Her siblings are her twin Tia Mowry-Hardrict, and younger brothers Tavior and Tahj Mowry. Her father, Timothy, is white, and has English, and some Irish, ancestry, and her mother, Darlene, is black, of African-Bahamian descent.

Tamera is said to be descended from Roger Mowrey, who was born, c. 1610, in Herne Hill, London, Middlesex, England.

Tamera’s maternal grandmother was Cloreta/Clo Flowers (the daughter of Raleigh/Riley Flowers and Cecelia/Cecile Campbell). Cloreta was born in Florida, to Bahamian parents. Cecelia was from Eleuthera.
