DNA analyses have been done on five family members, for myself with AncestryDNA and MyHeritage, and for daughter Louise Simon, son Nicholas Jefferies and nieces Melissa Clark & Elinor Nash, with AncestryDNA.

The other close family test I know of is on my 1st cousin Elaine Mathieson, nee Galton, on Ancestry.  While her tree is private her matches are useful in confirming matches are from my mother's family.

In addition I have done a Y-DNA test with Family Tree DNA.  It identifies me in the R-M269 Haplogroup. No matches to persons with Jefferies surnames have been found so far.  Discussions with other known Jefferies males descended from Jonathon Jefferies 1782-1858 are in hand with the objective of having more Y-DNA tests done.

Anyone with queries about possible DNA matches to me or to the other members of the family are welcome.
