Thanks for dropping by.
I have been adding some Leicestershire Frewins to the database over the past couple of days or so, so it may be worth re-checking that if you haven't looked recently.
In particular, there seems to be a connection with Quenby, Leicestershire, with Anna Frewin somewhere near the heart of it. Are you connected to this Leicestershire branch do you know?
I can tell you, having looked at both the 1881 census and 1901 census recently, that there are very few Frewins/Frewens/Fruins etc from that part of the world prior to 1900, it looks to be about half a dozen families perhaps.
The Frewen-Turner's seem make an appearance in Leicester early in the 19th century, the IGI has John Junior Frewen-Turner and Charles Hay Frewen-Turner being born in Sapcote Leicestershire.
Do you have any details of your ancestors prior to 1900 to see if we can link up some NZ Frewins with families here?
