Our research of the Slade surname began in early 1970s in the United States. Data gathered from birth, marriage, death, wills, immigration, ships manifests and census documents indicated, early on, that there were six large Slade branches in the United States. All the progenitors of these six Slade branches came from England, but were already in the United States during Colonial times, prior to 1750. These branches have all been confirmed with yDNA tests
The Slade surname was registered with the Guild of One Name Studies in 2018 thereby expanding the study world wide. We have now added many families from England, Canada, Newfoundland & Australia, totaling more than 20,000 documented Slade individuals in our database. Almost all are linked to their families and most of the families are linked to their ancestors who lived in England. We welcome correspondence with anyone world wide who is interested in the Slade surname. Please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or inquiries.

The earliest recording of the Slade surname appeared in church and public records in Southwest England, and that is likely the geographic origin of the family name. The darker shading of Counties on this map indicate locations of larger concentrations of Slade families at time of the 1851 English Census.
World Names Public Profiler indicates that countries with the largest Slade surname population are Great Britain, United States, Canada,
Australia and New Zealand.
Slade Surname yDNA Project tests only the Y-chromosome which is passed down from father to son, following the paternal line, so only males can be tested. Females can also participate in the project by encouraging brothers, fathers, uncles and male cousins to become yDNA donors to the project. yDNA tests are more accurate, reliable and meaningful to One Name Studies than other types of DNA tests.
Our Slade DNA project has been very successful in finding and confirming which branch one belongs to, and helping with your genealogical research. The Guild makes Y-DNA test kits available to One Name Project at a substantial discount. Please contact us at email@example.com if you are interested in Slade DNA.
