Caleb Landry Jones is an American actor and musician. He has also been credited as Caleb Jones.
His middle name, Landry, is French, but it is unclear if Caleb has French ancestry.
Caleb’s maternal grandfather was Thomas Eugene Gwin (the son of Carl Windell/Wendell Gwin and Beulah/Beaulah Elizabeth Giesler). Thomas was born in New Mexico. Carl was the son of David Floriden/Floridan Gwin and Lora E. Shofner. Beulah was the daughter of Gilbert Augusta/Augustus Giesler and Cora May Ford.
Caleb’s maternal grandmother is Betty Jean Hill (the daughter of Sylvester Parks Hill and Ruth Frances Jennings). Betty was born in Texas. Sylvester was the son of William Park Hill and Ardella Virginia Webb. Ruth was likely the daughter of Worth Alston Jennings, Sr. and Eddie Johnson Vansant.
Caleb’s paternal grandparents likely were Bruce Warren Jones and Mary Jane.

Most likely his grandparents:
He’s the whitest white guy.
God, he’s pale.
Ethnic, picture please. :-)
Thank you! He looks like a young Willem Dafoe.
Dafoe is more ugly . His wife is Italian, for what it’s worth lol
He played Dafoe’s son in The Florida Project.
full Welsh probably
It is unlikely, after a likely 300 years in the United States. Basically the only way he could be full Welsh is if his parents were born there.
The “Landry” middle name is French and might indicate some Cajun roots.
agree, bit hard. But both surnames are Welsh. Landry is a middle name and it’s not ethnically relevant
I added more on his mother’s side. The name “Geisler” rules out a full Welsh family tree. Some lines on his ancestor’s tree go to England.
I know “Landry” is a middle name, but sometimes, especially in the American South, people use a grandmother’s or great-grandmother’s maiden name for someone’s middle name.
