Ronnie Wood is an English rock musician, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, artist, author and radio personality best known as a member of The Rolling Stones since 1975. He was scheduled to be a celebrity guest on the U.K. version of Who Do You Think You Are? The show’s professional genealogists researched his ancestry and found a lot of information about his ancestors. There was but one problem,: they found too much information to fit into a one-hour program!
It seems that Ronald Wood has a huge family tree made up of gypsies, most of whom lived on canal barges.
A representative of Who Do You Think You Are? stated, “With Ronnie’s colourful relatives – who can be traced back over 300 years – there was too much to be able to work through in time for this year’s series.”
The program’s directors are still determined to see if they can bring together what they need to make a show all about the Wood clan. But if it happens it will have to be next year now.
I’m envious of anyone who has this many documented, colorful ancestors!
