I have found your entry for Frank Fruin and Alice Turner on this and also the Ancestry web site and feel that there is a connection with my husbands family and your family. I have on my family tree a Frank William Fruin b 1872 who married an Alice Turner b 1877. They were married on the 18/6/1900 at St Michaels Church, Abingdon. The only child that I have for this family on my tree is a Frank Fruin b 3/6/1903 at 15 Vineyard, Abingdon, Berkshire. My Frank William Fruin b 1872 had 17 brothers & sisters, one of whom was named William b 1858 and died in infancy, his parents were John Fruin b 1832 and Catherine Surman b 1840. They were married in 24/11/1857 at St Martin-in-the Fields, London
On looking at your entry on Ancestry, Frank had 2 brothers and a sister as well as a stepmother and another 2 sisters and 1 brother which I did not know about.
I have managed to trace my husbands family back quite a way where the surname was originally spelt Frewin. If you would like any further info on this family if you feel we are talking about the same Frank Fruin please do not hesitate to contact me.
Thanks for taking the time to read all of the above and look forward to hearing from you in the near future.
: I'm wondering if anyone could help me out....my great great grandfather, Frank Fruin, was a member of the Royal Dragoons (England). He was reportedly a squire. My grandfather tells he me he was situated where the current Oxford University is. Could anybody point me in the proper direction for finding out more information on Frank? He married a woman named Alice Turner. They had children, Frank Jr. born 1903, Richard born 1906 (my great grandfather), Jack and Ethel. Frank, Frank Jr, Richard and Jack moved to Canada (sometime between 1906 and 1920). Alice either stayed in England or was deceased at the time. The daughter, Ethel stayed in England as well. I have no information on her.
Any help or traces to these individuals would be extremely helpful and very appreciated!
