Flight Surname DNA Project

If you are a Flight and your Father was a Flight, I’d love to talk, even if we don’t initially appear to be related. I’ve recently started a Flight Y-DNA surname project over at FTDNA. In might be able to get you a discount on a Y-DNA test, or in some cases if you are a descendant of a particular Flight I might be willing to pay for the test.

Here are a few Flight families I’m very interested in connecting with. If you are a descendant I’d love to share notes. If you are a direct male descendant of one of these families (you are a male, born with the surname Flight, and one of these men is an ancestor) then I’m particularly interested in getting in touch.

  • James Flight, born abt 1800 in (Kingston, Small Point, Broad Cove), Newfoundland, Canada. He married Charlotte Loveys on 06 December 1826 in Blackhead, Newfoundland, Canada.
  • Jacob Flight, born abt 1815 in (Kingston, Small Point, Broad Cove), Newfoundland, Canada. He married Mary Parsons 1820 in Mulley’s Cove, Newfoundland, Canada.
  • Zebedee Flight, born abt 1815 in (Kingston, Small Point, Broad Cove), Newfoundland, Canada.. He married Catherine Whalen in Blackhead, Newfoundland, Canada on 27 December 1842. Later he married Mary Butt on 14 December 1847 in Blackhead, Newfoundland, Canada.
  • William Flight, born abt 1815 in (Kingston, Small Point, Broad Cove), Newfoundland, Canada. He married Elizabeth King on 20 January 1831 in Blackhead, Newfoundland, Canada. He perhaps married a second time.
  • Richard Moores Flight, baptized 30 August 1818  in (Kingston, Small Point, Broad Cove), Newfoundland, Canada. He first married Catherine Dunn on 23 October 1848 and later married Elizabeth Burden on 15 November 1852, both in Broad Cove, Newfoundland, Canada.
  • John F. Flight, born about 1806 in (Kingston, Small Point, Broad Cove), Newfoundland, Canada. He first married Matilda Evans on 08 May 1837 in Blackhead, Newfoundland, Canada and later married Jane King on 03 November 1847 in Blackhead or Broad Cove, Newfoundland, Canada.

(Note: I have not verified the information above. As always with genealogy, it is subject to a high likelihood of error and shouldn’t be used without proof through the original sources. I’m listing the data here simply for search purposes, not as documentation of those people. Yes, I know Newfoundland was not part of Canada at the time of these events, I’m using the current country for search purposes.)
