IMPORTANT: What is this database for?
This may be the same person as George Fruin found in 1841 census, also married to an Elizabeth, also living in Toot Baldon, also had the following children in 1841:
Pamela, aged 20
Joseph, aged 15
Elizabeth, aged 15
John, aged 13
George, aged 11
William, aged 8
Thomas, aged 5
Ann, aged 2.
Almost exactly matching this Joseph Fruin's children except for Pamela (who would have been aged 21 in 1841 and probably wold have left home by then), and the two Thomas's, but we know they both died young anyhow.
I am slightly concerned about the change of careers if Joseph and George are the same person however. Joseph goes from being a Labourer, to a Dealer, to a Carrier. If it is the same person as George, he then goes onto being a poulterer.
Joseph Fruin, also married to an Elizabeth, also living in Toot Baldon, had the following children:
Joseph, christened 1820
Elizabeth, christened 1822
John, christened 1827
George, christened 1830
William, christened 1833
Thomas, christened 1836
Ann, christened 1839
George Fruin nor any of his children appear to be christened in the parish records for Toot Baldon, whereas Joseph and his children all do.
The question is, would two people in the same small village have 7 children, all at about the same time, all with the same Christian names, and also have a wife with the same Christian name? Not impossible, but unlikely I think.

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.
