Justin Timberlake

by ethnic on August 30, 2008

Birth Name: Justin Randall Timberlake

Place of Birth: Memphis, Tennessee, U.S.

Date of Birth: January 31, 1981

Ethnicity: English (mostly), as well as some Irish, Scottish, and Welsh, distant Dutch, French, German, and Jersey/Channel Islander

Justin Timberlake is an American dancer, singer, songwriter, director, actor, and record producer. He was a member of the boy band NSYNC, with Lance Bass, JC Chasez, Joey Fatone, and Chris Kirkpatrick. He is married to actress Jessica Biel, with whom he has a son.

Justin is the son of Randall Timberlake and Lynn (Bomar) Harless. He is of mostly English, some Irish, Scottish, and Welsh, and distant Dutch, French, German, and Jersey (Channel Islander), ancestry.

There is a claim that Justin is a descendant of Henry Timberlake, an explorer born in Virginia, c. 1730, who had apparently had children with a Native American woman. The publicly available family trees of Justin Timberlake, however, show him to be a patrilineal descendant of Richard Timberlake, who was born, c. 1736, in Lancaster County, Virginia. Justin is thus not a descendant of Henry Timberlake (at least through that line).

Justin’s patrilineal line traces back to Francis Timberlake, who was born, c. 1687, in London, England.

Justin’s paternal grandfather is Charles L. Timberlake (the son of John Denham Timberlake and Gladys Lucille Martin). John was the son of Charles Mitchell Timberlake and Eva J. Pirtle. Gladys was the daughter of Colley Edward Martin and Sarah Virginia “Sallie” Hargrove.

Justin’s paternal grandmother is Bobbye/Bobby Joice Williams (the daughter of Robert Lee Williams and Katherine Heneritta “Katie” Morris). Robert was the son of Robert Lee Williams and Annilee Sullivan. Katherine was the daughter of Clarence Morris and Frances Arnold.

Justin’s maternal grandfather was William “Bill” Silas Bomar (the son of Silas Bryant Bomar and Lois Aileen McCraw). Justin’s great-grandfather Silas was the son of Robert Lee Bomar and Martha Jane “Mattie” Lumpkin. Lois was the daughter of William Gabriel/Gabrielle McCraw and Allie Blanche Bomar.

Justin’s maternal grandmother is Sadie Lee Timbs (the daughter of Clarence Andrew Timbs/Timms and Susan Florence Joyner). Clarence was the son of James Samuel Timbs/Timms and Lelia Eva Stocks. Susan was the daughter of Levi Ellis/V. “Lee” Joyner and Annie Demetra George.

His nose is not Italian or black, it is germanic
look at Marlene dietrich nose: https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/8/89/Marlene_Dietrich_in_Israel_%281960%29_%28Cropped%29.png

lol there is no such thing as a “germanic nose” how can you be so certain of what a germanic nose is? There are no pure Germanic nations today. All of them have substantial mediterranean and even slavic influence. Germanic nations are no more pure than any other and their phenotypes vary because of it. Germanics of old would have looked much more rougher featured than todays Germanics who have undergone substantial gracilization from mediterranean influence.

Hey follers, I’ve got a question

tttyyy July 23, 2015 at 8:19 am

Did the Vikings ever settle in Sclat, Germany

tttyyy July 22, 2015 at 9:24 pm

I mean through Vikings they’re norwegian, or in another way.

tttyyy July 22, 2015 at 9:23 pm

Do you think that everybody is descended from Norwegians, vikings

cwm85 July 15, 2015 at 3:43 pm

At first I thought he was part black… LOL

tttyyy July 14, 2015 at 11:01 pm

My friend is full German with bits of polish,and not descended from royalty, but he really wants to be distant Norwegian or another ethnicity. His great-grandmother’s name is Margaret Steiner born August 8, 1876 in Holzheim, Baden-Württemberg, Germany. Her parents are Johann Georg Steiner (1847-??) and Ursula Koezle (1849-1926). Margaret married Gustave Muerder, and died in New York on an unknown date. Follers or anybody please find out if she is distant anything (Norwegian, French, Danish, etc.) or descended from royalty.

tttyyy July 15, 2015 at 1:14 pm

Please he is threatening me

tttyyy July 15, 2015 at 4:32 pm

Hey is anybody good at finding this because he really wants to know and all I found was that Margaret Steiner was German

In a bravo interview when N SYNC promoted their GONE video 2001 or 2002 there was written that he has also native american roots and it was named with CHEROKEE

why now he denies this ?

look at this face and curly hair. Of course there is something not european

andrew July 15, 2015 at 3:33 pm

Native Americans don’t have curly hair, Europeans can.

pookerella October 16, 2016 at 3:12 pm

He is implying that he has African heritage.

Taurus1 May 29, 2017 at 7:40 pm

Of course Justin has African heritage, but it doesn’t make him non-white. Everyone has African heritage to some degree, we all came from Africa. The first fossils of Homo Sapiens have been found in Ethiopia, Sub-Saharan Africa. No one is 100% Eurpean.

truegattaca September 2, 2017 at 10:31 pm

Most Europeans don’t have African admixture when they do DNA test.

Taurus1 February 20, 2018 at 8:00 am

Trugattaca If the first human beings appeared in Sub-Saharan Africa, it is a logical consequence that absolutely everybody has African ancestry to some degree. First human beings where not Europeans but sub-Saharan Africans. Later they migrated out of Africa. DNA test are innacurate if the say you only have European ancestry. No one can have European ancestry only.

truegattaca September 2, 2017 at 10:32 pm

Curly hair is not rare in Europeans.

cdonorab May 25, 2015 at 9:20 am

Correction. He also has some French ancestry as well. His father’s grandmother had ancestors born in the 1650s who came.from France.

theropod April 1, 2015 at 7:58 am

There is something about his nose and curly hair that give off a Jewish or Italian vibe. Surprised that he is full Northern European.

andrew May 25, 2015 at 2:53 pm

deal with it asap

stonelord June 3, 2015 at 2:17 pm

Curly haair is pretty common in Ireland and Wales

I never thought once he was part black and if he was and knew it, I certain he would claim it. I thought he may be more native American than anything else, with his curly hair, or part jewish with curly hair. But certainly not with african ancestry…Timberlake surname kinda gave the native American thought for me.

truegattaca September 2, 2017 at 10:33 pm

Native Americans don’t have curly hair. Curly hair is more common in Europeans.

ShawntheGod July 27, 2014 at 6:21 pm

Lol people assume he’s part black, such bullshit.

Check7t March 22, 2014 at 9:42 pm

Typical Keltic-Nordic, looks very British in my opinion.

Sounds about right.

Joe January 22, 2014 at 2:56 pm

Why’s everyone tripping on his curly hair… have you never seen an irish person with curly hair? I think that could explain it… Angela B… curly hair is NOT a native trait. They have hair like asians; plain ol straight unless mixed.

andrew January 23, 2014 at 6:01 am

actually there are a lot of Irish or British people with fair curly hair, while people with darker hair use to have straight texture

stonelord June 3, 2015 at 2:19 pm

Red hair is often curly…but the nmost common hair colour in Britain is brown (Dark brown for Ireland) and curls are not uncommon, especially in the celtic areas. Mine’s wavy/dark brown
