Tom Ellis plays Gary, the love interest of Miranda Hart in the TV show Miranda. Tom is a Welsh-born actor with appearances in TV shows such as Merlin, The Catherine Tate show, EastEnders, Midsomer Murders, and the Secret of Crickley Hall. He is currently the spouse of Tamzin Outhwaite, and their union has yielded two young daughters. Although we usually trace the ancestry of an individual by following a direct male line, in this case, we will use alternative means because the paternal grandfather of Tom was a result of a pre-marital affair. We will examine the family tree of Tom Ellis.
In spite of this minor obstacle, we can still accomplish our objective by examining a female line because the surname remains unchanged after all. Tom Ellis birthname is Thomas John Ellis, and his birth date is recorded as seventeenth November 1978 in Cardiff, South Wales. In addition to his twin sister, he has two more female siblings, and they were raised by his parents Marilyn Jean Hooper and John Ellis. John Ellis was a young practising Baptist minister when he got married to his wife, a nineteen-year-old student, on 30 December 1972.
Their marriage certificate reveals that the father of Chris Ellis was an officer of the law while the father of Marilyn was a telegraph and postal official known as Arthur Melbourne Hooper. The birth date of Chris was 29 June 1949. He was the child of Joyce Doreen Jones and John Ellis who took their marital vows at Pontyclun, close to Bridgend, Glamorgan on the fifteenth of August in the year 1942. John Ellis’ birth date is recorded 7th November 1921. He was born in the district of Pontypridd, and he was the son of Emmie Ellis, whose father remains unknown.
Emmie originated from the village of Llanharan in the valley of Rhondda near Bridgend. Records show that she possibly remained unmarried in her whole life and passed away at the age of 85 in the year 1982. Close scrutiny of the 1911 census reveals that she lived with her six brothers and sisters with ages ranging from 29 to 11 in living quarters that were managed by their eldest male kin known as Claude Ellis. Their eldest brother made a living as a potter in Pontyclun. Subsequent investigations of records in the General registrar office show that the matriarch of the family died in 1906, at the age of 46.
