Jennifer Love Hewitt

by ethnic on May 16, 2010

Place of Birth: Waco, McLennan, Texas, U.S.

Date of Birth: February 21, 1979

Ethnicity: English, Scottish, German, remote French

Jennifer Love Hewitt is an American actress, singer, songwriter, producer, and director.

Jennifer is the daughter of Patricia Mae (Shipp) and Herbert Daniel Hewitt. She is married to actor Brian Hallisay, with whom she has two children.

Jennifer’s documented ancestry includes English, Scottish, German, and remote French.

On an Instagram live feed on March 9, 2018, Jennifer said that she also has Dutch and Native American ancestry. It is not clear if Jennifer’s Native American ancestry has been verified/documented. All of Jennifer’s grandparents and great-grandparents are listed as “White” on United States Censuses. It is not clear if Jennifer has Dutch ancestry either.

Jennifer is sometimes described on the internet as being of Italian descent. This is not accurate.

Jennifer’s paternal grandfather was Herbert James Hewitt (the son of Herbert/Bert Edward Hewitt and Pearl Beard). Jennifer’s grandfather Herbert was born in Texas. Jennifer’s great-grandfather Herbert was born in Manchester, England, the son of Benjamin F. Hewitt and Levina Clowe. Pearl was the daughter of James Rose Beard and Temperance Lottie Hobbs.

Jennifer’s paternal grandmother was Mary Elizabeth Ogle (the daughter of Daniel/Dan E. Ogle and Etta M. Patterson). Mary Elizabeth was born in Mississippi. Daniel was the son of William Ogle and Ida P. Davis. Etta was the daughter of Henry C. Patterson.

Jennifer’s maternal grandfather was Lemuel Houston Shipp (the son of Solomon David “Pete” Shipp and Donna/Dona Mae Jones). Lemuel was born in Texas. Solomon was the son of William A. Shipp and Bertha Lee Durst.

Jennifer’s maternal grandmother was Charlotte/Charloette Grace/Brace Weagley (the daughter of Omer/Homer/Omar Frederick Weagley and Lula Grace Kendall). Charlotte was born in Maryland. Omer was the son of William F. Weagley and Ida M. Kinsel. Lula was the daughter of William Wesley Kendall and Martha Alice Kuhn.

On Friday 9th March Jennifer Love Hewitt did a live feed on her Instagram with her friend Maria Sansone. During this live feed, Maria mentioned the reasoning behind why they both get along so well being because they were both of Italian descent. Jennifer denied being Italian and said her background was not Italian, but actually Dutch, French, English, German and Native American. Now I know most of the nationalities you have stated to be in Jennifer’s background match up with the ones I have just mentioned Ethni, but just thought I’d share what she said on her social media. Also, I realise a lot of celebrities state having Native American ancestry (when infact they don’t), but with Jennifer, it may be a truth, even if it is distant. The reasoning for this is because she is a native of Texas where a lot of the early settlers of Texas intermarried with local Native American’s for the lack of white women. So there maybe some credence behind that statement regarding Jennifer having Native American ancestry.

fuzzybear44 January 14, 2018 at 11:47 pm

oh so she was more than just English

Capricious October 9, 2015 at 12:10 am

She does look southern European.

luckystar November 4, 2015 at 6:23 am

Thats because France….

phaedra May 20, 2016 at 8:40 pm

It’s remote though.

lelo4 September 11, 2016 at 7:36 pm

I didn’t know French people were southern european lol

andrew September 12, 2016 at 3:53 pm

well, they consider themselves culturally closer to other Romance/Latin people than to Brits for example.

neiltennant November 22, 2017 at 12:47 pm

they are not southern europeans

French people look like germans and they can also look like northern europeans

it is a lie that they are dark

andrew January 13, 2018 at 12:25 pm

“French people look like germans”???

cwm85 July 31, 2015 at 11:35 am

She looks a lot like women from england. She is Kate Middletown favor each other a lot.

xoxo July 30, 2015 at 10:03 pm

Naturally pretty.

Drea K June 27, 2015 at 6:18 am

She looks mostly French.

Rekta July 18, 2015 at 7:28 am

The French heritage is very insignificant.. She looks British (Brits can have brown/dark hair/eyes…), Italian, German… Western European woman.

Daron March 22, 2014 at 1:12 pm

I thought she would be Italian, Greek or Russian. Based on her dark hair.

Check7t August 27, 2014 at 6:40 am

Her hair isn’t “dark” it’s medium brown, which is a common color amongst the English and Southern German.

J.J. September 22, 2013 at 11:55 pm

correction; her eyes are hazel (light brown) and her hair is dark brown (brunette) I think it should be listed

zombiecop August 11, 2013 at 10:12 am

this family tree is false and some ancestors are wrong for example Jacob Kinsel is not the son of Anna Maria Kuhns and John Kinsel he is the son of Salome Heckman and Joseph Kinsel and he was never married to Sara Ann Burkhart.This family tree is false like some other Jennifer Love Hewitt family tree where it was stated that among her ancestors are Henry Percy, 2nd Earl of Northumberland, Ralph de Neville, 1st Earl of Westmorland,Elizabeth de Mortimer and others.She is obviously of English and possible Scottish ancestry.Just take a look at her she looks very English.

follers August 11, 2013 at 2:39 pm

The family tree may be false at that level, I don’t know (I didn’t create it). But if “Jacob Kinsel is not the son of Anna Maria Kuhns and John Kinsel he is the son of Salome Heckman and Joseph Kinsel”, that would still mean Jennifer has German ancestry.

skydancer710 September 23, 2013 at 3:52 pm

That is my family tree. I have removed the info in question until I can further check my sources. Sometimes you get bad info and if is, so be it and it will be corrected. It is not intentionally “false”. Jennifer is my 5th cousin through her mom’s father.

skydancer710 September 23, 2013 at 4:00 pm

More specifically the Rootsweb trees in the original article are mine, that you are referring to.

skydancer710 September 23, 2013 at 4:08 pm

Ugh typos…wish this thing had an edit feature but the *first* link is mine…

spaceyaquarius August 8, 2013 at 1:49 am

More evidence that the English/German/Scotch-Irish mix produces the hottest women on the planet. Wow!!! A woman cannot get hotter than our JLH and she still has the rockin’ body of a hottie. The boobs are German, the eyes could be the remote French, and the cute femininity is totally south Texas.

JLH, we will always love you, unless you get fat again.

theropod June 26, 2013 at 4:09 am

I thought she had Italian ancestry too…?

follers June 26, 2013 at 4:19 am

Internet mistake. She is a WASP.

neiltennant May 11, 2013 at 1:52 pm

i was in britain in 1996, 1998 , 2008 and 2011
and i saw many women who looked like her, many of them had black or brown hair

some green/blue, some brown eyes
therefore i would say that she is predominantly english+ irish

nnnnn April 29, 2013 at 1:43 pm

She has brown (not black) hair and light brown eyes and
not very tunned skin. What is here “dark”? Compare with
Penelope Cruise and Antonia Banderas.
There are many german, dutch and polish women like her

Gabriel May 5, 2013 at 12:39 pm
nnnnn May 6, 2013 at 12:03 am

Maybe Penelope uses a sun bed, too. But she has black
hair and dark brown eyes. To Banderas – maybe his dad
is a bit arab? Their name is Bandera, they
added a spain end “-s”

Gabriel May 6, 2013 at 9:54 am

Black hair and dark eyes is not uncommon in Mediterranean countries, UK and Ireland, even in Germany or Holland (look at Famke Janssen). If Penelope Cruz and Banderas were British would be considered white.

andrew May 6, 2013 at 2:08 pm

they are “white”, but since this is an American site there are many persons confused about European people.

andrew May 6, 2013 at 2:02 pm

Penelope Cruz has brown eyes not particularly dark
http://www.newscinema.it/wp-content/uploads/2012/06/penelope-cruz-penelope-cruz-4919126-1024-768.jpg
not sure which is her natural hair color..more dark brown than black
Banderas is Antonio’s maternal surname, he chose it as stage name maybe coz his paternal last name Dominguez is too common in Spain (the same happened to the forme r Spanish PM Zapatero whose paternal surname is Rodriguez).
For what I know Arabs were espelled from Iberian Peninsula in 1492 (as the Jews) and he is Catholic

nnnnn May 6, 2013 at 10:05 pm

Since “arabs were espelled”, began a mass imigration after WW2. Plenty of european women
have children with arabs and other immigrants.
Especially if a girl isn’t slim, it’s difficult for her to
find an european partner (In didn’t mean Antony’s
mum, I ment in general)

andrew May 6, 2013 at 2:13 pm

Bandera is Spanish for “flag” and comes from Latin “bandus” (where even english “band” word comes from), Banderas is plural form.
There’s no relation with Arab language

nnnnn May 6, 2013 at 10:01 pm

O’k. I can’t explain, why smb changed his name
from Bandera to Banderas. Is it more beautiful?

none April 27, 2013 at 10:52 pm

England was Italian for nearly 500 years under the Roman emperors. London(Londinium) was created by Romans along with most of the British Isles great cities. Roman Emperor Hadrians wall extended to Southern Scotland. the Welsh are considered Mediterraneans since they resisted Anglo-Saxon culture the most of Britain’s peoples. Manchester especially was one of the last bastions of Roman culture in Britain before the Nordic invasions. so, yes, Jeniffer does have Mediterranean features and very possibly she is distantly of Italian(Roman) descent

nnnnn April 28, 2013 at 1:56 pm

do you seriously think, 1/1000 blood
can pay influence at our features? BTW, if italians are more
“dark”, then not thank roman blood

andrew April 28, 2013 at 3:57 pm
nnnnn April 29, 2013 at 1:26 pm

O’k, that with legionairs and soldgiers of wicked
quenn Isabell is a truth, just as a hystorical fact,
not as a pseudo-scientific Y-chromosom.
Poor british women were always raped, maybe
that’s why they like “Shadows of grey”.(D)
But where are the evidences, that antic roman
people were “dark”?

Marc 2 April 29, 2013 at 9:34 pm

It would more intersting to see the similar genetic map for Nederlands and Northern Germany and especially for Italy :)

Holly12 April 1, 2013 at 3:09 pm

So if Jennifer’s paternal Grandfather Herbert James Hewitt was born in Manchester, England, does that make Jennifer 1/4 English?

Holly12 April 5, 2013 at 1:44 pm

So Jennifer is mainly of English or British descent then. Thanks Follers :)

zombiecop March 21, 2013 at 7:35 am

these genealogies and family trees are mostly false she looks pure English to me.In the first time here was stated she is only of English ancestry and that was the truth.

nnnnn March 2, 2013 at 2:46 am

“Love” as the second name. lol

Roger April 10, 2012 at 3:48 am

This is strange because in IMDB and some other pages it`s stated that she is of Italian and German ancestry, but I didn`t find any Italian on German ancestors in her family tree.Maybe here`s the true information.

Labtec April 7, 2013 at 10:32 am

IMDb? Really? How anybody can look at her and think “Oh, yeah, she’s definitely Italian”, is beyond me. Physically she appears very British.

Anyway, English, Scottish & German, is a mix anybody should be proud of.

Holly12 April 7, 2013 at 12:26 pm

Well at least IMBD got German right,ha. But I know what you mean Labtec. I think what confuses people about Jennifer’s heritage is the fact she has dark eyes, dark hair & tanned skin, (which created by stereotypes) makes a lot of people associate somebody with those kind of physical traits to be of Mediterranean descent. I think many people, especially those not from the British Isles, don’t realize that there are quite a few Brits who can have darker features too. All you have to do is look at Brit actors like Clive Owen, Orlando Bloom & Catherine Zeta Jones to see that.

Christian March 23, 2012 at 3:10 pm

wow she is soo pretty, awesome hair and eyes

she looks very very very british

i mostly watch the show THE AVENGER a british show of the 60s

and the most girls/women in the show look exactly like her

mm March 20, 2012 at 5:25 am

She looks very English, I knew before I even visted the page that she was English.

Holly88 March 17, 2012 at 1:31 pm

The Link below shows Jennifer Love Hewitt has British ancestry, her Mother’s British ancestry goes way back with them emigrating to the United States of America in the 1600’s.

yousra March 10, 2012 at 5:37 am

why is she called american if both parents r ENGLISH I JUST DONT GET IT!!!!

Holly88 March 20, 2012 at 4:53 am

Her Parents aren’t English, there nationality is American, but her Parents ancestry is English. ;)

BRU HA HA January 28, 2012 at 7:24 pm

JENNIFER LOVE HEWITT CLEARLY HAS MEDITERRANEAN ANCESTRY – LIKELY ITALIAN. JUST LOOK AT HER HIPS, FOR GOODNESS SAKES, AND HAIR COLOR. SHE LIKELY HAS ENGLISH ANCESTRY AS WELL. OF COURSE, WE ALL KNOW PEOPLE HAVE BEEN MIXING UP SINCE CRO-MAGNON CROSSED NEADERTHAL.

storm January 28, 2012 at 8:35 pm

Why all caps?

mm March 20, 2012 at 5:15 am

She looks very English.

what? January 9, 2012 at 1:01 pm

the origin of her last name doesnt mean much if it could have been changed somewhere down the road.

not enough info! more investigation is needed here.

Robert January 30, 2012 at 1:30 am

Every ethnic group which has lived in this country has taken on an English surname (upon arrival, generations after, as well as those forced on the indigenous people) it is not a determining factor.

Ronald Vaughan September 11, 2011 at 12:45 pm

This is what I’ve been trying to enter on WikiPedia but some jerk keeps taking it down. Both you and the House of Names agree….”Hewitt” IS British/English in ethnicity.

JLH has rarely,though,dated any British/English guys….exception,being
Paul Nicholls (from her film “if Only”).

THANKS FOR YOUR SITE.

Trol October 3, 2011 at 5:30 pm

The British are the citizens of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, and the english are the people borned in the nation of England and with Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland form the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

Faizzia_Sharma August 27, 2011 at 4:28 am

English people can have dark skin,dark eyes…etc The Celts who settled in England were originally short,dark & hairy.The pale English people have mainly Germanic/scandinavian ancestry.Most English people are a mix.The Welsh are more Celtic,and the Scots are more Pictish.Some claim the Picts migrated from the black sea region.

Some even claim that the Saxons descend from the Scythians which were described as being ginger with blue eyes,and the romans called them Sacae(c prononced as a s),the Scythians were an Iranian people from Asia.English and Persian look slighty similar : Daughter (English) = Dokhter/Dekheter (kh prononced as a strong French r).

So yeah,who ever says dark English people don’t exist or try to invent false ancestry for dark English people can rou7 Taati off as they say in Algiers.

Alice May 21, 2016 at 9:03 am

“The Celts who settled in England were originally short,dark & hairy.” You’re not describing Celts there. Most likely Neolithic people but not Celts who only came on the scene about 2,000 years ago. Anyway the ginger gene is highest in these “Celtic” populations. Anyway someone like Jennifer Love Hewitt who has brown eyes and dark hair isn’t particularly dark by world standards.

Marc August 16, 2011 at 7:48 am

List of beauty Britain girls from cinema,tv or sport is really very massive.When i say Britain,i mean people from Brit Islands (geographicaly,not politically,including Ireland) and people whose all or mostly part ancestors fom there.

Anonymous June 16, 2011 at 9:23 pm

ALSO, BOTH OF HER FAMILIES COULDVE ANGLICIZED THEIR NAMES IF THEY CAME TO AMERICA A WHILE BACK, SO THATS ANOTHER POSSIBILTY!!

Anonymous June 16, 2011 at 9:15 pm

Uhhh, it says on imdb that her mom is italian and her dad is german, so i guess no one is really right in this situation. Although i guess its still possible she could have english ancestry. You guys can check for yourself.

Fred May 22, 2011 at 3:29 pm

She’s a “Heinz 57” for god’s sake!

Nathan Tisdale Mottram April 22, 2011 at 1:42 pm

oh my god English people are not ugly at all i think i have abetter list here

the list is endless

and catherina zeta jone sis welsh also racheal wiez is mostly german and russian

and also there is more english people in the united kingdom than any other england is the biggest country and most welsh peopel are actualy english

Paul. April 22, 2011 at 4:23 pm

You’re back… w00t.

I find your ‘list of beautiful English people’ to be quite amusing, because a good few of them aren’t English, they’re American. (Katy Perry, Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears, all of whom have other ethnic groups in them, besides English) And then you’ve got Cheryl Cole, who’s Scottish/Irish descent, Kimberley Walsh, who I believe has Irish heritage (see the origins for the surname Walsh) Sienna Miller, another American, Olivia Newton John, who’s German-Jewish/Welsh? Just English-born…
Emma Watson, who is one quarter French, Ashley Tisdale and David Beckham, both partially Jewish, with Ashley being American, not English. . .
Mischa Barton who is English-born, but half Irish on her mother’s side (and who takes after her in looks :D) plus, she’s also American, Brad Pitt is Welsh-American, isn’t he? Still American, though. Not English.
Pixie Lott is partially Italian, oh and you’ve just listed a few members of The Saturdays. Funny how the Irish one (Una Healy) was voted most beautiful/hottest. ;D

So, providing us with a list of beautiful “English” people, when the majority of them aren’t really English, was kind of pointless?

I hate to keep repeating myself, but there are just some people who refuse to believe that in every country there are beautiful people. Your country of birth does not determine how attractive you are. I’m sorry you had to find out this way.

Much love,
your favourite person ever. :D :D

Anonymous April 22, 2011 at 4:35 pm

I think he was talking about English as ethnicity, Paul, not nationality. Most white Americans descend from different Caucasian ethnic groups, and even Native American and black.

However, you are right. When talking of nationality, most of those people are not English by citizenship. When you are talking of ethnicity, most of those people are not English either. Cheryl Cole, for example, is Irish and Scottish ethnically, but a citizen of England.

Still, there are pretty English people. There just seems to be not many left, and if they are, they are usually mixed with another ethnic group.

missyEire, October 6, 2011 at 7:34 am

This Nathan person seriously hates Irish people how sad any post that says someone has Irish ethnicity he goes around saying no there not they are English.He got awful upset on the Cheryl Co

le post that her ethnicity is Irish and Scottish god he hates Celts lol,He loves to say irish people are ugly lets list some with Irish ethnicity also some the same as you list lol
Cheryl Cole
Colin Farrell
Katy Perry
Heath Ledger
Una Healy (the best looking Saturday others are dogs)
Misha Barton
Lindsay Lohan
Jonathon Rhys Meyers
Pierce Brosnan
The Script “Danny” esp

Worldgrl November 11, 2011 at 7:05 pm

even though your argument is quit good ,. you can’t say they are American , .. because really there is no such thing it’s just an accumulation word for all the cultures that “settled” there after their forefathers snatched the land from the “Natives” and the cutlures that moved or been born there ever since

Angantyr September 8, 2011 at 2:30 am

Abbey Clancy, Cheryl Cole, Pixie Lott, Katy Perry, etc. have Irish ancestry and look it (especially Abby Clancy, who is from Liverpool, which is pretty much a part of Ireland in England).

Catherine Zeta Jones has an Irish mother she takes after too. lol

Marc March 31, 2011 at 5:26 am

Oh really?! do you think dark colour of hair is typical just for southern people? ))) Just look at the posters of german nazist leaders in your room! most of them had dark hair.

NightStarryWayto1971 March 17, 2011 at 12:07 pm

it’s pure heavy frog shit … it’s surely an a obsessed fan with Italian origin who fantasize a little bit too much and imagine a scenario about his origin…
and dear god how she cannot been english with a name like Hewitt ? …

Sometimes there’s families who arrived in America later (since less than 100-80 years) and this can be a reason why she has no other origins…

Klipping October 26, 2010 at 7:14 am

I don’t think this drop dead gorgeous babe is fully English, maybe she is part English but not fully, if she were 100% English she were absolutally ugly!!!, English women are so bloody ugly, if an English chick is pretty be sure she has some Irish or Welsh background, and i’m not saying Irish and Welsh girls are the most beautiful girls in the world, i’m just saying they are prettier than English, and i’m from Liverpool by the way.

Marc February 12, 2011 at 12:19 am

Shut da fuck up! It’s You really 100% ugly!…and blind as well

Girls from British Islands or have some British ethnicity the most beautiful girl ih the world

dolphin March 16, 2011 at 5:53 pm

While there are more beauties in cinema who are Irish, Welsh, and/or Scottish, there are beautiful English women, too, and Jennifer Love Hewitt is a great example of that. She has a pretty face, and a body, that as a woman, I truly admire.

I am, however, surprised that she is only English. Most of these white celebrities are usually a blend of all sorts of European ethnicities, or they have someone in their bloodline who was Native American and/or African-American, especially if their family has been here for over a hundred years.

dolphin March 16, 2011 at 5:53 pm

Nevertheless, that certainly makes her unique, and she is a beautiful gal.

Fuzzybear March 17, 2011 at 3:02 am

Well as a man I can say I truly admire,lol.Now she might not know everything that she is.Sometime people just stick to the ethnicity that they know,for sure

Evanna Lynch isn’t British, she’s born and bred Irish! :D

Alice July 21, 2011 at 7:39 am

Cate Blanchett is an Aussie but a lot of those ladies you mentioned are a mixture of countries from the British Isles. Vivien Leigh has some Irish and English and possibly some Parsi. Naomi Watts is half Welsh and half English and Catherine Zeta Jones is half Welsh and half Irish. They are all a mix and I agree they are beautiful.

Angantyr September 8, 2011 at 2:32 am

Oh, you are from mini-Ireland. Your bias is showing, even though I agree with about women of Irish descent (Welsh, like Dutch etc. do not look that specially different from English people, though, other than being less ”chavvie”).

Andy August 25, 2010 at 3:22 pm

Another babe.

Roy August 25, 2010 at 2:55 pm

IMDB doesn’t know what the hell its talking about. They say that Val Kilmer is part Mongolian for christ sake. She could have a very distant German and Italian ancestor but both Shipp and Hewitt are as it suggests here, very English names. Plus, she comes from Texas. How many Italians live there?

Jess March 16, 2011 at 4:23 pm

There are a lot of people with Italian ancestry who live in the south, dumbass.

Robert March 17, 2011 at 7:20 pm

Just because your surname is English doesn’t mean you are of English descent. English surnames have frequently been taken on by all ethnicities in the USA for centuries.

http://www.texasalmanac.com/topics/culture/italian/italian-texans

Rockxxz August 18, 2010 at 7:45 pm

It’s know she is half italian, half german, and she looks like.
She has got the italian skin, and her face looks italian, she looks like Alyssa Milano who is a pure italian. Hewitt, looks german too, she is has that noble things, on her face , like somes germans.

Junior July 14, 2010 at 2:13 pm

Como on, shes not English at all, i think what Imdb says its true this page sucks.

rafa July 2, 2010 at 2:56 pm

not all the english are saxons

Angantyr September 8, 2011 at 2:33 am

True, some are Angles and Frisians!

Angantyr September 8, 2011 at 2:37 am

Joke, I know what you meant. I am from England, my family has lived there for centuries but I am hard pressed to find an ethnic English ancestor (I know I have some, though) being mostly Norse-Gaelic and Italian.

ilyxox June 28, 2010 at 3:43 am

yeah.. i’d thought that she would have some kind of Jewish in her.

Anoymous June 28, 2010 at 2:56 am

Hi, she’s half german and half italian according to idmb. http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0001349/bio
