What is this database for?
This database contains a collection of some of the thousands of bits of information about Frewin's, Frewin's, Fruin's and Fruen's etc that are publicly available in family archives, Census's, the IGI, Parish Records and similar sources.
In many instances, we have attempted to make some sense of the various fragments and give an outline of the most likely family structure as we currently understand it based on the limited information available.
Given the sheer amount of transcription work needed to create a database of individuals, and the very sparse nature of the evidence found in many early records, there will certainly be mistakes in this database!
The intention is that any mistakes will be ironed out as more information becomes available about the various individuals.
Therefore, please do not assume that the information found on this database is absolutely correct! Use the source information privided to check the record yourself and let us know if there are any corrections needed.
If you have information about any of the individuals on this database that is not already mentioned in the record, please contact us so that we can amend or correct the entry concerned.
The database is very much a work in progress. Please treat the information provided accordingly.
