    Small matches aren't always necessarily false matches?

    I have an 111-10 match to someone with Carthew ancestry . Both my Big Y matches have Carthew ancestors.

    The 111-10 match has just replied to an email I sent him a little while ago. He mentions a William Carthew bapt 26 Apr 1687 St Allen Cornwall .
    He also mentions a Polkinghorne ancestor.

    Being curious I checked for those surnames in my Ancestry DNA matches . One a 7 cM-1 segment match has both those surnames including


    William Carthew
    1687–1740
    Birth 26 APR1687 • St Allen Cornwall, England
    Death 30 OCT 1740 • Illogan Cornwall
