I have set up a DNA project to try to discover whether or not the Bousteads, Boustreds and Bulstrodes share a common ancestor. We have four samples in the database already - a Boustred one and three Bulstrode ones. If you would be interested in taking part in a DNA project, please do contact me. Because the DNA test uses the male Y chromosome, only direct male line name-bearing Boustreds, Bousteads and Bulstrodes can take part. Sadly, being female, that counts me out!
Further details of the project can be found at:

I am not undertaking a One-Name Study on these names, although there are other Guild members who are researching some of them as their registered name.
