Jerry Hall

Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine - - NEW SERIES REVEALED -

One of the most fa­mous mod­els in the world, Jerry Hall grew up in Texas. She knew her father’s fam­ily had its roots in Old­ham, Lan­cashire, and wanted to find out how they ended up in Amer­ica. “We learnt at school about Texas and Amer­i­can his­tory. We learnt about the early set­tlers. I just can’t be­lieve my rel­a­tives did it. They were pretty tough.” Mean­while, a wooden chest full of pa­pers and pho­to­graphs gave her some clues about her mother’s pi­o­neer lin­eage and her in­ves­ti­ga­tions led her to one of the great­est he­roes of the ‘ Wild West’. “Ev­ery­one in the fam­ily has fol­lowed their dream and just gone for things. I think we’ve def­i­nitely got some pi­o­neer spirit in our blood!”
