    Tom Felton’s paternal grandfather Frederick A. Felton’s mother’s name was Florence Rossberg. Although she was born in England in 1886 could this indicate a distinctly German surname, or at very least non-English one?

      Interesting. How do you know you have the right person as his grandfather? Another ancestry-tree I can’t access?

      There are three Frederick A. Felton born around the right time in England, and the one with a Rossberg mother was born closest to where Tom’s grandparents married (often but not always a good clue), so it’s plausible he was Tom’s grandfather.

      There was a Florence Rossberg, born in 1885 in London, who had a German father.

        At least one of the public trees has Frederick A. Felton (1918) listed with Heather Wingfield (his spouse) and there his mother Florence Rossberg, but I believe I found it on a official record.

        • madman says:

          Does the tree mention Frederick’s father? I can’t find his parents’ marriage record anywhere. The Florence Rossberg in England married in 1909 but to someone else. I assume he was illegitimate, assuming everything is correct.

          On another note, it would be helpful if you always state your source when you comment, that way it’s easier for others to continue researching.

            No I don’t know Fredericks father and sure buddy, if you have any knowledge of Milo Yiannapolis btw I have been dying to know if the Jewish thing is true.

          • madman says:

            Milo’s mother’s maiden name is Baker and he has said that his mother is German. While I don’t know, or think, that she was from Germany (Baker just seems English), I do believe that there’s some German ancestral connection in some way. If he has Jewish ancestry or not is impossible for us even to speculate about.

    He reminds me of young Sean Penn sometimes
