by ethnic on January 25, 2010

Birth Name: Jessica Ann Simpson

Place of Birth: Abilene, Taylor, Texas, U.S.

Date of Birth: July 10, 1980

Ethnicity: English, with some Scottish, distant German and Swiss-German

Jessica Simpson is an American singer, songwriter, actress, television personality, and fashion designer.

Her sister is singer and actress Ashlee Simpson. Jessica is married to football player Eric Johnson, with whom she has two children.

Jessica has English, along with some Scottish, and distant German and Swiss-German, ancestry.

Some online sources state that Jessica has Native American ancestry, specifically “1/16th Native American”. It is not clear if this ancestry has been documented/verified. No Native American ancestry appears in publicly available family trees of Jessica Simpson, and all sixteen of Jessica’s great-great-grandparents were caucasian.

Jessica’s paternal grandfather was Curtis Thaddeus Simpson (the son of Thaddeus Pickett Simpson and Bertie Belle Curtis). Thaddeus was the son of Robert Homer Simpson and Elizabeth J. Blake/Blackstone. Bertie was the daughter of Vernantus Cincinatti Curtis and Tululah Lue/Love Rhyne.

Jessica’s paternal grandmother was Joyce Alice Adams (the daughter of Grady Henry Ward Adams and Sally/Sallie Maude Roberts). Grady was the son of Silas Graves Sinkfield Adams and Frances Elizabeth Valentine. Sally was the daughter of Daniel A. Roberts and Sallie Maud Tyner.

Jessica’s maternal grandfather was Acy Edward Drew, Jr. (the son of Acy Edward Drew and Thelma Dee McLendon). Acy was the son of Stonewall Drew and Emma Cliff. Thelma was the daughter of Ben Holmes McLendon and Kate Vawter.

Jessica’s maternal grandmother was Dorothy Jean Hyles (the daughter of Herbert Ben Hyles and Bertha Dee Teeters). Herbert was the son of William Jasper Hyles and Lula Ella Hughes. Bertha was the daughter of Andrew Garrett Teeters and Sarah/Sallie Elizabeth Massey.

She looks English, she has a Kerry Katona Vibe. Not too in this pic because of course this site put tanned pictures

Capricious October 11, 2015 at 4:57 am

She looks like Ricky Martin in drag. :)

Overrated as hell, and she looks manly.

Germanchick67 January 29, 2014 at 5:52 pm

i dont know why but to me she looks very german (not because i am) but something in her features

J.J. January 14, 2014 at 6:13 pm

correction; her eyes are hazel (light brown) and her hair is dark brown (brunette) (dyed blonde)

Shawn January 10, 2014 at 9:41 am

She has natural dark brown/black hair.

J.J. September 16, 2013 at 6:42 am

correction; her eyes are hazel (light brown) and her hair is dark brown (brunette) (dyed blonde) I think it should be listed

@Follers

I’m curious about something.I was looking at Judy Reyes IMDB Trivia page,and she’s quoted for saying,she’s surprised that Jessica is a Latina:

Personal Quotes section
http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0721332/bio

What are the odds of there being,any truth to that?I mean Latinos/Latina have no fixed look,so what do you think?

andrew June 23, 2013 at 6:50 am

imdb.com is becoming more and more not reliable as site

andrew June 23, 2013 at 7:01 am

imdb.com says Jessica is a distant relative of Al Gore, even though she’s a registered Republican who voted for Bush and McCain. Also Jessica mother is reported to be of English and “Native American” descent

follers June 23, 2013 at 1:20 pm

“I don’t know if I’m more surprised by this [ALMA award] or the fact that Jessica Simpson is Latina”

Perhaps it was a joke. If you think about it that way, it makes sense.

Jessica Simpson has no documented Hispanic ancestry, nor any documented Native American ancestry. Her mother’s (and dad’s) family is listed as “White” going back many generations.

follers June 23, 2013 at 1:22 pm

Some of my posts below this one (see the ones after “Ryan” on this page) have a lot of her genealogy.

Me myself and I June 23, 2013 at 4:20 pm

Hey there Follers, I know I’m annoying, but could you do a research on Phoebe Tonkin? I really wanna know her ethnicity, in advance thanks :)

follers June 23, 2013 at 5:27 pm

Australians are hard to find the genealogy of, because most records that are available are from many years ago. Tonkin is an English surname, though, and her parents’ names are Jannyfer and Nicholas.

J.J. December 2, 2013 at 7:49 pm

White Australians of 3+ generations (usually of british/anglo ancestry) are almost always ignorant to their heritage and prefer to identify themselves as ‘just australian’ as they seem to think white skin with light hair and light eyes is stereotypically an ‘australian’ look without recognising the fact that the white look and their heritage is European and that a true ‘australian’ is an aboriginal/indigenous person. That would be the main reason why finding out a white Australian person’s heritage is difficult, however most of Australia is pure bred british & irish descent not like America which has many people of dutch, german, french, Norwegian etc descent. So it’s easy to assume a white Australian person who doesn’t recognise their ethnicity is of anglo descent. There are also many white Australians or Italian, greek, Serbian, Croatian, Lebanese etc descent however they’re usually of less generations Australian and are more proud of their ethnicity and more inclined to state it.
source: I’m a born and bred white Australian from Sydney of southern European descent.

she has also native american roots

look at her eyes, they look so exotic
her sister has cold grey eyes while she has dark brown

theropod June 26, 2013 at 12:56 am

Seriously what is it with these “oh she has brown eyes, she has Native blood”….You could say Italian or Jewish roots, but Native is just pushing it…

Can’t full blooded white people not have brown eyes? Brown eyes are so common you know, they’re everywhere and can be found anywhere. Doesn’t mean that whoever has them they’re mixed. *eyes roll*

Full blooded Germans and Scots can have brown eyes…!

europeproud96 August 9, 2013 at 3:13 pm

hahaha you british people are so hilarious you try so hard to make youre country northern eurpean look a likee but the majority of you have brown hair and brown eyes want some examples okay…russel brand,john lennon,george harrison,colin firth,colin farrell,george best(bot irish wich is the same thing)ahaha it seems the world know is knowing the truth you insignificant nordic-mediterranean island ahaha

marjanel February 20, 2016 at 8:49 pm

And? Having brown eyed people would make Britain inferior to you or what?
PD: I am not British.

Ryan January 18, 2013 at 9:47 am

If I post the source my comment will not go through
I provided Angelina Jolie’s Native source HOURS ago and that comment is still in moderation.

Ryan January 18, 2013 at 9:48 am

OOPS sorry
comment above meant as a reply

Ryan January 18, 2013 at 10:08 am
Ryan January 18, 2013 at 10:23 am

So even though she claims to be Native and her REP sent out a letter it doesn’t count cause it doesn’t show in her recent history? OK then.

I thought this site was about Ethnicity, not about RECENT mixed ethnicity.

Ryan January 18, 2013 at 5:05 pm

I disagree. Sure it took this incident for her to claim her Native side, but that doesn’t mean she’s lying. Based on her look I believe she’s 1/16th Native American.

Ryan January 18, 2013 at 5:06 pm

1/16th Native American on her mother’s side

CORRECTION

Ryan January 18, 2013 at 5:52 pm

You’re not the admin of this site it doesn’t matter what you think.

The Finnish do not look like her. Where do you get she is 15/16th Finnish? That’s random and laughable.

Ryan January 18, 2013 at 6:07 pm

Your logic is flawed. She claiming to be pat Native is not farfetched.

Ryan January 18, 2013 at 10:45 pm

Admin are going to correct the info or not?

Ryan January 18, 2013 at 11:41 pm

haha I don’t think so
but it is a nice photo one of the very few

Lotus January 18, 2013 at 10:53 pm

No! Follors is racist and works for this site. They have a hidden agenda. America is the whitest of the white and everyone in Europe including Scandinavians are mixed with Asian. And every Latin-American is mixed with Black. Funny when America is Multi-Racial and Multi-Cultural and always have been.

Lotus January 18, 2013 at 11:07 pm

Your comments reflect that. Your poor choice of photos reflect that. Hell, this entire site reflects that. A racist should not be in charge of running an Ethnicity site.

Ryan January 18, 2013 at 11:18 pm

Yes, he seems slightly Xenophobic.

“Olivia Wilde is “1/64th Jewish” and 0% Asian, so I dunno.”

His comment on Yvonne implying she has Asian when clearly is not the case and even so it prob only less then 3%. I find Jessica Simpson quite more exotic than Yvonne to be honest.

Ryan January 18, 2013 at 11:24 pm

To follors

No but I found the name of Angelina Jolie’s Native ancestor. Waiting on that for many hours now.

Ryan January 18, 2013 at 11:29 pm

Most of them are bad to pis# poor. It does say something about this site. Whatever that something is I rather not know.

Ryan January 18, 2013 at 11:37 pm

“However, the page already mentions her Huron ancestor (which make her 1/1024 Huron).”

Thanks, I see it now.

Ryan January 19, 2013 at 4:48 am

@Lotus

LOL I’m beginning to think you were right.
They are even denying actual DNA testing.

YES Europeans are ASIAN and America is our great WHITE Master IMAOOOOO!!!!

Lotus January 19, 2013 at 6:20 am

Wait a minute… I’m American, sorry, however I’m a decent human being and was brought up knowing right from wrong. This site promotes ignorance, racism, hate and lies. No clue why is still up and running.

Ryan January 19, 2013 at 8:15 am

I’m beginning to think the same
Too many trolls pretending to be this and that
Spewing hate and lies

Lotus January 19, 2013 at 8:27 am

I do agree that follers is a troll and has multiple personalities. I do not trust anything that she/he says.

Lotus January 20, 2013 at 2:51 am

Really? Name calling? Very mature.

ethnic December 29, 2012 at 8:08 pm

thanks Follers, I agree, until a good source is provided ill leave it off.

Ryan January 18, 2013 at 6:22 am

She claims to be Native why take it off? She is proud of her heritage.

Ryan January 18, 2013 at 9:35 am

She gave an interview if I remember correctly and her REP sent out a letter to the press saying she’s 1/16th Native American on her mother’s side.

Her face has strong Native features.
