Lanes With Closely Matching Y-DNA Results
Belonging to a Special Subclade of Haplogroup R1a

The Lane DNA R1a(10) Group consists of Lane DNA testees whose closely matching test results indicate that they descend from a common Lane ancestor within a genealogical time frame—a time frame within the last 500 up to 1000 years since the adoption of surnames and written family records [ISOGG Glossary].  The Lane families in this group all seem to have arrived in colonial America in the 17th or 18th century and all seem to be of English origin.  The haplotypes for this group of Lanes—a haplotype is simply the entire set of DNA test results for a particular person—indicate that they belong to Y-DNA haplogroup R1a which is rather uncommon in the English population.  A Y-DNA haplogroup is a population group that originated thousands of years ago and is identified by certain differences (polymorphisms) on the Y-chromosome (see Understanding Haplogroups for a more detailed explanation of Y-DNA haplogroups).  Besides belonging to the Y-DNA haplogroup R1a, they belong to a specific subgroup (or subclade) of R1a that is characterized by an allele value of 10 at Y-DNA marker DYS388.  For a discussion of this particular subclade of R1a, see the "R1a in England" thread from the Genealogy-DNA email list.  There seems to be some association of this subclade with southwest England.  One of the members of this Lane group indicates a Lane ancestry going back to Dorset in southwest England.

All of the Lanes in this group have tested through the Lane Y-Chromosome DNA Surname Project at Family Tree DNA.  One testee (L001) descends from the Lanes of Craven County, North Carolina.  These Lanes appear in Craven County in the early-to-mid 18th century and their origin is uncertain.  The other three testees descend from Lanes who immigrated to New England, apparently at different times in the 17th and 18th centuries.  The only thing that connects these four Lane families at this time is the closely matching DNA results.  We need more Lanes from these and other Lane families to do the testing so we can better understand their connections.  So, I would urge anyone who is interested in this group of Lanes and is either a Lane direct male line descendant (i.e., a male with the last name Lane) or knows of one in their family to see the join section below for more information on joining the Lane project and getting tested.

DNA Test Results

Below is a table showing the Y-DNA test results for members of the Lane DNA R1a(10) Group.  The Lane DNA R1a(10) Group Modal in the first row (yellow) is the modal haplotype for this group of Lanes.  This modal haplotype is the likely haplotype of the common ancestor of these Lanes.  The last row contains the modal haplotype for all people of all surnames that have been tested that belong to haplogroup R1a and have the special marker result of DYS388=10.

In the results table below, each group member's assigned ID is in the first column.  In the Earliest Known Lane Ancestor and Descendancy column is the name of each linegage's earliest known Lane ancestor (if known) and descendancy info for each member from that ancestor.  The estimated (or Y-SNP determined) haplogroup of the member is in the next column followed by all of the member's marker results (see below for marker color codings).  If a marker field contains a p, it means that testing has been ordered for that marker and results are pending.  After all the marker results, the Member ID and Earliest Known Lane Ancestor and Descendancy columns are repeated followed by the general migration pattern for the member's line.  Next, the Haplogroup column is repeated and then there is a column showing any Y-SNP results for the member that verify the haplogroup assignment.  This is followed by the company that performed the testing and the kit number or other identifier for the test.  Next are the IDs and links to any online databases where the member's results are also posted.  Finally, the contact information, if available, for the member is listed.

Analysis of Test Results
Lane DNA R1a(10) Group

The results for this group of Lanes indicate that L002, L003, and L004 are more closely related to each other than to L001.  This means that they probably have a common Lane ancestor who lived not as far back in time as the common Lane ancestor they share with L001.  As more Lanes from related Lane families are tested, we will be better able to gauge how far back the common ancestor may have lived.

Join the Lane Y-Chromosome DNA Project

If you are a Lane male, or have any Lane males in your extended family, and are connected, or think that you may be connected, to any of these Lane families listed above, I want to encourage you to join the LANE Y-Chromosome DNA Surname Project and do the testing and verify your connection to this unique group of Lanes.  Our goal is to uncover the details on the connections among these various Lane lines and to possibly discover the identity of the common Lane ancestor.  We may even uncover clues to the deeper origins of these Lanes in England.  To get Family Tree DNA's special surname project pricing, use the Lane project's order page to order your test kit.  I recommend getting at minimum the 25-marker test, and preferably the 37-marker or 67-marker test.  The more markers you get, the better the quality of the matching and analysis.  If you happen to be a descendant of the Lanes of Craven County, North Carolina, contact me for possible help with testing costs.  Testing is done via a cheek swab kit that is mailed to you which you complete and mail back.  The testing is done in the "junk" DNA portion of the male Y-chromosome and therefore does not reveal anything regarding possible medical conditions or phyisical traits.  For more information about genetic genealogy and DNA testing visit the Family Tree DNA Tutorials page.  I also have a Basics of DNA page at the Woodruff DNA Project web site.
