Timothy Dalton is a British actor. He is known for portraying James Bond in The Living Daylights and Licence to Kill. His other roles include the films The Lion in Winter, The Doctor and the Devils, The Rocketeer, Hot Fuzz, and Time Share, and television’s Jane Eyre (1983), Scarlett, and Doom Patrol.
Timothy was born in Aled, Denbighshire, Wales, to Dorothy and Peter Dalton-Leggett. His father was English. His mother is described on the internet as being an American of Irish and Italian descent. It is not clear if this claim is accurate. Other sources list his mother as having been born in Oldham, England. Timothy has a son with his former partner, Russian singer, songwriter, and pianist Oksana Grigorieva.
Timothy’s paternal grandfather was Albert Joseph Leggett (the son of Charles Leggett and Emily Wallduck). Albert was born in Surrey. Charles was the son of George Leggett and Caroline Hudson. Emily was the daughter of Robert Wallduck/Walduck and Rose Ann Stone.
Timothy’s paternal grandmother was Amelia Vokes Hodgkiss (the daughter of Robert Hodgkiss and Rosina Lisimore/Lissmore). Rosina was the daughter of William Lissemore/Lisimore/Lissmore and Priscilla Bindley.
Timothy’s maternal grandfather’s surname is Scholes.

“His mother is described on the internet as being an American of Irish and Italian descent.”
She wasn’t born in America to say the least and she wasn’t of recent Irish and/or Italian ancestry.
Mother: Dorothy Joan Scholes (1924-1998), the daughter of William Scholes and Fanny Walker. William was the son of Thomas Scholes and Hannah G. Isherwood. Fanny was the daughter of Margaret and William Walker. All these ancestors appear to be English.
How do you know this is the right famiy? It’s been proposed already but hasn’t been proven.
@Follers, big favor. can you confirm by submissions and bring back ethnic connect so us less famous people can share our ethnicity?
oh and please don’t monitor/block out muricansareallmutts, mine, and other comments. It makes the average bear/boy sad :-(
You are not like that clown.
How are you, Andrew? Hope you’re doing well.
The claim of the American mother doesn’t seem to be true, and neither the italian ancestry…
She is British then?
It seems so, but the family doesn’t say much, only that Timothy maternal grandparents married in Lancashire and had British names.
Is there any proof in the family tree that these are the right grandparents?
I read his mother was born in Long Island, NY.
The Welsh might dispute that!
