Storm’s paternal grandfather was Alfred Max “Alf” Parkinson Uechtritz (the son of Peter Karl Gustav Uechtritz and Johanna Terese “Dolly” Parkinson). Alfred was born in Kokopo, East New Britain, Papua New Guinea. Peter was a German plantation owner, from Neumünster, Schleswig-Holstein, and was the son of Carl August Wilhelm Uechtritz and Anna Catharina Dittler. Storm’s great-grandmother Dolly’s father, Richard Parkinson (Richard Heinrich Robert Parkinson), was a Danish explorer and anthropologist, from Augustenborg, Sønderborg. Richard’s biological father is sometimes said to have been Christian August II, Duke of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Augustenburg, who was of European Royal descent. Richard’s mother, Louise Sophie Caroline Brüning, was of Danish, and one quarter German, descent. Duke Christian was the grandson by maternal line of King Christian VII of Denmark. Storm’s great-grandmother Dolly’s mother, Phebe Clothilde Coe, was the daughter of an American consul, Jonas Mynderse Coe, and of a Samoan princess, Le’utu (baptised Joana) Taletale Malietoa.
Storm’s paternal grandmother was Mary Louise “Mary Lou” Harris (the daughter of Charles Gordon Harris and Ursula Anderson). Mary Lou was an English emigrant, from Woolwich, London. Storm’s great-grandfather Gordon was the son of Charles Harris, who was English, and of Mary Moir, who was Scottish. Ursula was born in Barry, Vale of Glamorgan, Wales, the daughter of a Swedish mariner, Anders Andersson (later Andrew Anderson), and of an Irish emigrant, Louisa Trowell, of Inis Cathaigh, County Clare, whose own father was English.
Storm’s maternal grandfather was John Tynie Hastings (the son of Percy Victor Hastings and Mary Tynie). John was born in New Zealand. Percy was an English emigrant, from Caversham, Oxfordshire, and was the son of Alfred William Hastings and Ann “Annie” Ives. Storm’s great-grandmother Mary was a Scottish emigrant, from The Canongate, Edinburgh, and was the daughter of John Tynie and Winifred Carlin.
Storm’s maternal grandmother is the daughter of Harold Colson and Agnes Lilian Cullen. Harold was an English emigrant, from Brighton, and was the son of Thornton Edmonds Colson and Emily Honora “Norah” Mapple. Agnes was the daughter of a Scottish emigrant, Adam Cullen, and of Jane Stephenson Brown, whose own parents were Scottish.
Storm’s matrilineal line can be traced back to her third great-grandmother, Jane Stevenson, who was born in Ireland.
