Cartmel/Cartmill/Cartmall/Cart*l/Cartm*ll DNA Web Site (New)

Project Background:

The primary purpose of DNA testing male descendants is to align the descendants of Nathaniel, Henry, and John Cartmill/Cartmell into their proper order. All three of these circa 1700 ancestors settled in the same area, and migrated westward in similar patterns. The result has been some confusion about which line each family group belongs to that cannot be resolved with available written records.
It has been determined by professional researchers that the Cartmill/Cartmell/Cartmel surname is most unique, and has its roots in the Village of Cartmel, in the Lake District of England. This village was established in the 12th Century, and migration from the village can be established as early as the 14th Century to Ireland and other parts of England. Given the relatively small number of living descendants bearing the surname and its variants, it may be possible to determine the very earliest ancestors through DNA tests.

If you have any marriage documentation for Thomas Cartmill and Mary Warwick; please notify Paula at; however we don't feel one will ever be found. After reading the interview of David Crouch; see this link David Crouch Interview; one has to come to the conclusion that people living in these obscure parts of the woods were most often married by the squire for ceremonial purposes and records weren't kept. Also one will note by David Crouch's interview; he very rarely ever saw a preacher in his life time.
