- Y-SNP tested to
Still to do as of November 10, 2020
- NGS/WGS test additional descendants of Samuel Baker to confirm assignment as well as test descendants to discover any subclades unique to descendants lines

Previous Y-DNA testing
The Baker surname project identifies a small number of descendants of Alexander Baker (supposed father of Samuel). One falls under Haplogroup E, one falls under Haplogroup I, and five fall under Haplogroup R-U106>>BY150757. Samuel has been proven NOT to be a son of Alexander Baker, so it is likely his descendants fall under either Haplogroup E or Haplogroup I.
Further testing of descendants of Kenelm Baker would confirm an assignment and possibly identify subclades linked to descendants.
