Wheadon Wheaton DNa Project updates Results

If you are stuck with a brick wall on a Wheaton, Wheadon or Weeton line any spelling DNA can Help. Or if you would like to further our research or confirm a relationship. Please contact me. Very interested in all Wheatons, Wheadons, Weetons , Wettons etc.

To date there are 22 members of the FTDNA Wheaton Surname Project---more if you count those tested elsewhere and we are now accepting females with Autosomal results. Although Males who do the Y-DNA STR testing are the most successful. Here is a round up of current results:

Group A: 2 Men who are of the Sidbury, Devon England Wheatons (one from Devon the other from Australia)

Group B: 11 Men who are related to the immigrant Robert Wheaton from England to Salem MA in 1636---still looking to find a match in England to place his ancestry there.

Group C: 2 Men who are related to Thomas Wheadon from Devon who are not related to the WheaTon group A

Group D: 2 Men who are descended from the Staffordshire, England Wettons (some later spelled Wheaton) not far from the village of Aston Wheaton

And 3 results that are unattached looking for other connections. One of these is in England the other two have New Jersey lines.

Please see more info at my project at FTDNA

And my webpage at

The first 3 groups are unrelated genetically and represent spontaneous development of the surname independently of others.There are two other clusters we still need DNA to represent:

Norfolk Co., England Wedene, Weedene, Weedons
Lancashire Co, England Weetons, Wheetons.
