YDNA

YDNA data was extracted from the WorldFamilies Edmondson Project on November 21 2011. A total of 34 Kits had been processed at this time, of which 14 provided useful lineage information. The remaining 20 kits either provided no or negligible lineage information, or gave a different surname indicating a suspected non-paternal event (6 kits).

Haplogroups

Kits in the Edmondson Surname Project were characterized as belonging to four different haplogroups:

*Assigned to a group

Groups

The groupings given in this project appeared to be well done. That is, the kits in each identified group do indeed appear to share a relatively recent common ancestor based on similar YDNA signatures. Kits were organized into nine groups, members of which groups are presumed to share a relatively recent common ancestor. These groups were identified by haplotype, and further designated as "Lineage I", "Lineage II", etc. An additional 12 kits were designated as "not assigned". A review of the YDNA signatures for these kits, based on a Similarity Index analysis, showed that they did not in fact match well with any of the existing groups. There was evidence that some of these nine kits matched each other.

Tapestry

Lineage data for the Edmondson Surname project is provided in both the standard FTDNA project page, and the WorldFamily Project page. While the lineage data provided is sparse, at least three Groups can be identified which trace to ancestors present in one area or another within the Tapestry area.

Haplogroup R1b-Lineage IIIIrish Hammer205576Kit 28763 gives descent from William "Irish Hammer" Edmondson, a Quaker minister who died in Ireland in 1712. A descendant, William Edmondson, b 1682 Ireland, is said to have died in Chester PA in 1736, but some place his in the Cecil County, MD portion of Old Chester and related members of this family are said to have lived in Talbot County MD. It is not clear that this line was actually in Old Chester. Additional work is needed.
