Ross Lynch is an American singer, songwriter, actor, and musician. He is a member of the band R5, with his siblings, Riker Lynch (Riker Anthony Lynch), Rocky Lynch (Rocky Mark Lynch), and Rydel Lynch (Rydel Mary Lynch), as well as with Ellington Ratliff (not a sibling).

Ross is a second cousin of actors and dancers Derek Hough and Julianne Hough. Their maternal grandmothers are sisters.

Ross’s paternal grandfather had the surname Lynch.

Ross’s paternal grandmother was Florence Eva Potts (the daughter of Andrew Dean Potts and Margaret Lauice/Louise Jonas). Florence was born in North Dakota. Andrew was the son of John David Potts and Katie Darling Gregory. Margaret was the daughter of Alexander Jonas and Marianna Gratz, who were both ethnic Germans from Russia.

Ross’s maternal grandfather is Lee Anthony de St. Jeor (the son of Waldo Francis de St. Jeor and Owanna Lee Gosnell). Waldo was the son of Waldo Luke de St. Jeor and Pearley Francis Lefler. Owanna was the daughter of Harry Gosnell and Mary Thelma Powell.

Ross’s maternal grandmother is Mary Jeanettes Young (the daughter of Phares Philip Young and Thelma Frandsen). Phares was the son of Alfred Phillip Young and Jeanette/Janet Holden Millward. Thelma was the daughter of Thomas Christian Frandsen, who was born in Grenaa, Rndrs, Denmark, and of Mary Elizabeth Haycock.

Ross’s matrilineal ancestry can be traced back to his great-great-great-great-great-great-great-grandmother, Elizabeth Watson, who was born, c. 1739, in England, possibly in Lincoln.

musicfangirl November 25, 2015 at 5:13 pm

celebfan September 6, 2015 at 9:22 pm

Is his hair bleached? He has brown eyes, which is unusual among people with natural blonde hair.

sarahle September 6, 2015 at 9:53 pm

no, his natural hair color is the same like his eyebrows .

He looks Danish.

ihatemostpeople March 10, 2014 at 5:27 am

Something about him screams “mixed”. He does not look 100% white.

@ andrew

I don’t know why you’re upset.You’re quick to suggest european bloodlines,anytime a black person skin color is anything other charcoal.However the second a european is mention as anything other than pure,you get your panties in a bunch.I’m looking at this pic here:
and I can see it’s possible,not that I’m saying he is

He looks just like Judd Apatow.

andrew April 10, 2014 at 6:56 am

it’s ridiculous, I’m not upset. He has common Euro look.

fuzzybear44 April 11, 2014 at 3:16 am


(He has common Euro look.)

Yeah a common Euro look.Just like all these others who happen to be part black

andrew April 11, 2014 at 5:36 am

all whites..

fuzzybear44 April 11, 2014 at 6:16 am

Yes all white in appearance,but part black at the same time.So what ( ihatemostpeople) stated was not ridiculous.

@Fuzzybear44 you are soo CORRECT, Andrew has major issues because he is always mixing black people up and acting like white people cannot be mixed. Whites ar enot 100% pure. When I saw this guy on tv he seemed mixed with something on-white to me to. I bet if he took a dna test there would be some other race dna. His features look influenced by something non-white he does not look like a Nordic blonde for sure.

midori29 August 31, 2016 at 6:19 am

@Fuzzybear, @Andrew Check out this pic of Paula Patton and Robin Thicke’s son who is blonde and 25% African or 1/4th he kind of looks like him

snyair March 17, 2014 at 2:51 am

Lol what? This boy looks 100% european.

midori29 April 9, 2014 at 6:53 pm

I thought so too, something looks Mexican or Africa like 15%

ihatemostpeople March 10, 2014 at 5:26 am

His nose is a little wide. Maybe he has distant black blood in him.

andrew March 11, 2014 at 6:25 am


Petrarca March 6, 2014 at 2:49 pm

He looks italian.

davidcathers February 21, 2014 at 7:40 pm

He also has distant Canadian ancestry.

Ross Lynch looks like a young, blond (dyed), Judd Apatow.

J.J. January 26, 2014 at 6:00 pm

correction; his eyes are forest green (green w brown) and his hair is light brown (Brunet) (dyed blonde)

smiley February 6, 2014 at 1:12 am

His eyes don’t look green in that picture.

J.J. February 6, 2014 at 2:28 am
