when someones family has been here since colonial times its hard to track it down to one or two ethnicties, so he's probably just a WASP.

Fry's a mutt, like most Americans. Not all redheads have freckles and moles, maybe he lucked out.  wink

Remember the episode 'The Luck of the Fryrish'? That's a pun on a book called 'The Luck of the Irish'.

@Shiny: Don't encourage him!  wink

I had always thought of Fry as having Irish ethnicity. Besides all of the physical evidence, Fry just sounds like a very Irish name to me.

I've always been interested in where names come from.  smile

The Luck of the Fryish is not a accidental title. He's most likely Irish.

Fry is definantly Irish. He has red hair, an Irish last name, and why else would they call that one episode "The Luck of the Fryrish"? Think about it!  roll eyes

Being half-Irish myself, I'm pretty sure "Fry" isn't an Irish surname.  Googled links say it's British:

   
Quote
http://www.searchforancestors.com/surnames/origin/f/fry.php
 (Origin Cornish British) Locality. A hill, a town or house on the most prominent part of a hill or eminence. German, Frei, free, Dutch, Vry, or Fry, free.

Origin Displayed: English

The history of the name Fry begins in the days of the Anglo-Saxon tribes in Britain. It was a name for a person who was referred to as the fry, which literally means free.


Edit: That said, I do think he's at least part Irish.
