Your matches and ancestral origins largely depend on how your DNA compares to our database. With the largest DNA database in the world, you have the greatest chance of finding close relatives by testing with us. However, if your paternal line is rare, it is possible you will not have matches or ancestral origins information right away. As our database is constantly growing, you may have matches over time, and we will send you e-mail notifications about any new matches.

Once you have your Haplogroup Result, scroll down to see which SNPs to test, to discover your Haplogroup Branch on the Haplotree.

It's early days, but there are at least ELEVEN different Hartley surname lineages.

Results of Y-DNA tests show that most HARTLEYs are Haplogroups R1b-R1b1-R1b1b2 the most common male haplogroups in Britain and Ireland, mostly brought to the Isles by Atlantic peoples, over several thousands of years [see Origins of the Name page].

R1b map In England and Scotland, about 70%-80% of people have Haplogroups R1b-R1b1-R1b1b2 Y-DNA; in Ireland and Wales it's at least 80%.

Several results are subclade R1b1b2 - Italo-Celto-Anatolian: The Aurignacian culture, an archaeological culture of the Upper Palaeolithic, located in Europe and southwest Asia. It began about 40,000 to 36,000 years ago, and lasted until about 28,000 to 26,000 years ago. R1b1b2 is thought to have originated in Central Asia/South Central Siberia.

Y-DNA is only passed on from father to son and is little changed over thousands of years.

None of the HARTLEY R1b-R1b1-R1b1b2 results below are close enough a match to one another to indicate a common ancestor within the past 10 000 years.
In other words, HARTLEYs might bear the same family surname, but outside of their extended family, are unlikely to be related to one-another. They weren't descended from one person, say for instance, a 'John Hartley' who lived 5 000 years ago. The surname is just an adopted name; it doesn't show there's any family relationship to other HARTLEYs nearby, nor around Britain and Ireland, or around the world.

hartleyfamilyorguk believes the place name 'HARTLEY' was derived from the Germanic place name, HEORT-LEA
So in this instance, the origins of the surname HARTLEY are most likely of local or toponymic origin
that is, derived from the name of the place of residence of the initial bearer of that line. That means the surname derives from the place-name HARTLEY that is found in a number of English counties including Cumbria, Lancashire, Northumberland, Yorkshire, Staffordshire, Berkshire, Hampshire, Devon, Dorset and Kent.

In other words, 'John' lived at 'Hartley' village, therefore he became 'John of Hartley', eventually 'John Hartley'. His extended family is not necessarily related to other HARTLEY families, not even one's in the same area, not even in the same village.

HEORT-LEA was brought to Britain after the Last Great Ice Age by early Germanic tribes. The name was already established as a place name in Britain before the Normans arrived in the 11thC and before most people adopted a surname. [see Place Name]

Over many centuries, and in particular after the 5thC, Anglo-Saxons came from Germania [Saxony and Scandinavia]; they mainly comprised of Jutes, Angles, Frisians, Rugians, Saxons, Huns and Boructuari. The Anglo-Saxon tribes would have worshipped at the site of a Temple, Shrine or Well named after the Mother Earth Goddess, HEORTHA [HERTHA]. There would have been Temples, Shrines and Wells named after HERTHA here in Britain [in places where the surname is most frequently found] and across Germania [see Origins of the Name page] Hence, surnames beginning with 'HART-' are found throughout the Germanic world, in particular Britain, Ireland, Germany and Scandinavia. They are all named after the Mother Earth Goddess of Hunting, HERTHA.

One other HARTLEY Y-DNA result is: Haplogroup I1 [Viking-Scandinavian]
[see I1_DNA Page ]
and may be the source of the origins of the HARTLEY surname.
