Are You Related To Johnny Depp?

Posted by Jean-Yves on Jun 9, 2018
 

Depp was born on June 9, 1963, in Owensboro, Kentucky, the youngest of four children of Betty Sue Palmer (née Wells; 1935–2016), a waitress, and John Christopher Depp (born 1938), a civil engineer. Depp is of mostly English ancestry, with some ancestors from elsewhere in Europe. He is descended from a French Huguenot immigrant, Pierre Deppe or Dieppe, who settled in Virginia around 1700. He is also of 3/2048 African descent, as he descends twice over from an African slave whose biracial daughter, Elizabeth Key Grinstead, was the first woman of Sub-Saharan African ancestry in North America to sue for her freedom from slavery and win (in 1655).
