Don’t suppose anyone knows what kind of jewish stock I’m most likely from?

SO, my dad’s family is southern and has been into genealogy for a very very long time. We can on paper trace our patrilineal line back to Templars, and those specific ancestors claimed to be direct patrilineal descendants of Christians from the 1st Century CE. The only thing we know is that they were Christians, not even for sure that they were originally jews (I guess they could have been romans or Canaanites or Philistines or any other group in Israel at the time). We know that their descendants, my ancestors went to Brittany in the North of France around the same time as the Ashkenazi, so maybe that lends to Ashkenazi? Were the jews even broken up into Sephardic/Ashkenazi/etc. yet?
