Uridge DNA Project Update April 2008

During the past three months three DNA tests have been received. The results are now available for Robert Gordon Uridge (Chart 6), Owen Fawcett Uridge (Chart 4), and my brother Kelvin Euridge (Chart 1).

Robert is the son of Walter James & Irma Uridge née Bass. He is a descendant of the progenitor John & Rebecca Uridge née Jeff who lived in Buxted, Sussex in the mid 1700s (Chart 6).

Owen is the son of Owen Fawcett Uridge II, who is a descendant of George & Frances Uridge née Lane from Hoo Common, Kent (Chart 4).

Robert and Owen had 34 out 37 matches. This indicates that they have a common ancestor 20-24 generations ago. On the basis of 25 years per generation, this was around 1400 to 1600.

Unfortunately the Euridge DNA did not match, even though the families originated from Kent.

My most sincere thanks to all who participated, and assisted with these tests.

If you are interested in joining this project do contact me, and I will explain the technicalities, costs, and outcome.
