Completed as of February 28, 2021:
- Recruiting additional direct male-line Christopher Webb descendants for NGS/WGS 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 February 28, 2021
- NGS/WGS test multiple Webb descendants to firmly place family clade as well as discover any subclades unique to descendants lines

DNA results R1b-L21
Previous Y-DNA testing
The Webb Surname DNA Project Group: Christopher Webb (grandfather of Peter & Christopher) currently lists seven close STR matches, all claiming Christopher as their most distant known patrilineal (all male line) ancestor (MDKPA). None of them have done any Y-SNP tested and all are predicted (by FTDNA) to fall under R1b-M269. Two of the individuals have done Y-67 STR testing. Plugging in the STR values into the Nevgen Haplogroup prediction tool gives a very low prediction of the family falling somewhere under R1b-L21. Other subclades of R1b-P312 are also predicted with extremely low probability. The tool predicted a 75% chance of the result falling under an "unsupported clade."
Further needed testing
We need direct male-line Webb descendants to WGS/NGS test to confirm and further refine the haplogroup placement.
- In addition, a fairly close STR match to this family has taken the Big Y-700 test and been found to fall under R-L21>S552>DF13>ZZ10_1>Z253>Z2534>ZZ5_1>A16>BY10>FGC53827 so it is quite likely the Webb family falls somewhere in this line of successive clades.
