    Stumbled on this site today – strange coincidence! I am descended from Thomas Frewen, eldest son of Rev. John Frewen (1559-1628) of Church House by his second wife Helen Hunt. Thomas settled in Ireland in 1650.

    The Frewen-Lord family descends from Mary Frewen (born March 1726) who married William Lord on 15 Jan 1750. On the13 Sept. 1749 <>
    Mary was the daughter of Thomas Frewen and Mary Bishop. She was one of eight children, her three brothers died without issue, so the male line of that branch became extinct. On marriage she kept the name, hyphenating it with Lord.

    About ten years ago when I lived in NYC I corresponded with a John Frewen-Lord – an Englishman who at that time was living in Canada, although I think he has now returned to the UK. He had done considerable research on the descent from William & Mary as he was interested a possible connection with Walter Frewen-Lord. If you have not been in touch with him I will search old saved files for his email (‘tho it would be an old one!)

    Thanks Robert, I have met John he come over to Australia a few years ago when he found so many of us (Frewen-Lord’s) here in Australia. I have been researching the family tree for about 15 years and mainly concentrated on the family in Australia. But am looking to go to England next year and thought I would try to meet some relatives. John is now living in England. Thank you for your offer tho. The families of the Frewen’s and Lord’s is very extensive and its been fun finding out about our family.
    Regards Barbara
