Twiggy is an English model, actress, and singer.
Twiggy’s paternal grandparents were William Marbeck Hornby (the son of Peter Hornby and Harriet Ann Marbeck) and Annie Garvey (the daughter of James Garvey). Peter was the son of Peter Hornby and Sarah. Harriet was the daughter of William Marbeck and Ellen Marsh.
Twiggy’s maternal grandparents were Alfred Robert Reeman (the son of Alfred Reeman and Martha Palmer) and Alice Grace Meadows (the daughter of William Frederick Meadows and Elizabeth Austin). William was the son of William Meadows and Grace Gillies.
Twiggy has stated that her maternal grandfather was Jewish. However, Twiggy’s mother’s genealogy (also examined on the series Who Do You Think You Are? in 2014) does not contain Jewish ancestry. Twiggy’s great-grandfather Alfred was the son of Alfred Reeman and Emily Barfield. Twiggy’s great-grandmother Martha was the daughter of John Palmer and Eliza.
Twiggy’s “Reeman” line can be traced back to her great-great-great-great-great-grandparents, John Reeman, who was born, c. 1748, and Elizabeth Whitsted, who was born, c. 1752, both of them in Suffolk, England.
