    Thoughts on my interpretation of SNP Data

    My terminal SNP, BY3506 is estimated by YFull to have an age of around 500BC. BY3506 is shared by four people, myself with Irish roots, one with English roots, one of Dutch roots and the fourth with Luxembourg roots. The SNP above BY3506, L135 is shared by people from Ireland, England and all over continental Europe.

    My interpretation of this is that since BY3506 is shared by both British and continental testers BY3506 must have formed on the continent and my male line ancestors making the move to Britain after the formation of BY3506. I would deduce from this that my male line ancestors must have moved to Britain at some point after circa. 500BC (the estimated age of BY3506).

    Does this seem like a reasonable interpretation of the data?

    Most Distant Known Paternal Ancestor: Patrick Dillon, born around 1790 somewhere in Ireland (possibly County Mayo). Some of his descendants later moved to Manchester, England between the 1820s and 30s.

    Yes, but it warrants an alternative theory about back-migration.

    For example, the other day I read something about Irish soldiers of the army Cromwell defeated being allowed to leave Ireland and join foreign armed forces on the continent. Can't remember which ones.

    Yeah, I bump into that strange phenomenon now and then in my genealogy research. It has to do with the Netherlands being an origin for a person with an English surname, or similar situations. I assumed they were in exile for some reason. I noticed recently a "Taylor" was a Cromwell Captain, and his descendants went to Virginia. That seems counter intuitive, as the Cavaliers (vs. Cromwellians) are known to have gone to Virginia. This Taylor was from Suffolk, England. He married a Danish woman from Copenhagen.

    Okay, thanks for the feedback. It sounds like I'm on the right track but just need to be wary of the chance that my ancestors made a back migration to the continent.
