I have John Augustus Fredric Snr.married Isabella Miller are in my family tree.They had Fredrick Augustus Fredric born 1868 in Invercargill New Zealand. They had a daughter Ruth & son John. I believe this could be the Fredric family you are searching for.

Hi Janet, Yes, it is the same family and I contacted a Niel Frederick in Invercargill. But, he didn't aknowledge J.A.F. died in a workhouse. Which I know for a fact he did, because I have the church documents from Middlesex. Some of them have also been removed for some reason or another, which is intriiging me. It is the history behind him, J.A.F. being born in Prussia and why he went to England that I am searching information about. So, if anyone knows more about that part, I would appreciate that.
Kind regards Paula
