Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is a British model and actress. She is the daughter of Fiona (Jackson) and Charles Huntington-Whiteley.
Rosie’s father is of three quarters Ashkenazi Jewish (with some Sephardi Jewish), and one quarter English, background. Rosie’s mother is likely of English ancestry. Rosie’s paternal grandparents both had funerals in churches, so it is possible that they had practiced Christianity.
Rosie’s paternal grandfather was Nigel Charles Huntington-Whiteley (the son of Eric Arthur Huntington-Whiteley and Enid Etta Cohn/Kohn). Rosie’s great-grandfather Eric was of English (non-Jewish) background, and was the son of Sir Herbert James Huntington-Whiteley, 1st Baronet, a Conservative politician, and of Florence Kate Huntington. Rosie’s great-grandmother Enid was Jewish, from a family of Polish Jewish immigrants to England, and was the daughter of Solly Cohn and Annie Stump.
Rosie’s paternal grandmother was Gillian Margaret Franks (the daughter of Jacob Franks and Janatt/Janet Lily/Lilian Green). Gillian’s parents were both Jewish. Jacob was the son of Emanuel Garemmatz/Franks and Raina/Raynor/Raine Da Costa Fonrega, who were Dutch Jews. The names “Da Costa” and “Fonrega” almost certainly indicate at least some Sephardi Jewish ancestry. Janatt was the daughter of English Jews, Jacob Green, from London, and Amelia Levine, from Middlesex.
Rosie’s maternal grandfather was Alan Jackson, and Rosie’s maternal grandmother’s maiden name was “Wilson”. Rosie’s mother is likely of English ancestry.
