Nethercott Y-Chromosome DNA-testing.

Noting that there has been little activity, in the Forum, I am writing to advise that I have participated in a 6-person Y-chromosome DNA analysis in early 2002. The six persons were all named Nethercott, or a variant, thereof, and five of the six had five-generation proven West Country documentation. They were a Nethercutt, a Neithercut and four Nethercotts; surprisingly, all share a Common Paternal Ancestor, very distantly: 300 yrs BCE (Before Common Era); some sharing a more-recent CPA, i.e., within the past 30-40 generations. I invite a Nether-
coat(e) and another Irish Nethercott/-cot/-cut with similar five-generation documentation of ancestry to be tested by Oxford Ancestors, to ascertain if they, too, may share the original CPA? I intend to make a separate post re: the surname and variants. I have an extensive database of all variants of the surname: more than 2000 names & also have the GRO (English & Welsh)Index fvrom 1837-1980.
