The registered variants of the name are Ashberry, Ashbery, Ashbarry and Aspbury.
There are many other variants including Asbury, Astbury and Ashburry.
The use of DNA to identify possible links between families is growing in popularity, and a project has been set up at Family Tree DNA for the names covered by this One-Name study. The project is called the Ashbury DNA Project for brevity, but covers other spellings of the name as well.
Y-DNA 37-marker Test Kits (for males only) and Family Finder (Autosomal) Test Kits (for males and females) are available for sale from the Guild at significant savings.
Results from the project are made available on the website as they arrive. If you are already in a Y-DNA project perhaps you would consider pooling resources to widen both data bases.
