Participants' Ancestors

Below are details of the ancestry of participants in the Perry DNA project, grouped into genetic clusters. Everyone in a genetic cluster shares a common male ancestor at some point in time, though the exact relationship may range from father to son, uncle to nephew, or even remote cousins. Please click on the group number below to take you to a detailed pedigree for that group, or scroll down to read details of all families. Please note that this information has been provided by project members and has not been verified by us. We would suggest that if you require further information about a particular family, then you should contact the tester (or his representative). You can find their email address (where available) by clicking on the kit number in the left hand column. Where names are in bold, this shows the direct line of the project participant.

Family group 1 (Daniel Perry of North Carolina Perrys)
All testers in this group have traced their paternal line back to Daniel Perry of North Carolina. Work is ongoing as to his origins.

Family group 2 (Devon Perrys, England)
Some members of this group have traced their line back to the Perry family of London and Devon and it is believed that all members of this group have their origins in south west England. See Jacob Price's 'Perry of London: A Family and a Firm on the Seaborne Frontier, 1615-1753' (Harvard University Press, 1992) for further details. Branches of this family are found in Canada, Ireland and America.

Family group 3 (John Perry of Nansemond County, Virginia Perrys)
all share a genetic profile with John Perry of Nansemond County, Virginia, born ca 1650 and several testers have a proven paper trail back to this individual. He may be the underaged son John named in the 1667 will of Philip Perry of Whitemarsh, Isle of Wight County, but conclusive records have not yet been found to prove this relationship.

Family group 4 (Kilboy/Cahir Perrys from Tipperary, Ireland)
Two of the testers in this group share a common descent from Henry Perry, born ca 1760, who lived in Graystown, near Killenaule in Tipperary, whose descendants lived in nearby Kilboy for many generations. The third tester is a proven descendant of Henry Perry of Tipperary, who is most likely Henry Perry of Cahir (1811-1893). Work is ongoing into finding the common ancestor this group. The family is believed to be connected to the Woodrooff Perry family, but in the female line, as the DNA results to not match that of a proven descendant, kit number 88340 - group 2.

Family group 5 (Another North Carolina Perry family)
Testers in this group have traced their lines back to several man who came from North Carolina, but have yet to trace their common male line ancestor.

Family group 6 (Perry family of Counties Laois and Down, Ireland)
All three testers in this group trace their line back to Ireland: two to John Perry who was born in Kennelly, County Laois (Queen's County), Ireland in 1782 and died in Canada. This is believed to be the same family that produced Thomas Perry, the well-known Dublin violin maker. The third tester takes his ancestry back to County Down. A fourth tester from the Irish Quaker family from Laois matches this family 11/12, which indicates a connection, although the resolution of the test is too low to be sure. The family's origins may be in France and work is ongoing as to this line.

Family group 7 (Hampshire, England Perrys)
The most distant ancestor of any member of this group was born in Hampshire. Some of the family appear to have migrated to Virginia and spread throughout the US.

Family group 8 (Tennessee Perrys)
This group consists of two members, both of whom descend from Littleton Perry of Tennessee. They are fourth cousins.

Family group 9 (Seven Perry brothers)
Members of this group may be related to the 'Seven Perry Brothers' who settled in North Carolina in the 18th century (or direct ancestors of the 7 Brothers). One tester, 180938 has an established paper trail to Burwell Perry and two testers, 108447 and 218165 have established paper trails to Francis Perry. Four other testers are linked to William Perry - 54034, 207836, N84033 and 169184. Francis, Burwell and William are three of the 'Seven Brothers.' The other four 'brothers' are named: Jeremiah Perry, Joshua Perry, Nathaniel Perry and John Perry. A sub-project has been organised for this group - please contact P Yarborough for further details.

Family group 10 (New York/Pennsylvania Perrys)
This group contains two members. One traces his line back to New York and the other to Pennsylvania. No paper connection between the two lines has been found as yet.

Family group 11 (Another Virginia Perry family)
This group contains members whose ancestors come from Spotsylvania County in Virginia. The common ancestor to all of the group's members has not yet been found.

Family group 12 (Perry family of County Armagh, Ireland)
This group contains three members, two of whom have traced their paternal ancestry to the north of Ireland. The family appears to have originated from County Armagh, although the common ancestor to the three testers has not been found. Descendants of this family ended up in the USA (South Caroline and New York) and in Ontario, Canada.

Family group 13 (American Perry family - North Carolina, Indiana and New York)
This group contains three members, whose common male ancestor has not been found. One family lived in North Carolina and the other two in Indiana and New York.

Family group 14 (North Carolina and Tennessee Perrys)
There are two testers in this group, both of which have Perry ancestry in North Carolina and Tennessee.

Family group 15 (New Hampshire, Tennessee, Kentucky and Missouri Perrys)
The common ancestor of the members of this group has not been found.

Family group 16 (Family of Cage Perry)
Only one tester in this group has a documented Perry ancestry, which he traces back to Cage Perry of Tennesee.

Family group 17 (Perrys of Maryland and South Carolina)
There are three testers in this group, one of whom traces his ancestry back to John Perry of Frederick, Maryland (ca 1740-1784), another traces his ancestry back to South Carolina and the third of unknown origins. The common ancestor of the two lines has not yet been found.

Family group 18 (New York Perrys)
There are two matches in this group. The only one that has a documented pedigree traces his line back to a 19th century New York ancestor.

Family group 19 (Perry family of Perrymount, County Down, Ireland)
There are three testers in this group, all of whom descend from James Perry, who was born ca 1669 in northern Ireland. All three descendants come from immigrants to the US.

Family group 20 (John Perry 1725-1789 Chesterfield Co, Virginia)
There are two testers in this group who match one another. One traces his ancestry to John Perry of Chesterfield County, Virginia (1725-1789) and the other has not yet submitted a pedigree.

Family group 21 (Perry family of Seskinore, county Tyrone, Northern Ireland)
This group consists of two members, one who traces his ancestry back to a 17th century northern Irish family whose residence was called Seskinore and the other who has traced his line back to 19th century Kentucky. There are suggestions from secondary sources that the family originated in either Wales or Gloucestershire and work is ongoing to prove or disprove these theories.

Family group 22 (Descendants of Alanson Read Perry, born 1801, Middlesex, Connecticut)
Both testers in this group trace their ancestry back to Alanson Read Perry, who was born in Connecticut and spent most of his life in New York.

Ungrouped testers
These are members of the project that either do not have any genetic matches in the Perry database, or who have tested at a level that does not give reliable results. Some of these members have provided ancestry information and this is recorded here. Where membership to a group is possible, pending an upgrade or further ancestry details, this is noted. Where a tester has provided details of an ancestor of a genetic line that has already been put into a group (and which the tester does not match), this has also been noted. Several members listed here have matches and could be grouped, but gave a nil response to their Ancestral questionnaire and reminders. Please contact us for information.

An O’Kelley/Kelley family genetically related to this Perry family in the male line has been identified. An adoption or other name change event from Perry to O'Kelley occurred not later than 1763. Descendants of the founder of this O'Kelley surname line can be found in Group 2 of the Kelley/Kelly/O'Kelly surname DNA project . More DNA testing and traditional research are needed to pinpoint where/when the surname change took place. This O'Kelley line subsequently produced an African American O'Kelley line in the 1860s. Research on descendants of James Edward O'Kelley and Ellen Matthews can be found at the Black O'Kelley surname DNA project at FTDNA and at the Black O'Kelley website

Because of the genetic link to Group 3 Perrys, this O'Kelley lineage is briefly listed below.
