Place of Birth: Hacienda Heights, California, USA

Date of Birth: March 27, 1975

Ethnicity: German, Scottish, English, Irish, Northern Irish (Scots-Irish), Swedish, Luxembourgian

Stacy Ann Ferguson, better known simply as Fergie, is an American musician, actress, fashion designer, and television personality. She is a member of the music group The Black Eyed Peas, and has also worked as a solo artist. Other members of the group are apl.de.ap, Taboo, and will.i.am.

Fergie is the daughter of Theresa “Terri” Ann (Gore) and John Patrick Ferguson. Her uncle, Tim Ferguson, is editor of Forbes Asia. Fergie is married to actor Josh Duhamel.

Fergie’s father has English, Scottish, German, and Swedish ancestry. Fergie’s mother has German, Irish, English, Northern Irish (Scots-Irish), and Luxembourgian ancestry.

Fergie has stated (more than once) that one of her father’s grandmothers was born in Guanajuato, Mexico. It does not appear that this statement is accurate. Both of Fergie’s paternal great-grandmothers were born in the Unites States, as were all four of Fergie’s paternal great-great-grandmothers.

Fergie’s paternal grandfather was Harold Lee Ferguson (the son of Anthony Wayne Ferguson and Jeanette “Jean”/”Nettie” Lewis Stone). Harold was born in West Virginia, as were his parents, and all of his grandparents. Harold had English, as well as some Scottish and German, ancestry. Anthony was the son of Anthony Wayne Ferguson and Margaret Ferguson. Jeanette was the daughter of Robert Henry Lee Stone and Margaret May Toney.

Fergie’s paternal grandmother was Patricia Sheppard (the daughter of Harold Benjamin Sheppard and Edna MacDonald). Patricia was born in Idaho. Harold was born in Illinois, as were his parents, William C. Sheppard and Margaret Wood. Edna was born in Montana, to a Scottish-born father, Bernard MacDonald, and a Swedish-born mother, Augusta Ehrenberg.

Fergie’s maternal grandfather was John Douglas Gore (the son of Arthur Henry Baldwin Gore and Margaret Jane Browne). John was born in California. Arthur was born in Ireland, to an Irish-born father, Arthur Saunders Gore, and an Australia-born mother, Elizabeth Baldwin. Fergie’s great-grandfather Arthur was from an upper-class family of English and Northern Irish descent. Margaret was born in Ohio, to an Irish-born father, John Douglas Browne, and an Ohio-born mother, Julia M. Cowper, whose own father was born in England and whose own mother was born in Ireland.

Fergie’s maternal grandmother was Evelyn Mary Wagner (the daughter of Irvin Leo Wagner and Mary/Maria “Mayme” Elizabeth Gabel). Irvin was born in Ohio, to German parents, Francis George Wagner and Elizabeth Mary Liebel. Fergie’s great-grandmother Mary Elizabeth Gabel was born in Ohio, as were her parents, Peter Gabel and Marianne/Mary Elizabeth Reineck. Mary Gabel’s paternal grandparents were ethnic Germans from Alsace-Lorraine. Mary Gabel’s maternal grandfather was German, and Mary’s maternal grandmother, Suzanna “Susan” Bartson, was from Hesse Castle, Luxemburg.

She’s fucking weird looking her forehead wtf

phaedra April 14, 2016 at 11:59 pm

She’s actually pretty (eyes, lips and all).

Her forehead could look better if it were raised though.

she looks so much older than she is

she reminds me of DEBBIE HARRY of the late 1990s when she was in her mid 50s

She used to do drugs, that’s why she looks so old. She did everything from ecstasy to crystal meth.


neiltennant August 19, 2015 at 8:28 am

she seems to have a very unhealthy live so far

and she reminds me now of DEBBIE HARRY in the late 1990s when she was in her mid 50s and before she had plastic surgery

wannabe Mexican? maybe she tries to fool the Hispanic audience to sell more records and tickets

Drea K August 17, 2015 at 10:51 pm

Based on the documents shown here, it doesn’t say anywhere that she’s part Mexican but she did recently say in an interview in her own words that she IS part Mexican and that she’s very proud of it… maybe she doesn’t know her origins that well? Either that or something’s missing here.

Her uncle, Tim Ferguson, is editor of Forbes Asia. He certainly has never mentioned being part Mexican.
