The name Copeland rings a bell with me. My Grand father was Willian Noel Lightbourne and he had a brother Roy...I don't remember the name of the others. I was told that Turks & Caicos was where his family was from. I am just getting into the search of my family

Isee you are trying to obtain some information on the Lightbourne Family.
My father's name is Kenneth Hilgrove Lightbourne from East Harbour, or Grand Turk, South Caicos. He had three brothers. My father is 91 years old. His brothers name are: Claudius (nickname Claudie), Stanley(nickname Baba-deceased), and James (nickname "Bar"). He had two sisters: Girleen (nickname Neenie-deceased) and Irene. His father's name is James Lightbourne and mother's name is Macietta Harvey Lightbourne(I think that is how you spell it). His birthdate: 24th May, 1921. He was married to Annie Lourie Penn from Lorimers, Middle Caicos. She is now deceased. His family roots go back to Bermuda. Hope this help a bit.

John LEYBOURNE indicate that the ancestry of his line is from Europe. He matches a Lightburn with ancestry from Bermuda. Kit 28286 is a 24/25 match with 3 Driscolls and one Driskill and a 23/25 match with two Driscolls. They are a 23/25 match with 5 Mullins. The Mullins family is associated with County Cork. They likely share direct paternal line ancestry with the O'Driscoll Clan of Baltimore in Southwestern Ireland. A SNP test reveals that he is P37.2+ which confirms that he belongs to Y chromosome subclade I2a (formerly I1b1). This subclade is mostly found in the Balkins and Sardinia. Cullen's Haplogroup Predictor at http://members.bex.net/jtcullen515/haplotest.htm scores a 100?% match with I1b1*-Isles-A that is considered to be indigenous to the British Isles arriving shortly after the last glacial maximum, 8,000 to 12,000 years ago.In 1662-3, John Leybourne emigrated to Bermuda, where it is recorded that he owned Lot #53. He became known as John Lightbourne, and his direct descendants were Joseph I, Joseph II, and Joseph III. The last Joseph, a ship's captain, had 18 children by two wives. His sons Paul and half-brother Benjamin emigrated to Nassau, Bahamas c.1775, and their descendants comprise the two large families of Lightbourns to be found in Nassau today. Known branches of Bahamian and Bermuda Lightbourns are living today in America and Canada, Mexico, Jamaica, and New Zealand.
