 One of Frenchay Village Museum's latest books is "J.S. Fry & Sons - a rough guide to the family and the firm". It covers the story of the Fry family from 1728 to the death of the last Fry to be involved in the chocolate business in 1967. But it's not just chocolate, the book also highlights other successful fields of endeavour for members of the family, ranging from boats to vacuum cleaners, by way of  international law, a university, and record-breaking racing cars.  It especially covers the members of the Fry family who lived in Frenchay.
