The Broket Y-DNA Project — North American participants
Written records will never make connections between some Broket Groupings and Clans, but Y-chromosome analysis can. For your convenience, the North American participants are listed here separately. For the overarching Broket Y-DNA project see this separate page, and for the Table of Results see this separate FTDNA page.
The project currently has 12 participants from North America and results from 2 others. They fall into 4 unrelated Genetic Groups, 3 of which claim descent from John Brockett who died in New Haven in 1690. That raises questions! We need more evidence, more participants. Do make contact if you want to take part.
This page provides links to individual pages for each North American participant. As far as possible, documentary evidence is supplied for each generation stepping back, starting with the latest deceased carrier of the Y-DNA. We are working to complete the pages. If you’re interested in one that isn’t yet published, please make sure to check back in a while or else send a message and we’ll let you know when it is.
Genetic Group 3:
Elmer E BROCKETT 1913-88
Harold E BRACKETT 1916-81
Harold H BROCKETT 1921-2001
Harry D BROCKETT 1928-2005
Marlin L BROCKETTE 1913-2000
Richard Heaton BROCKETT 1912-2005
Ronald J BRACKETT 1927-2013
Wendell R BROCKETT 1910-83

Genetic Group 5:
Edward C BROCKETT 1898-1980
Frank B BROCKETT 1914-95
Ungrouped participants (Group 99):
Clyde N W BROCKETT 1935-2015
Genetic Group 3 contains participants who trace their descent from the 17th C immigrant John Brockett of New Haven. Results from descendants of two or more of his sons match at genetic distances of 0-3, thus validating their lines from him.
