William Jardine (1784–1843), a Scottish physician, opium merchant and trader who co-founded the Hong Kong based conglomerate Jardine, Matheson & Co., probably belonged to haplogroup J1. He was the son of Andrew Jardine (1740-1793), from Applegarth Town, Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland, himself the son of David Jarden (1715-1778). The Jardine Y-DNA Surname Project has two members (Jardine and Jordan) who share the same haplotype belonging to the deep clade J1-P58 > L858 > YSC0000076 > FGC8223 > BY65 > J-BY89/ZS1541. The Jardine member is a descendant of John Jardine, 1740-1812, from The Park, near Lochmaben. William Jardine was himself born on a small farm near Lochmaben. Considering how small and isolated Lochmaben is, they almost certainly descend from the same Jardines.

The J1-FGC8223 branch is found mostly among Arabs, notably in Palestine and Jordan, and it is likely that the surname Jardine/Jordan itself is derived from the geographic origin of migrants to the British Isles. In Scotland and Ireland this clade is less than 1000 years old. This suggests a possible migration at the time of the crusades.
