Hello,
Clive you say a tree was produced by your grandfather, where did he get his information from? Who did he think was Henry Forresters (b1698) parents?

Also can you shed any light on the mother of Mary Tweedie who was the mother of John Forrester. Ive found the marriage for James Tweedie and Elizabeth Borthwick, and it states that Elizabeths father was William Borthwick. All the trees ive seen say her parents were Thomas Borthwick and Bessie Notman.
Can you help?

Hello Fellow researchers.

I have just read through this thread seeking information.
and can see much material which is of great interest to me.

My connection is James FORRESTER 1777 - he appears to be a 4th GGF of mine.
I wonder if anyone still reading has a copy of the obit for Jervis I would love to see it.

I see that this thread is quite dusty But hope it pings up on someones inbox.

Many Thanks Martin

Hi Martin, I have sent you a DM. I descend from Jervis's brother Emanuel.

Greetings Tom.

I arrived on this thread following a visit to St Mary's at Bucknall just last week (Jan 2020). I don't know who I expected to find but I was very pleased to have located Emanuel FORRESTER's epic Gravestone.
A little internet work got me here.

I  have copies of:-

1) John's will (1723-1780 ) and
2) Emanuel's Will (1769-1836)

Both wills are extremely useful. John identifies himself at Launders Bank. Emanuel is not too specific about his property.

What is for sure is that the family is huge. I reckon the KINGPIN -
John and Mary FORRESTER produced 12 Children.
Working very roughly and not investigating each resultant family too thoroughly I estimate that those 12 individuals produced at least 82 more children at the very next generation.

Therefore mistakes are inevitable.
BUT
researching is very rewarding.

Martin

OK
here is the gravestone - I have had to reduce it by 80pc to get it on the post.
Hope you can read it.
I can't get the 4 page will to anything worth sending so will need to get 3 posts in first..

Yes that is exactly what I thought.

I initially took it to be 1856 - which then does not fit.
BUT zooming in it becomes clear.

It is 1836 - so all is good.
I am working on the will.
