The Sunday Mail (sundaymail.co.uk) has news of the actor Hugh Grant’s genealogy. According to the article, it was suprising for genealogist Anthony Adolph to discover that Grant (full name: Hugh John Mungo Grant) had Scottish ancestry. “When people imagine an Englishman they imagine Hugh Grant so it was a shock to find he is a Scotsman.”, said Adolph.
Excerpt from the article:
The 45-year-old’s great great-grandfather Dr James Stewart helped Dr David Livingstone explore Africa and his forefathers were Jacobite rebels who fought at the Battle of Culloden. Grant’s Scots roots were uncovered by genealogist Anthony Adolph.
