Birth Name: Tobias Vincent Maguire

Place of Birth: Santa Monica, Los Angeles, California, United States

Date of Birth: June 27, 1975

Ethnicity: Irish, English, 1/8th Austrian, 1/8th Puerto Rican, 1/16th Danish, 1/16th French, 1/32 German

Tobey Maguire is an American actor and producer. He is known for starring as Peter Parker/Spider-Man in the first series of feature films about the character (from 2002 to 2007).

Tobey is the son of Wendy (Brown) and Vincent Maguire. His father has Irish, 1/4 Austrian, 1/4 Puerto Rican, 1/8th Danish, and 1/8th French, ancestry.

He has two children with his former wife, jewelry designer Jennifer Meyer. Jennifer’s father is entertainment executive Ronald Meyer.

Tobey’s paternal grandfather likely is Albert E. Maguire (the son of Albert E. Maguire and Charlotte Marie Hansen). Tobey’s great-grandfather Albert was the son of Charles Francis Maguire, whose parents were Irish, and of Louise Marie Lospitalier, whose parents were French. Charlotte was the daughter of Frederick “Fred” Waldemar Hansen, whose parents were Danish, and of Leonia/Leona/Lena A. Malloy, who had Irish and German ancestry.

Tobey’s paternal grandmother is the daughter of Bartholomeus/Barth Kropfl and Ana/Anna G. Benjamin. Bartholomeus was an Austrian emigrant, who was born in Hohenthurn, Villach-Land, Carinthia, and was the son of Bartholomeus Kropfl, from Draschitz, Villach-Land, and of Luzia Kugi, who was born in Hohenthurn. Ana was born in Isabela, Puerto Rico.

Tobey’s maternal grandparents possibly are Kenneth B. Brown and Margaret Joan Bathurst.

>On his father’s side, Tobey is the grandson of Albert E. Maguire (the son of Albert E. Maguire and Charlotte Marie Hansen) and Elsie T.
>Tobey’s paternal grandmother was born with the surname “Kropfl”.

So, is his grandmother’s name Elsie Kropfl or am I misunderstanding this?

You know, I guess so.

This apparently isn’t her, though it would have made sense:

I wish had written out clearer information when saying that Maguire has Austrian and Puerto Rican ancestry.

Frankly, I would like better and more detailed genealogy on all three major Spider-Man actors. I did manage to use The Jewish Chronicle online archives to dig out quite a bit on Andrew Garfield’s father’s side that would have been harder to find anywhere else.

Tom Holland’s ancestry needs some more work, and I’m uncertain about all of Maguire’s roots.

I’ve got such detailed roots on the Supermans and Batmans in comparison that it seems unjust.

*Irish, French, Danish, 1/8th German (paternal grandfather)
*Austrian, Puerto Rican (paternal grandmother)
*English, possibly other (mother)

Toby’s father’s ancestry is one quarter Austrian, one quarter Puerto Rican, three sixteenths Irish, one eighth French, one eighth Danish, and one sixteenth German. His mother’s has mostly English ancestry.

I don’t know… What I know of his mother’s ancestry is so vague that I don’t necessarily want to separate it. His father’s side is vague, too. I’m only going based on this, and I’d like more information on that side, too.

madman June 12, 2016 at 2:43 pm

His fathers side seems to be well documented, with all lines traced beyond the (mainland) United States.

follers June 12, 2016 at 2:48 pm

But his mother’s side… and his paternal grandmother still confuses me. This is one actor that needs a good family tree made of them.

His parents are Vincent Maguire and Wendy Brown.

bakchoyhurl February 6, 2016 at 11:18 am

What are people going on about? He barely has any puerto rican in him, I wouldn’t even count it at that point.

savanna February 6, 2016 at 11:37 am

He is 1/8th Puerto Rican or ~12.5%.. I would not refer to that as “barely”.

Maguire is a name from Fermanagh in modern Northern Ireland, for some reason Northern Ireland is only mentioned on here if someone has scotch-irish descent, there is more to n.ireland than the Ulster Scots.
Some other examples of northern irish surnames are Donnelly, O’Kane, o’neill, McGuinness, O’Hanlon, Mulgrew, McDonnell, McCann, McLaughlin, Cassidy

aaa February 1, 2014 at 1:18 pm

wow,he looks so white,I never thought he was part puerto rican(black,native american,spanish)

andrew February 1, 2014 at 5:19 pm

there are whites in the island

aaa February 1, 2014 at 5:45 pm

yes,but very few,like blacks,only about 5%

melkyji June 1, 2014 at 6:33 am

not very few, about half puertoricans are white.

ME June 9, 2014 at 11:00 pm

white for you must be someone who has fair skin,search for the meaning of the white race. And put here the proof of these “half puerto ricans” who have FULLY european ancestry

slowdive January 31, 2016 at 2:49 pm

About 75% of Puerto Ricans identify as white in Puerto Rico. However this isn’t accurate as genetic studies show the average Puerto Rican is basically a quadroon with Native ancestry.

“We estimated the genetic ancestry of 1129 subjects from the Boston Puerto Rican Health Study, based on genotypes of 100 ancestry informative markers (AIMs). We examined the effects of ancestry on tests of association between single AIMs and disease traits. The ancestral composition of this population was 57.2% European, 27.4% African, and 15.4% Native American. ”

However the Native seems a bit high as I didn’t Puerto Ricans had that much Taino ancestry.

bablah February 1, 2016 at 5:25 am

It says BOSTON Puerto Rican Health Study. If what I’m told is true, Afro- Puerto Ricans make up a larger percentage of Puerto Rican diaspora in the mainland US, than in the island itself which could skew the data a bit, so while it’s true that their genetic composition is not purely white, it still is mostly white as the census shows. I don’t see why a person that’s 80% white wouldn’t consider themselves white.

My fucking ass he’s part Hispanic. He looks like a plain white guy.

fbwfeiwb January 12, 2014 at 1:00 am

Oh my god, he’s only one eighth! Of course he looks white. You know, you can get Puerto Ricans that are of mostly ‘White’ Spanish ancestry..

ashash October 29, 2014 at 5:20 pm

Yeah, he’s only 1/8th Puerto Rican. Why would they be shocked that he looks white?

stonelord June 11, 2015 at 8:55 am

his ‘hispanic’ ancestry is probably at leastin part from SPAIN. Europe. White.

Alice November 27, 2013 at 7:06 pm

The comment above that Maguire can be Irish is silly. It is Irish and only Irish.

rajaredhilu November 27, 2013 at 1:27 pm

woah didnt know spidey was latino

native american January 6, 2014 at 9:42 pm

he is part, not 100%.

Me myself and I June 10, 2013 at 1:07 pm

Hey follers,
nothing I’ll say is related to Tobey, but I wanted to hear your opinion on Paris and Prince I Jackson, since everyone’s dashing about them.


rickyflo June 10, 2013 at 2:06 pm

Follers, he is not Hispanic ethnicity because he has all the rest of the other ethnicities. He is Caucasian, and his closest friend is actually a famous actor that everyone knows and Caucasian. He is the first Caucasian with the hispanic heritage to be on spiderman, but He was not raised at all latino and hispanic since he is raised around caucasians

Me myself and I June 10, 2013 at 8:22 pm

Hispanic is a lingual culture/ethnicity! There are white Hispanics, black Hispanics, mestizo, NA etc etc and Tobey is white Hispanic. A white that has ancestors in a Spanish speaking country. Dammit get some education. And so what? My best friend is black, I’m still not black myself!

melkyji June 1, 2014 at 6:38 am

every other Latino is Caucasian too. travel a little more, Argentina, Uruguay has more white people in percentage of their population than the United States, places like Chile and Costa Rica it’s about 80 percent of their people are white. places like Puerto Rico and Cuba about 50% of their people are white, even Mexico about 30 % of their population are white. people need to travel a bit more because they talk without knowing anything.

Me myself and I June 10, 2013 at 8:19 pm

More like do you believe that they’re MJ’s kids?

fuzzybear44 June 11, 2013 at 4:23 am


(No, I definitely don’t think they are his biological children. It’s physically pretty much impossible, given that Michael Jackson, if you rewind the tape far back enough, was really a black man.)

I seriously have to disagree with you on this.
Mike was a black American,it wasn’t like he was part of the Dinka tribe.So for him to have white kids,from white woman(imo are about 35-50%).I can tell I have more experience than you do with this.I have a white niece,and little white 2nd cousins,from this type of union.Now granted, both sides of my families are Creoles,so there is a higher chance(when mixed with new white boood).However this still happens,this brings me back to(Jamila Wideman)her Dad is black,yet she’s white(as far as we know,he’s her bio dad).Then what about someone like Eartha Kitt,her daughter is white.Should we believe that’s not Eartha daughter,because Eartha is black.When you have blk/white unions of this type,your rolling the dice

Now granted,I didn’t think they were mike’s bio kid either,but for a different reason.
