Prime Minister Cameron’s paternal grandfather was Ewen Donald Cameron (the son of Ewen Allan Cameron and Rachel Margaret Geddes). Prime Minister Cameron’s great-grandfather Ewen was born in Shanghai, China, the son of Sir Ewen Cameron, from Invernessshire, Scotland, and of Josephine Elizabeth Houchen, from Shotford, Norfolk, England. Rachel was born in Chicago, Illinois, United States, to a Scottish father, Alexander Geddes, and Frances R. Sharp.

Prime Minister Cameron’s paternal grandmother was Enid Agnes Maud Levita (the daughter of Arthur Francis Levita and Stephanie Agnes Cooper). Arthur was born in Manchester, England. Arthur’s father, Emile George Charles Levita, was a German Jewish financier, from Mainz, Rhineland-Palatinate, who obtained British citizenship in 1871, and was a banker; Arthur’s mother, Katherine/Chatrine Plumridge Rée, was born in Rusholme, Manchester, of Danish Jewish/German Jewish and English descent. Prime Minister Cameron’s great-grandmother Stephanie was the daughter of Sir Alfred Cooper and Lady Agnes Cecil Emmeline Duff.

Prime Minister Cameron’s maternal grandfather was Sir Willam Malcolm Mount, 2nd Bart (the son of Sir William Arthur Mount, 1st Bart, and of Hilda Lucy Adelaide Low).

Through his paternal grandmother, Enid Agnes Maud Levita, Prime Minister Cameron is a lineal descendant of King William IV by his mistress Dorothea Bland, an Irish actress known on stage as Mrs. Jordan. It is through this union that Prime Minister Cameron is related to the royal family; he is a fifth cousin once removed of Queen Elizabeth.

Through his Rée lines, Prime Minister Cameron descends from the same Danish Jewish ancestors as actor James Norton. The line leads back to Hirsch Isac Rée, who was born c. 1671.
