Mark Grace:

Alisan - We have corresponded previously. Is there anyone in your line of descent with atDNA data to share? I am building a genetic trail in support of the paper evidence.

Veness Family History

6th November 2018

Mark Grace:

To close this particular thread the paper trail and genetics now provide a match to the BACON family of Lincolnshire to the Birmingham VENESS family, so the origins of the John SMITH, John Bacon SMITH genes are proven. I have posted in reply to Richard that we have an intriguing lead for the genetics of Samuel VENESS which is the current focus of investigations.

Mark Grace:

Hi Robin,

What information can you share that connects Isaac to Samuel? Samuel is my 4xGGF and the paper trail is not clear for him prior to his appearance in Worcester.

John Bacon Vaness

6th November 2018

Mark Grace:

Hello Suzanne - The story has been investigated in detail by me and proven by genetic evidence.
see http://creativegraces.net/genindex/veness.html
I continue to add to the genetic story if you have a result you would share on GEDmatch. JBV is the older brother to my 2xGGM Elizabeth VENESS. JBV and Elizabeth were two of 4 children to John BACON & my 3xGGM Elizabeth VENESS. It is a very complicated story. You can contact me through my research blog - https://www.facebook.com/BirminghamBranchesFromNtoZ/

Having genetic matches now to Asutralian VENESS families out of Battle means we have a connection to find on paper. Look forward to hearing from you.

Veness Family History

6th November 2018

Mark Grace:

Richard - Some interesting developments. My sibling's DNA has provided a match between those who have tested atDNA with Ancestry and are connected to the Birmingham family in England and a descendant of John VENESS in Australia, who arrived in 1839; the son of Battle farmer Thomas VENESS and his wife Mary. Ancestry researchers have the wife's name as Mary DAVIS, but I haven't been able to confirm. Additionally, all have taken (perhaps they are the easiest to attribute)Thomas' parents as the Said Samuel & Sarah. If true, it means our Samuel in England could at best be a son of a brother of Samuel senior. We remain frustrated by a clear baptismal record to pull this together, but the DNA is nevertheless intriguing. If any Australian VENESS descendants have tested atDNA (with any company) please let me know and share the data on GEDmatch. The match currently appears to be on chromosome 5.
