Frank Wittenoom was born in York, Western Australia in 1855. He was the grandson of John Burdett Wittenoom, one of the first chaplains in the Swan River Colony. His brother was Sir Edward Charles (Horne) Wittenoom, a member of the Western Australian Legislative Council for 34 years.
He built a Queen Anne style house in Perth, called "The Terraces", in the late 1890s and extended it in 1900. In 1987, the house was classified by the National Trust of Australia and has been added to the State Register of Heritage Places.
