Completed as of April 20, 2021:
- Recruiting direct male-line descendants of Samuel Lucas for SNP testing - anyone interested in submitting their DNA for testing should contact Raymond T. Wing (email: wing.genealogist AT gmail DOT com)
Still to do as of April 20, 2021
- NGS/WGS test multiple descendants of Thomas Lucas (and preferably of his son Samuel) to place the family clade as well as test descendants to discover any subclades unique to descendants lines
Samuel Lucas was born Plymouth 15 Sep 1661, son of Thomas Lucas. Samuel died there 17 Jan 1715/6. He married Plymouth 16 Dec 1686 Patience Warren and they had four children (born Plymouth): John (1687/8-1696/7), Joseph (1689), William (1692) and Patience (1696).
Joseph Lucas was born Plymouth 26 Oct 1689 and died Plympton 4 Sep 1742. He married twice, first Plympton 10 Mar 1714/5 Persis Shaw and second Bridgewater 9 Nov 1727 Malathiah Carey. By his first wife he had five children (born Plympton): John (1715), Hannah (1717), Samuel (1719), Barnabas (1721-1726) and Patience (1723/4). By his second wife he had one more child (born Plympton): Barnabas (1729).
William Lucas was born Plymouth 19 Oct 1692 and died there late 1769. He married (int Plymouth 4 May 1722) Mehitable Doty (descendant of Francis Cooke, Edward Doty & Stephen Hopkins) and they had eight children (born Plymouth): William (1723-1734), Phebe (1725), Priscilla (1727), Joseph (1729), Benjamin (1731), Isaac (1733-1743/4), William (1734 prob. dy) and Mehitable (1737/8).
DNA results I2a2a-CTS6433
Previous Y-DNA testing
The Lucas surname DNA Project Group Thomas Lucas-MA has one individual, who has not done any Y-SNP testing, but has tested 67 Y-STRs. FTDNA has predicted his haplogroup as I-M223. Plugging in his STR values into the NevGen Haplogroup Predictor Tools gives a prediction of various subclades under: I2a2a-M223>Z161>L801>CTS6433 with a 35% probability of falling under an unsupported clade.
Further needed testing
We need additional direct male-line descendants of Thomas Lucas (and preferably of his son Samuel) to WGS/NGS test to confirm/refute this prediction and further refine the haplogroup/clade for the family.
