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. Emile’s grandfather, Prime Minister Cameron’s great-great-great-great-grandfather Israel Bär Isaak Heinrich Beer/Baer/Levita, was a rabbi. Prime Minister Cameron’s great-grandfather 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 Cooper was born in Henrietta Street, London, England, the daughter of Sir Alfred Cooper and Lady Agnes Cecil/Cecile Emmeline Duff, who had significant Scottish ancestry.

Prime Minister Cameron’s maternal grandfather was Sir William Malcolm Mount, 2nd Baronet Mount of Wasing (the son of Sir William Arthur Mount, 1st Baronet Mount of Wasing, and of Hilda Lucy Adelaide Low). Prime Minister Cameron’s great-grandfather William was born in Hartley, Hampshire, England, and was the son of William George Mount and Marianne Emily Clutterbuck. Hilda was born in Kensington, Middlesex, England, the daughter of William Malcolm Low, who was born in Lucknow, India, and was a Conservative party politician, and Member of Parliament; and of Lady Ida Matilda Alice Feilding.

Through his paternal grandmother, Enid Agnes Maud Levita, Prime Minister Cameron is a five times great-grandson of William IV, King of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, and of 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.
