  • Notes 
    • This unknown man is the earliest paternal line ancestor of persons with the surname Briese.

      Based on Y-DNA testing of descendants, he is the most recent common ancestor of R-CTS2361 and is estimated to have been born around 1380 CE (68% CL = 1260-1470). This falls within the period when surnames were being adopted in this part of Germany.

      CTS2361 is an SNP marker that, so far, is exclusive to people bearing the Briese surname. It could identify the unknown ancestor who first adopted Briese as a surname. While it is possible that the name Briese preceded the CTS2361 mutation, no earlier mutation has been identified.

      The birth date has been rounded to 1400 to avoid the impression of unwarranted accuracy. There are around 18-20 generations between this ancestor and current Briese family members.
