: : Does anyone know anything about William Richard Fruin and his decendants. Williams parents were Thomas Fruin & Sophie Pether. William came to South Australia aboard the "Helena Melena" arriving in South Australia on the 4/10/1883 with his brother George Thomas Fruin. Don't know if William stayed in South Australia or came to Western Australia with George. Any help re the above would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Faye Fruin
We do have some details on Thomas Fruin and Sophie Pether here.
It looks like they are descended from the Toot Baldon Fruin's. There is a lot of information on the database about them, and Fruin descendants from Toot Baldon have visited this board recently.
Let me know if you would like to add or amend on the database entry.
Think I may have found a little more information on William Richard Fruin from the freebmd website. It shows a William Richard Fruin with the same birth year as the one I am trying to find marrying in December 1885 in the district of Kensington in Volume 1a Page 155. It may be possible that he returned to the UK from South Australia. As you probably have heard it can be very hard here in Australia to sometimes find information first hand. You are correct in the fact that both George & William are descended from the Toot Baldin Fruin's. I have been in touch via email with some of their descendants in the UK. Thanks again for any help you may be able to pass along. Your website is a great source of information to anyone who is trying to find their Fruin background.
