    I wonder if Spanish Basque is there because I could have a mixture of Irish and unknown Western Mediterranean. Supposedly I had an ancestor who was Portuguese and from Madeira. But I could be wrong. It could have come about via Gibraltar maybe?

    Might have to get my parents tested to see which side it’s on!

    Could also simply be an extra Neolithic ancestry from South-Western Britain for example that produces this.

    Yeah maybe. One second great grandmother was from Devon.

    I read that Madiera was populated by farmers from Minho, which has a Celtic influence. I think I really need to research a bit more. My mother has given me as much information as she can remember, but I’ve not been able to confirm it yet. It’s one of those stories which has been passed down.

    Edit: Just including the birth counties of my 2nd great grandparents:

    County Mayo, Ireland
    County Mayo, Ireland

    County Mayo, Ireland
    Unknown (likely County Mayo)

    Lancashire, England
    Liverpool, England

    London/Middlesex, England
    Devon, England

    London, England
    Cork, Ireland (English parents)

    Essex, England
