Hornsbys maybe interested to view our particular Hornsby Geneology site at www.hornsby/ca -- search on either to raise.  The Newsletter maybe of interest to ex-England Hornsbys and ex-Herefordshire into Birmingham. 

My just received Hornsby Y-DNA results refer to Haplogroup Rba.   

For periods prior to surnames introduction back through prehistory period my results match surnames of Townshend (5 individuals); Folette (1) and Bickford (1).  All 12 Marker matches.  No 28/37 for these names.  All comparisons seen at at

All Rb/Rb1 at incoming point c970AD with Danes/Vikings?   Consequent surnames take up point post that period.
