Harry Styles

Harry Styles is an English singer, songwriter, and actor. He is a member of the boy band One Direction, along with Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, and, previously, Zayn Malik.

Harry is the son of Anne (Selley) and Desmond Styles. He is of English descent. Many of his ancestors were farm labourers in Norfolk. Some of Harry’s father’s ancestry can be traced back to the 1500s.

Harry’s paternal grandfather is Keith Frederick Styles (the son of Ernest George Styles and Gladys Winifred Fairchild). Keith was born in Northamptonshire. Gladys was the daughter of Frederick Fairchild and Jane Winters.

Harry’s paternal grandmother is Beryl German (the daughter of John George German and Doris Daniels). Beryl was born in Northamptonshire. Doris was the daughter of Elijah Daniels and Maggie Rosetta Dunkley.

Harry’s maternal grandfather is Brian William Selley (the son of William Thomas Selley/Selby and Ena May Boon). Brian was born in London. Harry’s great-grandfather William was the son of John Hackwarthy Selley and Martha Caroline Baker.

Harry’s maternal grandmother is named Mary Smith.

Because of Harry’s interest in the Jewish faith, there has been speculation as to whether Harry is of Jewish background/religion. Harry is not Jewish (neither of his parents is of Jewish ancestry).

He does not look like this anymore (same for Liam Payne and other teen idols), but if money is the reason I agree with you.

Btw can you confirm my Chris Froome submission when you can? Thank you very much.
