Origin of the surname “Fraser:”

 

The Frasers of the Scottish Highland, of whom this genealogy probably refers, are of Norman (northwest France) origin dating back at least to 790.  The name is said to derive from the Seigneurie of Freseliere of Anjou.  Simon Fraser, who gave a gift to the Abbey of Kelso in 1160, is the first of his line to be recorded in France.  His relative, Pierce Frisel/Fraser accompanied William "the Conqueror" in to England in 1086.

 

The first instance of clan Fraser was on the borders of Scotland about 1160, just 90 years after William defeated the Saxons, who had reined in England since the Romans left roughly 500 years before.  The Frasers migrated north into the highlands, and have played a prominent part in Scottish history.

    1. Biographical notes:

 

Born 1702 in Scotland.  Died in or after 1759 on a trip to the West Indies.  Suspected to have emigrated/fled (as a political refugee) from England to Connecticut about 1745, settling at Guilford, New Haven County, Connecticut.  By one account was employed as a shopkeeper and apothecary.  By another account was an importer of spices and drugs from the West Indies, operating his own ships.  Described in Guilford records as a "Merchant."   On 20 May 1745 executed a deed at Guilford (on record at Old York in the District of Maine, Massachusetts) which begins: “I Alexander Fraser of Milford in ye County of New Haven, Colony of Connecticut….” 

 

A deed of entailment (dated 20 Sep 1753) and a statement recorded in a book in the handwriting of his son, Charles Fraser, indicates Alexander was one of the largest landowners in New England, owning some 50,000 acres “eastward of Boston, in the county of York, in the province of the Massachusetts Bay, in New England, being a tract of land laying twenty-eight miles upon the sea and about thirty-two miles back….”  Charles Fraser (Para. 3.b., below), Alexander’s second child, wrote the following regarding this property:

 

“Between the years 1740 and 1750 my maternal grandfather Timothy Boardman purchased of a family of Stockwells a certain tract of land lying on Broad Bay eighteen miles on the Bay and twenty miles into the country and the said Timothy Boardman borrowing of my father, Alexander Fraser, one thousand pounds in money, did sell and convey unto him fifty thousand acres of said land by deed, which deed is on record with all the former deeds and conveyances of said land at Old York in the District of Maine, in which District said land lieth and is taken up and settled without purchasing.  And now the heirs of the said Timothy Boardman and Alexander Fraser, both deceased, have laid claim to said lands and there is a report that said land is established to the heirs of the above said Timothy and Alexander.

 

“Now Alexander Fraser, oldest son of the above Alexander Fraser, holds a deed of entailment of all the lands contained in said tract except two thousand acres.  500 acres for me and 500 acres for may eldest sisters – the rest to pay his debts.

 

(Signed) Charles Fraser”

 

About this time (1753) Alexander Fraser, Sr. apparently left New England, residing until at least 1759 in the West Indies.

Married Lyman T. Thayer (photos) (b. 1809, d. abt 1888), who at the time resided and worked at Phelps, Ontario County, New York, on 2 August 1832.  In 1834 they moved to Palmyra, Lenawee County, Michigan, where they resided until 1841, when they moved to Adrian, Ohio.  In 1843 they moved last to a house at the corner of Summit and Magnolia Streets, Toledo, Ohio.  Anna was a member of the Presbyterian Church from age 16.

 

Anna and Lyman had five children (two sons and three daughters), all of whom died young.  The oldest (a son) lived to age 13.  With respect to that, the following is quoted from a 31 August 1926 letter Gertrude (Fraser) Waggoner (dau of Orris, below) sent to Elizabeth "Betty" Morton (Harrison) Mead: "My dear Elizabeth, I sent you last week a brooch that belonged to your great-great Aunt Anna Lee Fraser Thayer.  I have worn it many years and several times have had strangers ask me about it.  I want to give you its history – Aunt Anna had 5 children, all died in childhood.  She wanted to preserve a bit of the hair of each so went to her jeweler, Mr. Cook of Toledo, and asked him to make her a pin.  He had this pin made for her and where the corals are no were balls woven of the hair of the 5 children.  After some years she tired of wearing the pin and asked Mr. Cook what he could put in the place of the hair and he suggested the 5 corals.  I was to have had a valuable cameo & pearl set after my aunt passed away, but my uncle sent me this pin instead.  I thought if I sent it to you myself I would be sure you had it.  The corals are set in cement and will not stand hot water, as I found when I tried washing them and one went down the outlet to my washet and was lost.  Another time I lost one but my jeweler could replace them and after that when I lost the smallest one he could find no more in all New York, but a friend gave me a bead off her string.  I think they are all secure now.  Hoping you will enjoy wearing the pin as much as I have.  With love, cousin Gertrude."  Elizabeth (Harrison) Mead subsequently gave the pin to her 1st cousin, Ruth Frances (Bryant) Rubright, who presented it to her daughter, Leigh Bryant (Rubright) Lasik.

Wheaton of Allegany, this county, Mrs. H. N. Blair of Blockville, New York, all of whom were at her bedside in her last sickness.

"Mrs. Bryant has witnessed the changes incident to pioneer life in Cattaraugus County for nearly sixty years and seen the forest fade away succeeded by green fields and bountiful harvests together with the rapid growth and advancements of civilization.  Her firm convictions and force of character were always for right, endearing herself to all with whom she came in contact.  She was a faithful and devoted wife and mother, and for more than fifty years a devout Christian and member of the Presbyterian Church of Ellicottville.  She was buried in Sunset Hill Cemetery at Ellicottville, October 14, 1887."
