Frederick was the son of Frederick and Eliza Lucchesi. He was born in Cambridge and grew up at 82 King Street with his three siblings including Albert Henry [1866-1948]. Frederick’s father Frederick had been born in Florence, Italy and was a sculptor and figure maker. In 1881 Frederick was living at home and working as an errand boy.
He married Susan Maria Baker in 1890 when he was 23 years old. They lived at Alpha Road  and later at Union Terrace  and 4 Clarendon Street . Frederick worked as a bootmakers cutter.
Susan and Frederick had three daughters: Rosetta Catherine [known as Rosie] [1891-1968], Winifred Imelda [1899-1903] and Gwendoline Rita [1905-1993]. In April 1908 their eldest daughter Rosie was accused with 18 years old Felix Beedom of ‘committing damage to plants on Christ’s Pieces…the damage amounting to 1s’. At court Frederick apologised to the Bench, and that Rosie was a ‘very good girl and he was very sorry to see her …(in court) ..that morning. This young man was a friend of hers, and they knew each other very well. They went to the same church’. Both Felix and Rosie were discharged with a caution and she went on to marry Leon Van Den Bogaerde in 1920.
In 1935 Frederick and Susan were living at Milton House, Christ’s Pieces. By the time he died in 1948 they were living at 23 Park Lane in Histon. He left an estate valued at £1,058 0s 5d.
