As far as I am aware there is only one place called Frewen, a small town in Wyoming, named after Moreton Frewen who was a cattle rancher there c1880. In the surrounding area there is a lake (Lake Frewen) and a rock escarpment (Castle Frewen).
In Australia there is an even smaller town called Frewena, supposedly named after my gg uncle, Robert Frewen (born 1857 Tipperary, Ireland, died 1937 Sydney, NSW), who was a railroad engineer and bought land when he was surveying there.
