Introduction

DNA Testing is administered by Julia French Wood. For any questions regarding DNA, please email Julia at juliaFWood@aol.com. Only a male with the surname French can take this test. It is a simple test that doesn’t involve blood. A kit is delivered to your house for you to take the cheek swab test and the tip is injected into the tiny test tubes to be returned to the lab in a padded envelop that they provide for you. After your test is completed in about 4 weeks, you will be notified and can log in to your personal page to view your DNA matches. Julia French Wood suggests the 37-marker test (Y-DNA37).

DNA is pure Science. The DNA is passed from father to son, to son, forever.  The only time a male from the line doesn't match the group is if he or if any of his direct male ancestors were adopted or had a father other than French.

136.  A3137, Wiggin, African ancestor. Could this be Mason French, b. 1831, m. Mary Wiggins on 14 Jun 1855 in Bracken, KY?

137.  96136, Chart #20, Thomas ffrench, the Quaker, b. 1611, Nether Heyford, Northampton, England, d. 1673 in New Jersey. This is a large family in New Jersey who do not match with DNA Group 1. We still haven't proven that this Burlington, NJ French line doesn't match the other NJ Frenches of DNA Test Group 1. The one male who tested in that line has exact matches with another surname. Until he matches another French, we can't be sure that his DNA represents the Burlington French line.

153.  352767, Philip Lynch, 1830, Ireland.

154.  289325, William French, b. 1814, d. 1900.

155.  208021, Chart #IREH, Robert ffrench, the first person tested from the Monivea, Galway, Ireland tribe of the 16th century and his son Patrick Begg ffrench. His son was Robert ffrench who married in 1672 and had only one son, Patrick, b. 1677. He had son Robert, who m. Nichola Acheson in 1746, and they had son Acheson ffrench who had son Robert, b. 1 Jan 1776, m. 1 Jan 1799 Nichola-Maria O’Brien, the eldest daughter of Sir Lucius O’Brien. Because the ffrench and O’Brien family had equal prestige, the descendants used the surname O’Brien-ffrench. With the next generation, the family began to move to other parts of the world. Son Robert, b. 6 Dec 1799 remained in Ireland, but his brother Acheson migrated to Hamilton, Australia, where their families remained until the 20th century when descendants moved to Canada and America. Ian Fleming wrote about the life of Conrad O’Brien-ffrench in his true-life tales about James Bond 007. No French matches yet; however, his closest matches with other surnames are from all over the British Isles and Europe with the highest average of .5% from both England and Germany.  Testee John ffrench.

156.  212692, Ebenezer French, m. Abigail, d. Montgomery County, NY. He may have been born before 1780 and lived in Mohawk or Florida or Amsterdam, Montgomery Co., NY. He is listed in the 1790 census living in Mohawk, Montgomery Co., NY, with 4 people in his household. In the 1800 census, he is living in Florida, Montgomery Co., NY, with 5 people in his household; he was over the age of 45; therefore, born before 1755. One of his descendants was King Rex of the New Orleans Mardi Gras. See http://www.frenchfamilyassoc.com/FFA/FAMOUSFRENCHES/RonaldFrench.htm.

157.  278395, Albert Jack Louis French, b. 1866, d. 1924.

159.  333739, Thomas French, b. 1584 in England, d. 1639.

160.  33791, Albert French, 1814, VA. This may be the Albert French who lived at Port Royal, Caroline Co., VA in the 1870 census which says he was b. 1814 in VA, married to Mary A. French, and had children Isabella, Sallie, Henrietta, Albert, and Elizabeth. His race is black.

161.  218557, Martin French, 1691-1732, m. Mary Browne in Maryland; Ignatius French, 1705-1771 residing in Nelson Co., KY, m. Susannah Brown; Martin French 1735-1786 in Baltimore, MD, m. Priscilla Anderson; Dominick French, 1770, m. Mary Shillingsburgh; William French 1797-1860, m. Nancy Tidings in Baltimore, MD; George W. French, m. Mary A. Green; John Alexanader French, bm. Ella Jane Foster; George Nelson French, m. Edna May Wight; John Nelson French, m. Regina G. Sadler; Wayne L. French, in Baltimore, MD. The research done by this testee shows that his line is Chart #137; however, the test results do not match with that group, namely, DNA Test Group 7. There may have been an adoption in this line, or the research is done incorrectly. Also see http://trees.ancestry.com/tree/8731469/family/familyview. So far he is the only French with these markers; perhaps he or another male in his line was adopted, as the names are mostly Eastern European and could have been changed to French along the way.
