I got back this evening to find an email in my inbox from Bucks Family History Society.
I asked to run a search for Frewins in Bucks last night - guess what turned up?

I spent the day at the PRO, found a whole mass of stuff on Richard the soldier, so much that it will probably need thirty or more hours of attention to check it all.
The PRO have every single Pay and Muster roll for Richard's regiment from before he joined to after he was discharged, and very revealing it is too. It seems he wasn't the only Frewin in that regiment either....
Once I have it organised I will post it here.
I still don't know whether he is a relative or not, but the material is absolutely fascinating, and well worth spending time on.
