Frederick Singleton was born in 1864 in Allington, Lincolnshire, the ninth of ten children of a coachman and groom named Robert Singleton and his wife Eliza Worth Bonser. Frederick's early childhood was spent in Allington, with the family still there in August 1871 when his younger sister Ada Jane was born. By November 1872 the family had moved away to Aston on Trent in Derbyshire, where Frederick's mother Eliza died, aged 46. He was eight when she died. After Eliza's death, the family seems to have dispersed - Robert and his two youngest daughters were living together in Bainton, Northamptonshire by the 1881 census, whilst the older children were all spread out. By 1881, Frederick was living with his brother Bonser in Nottingham. They were both working as boot makers.

Frederick next appears in the 1891 census in Sheffield working as a shoe maker, but after that has not been traced for twenty years, with his next sighting being in the 1911 census when he ws living in Manchester. In the intervening twenty years he appears to have married a Mary and had two children, although Mary was away from home on census night.

Frederick has yet to be traced after the 1911 census.
