Y68-111 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 2 such markers on this page and 7 on the previous page (markers 1-67).

          Other Putative Ancestral Lynn Values (all on the previous 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.1/
 

1st new line within the R-U198 Lynn family : DYS393 (previous page).2/

       

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

       

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

       

4th new line within the R-U198 Lynn family : YCAiia-b (previous page); see also, footnote 3/ to the chart on that page.

 

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

1/ CDYa and CDYb do appear to suggest a progressive mutation from the broader haplogroup value to a slightly lower value for the original R-U198 Lynn ancestor and thence to an even lower value in the 2nd new line.
     DYS534 may represent an R-U198 Lynn  value with the 3rd new line having experienced a back mutation to the broader haplogroup value.

2/ 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 (previous page) and none in Y68-111 (this page), including only 6 of the 9 DYS in the entire R-U198 Lynn motif (all 6 on the previous page).
