Thirkell DNA Testing

I have recently had my DNA tested on the Y-chromosome and have the results for 43 markers. Have any other Thirkell or, name variant, been tested, or is considering being tested, so that we may share results to see if we have a common ancestor.

Hi Phil

Haven't had a DNA test but noticed your descended from County Durham Thirkells.

I have an Ann Thirkell b. 1772 who married Joseph Pearson. Her father was Thomas Thirkell (Thirkeld) b. c.1728 at Staindrop he married Margaret Elgy. His father was Thomas Thirkeld b. 1690 at Staindrop, he married Margaret Stokel. His father was George Thurkell who married an Isabel. Any relation?

I would be interested in any information you have on Thirkell's at Stainton or Eggleston in Co. Durham. I am descended from George & Ann Thirkell at Stainton (in 1841 Census).

I also see that you mention a Margaret Stokel marrying a Thirkell!!!! My mothers maiden name is Thirkell and she married a Soakell (many variants of spelling of surname). I am interested in both these names and have been researching both of these families history.

Hi All
I have jsut started some research for a friend and also traced back to George and Isabel. It looks like George's father was Thomas b1622 who married Margaret Liddle (Liddell b1619 Brancepeth and if so leads to published pedigrees back to Thomas LIddell 1515-1615 or 1619 depending on sources, whose son THomas and descendents were Baronets in Newcastle on Tyne area. I have just posted the tree on my site even though it does not relate to my family
