Charlie Sheen is an American actor. He is the son of actor Martin Sheen (born Ramón Antonio Gerardo Estévez) and Janet Templeton. He has several siblings, including actor Emilio Estévez. Charlie has been married to actresses Denise Richards and Brooke Mueller.
Charlie’s father is of half Spanish and half Irish ancestry. Charlie’s mother has English, Scottish, and possibly other, ancestry. Charlie’s father is Catholic and Charlie’s mother is Baptist.
In 2011, when Charlie was accused of making an anti-Jewish comment, Charlie stated that his mother is Jewish. It appears that this is not correct. At the very least, Charlie’s maternal grandmother was for certain not Jewish.
Charlie’s paternal grandfather was Francisco Estévez Martinez (the son of Jose Manuel N. Estévez Fernandez and Dolores Martinez). Francisco was born in Parderrubias, Salceda de Caselas, Galicia. Jose was the son of Augustín Estévez Martinez and Maria/Maita Fernández-Baquíero. Deolores was the daughter of Carmen Martinez.
Charlie’s paternal grandmother was Mary Anne Phelan (the daughter of Michael James Phelan and Anna Jane McGlin). Mary was born in Borrisokane, Tipperary, Ireland. Michael was the son of Patrick Phelan and Margaret Drennan. Anna was the daughter of John McGlin and Jane Rogers.
It is unclear who Charlie’s biological maternal grandfather was. One source lists his name as Stanley Ryan.
Charlie’s maternal grandmother was Lena/Lee Ann Helene Martin (the daughter of Thomas Samuel Martin and Martha Fayette Flint). Lena’s family was from Kentucky, and had English and Scottish ancestry. Thomas was the son of Ananias Martin and Parthenia Osborne. Martha was the daughter of Hyrum/Hiram Flint and Mary Porter.
