My name is Paul Frewen, born 1949 in Belleville, Ontario, Canada.
My father is Walter Frewen, born 1924 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
My grandfather is William Frewen, Born 1890 in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada.
His father is Walter Frewen who came to Canada around 1880 and settled in the Halifax area. The only document we have relating to Walter Frewen is his marriage certificate. He married Margaret Simard in Halifax on September 15, 1886. The marriage certificate names his father as William Frewen of Surrey and Mary Frewen of Norfolk. This is the couple I'm having difficulty tracking down.
The closest I have been able to come is the 1851 census. Listed there is a William Frewen, age 25, born in Worpelsdon, Surrey. His wife is listed as Eliza Frewen, age 22, born in Norfolk. They had a 1 year old son named Walter born in Norfolk. The parish registers for Frimley, Surrey list the christenings of Walter Frewen (13 June 1852) and Mary Eliza Ellen Frewen (23 May 1852). The parents were William and Eliza who lived in Farnham, Surrey at the time.
I'm almost sure that William and Eliza are my great-great-grandparents. Does anyone have any ideas or suggestions as to how I might confirm this?
