Frampton was the son of an unmarried teacher and a Nigerian engineer. At three months he was placed in a Barnardos Home, where he was undervalued, abused, and very unhappy. His mother harbored hopes of being able to care for him herself again, but married a man who would not allow her contact with him, and she soon decided to have nothing more to do with the boy.

At three he was fostered to a family but they sent him back - they said he was a bad influence on their nine-year-old son. He was not fostered again. His mother died when he was 12.

He left the children's home when he was 14. He eventually went to university, became national chair of the Labour Party's Young Socialists, and a writer (Emilia Romagna: Italy's Hidden Gem; Hidden Kerala; Fresh Players, New Tactics; Hidden Greenwich: The Travel Guide).

As an adult he traced his mother's husband and their two children.
