Gabriella is from a prominent family, with upper-class ancestors on both sides of her family going back hundreds of years. Her ancestry is English, with some Scottish, Northern Irish, Irish, and remote Dutch. She is descended from Stephanus Van Cortlandt, the first native-born Mayor of New York (who served from 1677 to 1678).

Before marrying Gabriella’s mother, Gabriella’s father was married to Lady Mary Gaye Georgiana Lorna Curzon-Howe, the mother of actress and model Cressida Bonas.

Gabriella’s paternal grandfather was Richard Hamilton Anstruther-Gough-Calthorpe, 2nd Baronet (the son of Fitzroy Hamilton Niall Anstruther-Gough-Calthorpe, 1st Baronet, and of Rachel Gough-Calthorpe). Richard was born in St. George Hanover Square, London. Fitzroy was the son of Lt.-Col. Robert Hamilton Lloyd-Anstruther and Gertrude Louisa Georgiana Fitzroy. Rachel was the daughter of Augustus Cholmondeley Gough-Calthorpe, 6th Baron Calthope, and of Maud Augusta Louisa Duncombe.

Gabriella’s paternal grandmother was Nancy Moireach Malcolmson (the daughter of Vernon Austen Malcolmson and Lilian Strutt). Vernon was the son of George Forbes Malcolmson and Catherine Annesley Austen. Lilian was the daughter of Henry Strutt, 2nd Baron Belper, and of Lady Margaret Coke.

Gabriella’s maternal grandfather was Theodore Bernard Peregrine Hubbard (the son of Theodore Stephan Hubbard and Lavinia May Bertie). Gabriella’s grandfather Theodore was born in Elham, Kent. Gabriella’s great-grandfather Theodore was the son of Thomas James Hubbard and Emily Fanny Parish. Lavinia was the daughter of The Rev. Hon. Almeric Edward Bertie and Lady Caroline Elizabeth McDonnell.

Gabriella’s maternal grandmother was Miriam Fitzalan-Howard (the daughter of Bernard Edward Fitzalan-Howard, 3rd Baron Howard of Glossop, and of Mona Josephine Tempest Fitzalan-Howard, 11th Baroness Beaumont, Baroness Howard of Glossop). Miriam was born in Marylebone, London. Bernard was the son of Francis Edward Fitzalan-Howard, 2nd Baron Howard of Glossop, and of Clara Louisa Greenwood. Mona was the daughter of Miles Stapleton, 10th Lord Beaumont, and of Ethel Mary Tempest.

Gabriella’s matrilineal line can be traced back to Christian Browne, who was born in the 1700s, and whose family lived in Limerick, Ireland.

Do you have any information or leads on the mother of Nancy Sadleir Bruere? I know she was called either Anne or Nancy Sadleir and married William Bruere in India in 1782. Anne is possibly her birth name and Nancy her preferred name, but I can’t find her place of birth or her parentage under either name.

One tree lists Nancy’s father as Holbeche Sadleir. Other than that, I don’t know.

HamarFFox February 13, 2016 at 8:57 am

Thanks. The Holbache Sadleir and his wife I found were too old to be her father. He could have remarried maybe, or had a son also named Holbache, who was her father.

I was probably right about being born Anne but known as Nancy. This probably relates to her:

She’s referred to as Anne in this Wikipedia article, but as Nancy in all of those trees, as well as the marriage record.

“too old to be her father” should read “too old to be her parents.” Editing error.

HamarFFox February 13, 2016 at 12:55 pm

There’s some confusion as to whether the surname is Sadleir or Sadlier, with evidence for both spellings. I think her father may possibly have been Anthony Sadleir (also with disputed spelling), Chief at Masulipatam, because I can’t find any other prominent Sadleirs (or Sadliers) in India. He’s another genealogical dead end, though, and I don’t know whom he married.

She looks like an average girl I see when I’m out. Kinda cute but mediocre.

Why is that the most beautiful women in here have “Dutch” in them?

Hazeleyes March 26, 2015 at 6:53 am

I honestly think she’s kind of plain looking.

Beautiful girl.

WTF November 7, 2014 at 8:10 pm

Why because she’s white? I notice you only state how attractive white celebrities are. Whenever someone is mixed you say they “look weird”. Racist dick.

Is it wrong to like people of your own kind?

Multiethnicchick April 13, 2015 at 11:25 am

what are you a dog? If you’re human then human kind is your own kind. What you probably meant to say is. “Is it wrong to have a preference?” Although I still can’t bring myself to be attracted to people with my phenotype. Seems kind of incestuous but whatever floats your boat. People usually end up marrying people that look like their mom or their sister which is disgusting but different strokes for different folks(or is same strokes for similar folks)

Greyface December 26, 2015 at 12:08 am

It’s basic human psychology, there is nothing disgusting about it.

JasonBaker May 21, 2014 at 12:38 pm

Her eyes look very small in that picture.

Check7t September 4, 2014 at 9:29 pm

It’s probably cause she’s squinting due to the sun.
