While both of Lisa’s parents were born with non-English surnames, most of her ancestry is English. Lisa’s surname, Vanderpump, is said to be Dutch. However, her patrilineal family line has been in England since at least the mid 1700s. Lisa’s mother’s surname, Hillebrandt, originates with Lisa’s maternal great-great-great-grandfather, Kristoff “Christopher” Hillebrandt, a German immigrant.
Lisa is married to Ken Todd, with whom she has two children.
Lisa’s paternal grandfather was Horace Edward Vanderpump (the son of Thomas Jefferson Vanderpump and Jane Elizabeth Boswell). Thomas was the son of William Edward Vanderpump and Martha Jane Poynder.
Lisa’s paternal grandmother was Kathleen Dimond (the daughter of Edgar Owen Gregory Dimond and Charlotte Frank Smith). Edgar was the son of James Dimond.
Lisa’s maternal grandparents were Walter Henry Hillebrandt (the son of William Frederick Hillebrandt and Annie Lucy Bradley) and Doris I. Williamson.
