Fracken Early Origins



The surname Fracken was first found in Holland, where the name became noted for its many branches in the region, each house acquiring a status and influence which was envied by the princes of the region. The name was first recorded in North Brabant, a province of the Netherlands. The principal cities are Eindhoven, Helmund and Tilburg. Historically one province, it is now North and South, the north being a part of Holland. In their later history the surname became a power unto themselves and were elevated to the ranks of nobility as they grew into this most influential family.
