Birth Name: Stacy Ann Ferguson

Place of Birth: Hacienda Heights, Los Angeles, California, United States

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 and model Josh Duhamel, with whom she has a son.

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

In 2008, Fergie stated that one of her father’s grandmothers was born in Guanajuato, Mexico. In 2015, she also said:

I’m very proud to be part Mexican. I’m one of a growing number of Hispanics in America, but you wouldn’t necessarily know it. This is becoming the norm, and it’s the beauty of our melting pot.

It does not appear that Fergie has Mexican ancestry. 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/Janette “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 County Sligo, Ireland, to an Irish-born father, Arthur Saunders Gore, and an Australia-born mother, Elizabeth/Eliza 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/Couper, whose own father was born in England and whose own mother was born in Ireland.

Fergie’s maternal grandmother was Evelyn Mary/Mae Wagner (the daughter of Irvin Leo Wagner and Mary/Maria Elizabeth “Mayme” Gabel). Evelyn was born in California. 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.

I thought she was Mexican too?

“Gore” family is from County Sligo, Ireland

Her Mexican ancestry is on her father’s side.

So, has anyone found Fergie’s Mexican great-grandmother yet?

madman August 14, 2017 at 9:44 am

No, but I found her Persian great-grandmother. Margaret Jane Browne was born in Ohio, to Massoud Beiranvand (later Browne) and Jaleh Gharabaghi, who were both immigrants from Iran. Please correct the page with this new information.

follers August 14, 2017 at 9:48 am

What? Fergie is Mexican, not Persian! Find her Mexican ancestry, please.

madman August 14, 2017 at 11:58 am

Harold Benjamin Sheppard cheated on his wife with a Mexican woman.

What is the meaning of this?

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.

neiltennant August 20, 2015 at 9:02 am

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

xoxo August 27, 2015 at 4:42 am

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

poor FERGIE she does look sooo old that it hurts me

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


andrew August 18, 2015 at 3:29 pm

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.

follers August 19, 2015 at 10:27 pm

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

cwm85 July 30, 2015 at 3:52 pm

Mexican? Bit of stretch Fergie… lol

neiltennant July 23, 2015 at 5:10 am

hmm she looks so old despite plastic surgery

neiltennant June 14, 2015 at 8:32 am

thats ridiculous only because she tans she looks part mexican or mixed ?

abbracci April 3, 2015 at 9:44 am

She has a little Mexican in her from her father’s grandmother:

Fergie does look kind of mestiza. Not a a lot but a little.

@Princess You always assume everyone is a different race, so stfu and leave you troll!

ihatemostpeople January 31, 2014 at 3:03 am

I guess the lie about being part Mexican was to seem “exotic”.

Nikki May 26, 2014 at 1:33 pm

SHe is not mexican, if you knew ethnicities, then you would have known she was not mexican

J.J. June 5, 2014 at 10:39 pm

mexican is not an ethnicity, thats like saying australian’s an ethnicity, and having more ethnicities does not make one exotic, the word exotic means foreign

90sSvenjaBeachGirl January 25, 2014 at 8:02 pm

Noo!!, its obviously that she is part Mexican and maybe NA descent!!!, idk if is it possible to look like really too look alike Mexican if she isnt actually.

the punisher November 22, 2013 at 6:19 pm

So she doesn’t have Mexican blood I knew it, I knew it before this site said she did

neiltennant November 16, 2013 at 2:50 pm

don’t think she is of mexican/native descent

andrew October 13, 2013 at 3:41 am

she claimed Mexican/Native American coz her background was too white for a member of a hip-hop band, I alwais knew she was just Scottish/European http://img81.imageshack.us/img81/8025/fergienl8.jpg

sadie April 8, 2012 at 12:22 am

Fergie is Mexican way back further in her ancestrial family tree so I doubt she really has much in her. Also, big deal if she does have Mexican what is wrong with that? God made us who we are and our ancestors.

Testing April 3, 2012 at 3:22 pm

Many people keep saying mexican is not a race. It is a race. The majority of mexican are of native american. Just like the native american on the reservation. The difference is the mexican speak spanish and the natives americans here in the usa spaek english.
sure there’s some white mexicans out there but that’s a minority
and they usually don’t migrate to the united states because there wealthy in mexico.

lisa78419 August 5, 2012 at 8:02 pm

sorry, but Mexican is NOT a race. like all Hispanics, Mexicans are a people of many races. a lot of Mexicans are Mestizos-wich are people of mixed white and Amerindian descent. this is the biggest ethnic group in Latin America. Latin Americans can be people of any race or races; making Latin America one of the most diverse regions in the world.

Jessica-Tere October 22, 2012 at 12:36 pm

Race= Each of the major divisions of humankind, having distinct physical characteristics.
Nationality=Distinctive national or ethnic character: “the change of a name does not discard nationality”.
Ethnicity= The fact or state of belonging to a social group that has a common national or cultural tradition.

So Mexican is a nationality and an ethnicity NOT a race. There is only one true race HUMAN and it has been broken down into categories NEGROID, CAUCASOID, AND MONGOLOID and those have their own subcategories as well. Mexicans can be a mix of any and all races. I prefer to just think of people from any place as HUMAN. It makes things a lot less complicated. In the end who really cares? We all bleed blue until oxygen hits it…

Richard Fiorello November 22, 2013 at 8:33 am

5 races of Asian/Mongoloid, aboriginal/ red, Arab, Caucasian, and negroid. They are right because being extreme on one line is way too arrogant, stupid, and serious.

andrew November 22, 2013 at 2:01 pm

there are no such things as aboriginal/ red and Arab race

Jane January 27, 2012 at 1:35 pm

She is not very pretty and the only thing that is pretty are her eyes. You can tell she has native blood trust me I live in Canada most whites here aren’t white there lie. I can see their native blood a mile away. Because my white mother is white she can trace her family tree to England and northern France. She married my dad who is 1/4 native you can tell he is native and their kids are 1/6 and you can tell with my sister she is know white lol and my brothers look white but you can still tell there is something known white about them. Oh I am adopted by the way and I am black.

me January 27, 2012 at 5:19 pm

Shut up. I can barely understand what you are saying.

andrew October 13, 2013 at 3:47 am

why? he clearly said Canadians are mixed with Inuit lol

ive noticed we have a lot of beautiful mexican stars like jessica alba,eva longoria,demi lovato, selena gomez, cassie and fergiee<3

Ashley January 24, 2012 at 7:58 pm

The interesting part is that these people you’ve named all but one I believe are part European or Caucasian (or African American i.e. Cassie). What about the “beautiful” 100% Mexican?

eleonora022 November 25, 2011 at 12:27 pm

Ferguson is a Scottish last name.

maria November 25, 2011 at 1:11 pm

Ferguson name is of Gaelic origon found both in Scotland and Ireland and is patronymic form of Fergus ie son of Fergus,The old Gaelic name Fearghus comprmised of the elements fear (or `man`) and ghus(`vigor or force),It is the name of an early Irish mythical figure and an early king of the Scots.But it was the Scots who brought the name Ferguson to Ireland at the time of plantations,Everyone knows Scotland and Ireland are very close even sharing nearly the same language Gaelic that has a few differences,,So it it now used commanly in the two countries,,But the Fergie has Irish and Scottish as it says so in the paragraph written about her so…

Victor September 30, 2011 at 7:03 pm

Dumbass racist shes MEXICAN IRISH SCOTTISH if you know anything most celebrities get DNA tests and it said it shes now white so shut up MEXICAN POWER!!!!!

Me January 24, 2012 at 11:17 pm

There is no such thing as a DNA test that tells one whether they are Mexican or not because it is not a race. Truthfully, it is just a nationality, but most Mexicans are heavily mixed with Native and European, and sometimes even African in George Lopez’s case.

anonymous August 14, 2011 at 6:13 pm

i thought she was puerto rican or Venezuelan

Over900 August 12, 2011 at 9:12 pm

Sorry but this is wrong. Wikipedia says she’s of Irish, Scottish, Mexican AND Native American. And i know alot of Mexicans are part Native American so basically she’s mostly Native American and Anglo.

Over900 is Ignorant August 21, 2011 at 2:22 pm

Okay first off Wikipedia is not a reliable source. Just because it says something different doesn’t mean this site is automatically true, like please be smart and uses your brain. Secondly if you were smart you’d know that Mexico is full of many different ancestral backgrounds which include the people who built the freaking ancient ruins and pyrimaids that reside there today! && I’m pretty sure native Americans were one of the many groups that integrated with those originally reading in Mexico including the Spanish (who are white!) blacks, English, and more. The world is very diverse so I suggest you open your eyes and take a long around. You might also want to get off Wikipedia and check out things like the history channel.

Bored is an idiot June 16, 2011 at 10:02 pm

Bored you fucking idiot a Caucasian is any nationality or in some case a race that is west of the caucus mountains therefore it could very well extend to north America and south america

is it friday yet April 25, 2011 at 10:16 pm

im mexican..but mexican is a country not a race..it deprives of indians spaniards japanese,irish, italians,french, germans=dos equis the bandas,the other music with accordians even in mexico city they have oktoberfest..mexican is a mixed nationality..i feel i have irish spanish indian german and frenchie blood..im tall 6,3 thats not from the indians..so we are very diversed

Over900 August 12, 2011 at 9:17 pm

Yes, but most Mexicans identify themselves as either Criollo (Spanish Mexicans), Mestizo (Mixed Native American and European) or Amerindian.

Elouise April 19, 2011 at 3:08 pm

Plus why the he’ll do people think it’s wrong to be dark!? ‘Not all Mexicans are dark etc etc’ – you people say it like being dark is a bad thing! Personally, I think being dark or light doesn’t reflect on your ethnicity usually – I’m 1/4 black but I’m quite pale (NC15 in MAC foundation shades)
Besides, you can definately tell she has some Latina in her. It’s all in the ass ;)

Elouise April 19, 2011 at 2:56 pm

She’s so pretty! Well no wonder, considering she’s mixed race

Alot of white people are mixed race dumbass . And that makes no sense at all. her beauttiful facial features are european

Niecy February 23, 2012 at 7:43 pm

Some of you sound really racist and ignorant right now. Im 14 and I’m a lot of different races and skin color can not tell you whats in your blood. I don’t see why they even allow people to like or dislike posts because certain people think that ethnicelebs.com is a place where you can show you behind and say whatever rude thing is on your mind. If you have a problem with race you need to see a therapist because honey there is no escaping that there will always be mixed races. So If you think Fergie is black, okay, maybe she has a bit of African-American in her, but if you think shes unattractive, thats you. Race has nothing to do with what the media says, so If you want to get upset because you feel a certain way, keep it to yourself.
People who are thumbs downing comments that you feel ‘disrespectful’ how about you mind your business because some of the things these people are saying aren’t even controversial. My gosh.. please.

“Mexican” is NOT a “race.” It’s a nationality. Mexicans can be of any race.

wtf If Fergie is Irish, Scottish and Mexican then she is not 100% caucasian even if she is mostly. Mexicans are not caucasians therefore she is not 100%. What her percentages are I do not know nor care.

fuzzybear February 12, 2011 at 6:59 am

To bored

Sorry again,I know this is to the other person,but caucasian doesn’t mean your white,it’s just a phenotype(bone structure).Also everything she’s listed as can be mexican,those ethnic backgrounds have been there for at least a 100yrs

LOL actually MOST Mexicans ARE NOT dark. Most Mexicans go from fair/white skin to olive/tan skin. The dark Hispanics are Hondurans, Dominicans, some Puerto Ricans/Cubans etc. (BLK MIXED ONES).

Do you know How many light skinned Mexicans are mixed with black.Then what about the Mexicans in the north,like the (mascogos people).Also the ones in the South are without a doubt are mixed with black

Anthony Quinn was a famous Irish-Mexican actor. Also a former President of Mexico Vincente Fox also was of Irish descent. There was some Irish immigration to Mexico. The name Obregón is from O’Brien.

Ashley January 25, 2012 at 12:57 pm

I hate to tell you, but most Mexicans are pretty freakin dark honey. As a matter of fact, they’re not white nor brown….they’re simply orange. And actually there are plenty of Hondurans who are very light skinned. Take a trip there and you’ll see. They have German heritage in them.

Steve June 23, 2010 at 5:14 pm

Ya, I always knew that there are many Mexicans who have Irish descent. eg. Anthony Quinn (actor), William Lamport – the real life Zorro, Álvaro Obregón – president of Mexico, Judith Grace González – TV hostess etc. etc. and then there was also Batallón de San Patricio.

Meghan July 11, 2010 at 11:03 pm

Yeah. A lot of that could also be because the Spanish traveled up into northern Ireland. That is why my family is considered “black Irish” (black hair, brown eyes, tan skin….but Irish). The Spanish mixed with the Irish and vise versa. I have no idea how Spanish I am but I know im pretty darn Irish but my whole family (besides pale me) are all tan with black hair and brown eyes.

Courtney August 25, 2010 at 4:22 pm

Thanks Steve. I never knew that.

shegeebee December 10, 2010 at 9:59 am

My great grandmother told me we are black irish, she had 4 daughters, 3 had red hair, 1 had black.
Have been looking for more info on the black irish, and found a couple of movies, one that hints at a mythical legend- The Secret of Roan Inish, and Black Irish.

Milena December 20, 2010 at 10:56 am

EXACTLY! I’m Mexican and am only like 2% Aztec. But the difference is in Aztec culture anyone of their decent is officially an Aztec (Or mayan etc.). The people believed that their decendants were the most important thing in existance no matter how distant.

Milena December 20, 2010 at 11:00 am

I have pale white skin. But have brown hair and eyes with high cheek bones.

could that Native blood come from her Mexican side?

priscilla May 30, 2010 at 1:39 pm

before i thought she was like part black or something

And What!!!!! April 29, 2010 at 3:51 am

It’s so funny to read peoples comments. Who cares if she “smoked pot” or had work done. Who cares if you think she’s cute or not. Those who all have something bad to say about someone are what the rest of the world like to call HATERS!!!!! Get a freaking life and stop trying to tear somebody else down to make yourself look good!

siddee April 22, 2010 at 4:44 pm

i heard she was mixed with lebanese

no April 1, 2010 at 10:23 am

she is only 1/8 mexican? when she first came out with BEP, i swear i thought she was like 1/4 black. but then i thought she was like latin. but she is like the total opposite!

To that person arguing about scottish-irish. There are scots-gaels (catholics) that came to ireland – surnames.., such as Mcdowell, mccartney, maybe ferguson reflect this.

the fact is fergies father is called Patrick – an irish name

Im irish and i live in ireland. Scottish-gaels came to ireland to help the irish-gaelic to fight the protestant scots and english

ethnic December 26, 2009 at 10:40 am

To be honest I didnt see the Latin in her. I think she aint ugly, just my opinion lol. Perez Hilton seems to have a different opinion.


VeRoni December 26, 2009 at 10:28 am

I always knew Fergie had some latin in her & obviously some Irish & scottish she’s not the prettiest girl but she is not UGLY!

Paul Swift December 21, 2009 at 12:53 am

I’d say she meant a mix of both. Tbh, I always though she was like half Latina before. ;o

ethnic December 20, 2009 at 9:54 pm

@tac Fergie said

“My Dad’s grandmother was born in Guanajuato. I’m very proud of it; that’s probably where I get my fire! I’m mostly Scottish-Irish, though.”

So its not clear if she meant Scots Irish or a mix of both.


tac December 20, 2009 at 2:04 pm

Scotch Irish does not mean she is part Scottish and part Irish. It means ethnic Scottish (Protestant) that settled in Ireland (mostly Northern Ireland) where they kicked ot the native Irish, and then a few generations later they came to America. Equating Scotch Irish to Irish is offensive and is absurd. Just because someone is a native of America doesn’t make them Native Americans. Same goes for Anglo Irish or Scotch Irish.

She not the prettiest white girl, I’ve ever seen. Shes okay looking. Compare her to Megan Fox. Fox, would win…..

barbie November 27, 2009 at 4:35 am

kno dat first girl who comment nw u ugly and old gt a life..

ethnic November 6, 2009 at 3:18 pm

Ferige said that her great grandmother was Mexican which actually makes her a 8th Mexican.

audrey November 5, 2009 at 10:51 pm

huh I didn’t get that at all…where did the 1/16 come from?

jeorge October 13, 2009 at 3:55 pm

If your great grandmother is mexican, this makes you 1/16 mexican..therefore, you are not mexican. Fergie identifies mostly with her Irish/Scotch side. She is white.

total23 May 21, 2010 at 10:07 am

She Is Mexican Descent Because She Has A Mexican Ancestor So She Is Mexican. And The Site Clearly Says Her Great Grandmother Was Mexican Which Makes Her 1/8 Mexican (12.5%) Not 1/16 (6.25%). And Even If She Was 1/16 She Is Still Mexican!

Shawnquantika Shaquisha August 30, 2009 at 4:25 pm

ethnic June 16, 2009 at 12:40 pm

Blasian && Proud, I guess the native-american heritage comes from her Mexican ancestry because she didn’t mention it at Latina.com. Unless you have a better source?

thanks for the comment.
