This international project welcomes all SUTTON family researchers regardless of the numerous spellings (e.g SUTTON, SITTON, SITTEN, SUTTEN, SEUTON, SEUTEN, SETTUNE, SUTTUNE, de SUTTONE etc). This includes the SUTTON-DE SOTTO-DUDLEY lines. Our aim is to identify all the various family lines, link those that match, and prove/disprove our genealogy theories. We encourage all SUTTON etc researchers to join this most valuable and proven project. The only requirement to join the Project and enjoy its discounted rate is to submit biographic data on your proven earliest SUTTON etc ancestor as well as the direct line. Please join our growing SUTTON family in making this Project a tremendous success! This Project includes all DNA testing including Family Finder, Y-DNA and maternal mtDNA. Here's the link to see a sample DNA kit:

                                        Sutton, Sutton-Dudley, etc DNA Project

This global DNA project welcomes all SUTTON family members regardless of the numerous spellings (e.g SUTTON, SITTON, SITTEN, SUTTEN, SEUTON, SEUTEN, SETTUNE, SUTTUNE, de SUTTONE etc). This Project also includes SUTTON-DE SOTTO-DUDLEY lines including the additional surnames: de NEUVILLE, DUDLEY, MANNERS, MONTAGUE, NEVILLE and TEUTON.  To enjoy the benefits of this project with its built-in discount over normal pricing we require your Sutton etc genealogy data.  These data are crucial to accompany the DNA results.

Note:  There is also a separate DUDLEY DNA project for those Dudleys that don't fit with the Sutton-Dudley Castle group. 

The Sutton name derives from Balderich Le Teuton (Baldericus Teutonicus).




The three primary tests for genealogy are:  Y-DNA for your paternal line; mtDNA for your maternal line; and, Family Finder autosomal DNA test for distant relatives:

**Y-DNA is for your direct paternal line - your father, his father, his father's father etc straight up the male line. Only a male can Y-DNA test. Y-DNA12 markers is more for anthropology; DNA matches can be long before surnames came into existance.  Y-DNA37 markers is very good since it brings DNA matches closer in time. But, even better is the Y-DNA67 markers test and, more so, the full 111 markers test.
**mtDNA is for your direct maternal line - your mother, her mother, her mother's mother etc on up the female line. Both a female and male can test for this line. mtDNA is for low-resolution; mtDNAPlus is for the better high-resolution. Full Gnome (aka mtDNA Mega) is the "whole enchilada"--any match at this level is a relative. 

**Family Finder tests 563,800 autosomal SNPs and 15,789 X chromosome SNPs. Both males and females can take this test. It is invaluable in identifying distant relatives, helping adoptees and breaking through brick-walls

For new donors, to order your discounted DNA test kit through this project: at the top of this page click on JOIN REQUEST.  Then, just fill in the order form. Upgrades and add-on test for existing donors should be placed from your personal page at FTDNA.  Credit Card payment is the most expeditious and is secure.

DNA testing for genealogy is nothing more than a couple good swabs of saliva from inside the cheek in the privacy of your own home. To see a sample DNA kit visit:  .  Also, be sure to visit: 


 NOTE: If you submitted your DNA to the Genographic Project PLEASE remember to download your results to FamilyTreeDNA and join the appropriate Surname Project. There are many additional benefits to enjoy with Family Tree DNA (FTDNA), particularly genealogy related.

For those of you who have tested with companies other than FTDNA please contact the Project Administrator regarding joining the project at FTDNA.

In 2007, FTDNA opened a multi-lingual office, iGENEA, in Zurich that offers customer support and news in Spanish, French, Italian, German and English, while providing local shipping and payment in common European currencies.

This is an interesting and fun site to learn about DNA for genealogy:


Note: FTDNA Project Administrators are volunteers who welcome the opportunity to help advance project genealogy and DNA.


Our aim is to identify and link all the various SUTTON etc families, prove/disprove our genealogy theories and provide a unique opportunity to find new relatives. The success of the Project depends on the number of participants in the Project. The only requirement is submission of your proved/documented ancestor and direct line data. So, jump-start your research and join today. Remember, DNA does not lie!

Note: Project Administrators are volunteers. Our "payment" is the pleasure of helping others find their roots and new genetic relatives.


On 13 July 2006, the separate Sutton-Dudley DNA Project was merged into the Sutton DNA Project.

**Effective 01 January 2014 the National Society of the Daughters of the Revolution (DAR) will begin accepting paternal Y-DNA results as part of the source documentation research package to help prove heritage to a Revolutionary War Patriot. The DAR now joins with the Sons of the American Revolution (SAR) and the General Society of Mayflower Descendants (GSMD) in accepting DNA for linear proof.

DNA results of participants in this international project reveal both matching and independent lines. These family lines are found in Canada, Europe, New Zealand, South Africa and the United States and include Haplogroups E1b1 (formerly E3), G, I, O, R1a and R1b.
