    Mad Frankie "Big Foot"Fraser

    ‘Mad Frankie Fraser was the son of a Native American woman and a Canadian fur trader who lived like the character of Leonardo di Caprio in movie The Revenant

    GANGSTER “Mad” Frankie Fraser had a secret Native American past which saw his father and grandparents living and working in brutal conditions as fur traders in the Canadian wilderness, a new book reveals.

    Fraser, who spent 42 years in prison and pulled his victim’s teeth out with pliers in his role as a gangland enforcer, was the son of a Native American woman and a Canadian fur trader who lived like the character of Leonardo di Caprio in the Oscar-winning movie, The Revenant.

    Violence in the family goes back generations and reveals the secrets of one of Britain’s most prolific crime families.

    One of Frank’s relatives was killed by his own men in a gangland-style hit in the Canadian wilderness – in retribution for him beating a colleague to death, it emerged.

    Frank’s grandmother, Cecelia, was an Indian from a tribe living near Fort Hope on the banks Fraser River in British Columbia in the 1880s, who married James Fraser, a fur trader – a half Scots, half Native American working for the Hudson Bay Company.

    Punishment beatings, flogging and death from disease or starvation were a daily reality of life at the fort and traders also faced attacks from wild animals and even rival Native American Indian tribes.

    Frank, who died in 2014, was notorious for his violence and worked with the feared South London Richardson gang, rivals to the Krays in the 1960s.

    He once attacked a Kray henchman with an axe, putting him in hospital. He was known as “Razor Fraser” and beat up so many prison guards and Governors when he was inside that he lost every day of remission on a 20 year sentence.

    The full amazing family history of the Frasers, which covers 100 years on the wrong side of the law, is revealed in the biography Mad Frank and Sons, published by Sidgwick and Jackson.

    When Frank’s father James was born in 1881 the couple sailed in their canoe down the Fraser River to the town of New Westminster – now Vancouver – to have him baptised a Catholic, church records have revealed.

    But James’s upbringing was so brutal that he ran away from the fort and his family at the tender age of TEN to join the Navy, lying about his real age to do so.

    He also covered up the fact that he was mixed race, because children of such marriages suffered racism in 19th century Canada and were called “half-breeds” or “metis” and beaten for speaking their mother tongue.

    I went to school with one of Frankie Fraser's sons here in Brighton, he remains a good friend some 50 years later, always welcome in my home.
    Like most with family connections but never entered 'the business' we all wish people would stop demonizing and glorifying these stories. We too have children and grandchildren who have no knowledge of these days and for good reason.

    A mate worked for one of the sons back in the late 90s/early 00s. He was arrested on the M25. The product in the car was high margin.

    Interesting, cruel but fair, he only ever used violence towards other crooks, cops and screws. It was strictly business, he never mugged anyone or shot up a bar or killed any innocent parties, proper criminal he was.
