  • We have the War of the Third Coalition to thank for the name reaching Italy. An 18 year old Danish man named Claus Fabrin was amongst the men sent to fight under the French banner. On the 24th of November 1805 (Claus' 19th birthday), during the Battle of Castelfranco Veneto[1], Claus was severely wounded and could not be moved. After recovering Claus married an Italian girl (identity uncertain, some theories suggest Angela Frasson) and had six children.
  • According to information circulating on FamilySearch, all 6 sons married and had children. However, the big problem is regarding the wives as there is apparent confusion as to which son married which woman. This appears to be because:
    • No Fabrin researcher outside of Italy knows anything about the descendants of Claus
    • There appears to be next to no one who is a descendant of Claus researching their ancestry
  • Currently, it is suspected that there are 33 families that bear the Fabrin name.[2]
