Jewett Family of America

Who was Edward Jowett and what was his origin?

The Jewett DNA Project

yDNA is passed from father to son (not daughters) unchanged through the generations. Mutations may occur over time that can help to identify branches of families. During 2006 five "sons" of Edward Jowett through his sons Maximilian and Joseph submitted DNA samples for testing and confirmed that we all share a common ancestor. We all match each other but so far we haven't had close matches outside of the "family".

What we can tell right now is that Edward's paternal yDNA deep ancestry was most likely Norman or Saxon, probably not Celtic and not Viking. His Norman or Saxon forefathers probably migrated from the Iberian penninsula sometime after the last ice age.

yDNA test results from FamilyTreeDNA of five male descendants of Edward Jowett (1580 - 1614) of Bradford, West Riding, Yorkshire

through his sons Maximilian Jewett (1607 - 1684) and Joseph Jewett (1609 - 1660)

who migrated to Massachusetts in 1638/9
