The HARTLEY Surname - DNA by William Hartley

The Genealogist - UK census, BMDs and more online

It's early days, but there appears to be one main male-YDNA Haplogroup for HARTLEYs: R1b [Native West European]

Results of YDNA tests show that most HARTLEYs are

Haplogroups R1b -> R-L278 -> R-L389 -> R-P297 -> R-M269 -> R-L23 -> R-L51 -> R-L151 -> R-P312 -> R-L21 -> DF13 ->

the most common male haplogroups in Britain and Ireland. It appears to be Native West European and links the British Isles with Western Europe in France, Spain, Portugal and the Western Mediterranean to North Italy [see Origins of the Name page].

In England and Scotland, about 60%-80% of people have Haplogroups R1b Y-DNA; in Ireland and Wales it's 80%-90%.

YDNA is only passed on from father to son and is little changed over thousands of years, so it is an excellent indicator of proving who is HARTLEY Family kin and when a Common Ancestor originated.

Some of the HARTLEY R1b SNP results [shown below] are close enough a match to one another for me to group members into subclades [YDNA subgroups] that indicate place, as well as date of a Common Ancestor for that subclade.
HARTLEYs might bear the same family surname, but outside of their extended family, they are unlikely to be related to one-another. They weren't descended from just one person, say for instance, a 'John Hartley' who lived 5 000 years ago. The surname is just an adopted name, likely a place name; it doesn't show there's any family relationship to other HARTLEYs nearby, nor around Britain and Ireland, or around the world. But testing your YDNA can show what Haplogroup you belong to, what subclade, and can help break down 'brick walls' found through traditional 'paper' genealogy research.

hartleyfamilyorguk believes the place name 'HARTLEY' was derived from the English-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 has had links to the British Isles since the Last Great Ice Age and was used by early English-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, English-Germanic tribes exchanged culture. Germanic tribes mainly comprised of Jutes, Angles, Frisians, Rugians, Saxons, Huns and Boructuari. Some members of the 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 the British Isles [in places where the surname is most frequently found] and across Germania and the Low Countries [see Origins of the Name page] Hence, surnames beginning with 'HART-' are found throughout the English-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 [Native European]
[see I1_DNA Page ]
and may be the source of the origins of the HARTLEY surname.
