Emma has said that her father was born in Iran, where her paternal grandparents, who were English, spent some time.

Emma’s paternal grandmother is Freda E. Duerre (the daughter of Frederic E. Duerre and Susannah Martha Pannell). Emma’s great-grandfather Frederic was the son of Ernest Frederick Duerre and Ellen Emma Soul. Susannah was the daughter of Albert Isaac Pannell and Susannah Sarah Hutchings.

Emma’s maternal grandfather is Colin Luesby (the son of Horace Luesby and Edith Speck). Horace was the son of John Peake Luesby and Susan Ward. Edith was the daughter of Robert Speck and Fanny Smith.

Emma’s maternal grandmother is Greta M. Dickinson (the daughter of John George Dickinson and Winifred Jane Bonsor). John was the son of George Dickinson and Elizabeth Rebecca A. Walton. Winifred was the daughter of William Bonsor and Mary Jane Tanser.

Both of Emma’s maternal grandparents were from families that had lived in Lincolnshire for several generations.

Watson is a Scottish surname, there must be a Scottish grandad somewhere in her tree.

He didn’t take anything. He’s either trolling or has a serious disorder.

people with such dark eyes do have italian roots

Do you really believe in the stuff you write? I already told you that around 25/30% of Italians on average have light eyes, according to some anthropological studies. You also said that you met many blue-eyed Sicilians (that isn’t actually something uncommon)

She is of Celtic and Germanic ancestry

Memet is a transcription error. Her German ancestor is from Memel, Prussia.

What kind of comment is that idiot? What’s that got to do with her ethnicity?

Capricious October 10, 2015 at 6:32 pm

Shut up….

Pretty woman. She was born in France so is she considered french to some degree?

Me myself and I November 15, 2016 at 3:10 am

not really, since this page is about a celeb’s origins/what they are by blood. Being born somewhere doesn’t apply here :)

Overrated, both in looks and talent-wise.

I’m building up her family tree. Could you give the place and date of birth for John George Dickinson and his parents, George Dickinson and Elizabeth Rebecca A Walton?

This tree has some information:

As for Elizabeth Rebecca A. Walton, she was born c. 1876, in Lincolnshire, England, to Harriet and Clement Walton.

Hamar_Fox April 16, 2015 at 10:29 am

Thanks. Harriet’s maiden name was Brown. There’s a pretty clear-cut paper trail, and I think I’ll be able to dig up a bit more. Clement Walton’s father was also called Clement Walton.

Capricious April 2, 2015 at 7:19 pm

Just because she has a “milky white skin” that would “tan” doesn’t mean she has Italian blood.

She’s as white and as British as anyone could be!

Italians are white, so you missed the whole point by a fucking continent…
