Are Brinsons and Brinstons related? DNA Testing May Answer
The Brinston Y-DNA project has been established to explore possible relationships between Brinston families worldwide. As Brinston is a rare name in England, its supposed origin, it may be a different spelling of another name or names, including Brinson.
The Brinston Y-DNA project has started by testing a descendant of William Brinston (1787-1868) of Sound Island, Newfoundland. Male Brinstons of other lines and Brinsons are invited to participate.
