Frederick John Fraser1

M, b. 6 May 1867
     Frederick John Fraser was born on 6 May 1867 in the Free High Church Manse, Inverness, Scotland.1,2,3 He was the son of Rev. Donald Fraser D.D. and Theresa Eliza Isabella Gordon.1 Frederick John Fraser appears on the census of 4 April 1881 at 3 Cambridge Square, London.1 On 12 September 1888 he started military service as a 2nd Lieutenant in the Liverpool Regiment and was seconded to the Indian Staff Corps in 1892. In 1912 he is listed as a Major, Second Double Company Commander in the 33rd Punjabis and Lt. Colonel 46th Punjabis 12 September 1914.4 Fraser wrote several plays and the lyrics to many songs, some of which were performed by Amy Woodforde-Finden. He took action to recover damages for plagiarism of a plot of one of his plays. This was reported in a several newspapers:

Loud and frequent laughter was heard in Mr Justice Darling's crowded court during the hearing of the action brought by Captain Frederick J. Fraser against Mr George Edwardes, the well-known theatrical manager, who, he alleges, appropriated the "general scheme" of 'The Cingalee" from a play submitted to him under the title of "The Hanjiahn, or The Lotus Girl."
Mr George Edwardes, wearing a light grey suit, joined heartily in the hilarity provoked now and again by Mr Justice Darling's witticisms, and Mr Hayden Coffin, Miss Louie Pounds, Mr Pinero, Mr Huntley Wright, Mr Lionel Monckton, Captain Basil Hood, Mr Adrian Rose and Mr Howard Talbot followed the case with intense interest.
Mr Bankes, K.C., described the interview which took place between Mr J.L. Tanner and Captain Fraser after Mr Edwardes had agreed to produce "The Lotus Girl," on the understanding that the officer collaborated with Mr Tanner in making the dialogue more humorous.
In March, 1903, Mr Edwardes wrote to Captain Fraser's solicitors in London, saying that as a consequence of the difficulty about collaboration he had decided not to utilise Captain Fraser's play. "At that very time," said counsel, "Mr Tanner must have been writing the play, for in August he was actually in communication with Mr Anstey with reference to their writing up a Babu part for Mr Huntley Wright. This character was not to be taken from Mr Anstey's book 'Babu Jaberjee, B. A.' to which Captain Fraser had himself referred Mr Edwardes as a good model for a Huntley Wright part." Then counsel plunged into a glowing description of "The Lotus Girl," its beautiful Kashmir scenery, its characters, and its plot. One of the scenes was a lake fringed with wild iris. "When Mr Tanner changed the scene from Kashmir to Ceylon in his own play he took the iris .with him, and wild iris does not grow in Ceylon," said counsel. "But this was not the only mistake committed by Mr Tanner in copying," added Mr Bankes. "In 'The Lotus Girl' was the character of an Eastern potentate who, being a Kashmir Mahometan, would have a large number of wives; in fact, in the play he wanted to marry as many as 20 of the characters. But Mr Tanner made his Ceylon ruler also the possessor of a harem. Now, a ruler in Ceylon must be a Buddhist, who does not approve of harems."
"A Buddhist?" remarked Mr Justice Darling. "He was a bigamist, too." The court rippled with merriment.
"The only difference between the plays," concluded Mr Bankes, "is that Mr Tanner introduced a character named Lady Patricia Vane."
Then Captain Fraser described his various interviews with Mr Edwardes, with scene-painters, costume designers, and, finally, with Mr Huntley Wright. The latter objected to playing a native part, as suggested by Mr Anstey's "Babu" book.
"Mr Edwardes told me that Huntley Wright would have to play what he was told," said the captain. There was not a vestige of smile on the captain's face, but the court roared with laughter.
"In 'The Cingalee, he continued, "there was a half-caste girl, who should, of course, have no caste mark, but who was identified by mach a mark. In my play the Babu had the mark."
"That reminds me of Box and Cox." murmured Mr Justice Darling, meditatively, "and of the man who was identified because he did not have a strawberry mark on his arm."
The Babu in Captain Fraser's scenario was described by Mr Justice Darling, with the manuscript before him, in the words: "He has been partly educated and called to the bar."
Rows of grey wigs shook with mirth as the judge read the description in tones of sorrow rather than of anger.
There was another shout of laughter when Captain Fraser referred to the fact that, as in "The Lotus Girl," there was a lotus lake in "The Cingalee." This was in spite of the fact that there was no such lake in Ceylon. "I maintain that they took my lake," exclaimed the captain in a voice of thunder.
The "Hanjiahn" boat girls are fair to look upon, but the tea girls in Ceylon are coolies from Madras, "the very blackest and ugliest of their kind," exclaimed the captain. "The tea girls in 'The Cingalee' came from Kashmir.
Captain Fraser continued that while in "Hanjiahn" he introduced a party of officers dressed to play polo, a party of tea planters came on in "The Cingalee" in similar costume.
The "chee chee" accent, peculiar to Hindus who had learnt English, and found in the "Hanjiahn," was also found in "The Cingalee.'' Characters, said: "I am veree soree," instead of "I am very sorry.
"In "The Cingalee" one of the characters said to a friend. "Sell yourself, old Chutney. Sell your black hair, old Bombay duck."
Captain Fraser claimed that "Bombay duck" was taken from "The Lotus Girl."
"What is a Bombay duck?" asked the judge.
"It is a dried fish," said the captain solemnly.
"You know that musical comedy in written on conventional lines?" asked Mr Issacs, who appeared for Mr Edwardes.
"We know they all are," said the judge in a weary tone. Then his lordship proceeded to examine photographs of pretty Kashmir girls. "I see that Captain Fraser has written on the back of them, 'The prettiest do not allow themselves to be photographed.' "
"It is very different in this country," said Mr Rufus Isaacs.
"In 'San Toy,' 'The Geisha' snd 'The Cingalee,' is there not an English officer who falls in love with the beautiful girl of each country?" continued counsel.
"It must be a common habit." remarked the judge.
"Not peculiar to English officers abroad," replied Mr Isaacs.
Mr Isaacs was putting to Captain Fraser a series of questions as to the commonplace nature of the general scheme of musical comedies, when Mr Justice Darling said: "If these plays are so common, why are they not written by machinery?"

The jury had found for the plaintiff, and awarded him £3000 damages. The Otago Witness, 17 May 1905.

John Fraser1

M, b. circa 1833, d. July 1871
     John Fraser. A missionary.1 He was born circa 1833. He was the son of John Fraser and Lillias Fraser.1 John Fraser died in July 1871 near Bagdad, Iraq,

DEATH OF MR. JOHN FRASER, NEAR BAGHDAD.

Another faithful soldier of Jesus Christ has fallen at his post - the post of danger and of honour. Unconnected with any society, Mr. Fraser has, for nearly ten years, been seeking to gather in souls among the Arabic speaking races in the East. Egypt, the Holy Land, and latterly Persia, were the scenes of his labours. Mostly single-handed he has delivered his message - " a voice crying in the wilderness." The great day alone shall declare the results of this devoted missionary's testimony and work. His was a loving and gentle spirit in all his intercourse with others; only to himself was he severe and exacting.

We knew that our friend had been weakened by dysentery at Baghdad, upwards of two months ago, but a few lines from himself, published in this paper, led us to hope that he was convalescent. A rumour from Beirout reached his brothers (Rev. Donald Fraser, of London, and Rev. Wm. Fraser, of Edinburgh), last week, which re-awakened our anxieties, and these, alas for us! have all been confirmed.

Early in August the Persian Government ordered a quarantine doctor to visit one of the plague and famine-stricken regions, seven days' journey from Baghdad ; this official, it appears, invited Mr. Fraser to accompany him. Our friend, ever ready, like his Master, to relieve human misery, accepted the invitation, and started on his errand of mercy, but, we fear, in a condition quite unfitted for such exertion in such a climate. Three days' journey had been accomplished, when a message came from above -"Come up higher!" - and death by sunstroke became the entrance into rest for this solitary worker.

" Help, Lord, for the godly man ceaseth, for the faithful fail from among the children of men ! "

The Inverness Courier has the following particulars :- " Mr. John Fraser, now in his 39th year, was the fourth son of the late Provost Fraser, of Inverness, and bore his father's name. The eldest son of the family is Mr. Alexander Fraser, of Cobourg, Ontario, and a member of the Legislative Assembly of that province; the second son is the Rev. Donald Fraser, of Marylebone; and the third the Rev. William Fraser, of Edinburgh. Though very thoroughly educated for the Presbyterian ministry, John Fraser never sought ordination, and, showing strong bent toward individual freedom of action, never acted under any missionary committee. His chosen work was to serve as a pioneer, opening up new ground, and pressing forward in Christ's name into arduous fields and among neglected populations: work for which he was singularly qualified by his faith, courage, self-denial, and elevation of spirit. His labours in this country were so abundant and wide-spread that he will be deeply lamented by many in both Highlands and Lowlands. His first labours in the East were at Cairo, in Egypt, where he laid the foundation of a thorough acquaintance with the Arabic language. Thence he removed to Beirout, where he taught for some time in the Syrian Protestant College - making excursions into the region of the Lebanon, and not only preaching in villages, but reading the Greek Testament in the Maronite and Greek Catholic convents.

" In Baghdad, his last station, he laboured among Mohammedans and Jews, and cast wistful eyes towards Persia; but like Henry Martyn, whose spirit he breathed, he has died and been buried far away from his native land and kindred. But he has not lived or died in vain. He rests from his labours, and his works follow him. He is a witness, that the spirit of heroism and martyrdom is not extinct; and that, while men who love their lives lose them, a man who hates his own life, for the Lord's sake,' keeps it to life eternal !'" The Christian, 21 September 1871.1,2

He was buried on 29 July 1871 in Shirween, Iraq.

John Fraser, youngest son of Mr. John Fraser, Provost of Inverness, was educated privately till he joined the Fifth Class at the Academy, in the session of 1845-46. Thence he proceeded to King's College and University, Aberdeen; and there graduated with honours as M.A. in 1850. He then took a full course of theological study in connection with the Free Church of Scotland. But on the eve of receiving licence as a preacher ' zeal for the evangelisation of the world made him shrink from official connection with any one branch of the Christian Church.' He became therefore an Evangelist at large. He acquired the power of speaking the Gaelic, Welsh, French, Italian, German, Arabic, and Persian languages.

After having had much success in his labours, chiefly in the Highlands and Islands of Scotland, he worked for some time in Egypt. Thence Fraser went to Beyrout, where he taught Mathematics and Astronomy in the Armenian College; improving his knowledge of Arabic, and preaching in the villages of Lebanon. Fraser then crossed from Aleppo to Baghdad. There, and in the regions round about, he preached and distributed Bibles, etc. After a serious illness, he rode with a Medical Inspector to the borders of Persia, in which country he hoped to find an opening for Mission work, but he was struck down by the sun, and lived only half an hour, and was buried at Shirween, on 29th July 1871.

John Fraser is described as an 'intense student of the Bible in the original languages;' and there are not wanting evidences of the good that he was instrumental in doing during his short but scattered life - scattered but not wasted.

We are indebted for these details to Fraser's brother, the Rev. William Fraser, minister of the Presbyterian Church of England, Brighton. The Rev. Donald Fraser, D.D., Presbyterian Church of England, Marylebone, is an elder brother.

Very recently certain Christian workers in Cairo, Jerusalem, and Beyrout have spoken in warm and grateful terms of Fraser's usefulness; and a handsome Arabic Hymnal, with music, lately published at Beyrout, has been characterised as ' a fruit of his enthusiastic and practical stimulus to hallowed song' in Syria.

Some of those who knew and loved John Fraser have, it is understood, offered to contribute, and collect facts if one of his brothers would undertake to write his 'Life;' but they have thought they were best fulfilling his wishes by continuing to leave him - like his tomb on the border of Persia - without an inscription.

The last appearance of John Fraser at the Cumming Club was in January 1854. Chronicles of the Cumming club and memories of old academy days 1841-1846, compiled by Alexander Fraser, p. 164.

Lillias Fraser1

F, b. 1803, d. 19 February 1835
     Of Kirkill, Inverness. Lillias Fraser was born in 1803.1 She was the daughter of Rev. Donald Fraser M.A. and Jane Gordon.1,2 Lillias Fraser married John Fraser, son of Alexander Fraser and Annabella Munro. Lillias Fraser died on 19 February 1835 in Inverness

My mother was Lillias Fraser, daughter of the Rev. Donald Fraser, M.A., Minister of the Parish of Kirk-hill near Inverness. Of her I cannot say much from personal knowledge, for she died when I was little more than a child; but there stands full and clear in my memory the figure of a tall and graceful woman, bright, thoughtful, and always sweet and kind. Her early death, which was caused by some sort of fever was a heavy blow to her husband and a woeful loss to the six children who survived her. (Only two of us now remain !). What a stupor of grief fell on us ! I remember it still, and all the incidents of the funeral. There were no coaches; the street was densely crowded, and citizens of all classes pressed forward to carry the bier. My father could not bear the publicity, so his three sons represented him; and in such attire of woe! According to the fashion of the time and place, we had new suits of black cloth. Our little hats were covered with crape, with long ends falling behind. Our cuffs were covered with white linen “weepers." We wore white neckerchiefs, with white things called “hangers” depending from them, and almost hiding our waistcoats. All this added to our misery; but I think that it also imparted some sense of family importance, and so helped to dry my tears.1
