In other articles I have written about R1b-ht-35 being the haplotype of the authentic sons of Levi and Aaron. I have also written of the region of northern England and southern Scotland as a region of Jewish Christian settlement in Roman times. It would seem that those places that have R1b-ht-35 also have Eb3 and J2. R1b-ht35, Eb3 and J2 are also found among those claiming Levite and Cohen status among Jews today. This represents an influx of Second Temple Jewish diaspora. While those places in which R1b-ht35 is found without Eb3 and J2 are descended from the earlier First Temple Levites and Cohanim before the Samaritan admixture entered among the Israelite families of the sons of Levi in the time of the Maccabees.
"...Research conducted by the administrators of the Border Reivers DNA Project has identified numerous haplotypes in persons of British descent that show Haplotype 35 markers. Moreover, most of these haplotypes appear to originate from areas of Britain near the Antonine Wall, Hadrian's Wall and other places of Roman fortification or settlement. These areas include Galloway, Dumfries, Ayrshire and The Borders in Scotland, and Cumbria, Yorkshire, Lancashire, Shropshire and Staffordshire in England. Many of the Roman troops stationed in these areas came from Southeastern Europe or Western Asia. They included Sarmatians, Dacians, Goths, Syrians, Mesopotamians, Thracians and Anatolians. The Capelli study has shown that these areas also exhibit higher than average frequencies of haplogroups E3b and J2, neither of which is native to Britain. E3b is found most commonly in North Africa, Iberia, the Mediterranean and the Near East,and J2 occurs most frequently in the Near East, the Mediterranean and Western Asia. The fact that all three groups - E3b, J2 and Haplotype 35 - have a similar origin in territories of the Roman Empire, and occur at comparable frequencies in parts of Britain with a known history of Roman settlement, suggests that they arrived in Britain through the same means..."
Note: E3b is also known as E1b1b (E-M215)
