       Family Groups and Lineages of the Britton DNA Project      


There are an undetermined number of Britton families living in the world today.  

Although all of these families share a form of the same surname, each  descends from a different patriarch with a unique Y-DNA signature which has been passed from father to son with little change from one generation to the next.  For this reason, Britton men from the same male line will show similar DNA results when tested, while those from other lines will not.  Britton men from different male lines are usually said to be unrelated  because they do not share a common ancestor who lived within a genealogical or historical time period.


The majority of these Britton families belong to the Celtic  Haplogroup R1b, but several are of Germanic or Norse origin (Haplogroups I1 and R1a) and are presumed to have arrived in Britain from Scandinavia or Jutland during the Dark Ages between c 400AD and the Norman Conquest.   Other Haplogroups represented in the project include  E1b1b1b2, which is the third most common Haplogroup in Europe,  although it is only sparsely represented in the British Isles, and Haplogroup G, which  occurs at  low frequencies in Britain and is more often found in Wales than in other areas.

Our project’s database is drawn from these sources:


1. Britton International DNA Project at Family Tree DNA/World Families Network

2. Family Tree’s Database at Y-search

3. Ancestry DNA database

4. Oxford Ancestry


The following lineages have either been tested by the Britton International DNA Project or have entered DNA results and pedigrees in one of the online databases listed above.


Please note that the Britton DNA project is no longer posting pedigrees for men who have not yet been tested.





Please use this link for the database at Family Tree DNA:







This database includes men tested by Ancestry, Oxford Ancestors, and other testing companies. Each participant has been assigned a special code consisting of a letter or letters followed by a number, thus enabling researchers to match pedigrees on this page with DNA results on the Y-results page.  A indicates test results from Ancestry, B from Family Tree, SMGF from Sorenson Molecular Genealogy Foundation, DNAH from DNAHeritage (purchased by Family Tree in 2011), and OA from Oxford Ancestors.   A code consisting of five letters and/or numbers represents data gathered from Y-Search.  Kit numbers are also included for members tested by Family Tree.




Family Group 1: –Haplogroup I1-L1275:

John Britton bc 1672/3, probably in the London area, is the earliest known progenitor of this family.  Although born in England, John was living in Henrico Co., VA by 1684, was married before c 1700, and had several sons:  William b by 1701 d Chesterfield Co., VA 1770 ; John b before April, 1705, d before August 1786, Henrico Co., VA (no male issue); James b by c 1711, d 1798, Henrico Co., VA.

Family Group 2: Haplogroup I1—L22 subgroup: This Britton Family which is first found in southside Virginia is said by tradition to descend from Henry Britton who came either from northern VA or MD.  We know that George Britton Sr and John Britton (believed to be brothers) were living in southside VA counties (Halifax, Mechlenburg, etc) by the late 18th century and that both men left VA and settled in Georgia around the turn of the century.  Records for Lunenburg Co., VA from the 1750’s mention a Henry Britton, but we have found nothing so far to connect him to George Sr. or John Britton.

(1) Descent inferred from will, burial to be at Caston, date and Kelston property.

(2) Birth date from IGI, J. Goulstone has later date.

(3) Burnett history gives late father of Corston, minor son implied, probable error in IGI/Goulstone birth attribution.

(4) No birth record at Kingsdon but father's burial about then and Samuel probably renamed for him.  Mother buried at Butleigh.

(5) Birth probably before and baptism 4 mo. after parents’ marriage; middle name Smith probably from grandmother

FAMILY GROUP 5: Britton of Batcombe, SOMERSET--Haplogroup R-L20 subgroup.  Several members of Group 5B trace desent from  Richard Britton of Batcombe, Somerset, bc 1585 whose sons Nathaniel and William settled on Staten Island New York while son Cananuel settled in Chester Co., PA.


Group 5 divides into two subgroups based on results for DYS 388. Several members of 5A trace descent from James Britton bc 1704, who moved from Chester CO, PA to Orange Co, VA in the 1730’s and from VA to Rowan Co, NC in 1754.  All members of 5A have a value of 11 at DYS 388, whereas members of 5B have the modal value of 12.  No one in 5B appears to descend from James Britton. 


The common ancestor of subgroups 5A and 5B has not been identified.
