IMPORTANT: What is this database for?
From Betty: email@example.com
Would love to hear from you Michael and Andrew.
I take it Andrew you descend from John Frederick Frewin and Ann Giles, who went to Melbourne 1884?
John's brother Richard Frewin came to NZ early 1860s. He married Elizabeth Collins in New Plymouth 1865. She is my 2 x Gt Grandmother.
Cheers - Betty
From Betty Juranovich via Email 4/8/2001:
John Frederick went to Australia, he was ordained in Melbourne 1884. The rest of the family remained in England.
John Frederick attended Spurgeons College in London 1869 - 1871. He withdrew from Baptist Ministry 1882 and became an Anglican.
In 1881 the family was living in Charlton, Kent. The Frewin family were very active in the Adult Deaf Society of Victoria, Australia - Frank Ernest was deaf.
Oscar Henry Frewin also son of John Frederick went to South Africa 1899 and started a Printing Press there in 1903. It is now run by his grandson John.

John Frederick Frewin sailed to Australia in February 1882, aged 45 aboard the ship Potosi. Port B, fiche 400, page 5.
Also aboard the same sailing:
Frank Ernest Frewin, aged 19.
George Day (David) Frewin aged 15
It seems that John Frederick returned to the UK to collect the rest of his family, and returned to Australia aboard the ship Ballaarat in October 1883. Arrived at Port B, fiche 425, page 4.

What is this database for?
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.
