Australian pop star Kylie Minogue’s roots have been traced all the way back to the town of Thornbury, England, but her relatives were not all quite so well behaved.
The ever-popular singer’s great-great grandfather appeared at Thornbury Magistrates’ Court 120 years ago on charges of indecent assault, reports in a national newspaper have claimed.
Morgan Riddiford lived in the village in the 1890s, with his widowed mother Sarah and two sisters, according to the genealogy website Findmypast.com.
Born in 1875, he was brought before the South Gloucestershire court when he was just 16 years old, along with 18-year-old co-defendant William Sainsbury.
