R1 Migration into Europe and England 8-10 Thousand Years Ago
Between the time of Chauvet and the most recent (8,000 - 10,000 years ago), a mini-ice-age wiped out a majority of tribes that had migrated north of a certain latitude. But with the relaxation of this colder period, the last major migration into Europe and England occurred. This was the R1 migration. As tribes settled in particular places for longer periods of time, mutations occurred. Hence you find R1b1's, the R1b1a's and so on until, R1b1a2a1a1b3c. This is the haplotype of the family of Georgius Maule or Buckinghamshire. Georgius himself was born around 1580 and so is not likely to be the father of George Manly who was born around 1624. But his son, Thomas Maule, is the more likely, though there is no paper trail at all. My haplotype is R1b1a2a1a1b3c1, (differing by the "1") which means a direct line of descent from the Georgius Maule.
