Dylan Lee is an American model. He was born in Malibu, California, to Greek-born American musician Tommy Lee and Canadian-American actress and model Pamela Anderson. Dylan’s brother is Brandon Thomas Lee.
Dylan’s paternal grandfather was David Oliver Bass (the son of John Samuel Bass and Julia E. Sanders). David was American, and had English, some Irish and French, and at least 1/1024 Powhatan Native American, ancestry. John was the son of Josiah J. Bass and Alice E. Oliver. Julia was the daughter of Henry A. Sanders, who was of French and Irish descent, and of May E. Patrick.
Dylan’s paternal grandmother is Vassiliki “Voula” Papadimitriou. Vassiliki is Greek.
Dylan’s maternal grandfather is Barry Anderson (the son of Herman Anderson and Marjorie Sherwood or Sherwin). Herman was of Finnish descent, and had family from Saarijärvi; he was the son of Juho Herman Hyytiäinen/Anderson and Rachel Evelyn Solmie. The surnames “Sherwood” or “Sherwin” are usually English.
Dylan’s maternal grandmother was Carol Grosco. Carol had Russian ancestry. One of her grandfathers was named Dale Jagger Grosco.
Dylan’s father is descended from John Bass, who was born in Suffolk, Virginia. John was the son of William Basse and Catherine/Katherine Lanier/Lanyere. William was the son of John Basse, an English immigrant, and of Elizabeth Nansemond, who was Native American, and a princess of the Nansemond tribe. Catherine’s ancestry is disputed. Some sources state that she too was a Nansemond Native American, while others say that she was born to English immigrants. While some genealogies list her as the daughter of John Lanier and Lucreece Bassano, this is not the case, as their only daughter, Katherine, died as an infant.
