Hi Sophie,
have you checked out these websites.

www.wishful-thinking.org.uk/genuki/STS/Bucknall/MIs.html

Also i think i have found his gravestone in St.Peters church yard in the parish of Caverswall.

If you scroll down the page it is 3/4 of the way down.

cheers,

Hi Sophie,I was tracing my Forresters and noticed your messages.Just wondered how you got on.I have got back to the earlier Emanuel Forrester but no luck taking it back further.There are hints at a possible move back to the Edingburgh area where the Forresters have a significant historical connection.

  Have you seen the referances to Jervis Forrester the Moorland Jew of Cellerhead who wrote Ballads ? (staffs past track)

   Possibly you have this all sorted out by now lol

              Regards,Steve

Hi Sophie,I would be very interested to know of anything more about the Forresters.I have seen the Forresters traced back to Borthwick Castle on Ancestry but don't know what real evidence there is going back from Emanuel.
 I understand his father was John but heard that there were 2 conflicting set of birth details. One I was told has him born in the Wetley Moors/ Cellerhead area and another born in Scotland so not sure if these are the same person.I haven't seen the evidence for these but it sounds like you may have so eager to know more.
  I also wondered if you know where about in the Armshead area the Forresters had their farm as I think it only indicated Armshead on the census.
 My connection is through Catherine Forrester b 1837 Wyrley Bank who's father was Emanuel Forrester.
  Do You know why Jervis  Forrester was called the Moorland Jew and which Jervis he was ?

        Many thanks

               Steve
