"His ancestry was of course mainly eastern european"

I don't come to this knowing anything about his ancestry other than his father was a Scot called Miller and his mother was a Scot called Hendry. neither of which sound eastern european - though admittedly people can change their names etc. What makes you come to the conclusion that his ancestry was 'mainly' eastern european?
