Mike Myers is a Canadian-born actor, comedian, screenwriter, and film producer. His parents, Alice E. (Hind) and Eric R. Myers, were both English, born in West Derby, Liverpool, and moved to Canada. He also has some Welsh ancestry. Mike was raised as an Anglican.

Mike is sometimes described as also being of Irish and Scottish descent. It is not clear exactly which of his ancestors were Irish and/or Scottish.

Mike’s paternal grandparents were John Myers (the son of Phillip Myers and Mary Atherton) and Amy Laugharne (the daughter of William Laugharne and Mary Eleanor Willan). Amy was born in West Derby, and was said to have been of part Welsh ancestry.

Mike’s maternal grandparents were Matthew Hind (the son of Matthew Hind and Alice) and Alice Boote (the daughter of John Breden Boote and Eliza Jane Wordsworth). John was the son of John Boote, whose mother was Welsh, and of Martha Jane Corns. Eliza was the daughter of John Fawcett Wordsworth and Jane Eliza Radcliffe.
