I have been doing the family genealogy for some years and in some branches of the family can go back to mid 17th century.  The kids got me one of those DNA history test things to see just what our background was.

Historically the English part of me is mainly eastern England from Essex. Norfolk, Yorkshire eventually to Co Durham with a sprinkling of borders Scottish. The other side is Cornwall and Ireland.  The result of the DNA check were a complete let down, no Scandinavian viking or Poldark connections, just British/Irish mongrel through and through. One thing though, I had ancestors that hailed from Staithes near Whitby and lived in the village at the time of James Cook.  That was 89.9% of the DNA history.

There was however 1.1% DNA that was Middle Eastern and from the map it could have been anywhere in that region. Given England's history I would like to think it was connected to someone from Bethlehem, or round about there, or a marauding pirate ravaging the Cornwall coast, or a dusky maiden who one of ancestors had met on crusade, a soldier from Hadrian's wall left behind when the Roman's deserted. 

So many choices, but I will get to the bottom of this mystery and maybe offer to become a peace guru for the Middle East, or join ISIS to free my people.

I had always suspected that you, BCK and Oxfordshire go back to dastardly types who were deported.

My guess is

Noz will have been deported for stealing bread to feed his family
Oxfordshire for inappropriate chasing of wenches
BCK will be something to do with sheep
