Frank Randall is an English-born historian in the 20th century. He is married to Claire Beauchamp Randall, and has one daughter, Brianna Randall. He traces his lineage back to Jonathan Randall, a famous English officer involved with the Jacobite Rising in 1745, and Mary Hawkins.
Little about Frank's early life before meeting Claire is known.
Meeting and marrying ClaireEdit
Frank first met Claire when he came to consult her uncle, Quentin Beauchamp, an archaeologist and historian, about a point of French philosophy as it related to Egyptian religious practice. After a period of time, they were married, and spent a brief two-day honeymoon in the Scottish Highlands, followed by a year together before the outbreak of World War II.
Claire and Frank were separated for most of the war. Frank trained as an officer, and Claire as a nurse, and both served their country in their respective roles for the duration. Once the war was over, Claire and Frank reunited in 1945 (1946 in Cross Stitch) and decided to have a second honeymoon in Scotland to reestablish their marriage. They stayed in a town called Inverness in the north of Scotland, which was situated near an ancient stone circle.
Events of the NovelsEdit
One morning during their second honeymoon, Claire went up the hill to the nearby stone circle to collect some plant samples. She did not return. Unbeknownst to Frank at the time, Claire had fallen through the cleft in the main stone and had been transported back in time to 1743.
