Origin of name

This name is either a variant of the nickname or status name 'Free', from the Old English word freo or frig meaning 'free (born)' - not a serf, not belonging to a lord. This source for the surname, also found as Frye, is chiefly confined to the south and southwest of England. The second origin is from another nickname, for a small person, from the Middle English fry meaning offspring, a child or small person.

Early records

The first Fry to appear in Jersey church records was William, son of WIlliam and Magdeleine Rabet. He was baptised in St Helier in 1748. There was then a gap until the 1830s, when the first family became established in St Mary.
