We received Thomas’s DNA test results back yesterday. These we supposed to confirm if the Charles Willingale branch was distinct from the other Willingale branches; William our original tester from this branch has very different DNA to mine & Peter’s DNA. We therefore needed Thomas’s DNA to confirm if Williams DNA difference was the result of a ‘non paternity event’ or not. William and Thomas are 3rd Cousins, once removed.

Unfortunately Thomas’s results are very different to Williams and also very different to mine & Peters! The latest DNA results grid can be found here and more details are available to members here.

We are now awaiting Owen’s results, due some time in September, which will hopefully allows us to confirm the DNA profile for the Thomas, John, William and Samuel branches of the Willingale family.
