through
the results of y-DNA testing. In fact, Edmund's genetics are from a different Haplogroup than the other lines mentioned. For more information go to the website of the Fanning DNA Project at: www.worldfamilies.net/surnames/f/fanning.
