Birth Name: Sean Richard O’Pry

Place of Birth: Kennesaw, Georgia, U.S.

Date of Birth: July 5, 1989

Ethnicity: English, Irish, Scottish, some Swiss-German, remote Welsh

Sean O’Pry is an American model. He is the son of Caran A. (Padgett) and John A. O’Pry.

Sean has English, Irish, Scottish, some Swiss-German, and remote Welsh, ancestry. He is also said to have Native American roots on his mother’s side. It is not clear if this Native American ancestry has been documented/verified. All of Sean’s maternal great-grandparents and great-great-grandparents are listed as “White” on U.S. Censuses.

Sean has no recent immigrant ancestors (and possibly no immigrant ancestors since at least 1800).

A picture of Sean with his mother can be seen here.

Sean’s paternal grandfather was Julian Richard O’Pry, Sr. (the son of John Culpepper O’Pry and Ouida Belle Welch). Julian was born in Georgia. John was the son of Thomas Bush/T. Y. O’Pry and Laura Jane Culpepper. Ouida was the daughter of George Washington Welch and Neta Frances McCorkle.

Sean’s paternal grandmother was Patricia Ann Carroll (the daughter of Albert Franklin Carroll and Alma Lee Gammel/Gamble). Patricia was born in Georgia. Albert was the son of John William Carroll and Sarah Miller/Mills. Alma was the daughter of Griffin Gamell.

Sean’s maternal grandfather is Clyde T. Padgett (the son of Claud Newton/Newt Padgett and Ida Mae Newton). Clyde was born in Georgia. Claud was the son of William Riley Padgett and Allie Mae Timms. Ida was the daughter of Robert Alexander Newton and Matellie Lucy Pritchard.

Sean’s maternal grandmother was Neomia/Naomi Ruth Chandler (the daughter of Wayman/Waymon Littleberry Chandler and Emma Nina Allen). Neomia was born in Tennessee. Wayman was the son of James M. Chandler and Mary Elizabeth Graham. Emma was the daughter of George Francis Asbury Allen and Mary Ann Alwood.

Ethnic, whatever mod on this site, does Sean O’Pry’s moon look 100 percent euro descent to you? She even has a French surname! Padgett. It’s not her skin tone too. Her whole features look off. I think the “native” blood is just African American that they don’t want to admit. The mom looks mulatto/quadroon/tri racial.

I think she’s “Lousiana Creole” of the like.

“Padgett” does not sound French at all, all the surnames from his mother’s side are Anglo. His mother is just a WASP.

The “Padgett” surname evidently goes back to John Padgett, who was born, c. 1735, in Surrey, England.

To Andrew, Padgett sounds like it came from Page, which in turn came from French.

She still looks very ambigious to me.. And it’s not her tan. And that their are claims of native ancestry and with those childhood photos I don’t know.

alexgxo September 15, 2016 at 7:54 pm

But yes i found out its a english surname. I stil don’t think she’s full euro descent. Several anthropology forums and even some fan foums agreed with this.. But whatever she had did not show up in Sean O’Pry’s looks..

His mother looks mixed.
Like a mulatto, quadroon or tri racial (native African euro).

She even has a French sounding surname if I remember. I think he has “creole” roots of which typically means mulatto or tri racial in the modern sense.

Would make sense though. Typically someone claiming native blood typically means “I have black ancestry but don’t want to admit it.”

Would’ve been attractive if he had dark or hazel eyes. His eyes are too light for his dark hair.

His mom looks mixed-race. I’ve seen images of her too.

A Gael. Any “Scottish” who look like that are of Irish descent.

Everyone is always claiming native American ancestry. If anything is under 5% it’s pretty much non existent.
