came from an area in Normandy France
and was spelled St Jean
. In french, the name John
is pronounced Jahn (hence Jon
I'm a genealogist, and have been researching this line for over 35 years. My son and daughter is a St. John
with the Americanized pronunciation of straight forward St. John
. They (family back to 1661 landing in Virginia
) have never spelled it out, if it was spelled out it would be Seynt or Seint, Americanized version is Saint.
My son by DNA blood was the very first match in the whole DNA testing by blood from a match to an English St. John
, who pronounce it Sin Jin
, and spelled out Seint John
. Mr. Anthony Oliver
is descended from the ancient and aristocratic linage of the de Port and St. John
linage from France
and fought with William
the Conquer for England.
This line of St. John
is part of the Haplogroup I1 (preformed by the National Geographic who are monitoring the names and flows for the migration of our world.). I1 just so happens to be Nordic and traveled into that part of France
. The definition of I1 is Stone Masons. In history, Stone Masons were given a travel card that enabled them to travel anywhere in Europe
to do their trade. Many Crusaders would buy from the Masons their travel papers to move through Europe
, and in the end, of it, basically is how the Masonic Temple
was created, however they are called free masons, because they do not do the trade.
