Y1-67 DNA RESULTS FOR R-U198 LYNNS, LYNES, LINNS, ETC.

© 2011, 2019 John Sloan and Loretta (Lynn) Layman

   

R-U198 is a haplogroup within the huge R1b super-haplogroup that is ubiquitous in Western Europe.  R-U198 is much less common, generally comprising as little as 2% - 3% of the male population in the countries where
it is most prevalent, such as the United Kingdom. 
R-U198 may in turn be subdivided.  The Lynns belong to R-DF89, which is a significant branch of R-U198.  However, they do not belong to R-DF89's largest sub-group, which we call "type G".  We have therefore used the appropriate modal values for the first line of this chart of DNA results, for comparison with our Lynns.

   

Lynn vs. Flynn:   The lack of R-U198 in Gaelic populations, and particularly its absence among those Flynns who have had Y-DNA tests, together evidence the fact that R-U198 Lynns did not derive their surname from Flynn / O'Flynn.
                             This finding is compatible with the paper trails for certain R-U198 Lynns being Ulster Scots.

Color Key . . .    

        

R-U198 Lynn “Motif” : A motif is a set of marker values which are significantly different from the modal values of the broader group to which a subgroup or family belongs.  Marker values highlighted here in this color represent "typical" R-U198
    Lynn Y-DNA.  There are 7 such markers on this page and 2 on the following page (markers 68-111).

            Other Putative Ancestral Lynn Values (both on this page) :  We believe these may also be the R-U198 Lynn ancestral values at these markers but do not suggest viewing them as part of the Lynn Motif at present.
            1st new line within the R-U198 Lynn family : DYS393 (this page). *

       

2nd new line within the R-U198 Lynn family : CDYa-b and DYS444 (both, this page); DYS540 (next page).

       

3rd new line within the R-U198 Lynn family : DYS534 (this page).

       

4th new line within the R-U198 Lynn family : YCAiia-b (this page).  See also, footnote * below.

 

"Chaff" (i.e., unhelpful sporadic mutations) : Some chaff mutations clearly happened only in recent generations and do not reflect common ancestry.

                       * The word "line" as used here is not meant to imply a direct lineage in the genealogical sense but instead indicates that everyone in a particular new line shares a common ancestor more recently with each other than with those outside their new line.

1/ Brian's DNA testing was done through YSEQ, which examined only  37 DYS out the first 67 (this page) and none in Y68-111 (next page), including only 6 of the 9 DYS in the entire R-U198 Lynn motif.

2/ DYS534 appears to have a Lynn modal value of 14, with M.Ch.'s line and those below him having experienced a back (reverse) mutation to the R-U198 value of 15, although this scenario has yet to be proven.

3/ At YCAiib, Milton's line is believed to have shared the mutation from the R-U198 value of 22 to the value of 21 that is also found in M. Woodward and Jeffrey J., but Milton's line is further believed to have
    reverted sometime more recently from 21 to 22.  While this scenario is not proven by the test results in and of themselves, it is entirely compatible with the known genealogy and the fact that back
    mutations do occur.
  The scenario should be proven, or disproven, if and when additional Y-DNA matches turn up in the family line shared by Milton and M. Woodward.
