Jonny Bairstow Sister, Rebecca Bairstow: Parents & Family Tree

Rebecca Bairstow was born on Nov. 16, 1990, to her parents, David Bairstow and Janet Bairstow.

Her father, David, was a former English cricketer who played for Yorkshire and England as a wicket-keeper.

Later in 1997, the sources say David hanged himself due to depression at his home in Marton-cum-Grafton, Yorkshire.

She grew up with her brother, Jonny Bairstow, a famous England team player who won the 2019 Cricket World Cup.

Rebecca’s brother also played for the Leeds United youth football team. Had he continued, his football career, there is a possibility that he could have achieved fame just like other renowned English soccer players like Harry Kane.

Jonny and Rebecca are from their father’s second wife, Janet Bairstow, who elected Yorkshire’s first female vice president.

Jonny Bairstow Family: A Proud Brother & Son

The England cricketer lost his father when he was a young boy. Since then, his mother, Janet, and sister, Rebecca, have always been his biggest supports.

One of the emotional moments of the family together was during Yorkshire’s thrilling victory, where he engaged in a heartfelt exchange with his mother.

Unlike scripted encounters, their genuine interaction showcased their close bond.

Another was when Bairstow recalls searching for his mother and sister, Becky, in the crowded Cape Town stadium where he received a standing ovation for his first Test century against South Africa in January 2016.
