Charles Fraser was born on the 7 October 1836 in Clyne, Sutherlandshire, Scotland. He married Jane Houston in 1866 in Sydney. They had nine children together between 1867 and 1884.

Charles Fraser was sworn in as a Supernumerary Constable of the NSW Police Force on the 4th April 1867.  He was confirmed as a Constable on the 1 June 1867 and promoted to Constable 1st Class on the 1 September 1876.

His first child was born at the Police Camp in Forbes. All of his subsequent children were born at Camp Hill, Forbes. In 1880 his young son and another Constable’s son nearly drowned in the Lachlan River. Two employees of the Commercial Bank heard their cries and came to their assistance.
