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.

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 to get more Y-DNA tests done.

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