Mabel Frances Curtis late Bailey formally Frazer
 
 

Mabel Frances Isobel CURTIS, late BAILEY formerly FRAZER, pictured here sometime in the 1930's was a first cousin of my grandfather. We believe she carried out quite extensive researches into her FRAZER ancestry. The results of her research were used by her brother to secure a grant of arms. The grant named to Edward Haslet Frazer can be seen here. This document along with another were given to the Society of Genealogists in London by Lady Saltoun in 1955. These, I believe, had either been given to her or passed on to her by Mabel.
As a member of the society I was able to locate and copy them. To see a her will made on the 10th Novemer 1969, just a month before her death on 9th Nov 1970 follow this link here.

I have quite an extensive family tree, drawn, so I believied by Mabel and my paternal Grandmother. However events and additional facts have now led me to doubt this. The writing has been checked by her daughter and family and they are adament that the writing is not her's. My father has also cast doubt upon this theory, now saying that he's not sure the writing belongs to his mother either! So I'm left with an extensive family tree relating to the FRAZER surname with no real way of proving the detail shown on it at all.

Mabel was married twice firstly in 1931 to Arthur BAILEY and secondly in 1939 to Oscar CURTIS. She had a daughter by her first marriage. This daughter, Deidrie Elizabeth, married and became Mrs James of County Leicestershire.
