Manny Montana

by stlucas on April 16, 2017

Place of Birth: Long Beach, California, U.S.

Date of Birth: September 12, 1983

Ethnicity: Mexican (Spanish, some Indigenous, and Irish)

Manny Montana is an American actor. His parents are Mexican.

Manny has stated:

I’m first generation Mexican-American, with a lot of Spanish, Native American, and Irish blood in me. At first my family didn’t know what to make of my career choice. They were always supportive but would always say things like, ‘Make sure you have a side job or make sure you have a back up plan.’ As the years progressed that slowly changed to, ‘oh OK, keep it up maybe one day you’ll get a break.’ Now if you ask anyone in my family what I do for a living the answer is a simple, ‘he’s an actor.’ And that is something I’m extremely proud of.

Jaydy’s patrilineal ancestry can be traced back to her third great-grandfather, Guadalupe Michel.

Juan was the son of Leonardo Michel Betancourt and María del Refugio Sanjuán Gil. Micaela was the daughter of Luis Gonzaga Martínez Ledesma and Nicolasa Arreola Rodríguez. Nicolasa’s parents, José Lino Arreola Cortés and María Petra de los Ángeles Rodríguez Ángel, were listed as “mulatto” and “mestiza”, respectively, on their marriage record.

Jaydy’s paternal grandmother was María del Rosario Peiro Castro (the daughter of José Estanislao Peiro Orrantia and Rafaela Castro Inzunza). Jaydy’s grandmother María were classified as “blanca” (white) respectively on her marriage record. Estanislao was the son of José Melesio Peiro Castro and María Isabel Gumecinda Orrantia Inzunza. Rafaela was the daughter of Juan Exequiel Castro López and María Pánfila Altagracia Inzunza Sánchez.

Jaydy’s maternal grandfather was Elsworth Willis Brixon (the son of Alfred Reinhardt Brickson, later Brixon, and of Gova Willis). Alfred was the son of Norwegian immigrant Ingebrigt Thorstensen Lahd (later Albert Thomas Brickson), of Hafslo, Sogn og Fjordane, and of Mathilda Johanna Dolen, whose parents, Olavus Jensen Døhlen, later Dolen, and Anne Marie Olsdatter Holte, were also Norwegian immigrants, from Nannestad, Akershus. Gova was the daughter of English immigrant Walter Willis, of Faccombe, Hampshire, and of Achsa Cornelia Gifford.

Jaydy’s maternal grandmother was Dorothy Marie Brady (the daughter of Patrick Lawrence Brady and Marie Desanges Almeria Carrier). Patrick was orphaned at an early age, and was the son of Irish immigrants. Almeria was born in Sainte-Agathe-de-Lotbinière, Quebec, Canada, to Joseph Théophil Lebrun dit Carrier and Marie Léa Béland. Joseph was the sixth great-grandson of Zacharie Cloutier (c. 1590-1677), a prominent early Quebec settler.

Jaydy’s matrilineal ancestry can be traced back to her tenth great-grandmother, Renée Armange, of Angers, Anjou (now Maine-et-Loire department), France.
