    It may be the case that a founder effect bottlenecked your L-M27 lineage. Punjabi Jatt Sikhs have very small levels of R2a(xL295) (I've estimated this at 1.7% of the Punjabi Jatt Sikh male population) - but the general distribution of R2a(xL295) is consistent with the region occupied by Punjabi Jatt Sikhs, suggesting that it's was existent at the beginning of our ethnogenesis, but must've been bottlenecked at some point before or after said ethnogenesis. L-M27 geographically reaches high levels in the region you're from, so I personally think it's more likely that you have a minority lineage rather than an assimilated one.

    Let me know your thoughts on my guess.

    Nair y-dna is unusually r1a in contrast to the region is what i'm trying to say (also ive only seen one other L Nair). Which is why I suspect my n=1 is assimilated from the region, if thats what you mean

    L1a1 has its highest levels in the Baloch, particularly the Afghan Baloch (likely founder effect)

    The only study ive seen where its high (within the region) is among Syrian Christians but not sure how big the sample size was. R2a and H1a (much higher) would likely be higher if I had to guess

    Data on Malabar coast y-haps specifically is unavailable but there are a couple of images I've seen:

    L (likely L1a1) - peaks in Maharashtra and Karnataka outside a weird circle in Mid-Pakistan according to this image

    Lines up with Konkanasth Brahmin L levels i guess but nothing more to corroborate it - it shows the Malabar coast as low L



    This one from wiki says the Malabar coast is high L but the image credits is 'Own work' and there is no Kerala caste data to corroborate it on the wiki page, not one mention of 'Kerala' or 'Malabar' either

    Other lineages (F*-M89; H2-APT) have higher variance
    patterns in Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh near coastal
    eastern India. Alternatively, the H-M69* and O2a-M95
    HGs display higher variances in northeastern India and
    the West Bengal region, respectively. These two HGs also
    display significant correlations with latitude and longitude, respectively (table 10). Lastly, HG J2b2-M241–
    related microsatellite variance is higher in Uttar Pradesh
    near the border of Nepal. It should be noted that numerous Mesolithic sites have been observed in this region"






    R1a1 at 50% is also a pretty high number - did the Nairs spread R1a1 in the terai (Nanyadev period) or was it the other way around (Gupta period)?
    Are these L657?

    "According to the Vamshavalis of Nepal, after Nanyadeva of Karnataka conquered northern Bihar; he established his capital at Simraungarh. According to an inscription discovered at Simraungarh,4 this event took place in 1019 Shaka era (1097 A.D) ... The verse containing the date in the Simraugarh inscription as published in the Sahitya reads as follows: ''Nanendu-Shunya-Shashi-Sammita-Shakavarshe''. This words, translated into figures, refer to Nanda (9), Indu (1), Shunya (0) and Shashi), or 1019 Shaka ...

    In this inscription of 1124 A.D. and 1127 A.D., Vikramaditya VI claimed to have conquered Anga, Banga, Kalinga, Gaur, Magadha and Nepal. Someshwara III (1128-38 A.D), in one of his inscriptions, claimed that he had placed his feet on the heads of the Kings of Andhra, Dravina, [….] and Nepal. His Minister, Vijjala (1145-67 A.D) claimed to have conquered Banga, Kalinga, Magadh and Nepal. Soma, son of Vijjala, similarly claimed to have conquered Nepal and Kalinga ...

    The authors of the Vamshavalis therefore gave the imaginary story of Nanyadeva having conquered an ruled over Bhadgaun. Similarly, the story that the Nairs of the south came to Nepal along with Nanyadeva was due to the similarity between the terms Nepal or Newar and Nair. The Vamshavalis contain many such fanciful accounts. The truth they contain is meager. It is limited to the fact that Nanyadeva, who belonged to Karnataka in the south, entered into Simraungarh in south Nepal. The rest is more imagination."
    Yes its mostly fanciful speculation from Brahmin accounts (Keralolpathi, Grama Padathi) centuries after the fact - which also justifies Brahmin dominance as it describes Kerala as god-given land retrieved from the sea from Parshuram. The one Bunt sample we have scores most similar to Kurmi and Lambadi (Banjara) on Harappa which could support a UP low caste origin as per texts

    I suspect that the Nambudiris will have a high R1a/R2a ratio of y-haps, we have 0 y results but @vishankar is currently getting a y-analysis done for one of the Nambudiri samples he procured

    Keralolpathi is the history of Tulu people the Bunt (community) and Aryan Brahmins from Ahichatra and not the history of Dravidian people of Kerala who descend from Chera Dynasty. The Naga people (Nairs/Bunt (community) and the Namboothiris originally a subgroup of Tuluva Brahmins) who who might have invaded Kerala at the end of Tamil Chera Dynasty of Villavar people. Keralolpathi describes the history of Nair/Bunt (community)s and Tuluva Brahmins (Namboothiris and Shivalli Brahmins) and their migration from Indo-Nepalese border to Karnataka during the rule of Kadamba King Mayuravarma in 345 AD.Similar accounts are found in Gramapaddati,the records kept by Tulu Brahmins of Karnataka.Keralolpathi claims that a Tulunadu invader brother of Tulunadu king Kavirajasinghan send by Krishnarayar,Krishna III (939 – 967 C.E.) of the the Rashtrakuta Dynasty invaded Kerala with 350000 strong Nair army led by Padamala Nair.

    Gokarnam in the Uttara Kannada district the original homeland of Tulubrahmins after their arrival from Ahichatram is mentioned as a integral part of Kerala.However though Kerala was briefly occupied by various Karnataka rulers only Tamil Chera Dynasty ruled Kerala till 1100 AD and they practised Patrilineal descendency. Matriarchy practised by the Nagas of Karnataka,(Bunt (community)) reached only after the fall of Chera Kingdom. But after the invasion of Malik Kafur in 1310, all the Tamil Patriarchal Tamil dynasties of Kerala were replaced by Tulu dynastes of Bunt (community) who practised Matriarchy and wrote with Tulu Script.

    Incidentally Malayalam script is closer to Tulu script (Tigalari, used before Kannada script was adopted) than to Tamil (which its linguistically related more to)

    Re Haplogroup L - Majus analysis of the Population Differentiation of Southern Indian Male Lineages Correlates with Agricultural Expansions Predating the Caste System. PLoS ONE 2012. mentions Sindh as the centre of differentiation and low L variance in South India, suggesting origins further north

    Haplogroup L is an important South Asian lineage with penetration in West and Central Asia and a center of gravity around Sindh (Pakistan), although it is also very common in West and South India.

    In Tamil Nadu L1a (L1 in the table) is common among nearly all sampled populations with peak among the dry land farmers' class.

    Instead L1c (formerly L3) is relatively rare, peaking among the Scheduled Castes class. No mention is made of any other L.

    Both clades show low variance in the region (0.41 and 0.22 respectively), consistent with their origin being further North.


    Re L657 - not sure, i only have 23andme level y-hap information - i can ask a close relative to get deep y-tested

    Will Morley y-predictor be enough to predict L657? in which case its free

    If you point me to their STRs (if available), I should be able to predict with reasonable accuracy.
