Hi, I was on FTDNA and in the NOBLE Group there is a Kit # 36865 which lists Maj. Arthur Noble b 1654 d 1731 County Fermanagh as Parental Ancestor.  Does this belong to anyone in this group???

Suzanne - perhaps  we can communicate better outside this group - my email is

Suzanne - the match you found  on FTDNA - kit number N23705 is me. I will have to check that out later today - unfortunately 12 markers is very little - I have had 111 done. I will get back to you either here or from FTDNA - this could be very interesting.

Being very obstinate and not wanting to give up, I am trying to find out who matches my brother on FTDNA at 12 markers, with haplogroup BY3194. The name is 'Mr Noble', ancestor is John Noble 1817 Fermanagh, 1861 Ontario. 

The match is also on the Noble results in group 1, with kit # N23705.

I have results from Yfull, which show 3 matches, including 2 from France. Two are known matches, the other is a Frenchman from the Loire region. He has replied to my message and seems interested in being involved.

There were so many families that went to Canada, some of them must be related?

If only the Irish records were not so hard to find........

Hi, I have just joined this group in the hope of tracing my g grandmother and her ancestors, which I have been researching on and off for about 5 years.

All I know at the moment is that her name is Jane Noble she was born Enniskillen, Ireland  abt 1832,  and she married a Joseph Lewis in NSW Australia in 1853.

The rest of the information I have is very murky. 

There is a Jane Noble  (COE) that immigrated to Australia in 1852 on a ship named the David Mciver,   I have a copy of the passenger list and someone has written on it that her parents were John and Martha both deceased, I don't know if this was added by someone from Ancestry?  and they are just guessing the name of her parents or if it was added my the irrigation board?

I also have a copy of her Death Cert.and my grandmothers Birth cert both of which state that she had no parents  which seems to confirm that she could have been an orphan at the time of immigration?

Best wishes for the holidays, to all the Nobles and their extended families. Still looking for the elusive possible NPE!

Thanks Danilo, I have had a look at that Henry. He must be part of the Ulster family somewhere. It seems there were a lot of them, unfortunately he does not seem to belong to any of the families we are looking for.

While researching my g-father's war records, I came across a "Henry Noble" that enlisted in the Spanish American War with an address of Fermanagh, Ireland. I found the records in the page. Hope that helps.

Hi Suzanne, I am the Scott Noble you mentioned earlier.  I checked into FTDNA and was looking for the Kit # 599041 but didn't find it.  Are you a member of FTDNA's NOBLE group or another group?  Would like to connect directly ... my email is ...

As is your brother, my terminal mutation is BY3194.
