Unusual DNA connections
Posted by: v. suzanne sears (ID *****1949) Date: September 06, 2010 at 04:55:44

My unknown ancestor is a 24 out of 25 DNA marker match to William Curl: 1823

but he is also a more than perfect 33+ match to the last name O Brien....

And a better than 25+ match to one Carroll family

Both the O Briens and Carrolls come from the same tiny little spot in the south west of Ireland.

but he doesnt have either last name..........

Checking the Curl webpage for the DNA project:........I notice it is now reported that at least one Curl is matching strongly to the last name Bryant.....

The O Briens, Bryans, etc......are considered to be versions of the same thing.....

The Bryan spelling more often than not: was from the lineage of the Norman Counts of Brienne....who took up firstly in Wales and then in Ireland......Bryan in this case =Brienne

So if my ancestor matches O Brien, Curl and Carroll......equally as well.....

Could it just be that in some cases: using a different accent:

that Curl is the slurred version of the Irish a differnt country

What is curious is that Bryan and Carroll as last names all lived in the same tiny regions of Irish villages in the south west.

What is further curious is that I have learned that the profile of my ancestor is considered Southern Irish Modal.....

with 8 unique markers placing him into this Haplotype.....

It could be entirely possible that at least one branch of Curls are actually Southern Irish Modal as well.......and are Carrolls.

Food for thought
