Hamish Linklater is an American actor. He is the son of Kristin Linklater, an acting teacher, director, and author, and James Lincoln Cormeny.
Hamish’s father, who was American, was of German, English, Irish, Scottish, and Swedish descent. Hamish’s mother is Scottish, and has Scottish, as well as some English and Swedish, and distant Belgian (Flemish), ancestry.
Hamish’s patrilineal line can be traced back to Joseph Carmany/Karmanee, who was born, c. 1738, in Sudliche Weinstrasse, Germany, to Johannes/John Carmane and Maria Catherina Krauss.
Hamish’s paternal grandparents were Alvin Elmore Cormeny (the son of Alvin Eugene Cormeny and Gladys Collins) and Meredith Daphne Storr (the daughter of Percy Thomas Storr and Ethel Lilian Peterson). Percy was born in Illniois, to an English father and a Swedish mother. Ethel’s father was Swedish.
Hamish’s maternal grandparents were Eric Linklater (Eric Robert Russell Linklater, the son of Robert Baikie Linklater and Mary Elizabeth Young) and Marjorie MacIntyre (the daughter of Ian MacIntyre and Ida Van der Gucht). Hamish’s grandfather Eric was born in Penarth, Vale of Glamorgan, Wales, and was raised in Scotland; he was a writer who also helped found the Scottish National Party. Eric’s maternal grandfather was Swedish. Hamish’s maternal great-grandmother Ida was English, and had distant Belgian (Flemish) ancestry through her surname, “Van der Gucht”.
