The Yarbrough Patriarchs

The goal of the Yarbrough DNA Project is to obtain the participation of as many our extended family members as possible, so that everyone may have a clear, unambiguous understanding of our Yarb*rough heritage. So far, a number of family genetic groups have been identified. It is our belief that as more of our family members are tested, there will be several well-defined family groups.

Anomalies in DNA data will appear from time to time. These may arise from individuals being identified who have surnames other than Yarb*rough; 1) are members of genetic groups other than the early Danish ancestors who settled in eastern England sometime in the ninth century A. D., or 2) whose DNA does not appear to match exactly the DNA of other members because of mutations or other factors. As more individuals are tested, it is expected that these and other questions will resolve themselves.

We invite all members of the extended Yarb*rough families to join the Yarbrough DNA Project and send your pedigree by email directly to Worldfamilies at or the Project Administrator, Leonard Yarbrough, at . The lineage will be added to the project's Patriarchs Page. If you are a Researcher who is not a member of the Surname DNA Project, but wish to share a family pedigree, we ask you to post your pedigree on the applicable Surname Project's Pedigree Forum. Please begin the pedigree with the ID number (if known) and test kit number, followed by the oldest ancestor first and then the subsequent generations. Each entry should be followed by date and place of birth, date and place of death, spouse(s) and date(s)/place of birth and death.

Your participation, both with your test results and with your financial support, is vital to the success of our project. The latter allows us to defray testing costs for selected individuals who are chosen because of their known place in extant genealogical history of our family. We also have an on-going project to definitively link the DNA of an early Yarb*rough ancestor to the appropriate genetic family group.

About the Groupings


The groupings are determined by the genetic markers. Generally speaking, this obtains from sorting the marker data by the genetic haplotype codes (for example, R1a2b1a1a1) taking into account any mutations in a data set. Because, the haplotype determination is based on a statistical analysis, it is not necessarily 100% precise, nor will the haplotype necessarily agree with the family grouping. What is given, then, is a best estimate of family groupings based upon the obtained data samples. Also, as the genetic database grows, there may be subsequent changes to a family grouping.

 Insofar as practicable, the groupings are by the assigned Y-number (these numbers are assigned arbitrarily and are used solely for sorting purposes). Submitter information is included if the submitter gives permission to do so. The test kit number associated with each pedigree is a hot link to the submitter’s test data at (Not all test data is provided by this testing laboratory). Only the submitter can view this data set (although the submitter’s DNA test markers are shown on the y-Results page).

It must be always remembered that DNA matching merely indicates a blood relationship with others who share the same DNA markers. The type of relationship (father, son, uncle, nephew, etc.) requires physical evidence (birth, marriage, military service, death and court records, sworn testimony, etc.) of the relationship.


There are surnames other than the Yarb* surname variations; these reflect the matching of those individuals whose DNA matches that of one or more of the several Yarb* family groups. This may result from an adoption, from someone of Yarb* lineage who has taken another surname for whatever reason(s), or from a “significant irregular paternal event”.

Yarbrough Families  -  DNA NOT TESTED


* “b” = born.

* “d” = died.

* “abt” = about. It means there the precise year is not known.

* “ca” = an abbreviation for “circa” a Latin term meaning about. It implies a calculated date. That is, if a man is 60 years old in the 1850 census, then his birth date is calculated to be 1790 or “ca 1790”. It is not proof that he was born then, but the determination of the date is based on an established record.

* “md” = married.

* “Co” = County.


Lineage 1 - Family Group I [Haplogroup R1b]


There are two documented Yarb* family lines in this group.


Karen Mazock provided the lineage from Thomas Yarborough (born 1685-died after 1761) back to the Immigrate Richard Yarbrough (born 1614).


Richard Yarbrough, b 1615

John Yarbrough, b ca 1645

Thomas Yarborough, b 1685-d aft 1761


Y-chromosome DNA results prove William Yarborough (born 1692- died 1748) is related to Thomas (born 1685), but not how. William and Thomas could be bothers, cousins or an undocumented relationship further back.


The members included in this section that does not have lineages back to Thomas or William are related to this family group.
