      THE FREDERICK FAMILY OF BURWOOD PARK WALTON ON THAMES: DEEDS AND PAPERS 1558-1913
      Administrative history:
      Christopher Frederick founder of the family came to England from Hainault during the reign of Elizabeth I and enjoyed the queen's patronage. He became a member of the Worshipful Company of Barber-Surgeons in 1595 and was appointed Sergeant-Surgeon to James I. The family settled in the City of London in the parish of St Olave Old Jewry where they acquired considerable property.
      The earliest member of the family for whom records survive in this accession is Christopher's fourth son John (1601-1685) who was Lord Mayor of London 1661-1662. He was knighted in 1660. His son Thomas (1650-1720) followed the family tradition of marrying an heiress Leonara Maresco in 1676. They had five children: two sons John and Thomas (1680-1731) and three daughters the youngest of whom Jane became Duchess of Atholl by her second marriage. Thomas's marriage was stormy and after a series of lawsuits over the Maresco property he and his wife separated in 1715 (see 183/28/6).
      The elder son John was created a baronet in 1723. His two sons succeeded him in turn John in 1755 and Thomas in 1757. When the latter died in 1770 without leaving a son the title passed to his cousin John Frederick of Burwood who became 4th baronet.
      Thomas Frederick the younger son of Thomas (1650-1720) served in the East India Company and became governor of Fort St David and Fort St George Madras where he married in 1705 and where most of his children were born. He was a director of the South Sea Company and was knighted in 1721. The City of London properties were left to him by his father who also left large legacies to his sons. Thomas used his legacy to acquire the Burwood estate at Walton on Thames. His three eldest sons Thomas John (later 4th baronet) and Charles and three daughters Mary Henrietta and Hannah appear in these records. Mary married Alexander Hume MP and Hannah his brother Abraham who was created a baronet in 1769. Henrietta married Luke Spence of South Malling Sussex (see 183/22/1-17). The younger Thomas Frederick (1707-1740) was MP for Shoreham-by-Sea West Sussex until his death when his brother John took over the seat. He relinquished it to his younger brother Charles in 1746 and became MP for West Looe in Cornwall.
      Charles Frederick was MP for Shoreham 1746-1754 and then for Queenborough Kent until 1784. He entered the Office of Ordnance and was Comptroller in 1749 at the time of the celebrations of the Peace of Aix-la-Chapelle being responsible for the ill-fated firework display. In 1761 he was created a Knight of the Bath. In 1746 he married the Hon Lucy Boscawen a daughter of Viscount Falmouth. They had three sons Charles Thomas Lenox and Edward Boscawen Frederick and two daughters Augusta who married Thomas Prescott and Lucy who married Crispe Molineux.
      The baronetcy passed to the descendants of Sir Charles on the death of the sixth baronet Sir Richard in 1873.
      Related families:
      POYNTZ: Lady Frederick (Mary Moncrieff) widow of Sir Thomas married William Poyntz in 1736. After his death in 1748 she became involved in a Chancery action over his estate (see 183/32/14-25). The Ricketts family for whom her grandson Edward Boscawen Frederick acted as a trustee were related to Poyntz.
      HUDSON (with VANSITTART TRACY and BOEHM): Sir John Frederick of Burwood married Susanna third and youngest daughter of Sir Roger Hudson of Sunbury Middx a director of the South Sea Company knighted at the same time as John's father Sir Thomas Frederick. Lady Hudson was born Emma Susanna Vansittart and their son (d. 1768) was Vansittart
      Hudson. The other daughters were Anna Maria wife of Robert Tracy and Martha wife of Edward Boehm.
      GARTH: Sir John Frederick 5th baronet married Mary Garth third and youngest daughter of Richard Garth of Morden [see K80/- Garth estate papers].
