'Stewart' Y-DNA Case Study added to English Origenes
It is more challenging to pinpoint one's English Paternal Ancestral Genetic Homeland. This is mainly due to historical and cultural factors. However, one big advantage with English surnames is that many are locational in nature, detailing as it where, the hamlet, village or town where one's paternal ancestors lived. Mr Stewart's genetically recurring surnames as revealed in his Y-DNA test results pinpointed a paternal ancestral origin just west of Wigan town in Lancashire. The source of his Y chromosome may in fact be the Lancastrian Lathoms or Lathams who appear as his closest recurring genetic match, and his association with the Stewart surname may therefore be the result of a non-paternal event (adoption, infidelity that has occurred at some point in his paternal ancestral past). However there are a small number of Stewart farmers recorded in early census data within Lancashire and the lack of genetic matches to other Stewarts may simply be that other 'rarer' English Stewarts with whom he shares common paternal ancestry have yet to Y-DNA test.
