Yes. Alan, always a possible link.  However I have insufficient wherewithal to research in UK, and have also come to understand that Isaac Woods and Sarah Willsworth may not be Directly Related to the Mary Woods on the tree I am researching.  Good luck with your search though.

 Emma seems to now be the only mystery, but that doesn't matter, as she is not a direct line.    Grateful for everyone's input.

Thank you for checking.  Solves the mystery of the introduction of Willsworth to the Forster family. Great work. :)

Sorry, no information about Mary Woods, only that she was apparently John Willsworth Forster's mother.  3 more generations after John carry Willsworth as a second Christian name in the line I am following.  Thank you for checking

Thanks everyone so much for all this help.   I have to say my research skills need a bit of a shake up as I had tried to find the entry into Australia several times without success.  Great to have a mystery solved.

Thank you for confirming/updating my information.   Were you able to check for 1841 and 1851 census for Joseph, by any chance?    I haven't been able to find his name on a passenger list coming into Australia, and it would narrow the search if I knew he was still in UK in 1851.   :)

In 1806, John Willsworth Forster was baptised in Barrowden, son of William Forster and Mary nee Woods who had married in 1804.  He married Catharine Shelton Swift in Barrowden etc.  Does anyone know where the "Willsworth" name originates?  thank you

Leicestershire / Joseph Donisthorpe Thompson born Leicestershire
« on: Tuesday 02 January 18 03:05 GMT (UK)  »
Info I have is that he born in 1801, son of Elizabeth Donisthorpe & Thomas Thompson. Married Anne Edwards, 2 children Joseph D born 1829 b.? and Anne Jane born London c.1844.  30.11.1848 Brit newspaper states insolvent.  In Australia by about 1852.  No proof documentation.  (I believe also his George campaigned for abolition of slavery)
Can anyone either confirm or expand on the UK life of Elizabeth & Thomas please?

Thanks Trish.  Very kind of you to list the Census so I could just copy and paste!   Also for all your research.  I still haven't digested everything yet!  :)
