Frank Eastman, portrait and landscape painter, was born on 27th April 1878, at Anerley, Surrey, the third son of Hugh Thomas Eastman (1843–1914), an architect and land surveyor, and his wife Agnes (née Goodes, 1845–1899). Eastman’s artistic training was at the Royal Academy Schools, which he entered on 24th January 1899, graduating in January 1904. In July 1900 he won a two-year British Institution scholarship valued at £50 per annum and in 1901 a two-year Landseer Scholarship in painting from the RA. At the 1901 census he was living with his parents, at 148 Croydon Road, Penge, though they later moved to Sydenham. On 2nd September 1905, aged 27 and described as ‘Artist’, Eastman married at All Saints, Battersea Park, to (Edith) Maud Mair, then also 27 and herself an artist, apparently usually called Maud.
