    It sounds like we might see some DNA from this one.
    Paternal Y-DNA: U152>L2>BY3508>L135>BY3506 Estimated age of BY3506: 500BC
    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.

    Quite a few of my ancestors and relatives earned a living from that bay as fishermen (and some lost their lives whilst doing so) so it would be interesting to see any DNA evidence they might get.
