I have been in touch with Wandsworth Borough Council in London to try to find out the origin of the name of Frewin Road in their borough.
I have had a response this morning from Gareth Jones:
"Frewin Street, London, SW18 was named in 1913. The land was owned by Magdalen College, Oxford and Frewin/Frewen was President/Dean/Benefactor, amongst other things, to the College in the 17th Century."
This is a reference to Richard Frewin, who is remembered in two separate online articles posted here and here.
So there you go.
