The real Wes(t)cott family ?
Posted by: Fred Westcott (ID *****2327) Date: October 18, 2009 at 19:53:19

Does anyone have any idea if there is only one Westcott/Wescott/etc. family , or are there several unrelated Westcott lines? I have my y-DNA marker values and have compared them to four other Westcotts. These are apparently four unrelated families (only two of the five match) where I though there would be only one family with a few possible mutations over 500 years.
The alternative explanation is that some men were given or assumed the name Wes(t)cott or variation because of adoption or some other reason. If this is the case then three of the four Westcotts' whose DNA I've checked do not descend from the original Westcott family. Which of the four sets of DNA that I've seen in the authentic Westcott line ?
Does anyone else have their y-DNA that they would like to compare ?
