Blackmores, Grovers, Forsters of England

My Great Grandfather was Robert John Forster born in Victree, Durham approx 1855, died 1924. His Father was Francis Forster who was deceased by 1911.

Robert was the Superintendent at Nunhead Cemetery in 1901 when he was also married to Martha (born in Hunmanby, Yorkshire, maiden name unknown) and they had the following children according to the 1901 census:

Margarent Eleanor Jackson Forster b: approx 1884, Hunmanby, Yorkshire
Beatrice Frances Story Forster b: approx 1886, Holloway, London
Robert Francis Forster b: approx 1888, Frittsden, Buckinghamshire
William Adamson Forster b: 1889
Kate Rebecca Forster b: approx 1892, Frittsden, Buckinghamshire
Bertha Elizabeth Forster b: approx 1895, Frittsden, Buckinghamshire
Eugine Dorothea Forster b: approx 1897, Highgate, London


By 1911 Martha was dead and Robert married my Great Grandmother, Florence Emily Grover born approx 1878 in London. Her parents were Alfred Henry Grover and Eliza Annie Blackmore (married in 1873 in St Saviour Southwark), she had a sister Amelia, and brother Alfred.

Robert and Florence had my grandfather in 1911. Florence died in 1958.

If you find anything familiar in there, I'd love to hear from you. I have a whole heap of half cousins out there somewhere, I'm sure!

Cheers
Julie (Auckland, New Zealand)
