Nicholas Hoult is an English actor. He is the son of Glenis J. (Brown), who was born in Rochford, Essex, and Roger K. Hoult, who was born in Birmingham, West Midlands.
Nicholas’s middle name, “Caradoc”, means “the beloved one” in Welsh, and is the name of a legendary Welsh monarch and Knight of the Round Table. It is not clear if Nicholas himself has Welsh ancestry.
Nicholas is the great-nephew of actress, singer, and dancer Anna Neagle (born Florence Marjorie Robertson). It is not clear precisely through which line the two are related.
Nicholas’s patrilineal ancestry can be traced back to his great-great-great-great-grandparents, Joseph Hoult, who was born, c. 1815, in Staffordshire, England, and Mary Ann Yardley, who was born, c. 1816, also in Staffordshire, to Thomas Yardley and Rebecca Gibbons.
Nicholas’s paternal grandfather was Henry Hoult (the son of Harry/Henry Hoult and Mary Ann Wright). Nicholas’s great-grandfather Harry was the son of Thomas Hoult and Maria Tooth.
Nicholas’s paternal grandmother was Laura O. Godfrey (the daughter of Frederick J. Godfrey and Lilian R. Cornish).
Nicholas’s maternal grandparents’ surnames were “Brown” and “Pardoe”.
