What can you all tell me about I-BY40607?

Here is its pedigree as supplied by Genetic Homeland:

M253>DF29>S243>BY151>L849>S2078>S2077>Y6375>Y6384.1>Y13945>BY40787>BY40607.

It's the current terminal SNP of a distant cousin on the y-chromosome line of one of my third great grandfathers, Abner Standish Washburn, who was born 12 August 1802 in Randolph, Orange Co., Vermont.

Any ancient dna finds on that phylogenetic pathway?

Thanks for whatever you can tell me.

Not really sure, but all I can find is the upstream Y13945.

YFull: https://www.yfull.com/tree/I-Y13945/

Seems to have mostly British or British diaspora representation. Two samples from SW England (Cornwall & Gloucestershire).

You might try taking a look on FT’s open source tree:

You can also try searching for it on your own Block Tree. It looks like it’s (5) members are all English. It also looks like the open source tree has not caught up to the Block Tree.

Thanks for the info. The Washburns are definitely English. I was wondering whether that y line was Anglo-Saxon or Viking.

Any noteworthy ancient dna results anywhere along that phylogenetic pedigree?

None that I know of but you can check further here:

Compliments of our colleague Deadly77


I suspect it’s probably Germanic.

I come by my Washburn heritage via a second great grandmother on my father’s side, Olive Augusta Washburn, the wife of my second great grandfather, James Holmes Stevens. Her father was the third great grandfather I mentioned earlier, Abner Standish Washburn.

The Washburns are an old New England Puritan family. The Standish that is Abner’s middle name comes from his mother, Olive Standish, a descendant of Miles Standish of Mayflower fame.

Probably not enough information to determine whether it is Norse or Anglo-Saxon. That's sort of the issue with most Isles I1 that isn't in obviously Scandinavian influenced areas (Hebrides, Orkney, Shetland, etc).
