Early settlers of the district who worked in the timber industry were William Foott, Charles Cater, a bullock driver,Joseph Frewin(1825-1877),Edward Newman(1880),Alexander Walker(1903-1981), George Williamson, Thomas Collins(1830-1905) ,George Buckton, a former convict(1809-1881),Billy Cook,Joe and Johnny Morris,Johnny Robley,Nittie Anthony and Tom Crawley. Many of the timber getters and sawmill hands went to the Traveller's Rest Hotel at Blue Gum Flat to have a drink and relax.
Life in Australia:
The Humbolt's records show that Joseph & Christiana were English and not Irish and gave Wargrave and Greenwich as their birthplaces. Joseph's parents were Thomas Frewin and Elizabeth (maiden name as yet unknown.) Christiana's parents were James Kingston and Christiana (maiden name not yet known.)Joseph belonged to the Independent Church (Congregational) and his wife Christiana was Church of England.Their daughter Christiana (the 3rd) was born at Battersea (in London on the Thames) in 1852, presumably whilst waiting to board the ship.
You and Your Family:
My grandmother Clare ( 1898-1993) told me that her grandparents, James and Christiana were the 2nd white family to settle in the area of Lisarow and Ourimba near Gosford NSW. They had a farm, with large orchards, particularly oranges. They were also timber getters.She said that although many families in the area were hungery her family always had plenty to eat(when she was young).The Frewins are a very large family. My grandmother Clare had 10 brothers & sisters and they all had numerous children.
Life Before Australia:
Wargrave(pop.2,271) is located at the junction of the Thames and Loddon rivers, 6 miles north east of Reading. It is an agricultural market and resort favoured by artists.The name Frewin is Saxon(Old English 5th - 12th C.) and is found in the Doomsday Book compiled in 1085.It means "free","noble"or "noble friend". This implies that these people were not serfs (conquered Celts) but free Saxons, most likely landholders.Greenwhich was established by the Danes in 1048. Their King Christian iv(he was ruler of Norway as well.)changed the name of Norway's capital to Christiana (after himself) in 1624.( Oslo reverted to its original name in 1924.)Maybe the name Christiana became popular in Greenwhich around this time.

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.
