Parrott Genetic Genealogy- the families

glyph.gif - 1976 Bytes P-rr-tt Families & their Y-DNA Profiles
  • Overall "at a glance" results
  • P-rr-tt Y-DNA project at FTDNA
  • Understanding DNA results
  • The P-rr-tt families of North America (Includes families without a Y-DNA profile)

    There are now many types of DNA tests available. To participate in this study, make sure the test is a Y-DNA test!

    Y-DNA results sorted by haplogroup, and family within haplogroup. Y-DNA profiles for families with at least 3 tested individuals are on their own page; Families with just 1 or 2 tested individuals have been grouped into a miscellaneous page at the bottom.

  • This group has about 17 unrelated families originating in France, England or Wales
  • Paro, Parratt, Parrett, Parrott, Pearo, Pereault, Perreault, Perrett, Perrott, & Pierot

    See the Y-DNA results & additional information on these families

    • Current statistics:
    • 108 Family branches/patriarchs have been identified. Of these
    • 28 Branches have been Y-DNA-tested, and they fall into
    • 16 Distinct families
  • Locations represented: United States, Canada, England, France, Wales & South Africa

    Thus far, all P-rr-tts tested have fallen within one of four different haplogroups (main branches of the human family tree). These particular 4 are called E-M35 (previously E1b1b1), I-M253 (previously I1a), I-P37 (previously I2a) & R-M269 (previously R1b1a2 and its subbranches).

    The Y-DNA results indicate that most of the P-rr-tt families tested are not related to each other-- thus, the Parrott and related last names have come into use on several independent occassions, which is consistent with the premise that Parrott comes from the French for Perot, meaning little Peter, essentially, Peterson.

    The Y-DNA results and additional information on each of these families can be obtained by following the links above.
