Jake Bugg is an English singer, songwriter, and musician.

He has (at least some) ancestral roots in Nottinghamshire for centuries. He is the son of Leeysa Kennedy, who worked in sales, and David Bugg, a nurse. His parents had both released music recordings.

Jake’s paternal grandfather is Edwin Bugg (who likely is the son of Edward Bugg and Amy Lucy Etherington). Edwin was born in Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, England. Edward was the son of William Bugg and Elizabeth White, who was born in Glasgow, Scotland. Amy was the daughter of Robert Etherington and Sarah.

Jake’s paternal grandmother is named Colleen Duffy.

Jake’s maternal grandfather is Charles R. Kennedy (who likely is the son of Norman Kennedy and Emily Lowton). Charles was born in Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, England.

Jake’s maternal grandmother is Karen M. Thresher (the daughter of Alfred W. Thresher and Mary M. Jobson). Karen was born in Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, England. Alfred is the son of Alfred Thresher and Alice L. Smalley. Mary M. is the daughter of John E. “Jack” Jobson and Edna Annie Smithurst.

Jake’s matrilineal ancestry can be traced to his great-great-great-great-great-great-grandparents, Joseph Coleman, who was born, c. 1797, in Nottinghamshire, England, and to Joseph’s wife, Dorothy Buxton, who was born, c. 1802, in Derbyshire, England.
