According to Betham's Sketch Pedigrees, William Chambers and his son Roger Chambers split off from the Kilboyne Chambers in County Mayo. They settled in Cloverhill House in the mid-1700"s. It's located in Kilmacowen (Kilmacoen) near Sligo. Roger had seven children and it looks like succeeding generations also had many children. The family (descendants of first-born sons) can be found as late as the 1911 census in Kilmacowen. Cloverhill House no longer exists but a photo of it can be found in NUI Galway Landed Estates.
I am trying to prove that the Kilboyne House Chambers are not the main ancestors of the Chambers of County Mayo. My R1a-yDNA supports the theory that we came into Ireland as Redshanks from Macdonald lands. At the extremely rare yp1420 level, I have a match with a MacDonald. The final level below that, BY30235, has one match, Norwegian. Most of my matches, are Norwegian. So far, all the Chambers of County Mayo who have tested match me.
The Kilboyne House Chambers descend from the Hertfordshire Chambers. So far, one Hertfordshire test of a descendant of gentry came out as U106, a typical Anglo-Saxon, Northern German or Danish Haplotype.
I'm looking for a male Chambers descendant of the Chambers of Cloverhill, Kilmacowen, County Sligo who has taken a yDNA test so I can finish my research once and for all. I figure that there should be a minimum of 1000 living male descendants.

Thank you,
Tim Chambers

Hi Tim,
Did you already join the FTDNA Chambers Project?

I assume you did, if not maybe they could help?

Tim here again
I got a yDNA test done on a descendant of Roger Chambers of Sligo. It turned out to be totally Celtic. In fact he was one of the plethora descendants of the Ur Niall, high King of Ireland. That was totally unexpected and I believe that there was a "non-paternal" event in the lineage.
