Templer/Templar DNA

Over the last few years we have been trying to contact anybody with the name of Templer or Templar (or any variants) who would be interested in taking a DNA test.

Some members of the Templer family, including myself, have had their DNA tested. So far it has proven that the Devon Templers, the Devonport Templers and the Oxford Templers are distinct families.

The good news is that we have had positive links between the Salmon Pool and Stover side of the family, confirming our documentary links.

A good friend who is a DNA guru has set up a research project to study and Templer/Templar DNA results so please visit our site at


If you have had a DNA test or are thinking of taking a DNA test and would like to know more, please do contact us.
