The tradition of the family is that the Frames were Covenantors who due to persecutions, left Scotland and settled in the north of Ireland. Later on some of them came from there to America and in 1754, the names of David and James Frame appear for the first time on the assessment list of New Londonw Township, Chester County, PA. It is possible they were brothers. David is listed as a Freeman, (showing he was not married) hense was bornin in or before 1732.
