Queen tops landed list but Australian actress features thanks to holdings in Australia the size of HUNGARY

Nicole Kidman’s relatives are among the largest landowners on the planet, researchers believe.

Australian farming company Kidman Holdings is the eighth biggest landowner in the world.

The research, published today, ranks the Kidmans as owning a tract of land four-and-a-half times the size of Wales – 24,000,000 acres.

‘At eight on the list of individual and family landowners are the farms and ranches of the Kidmans in Australia, to whom the actress Nicole Kidman is related,’ the survey said.

‘Theirs is the largest private, non-monarchical, non-state landholding on earth.’

Kidman Holdings was founded by Sir Sidney Kidman in the 19th century.

He reputedly started the family firm after running away from home at the age of 13, with his sole possession a one-eyed horse. He died in 1935.

Nicole Kidman was born in Honolulu but grew up in Australia.

Previously published research has found her ancestors Bridget and James Callachar arrived in Sydney on board the Agnes Ewing in January 1842.

They moved to Port Macquarie to work as ‘agricultural labourers’ and had a son, Miss Kidman’s great-great-grandfather.

A spokesman for the actress, whose father is a biochemist and mother a nursing instructor, declined to comment on the connection to Kidman Holdings.

Topping the list, according to the research published in New Statesman magazine, is the Queen, who – notionally – owns the 6.6billion acres of the Commonwealth in 32 countries.

Just think, if Tom Cruise had re-negotiated his beard contract properly with Ms. Kidman, the $cilons would have a new place to go in case they got kicked out of Clearwater. Dumbasses.

You don't have to pay money to find out about that stuff. Before the internet, you had to fork over a pretty penny before you got to Xenu.

So. . . there's that.
