ISAAC AND ELIZA FRY nee QUIRE
CHILDREN OF CHARLES AND
Isaac and Eliza Fry
The Frys are connected to the Sherwood family through the marriage of Minnie Fry to Arthur Sherwood in 1882. Minnie was the daughter of Isaac and Eliza Fry.
Fry was born in Rooksbridge, Somerset, 1 March 1824. His parents were
John and Ann Fry nee Norvill/Norville. Isaac and his twin brother Abraham were the
youngest of nine children, seven boys and two girls. Abraham died when he
was five months old. The Frys lived at Rooksbridge until
at least 1832 when shortly after the family home passed out of their
hands. By 1851 Isaac had moved to Brean, Somerset where he was working as
a farm labourer. It may have been there that he first met Eliza Quire.
