Nicholas Hoult

Birth Name: Nicholas Caradoc Hoult

Place of Birth: Reading & Wokingham, Berkshire, England, U.K.

Date of Birth: 7 December, 1989

Ethnicity: English

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 has a child with his partner, model Bryana Holly.

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 said to be a great-nephew of actress, singer, and dancer Anna Neagle (born Florence Marjorie Robertson). It is not clear through which line the two are related, or if the relation is biological.

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 grandfather Henry was born in Birmingham, Warwickshire. Nicholas’s great-grandfather Harry was the son of Thomas Hoult and Maria Tooth. Nicholas’s great-grandmother Mary Ann was the daughter of John Henshaw and Mary Ann Wright.

Nicholas’s paternal grandmother was Laura O. Godfrey (the daughter of Frederick J. Godfrey and Lilian R. Cornish). Laura was born in Aston, Warwickshire.

Nicholas’s maternal grandparents’ surnames were Brown and Pardoe.

When the IMDb message boards were around, they said his mother was Pakistani or Palestinian.

It was Palestinian. I don’t think I’ve heard Pakistani. It comes from someone adding Palestinian to his Wikipedia page around 2007, and then a magazine reprinting it.

Cant wait for ‘gel’ to say he’s secretly irish or something because he has blue eyes.

Ha, I agree. Blue eyes apparently makes a British person Irish. Brown eyes means they are Jewish or from the med. Blondish hair makes them German. It’s getting boring!

I doubt you have any better a handle on genealogy than you do on grammar, but if you somehow have some major insight into his heritage, why would you hold back with your sources?

ses101 April 10, 2017 at 5:28 am

Why do so many people on this site want to argue that British people aren’t British?

ses101 April 10, 2017 at 5:33 am

And for the record, Hugh Grant is mostly Scottish.
