Grand Father Of Everyone is Living in Britain!
By the result obtained it can be sated,utmost, that the ancestors of Mr.Ian Kinnaird, 72,who lives in Britain,were from a West AfricanVillage.
The earliest trace that has been established in the result is the fact the ancestor was from West Africa.
But how do you name her as Eve?
Or is n new campaign of establishing English Superiority?
If we accept Eve as the first woman, by logic all of us are her grandchildren, not merely the Britons.
“The Britons (sometimes Brythons or British) were the Celtic people culturally dominating Great Britain from the Iron Age until the Early Middle Ages.They spoke the Insular Celtic language known as British or Brythonic. They lived throughout Britain south of about the Firth of Forth; after the 5th century Britons also migrated to continental Europe, where they established the settlements of Brittany in France and the obscure Britonia in what is now Galicia, Spain. Their relationship to the Picts north of the Forth has been the subject of much discussion, though most scholars accept that thePictish language during this time was a Brythonic language related to, but perhaps distinct from, British.
The earliest evidence for the Britons and their language in historical sources dates to the Iron Age. After the Roman conquest of 43 AD, a Romano-British culture began to emerge. With the advent of the Anglo-Saxon settlement in the 5th century, however, the culture and language of the Britons began to fragment. By the 11th century their descendants had split into distinct groups, and are generally discussed separately as the Welsh, Cornish,Bretons, and the people of the Hen Ogledd (“Old North”). The British language developed into the distinct branches of Welsh, Cornish, Breton, andCumbric.“
- Ian Kinnaird, 72, discovered he is effectively the ‘grandfather of everyone in Britain’ after he paid £200 to take the test to trace his ancestry
- Results showed that Mr Kinnaird, has a genetic marker, L1B1, that can be followed back all the way to an ancient African lineage
- The complete test results suggest 32% of British men are descended from the original Britons, 12% from ancient Germanic lines, 11% are hunter gatherers and 7% are ancient Irish.
A DNA test on a Scottish pensioner has revealed he is a direct descendent of the first ever woman who lived on Earth 190,000 years ago.
Ian Kinnaird, 72, discovered he is effectively the ‘grandfather of everyone in Britain’ after he paid £200 to take the test to trace his ancestry.
Britain’s DNA, the research team who carried out the test, said the result means that Mr Kinnaird is ‘the grandson of Eve’ – the very first woman.
The test results showed that Mr Kinnaird, a retired lecturer who lives in Halkirk near John O’Groats, has a genetic marker, L1B1, that can be followed back all the way to an ancient African lineage that has never before been found in Western Europe.
He has mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) which is passed through the female side is 30,000 years old and only two genetic mutations removed from the first ‘black Eve’.
Most men, the researchers say, have genes that have incurred around 200 mutations from the earliest humans.
Mr Kinnaird also found that the YDNA marker on the male side of his genetic make-up is Scandinavian and he carries the same genes that is found in a quarter of all Norwegian men.
He said: ‘I have led an unremarkable life until now.
‘This is a real gobsmacker. I seem to carry a gene from West Africa that arrived through the slave trade.
‘I have been researching the links between the slave trade and Liverpool, the area where the female side of my family came from.
‘Africa was part of my geography degree at Hull University in 1959, but i couldn’t have imagined anything like this.
The same L1B1 gene is also carried his 65-year-old sister, Jean.
Alistair Moffat, St Andrews University’s rector and historian, and James Wilson, a geneticist from Edinburgh University, were responsible for setting up the national study and uncovering the startling results of Mr Kinnaird.
Mr Moffat said: ‘It is an astonishing result and means he could have been in the ‘Garden of Eden’.
‘It is further proof that even white Anglo-Saxon Protestants are descended from a black Eve.
‘This lineage appears in Africa, in Senegal, but has never been seen in north-west Europe.
‘It is likely to have reached Britain through the arrival of slaves in Liverpool.
‘A woman who might be called Eve and a man who might be called Adam really existed.
‘Eve, the mother of us all, lived around 190,000 thousand years ago just as homo sapiens were evolving. Other women lived at the same time but only Eve’s mtDNA survived.
‘Adam also lived in central Africa, perhaps only around 140,000 years ago. Only his YDNA survived to father all of the male lineages on earth.
‘Mr Kinnaird cannot pass on his mtDNA but his sister could and she had a daughter who will carry the lineage.’
The aim behind Britain’s DNA is to try and make a ‘family tree of Britain’.
The nationwide study that has examined the DNA of 2,000 people from all over the UK has found that most participants’ genetic markers date back around 3,500 years ago to the days of the earliest Britons, Vikings and even cave painters and hunter gatherers.
The complete test results suggest 32 per cent of British men are descended from the original Britons, 12 per cent from ancient Germanic lines, 11 per cent are hunter gatherers and 7 per cent are ancient Irish.
