Who'zTheDaddy? has provided DNA Testing in Tetbury on numerous occasions.

Tetbury is a small town and civil parish within the Cotswold district of Gloucestershire, England. It lies on the site of an ancient hill fort, on which an Anglo-Saxon monastery was founded, probably by Ine of Wessex, in 681. The population of the parish was 5,250 in the 2001 census. During the Middle Ages, Tetbury became an important market for Cotswold wool and yarn. [Tetbury Woolsack Races] Founded 1972, in which competitors must carry a 60 pound sack of wool up and down a steep hill [Gumstool Hill], is contested annually. Tetbury Woolsack Races take place on the "late May Bank Holiday", the last Monday in May each year (27 May for 2013). Notable buildings in the town include the Market House, built in 1655 and the late-eighteenth century Gothic revival parish church of St Mary the Virgin and St Mary Magdalene and much of the rest of the town centre, dating from the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. The Market House is a fine example of a Cotswold pillared market house and is still in use as a meeting place and market. Other attractions include the Police Bygones Museum. Chavenage House, Highgrove House and Westonbirt Arboretum lie just outside the town. Events include Woolsack Day, held on the last Bank Holiday in May, famous for the races and street fair. A flower show is held at the recreation ground, with classes ranging from children's "Make your own paper plate gardens" to adults "Best flower" and "Best knitting". The first "Tetbury Fiesta" was held on the recreation ground in July 2008, and has become an annual event - a family-friendly community festival of live music and fun, raising funds for local charities. The event for 2013 will take place on 14 July at a new venue - The Great Tythe Barn. Tetbury Music Festival is held in October (3 to 6 October 2013). Tetbury has won five consecutive Gold awards in the Regional "Heart of England in Bloom" competition in 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010 and was category winner "Best Small Town" in 2008, 2009 and 2010. In 2010 Tetbury was Overall Winner of Heart of England in Bloom and won a Judges Discretionary Award for Community Achievement. Tetbury won Silver Gilt as a first-time entrant in the National Britain in Bloom Campaign in 2009 and a second Silver Gilt in Britain in Bloom in 2011. The Tetbury town crest features two dolphins, which is curious given that the town is many miles inland.
