STANTON/STAUNTON DNA TESTING

Welcome to the Stanton/Staunton DNA Testing website

 

OUR GOALS FOR THE DNA PROJECT:

 

 1 To Confirm relationships with a specific ancestor where we have only circumstantial

   evidence.


 2 Compare our surname with those in other states/provinces or countries where we believe

   but have no documentary proof our earliest-known ancestor was born.

 

 3 To Determine whether our line is all European, or mixed with Native American, or 

   Native Australian, etc.

R1a  The R1a lineage is believed to have originated in the Eurasian Steppes north of the Black &

Caspian Seas. This lineage is thought to descend from a population of the Kurgan culture, known

for the domestication of the horse (circa 3000 B.C.E.). These people were also believed to be the

first speakers of the Indo-European language group. This lineage is found in central & western

Asia, India, and in Slavic populations of Europe.

 

R1b1  Haplogroup R1b1 is the most common haplogroup in European populations. It is believed to

have expanded throughout Europe as humans re-colonized after the last glacial maximum 10-12

thousand years ago. This lineage is also the haplogroup containing the Atlantic modal haplotype.

 

 

R1b1c  Haplogroup R1b1c is the most common haplogroup in European populations. It is believed to

have expanded throughout Europe as humans re-colonized after the last glacial maximum 10-12

thousand years ago. This lineage is also the haplogroup containing the Atlantic modal haplotype

FAMILY FACTS

Stantons of Ireland

by John P. DuLong, Ph.D.

dulongj@habitant.org

 

 

Most of the Stantons in Ireland descend from Anglo-Norman invaders from who settled

in Connacht around the start of the thirteenth century and eventually blended into

the predominant surrounding Gaelic culture.  As always, there are exceptions, some

Stantons are latter-day immigrants from England who settled during the Cromwellian

disruptions of the seventeenth century.

 

In Connacht the original name was de Stauriton, de Sdondon, or de Stonndún in

Gaelic which was eventually anglicized as Stanton or Staunton.  Some other

variations include Stainton, Staton, and Staynton.   Many of these Stantons

adopted the Irish surname McEvilly (Mac en Mhilidh, meaning the son of the

knight or warrior) during the Middle Ages as they assimilated to Gaelic culture. 

Although some Stanton descendants still retain the McEvilly surname, by the late

nineteenth century most had reverted back to using Stanton.  Nevertheless, a

prudent genealogist will still search under Stanton and its variations as well as

McEvilly.  Likewise, those interested in genetic genealogy should consider

examining McEvilly as well as Stanton DNA tests.

 

Matheson’s 1890 survey of Irish surnames indicates that 64 percent of the Stantons

resided in Connacht with 24 percent in Munster, 9 percent in Leinster, and 3 percent

in Ulster. Those living in Connacht are mostly found in Co. Mayo while those in

Munster hail from Co. Cork.  An analysis of Griffith’s valuation of Ireland from 1848

to 1864 shows that 38.7 percent of the Stantons lived in Co. Mayo, followed by 16.7

percent in adjacent Co. Galway, 15.5 percent in Co. Cork, and the rest distributed

across Ireland.

 

Many Irish Stantons joined their contemporaries and fled Ireland with the onset of

the great famine in the 1845.  These Stanton immigrants would have preferred to

settle in places in America and Canada where their neighbors and relatives were

already concentrated.  A review of the 1870 federal census at Ancestry.com shows

that most Stantons, Stauntons, and McEvillys born in Ireland lived in New York (32

percent), Pennsylvania (11 percent), Massachusetts (10 percent), Ohio (8 percent),

Illinois (7 percent), and New Jersey (5 percent). 

 

Because of the loss and destruction of so many Irish records, for descendants of Irish

Stantons, relying on Y chromosome DNA testing and cooperating in the Stanton DNA Project

can be an important way to pinpoint the origin of their ancestors back in Ireland and

overcome the lack of records.

Name History and Origin for  Stanton

English: habitational name from any of the extremely numerous places throughout England so called

from Old English stan ‘stone’ + tun ‘enclosure’, ‘settlement’. Most of them are named for their

situation on stony ground, but in the case of Stanton Harcourt in Oxfordshire and Stanton Drew in

Avon the reference is to the proximity of prehistoric stone monuments. The name has also sometimes

been chosen by Ashkenazic Jews as an Americanized form of various like-sounding Jewish surnames.

This surname has long been established in Ireland also. (Dictionary of American Family Names,

Oxford University Press, ISBN 0-19-508137-4)
