Forson Family Genealogy Forum
I live in Edinburgh and have been researching Forsons at New Register House for about five years. I have many family trees, not all linked. One tree begins with Alexander Forson who married Elizabeth Auld, 21 May 1782, Edinburgh. I had believed him to be the Alexander who was born 5 July 1757 but had no proof. My tree from him covers a further four (possibly five, it is not updated!) generations to end 19th C. My main family tree begins with William born about 1666, married Esther Foster and runs unbroken till the beginning of 20th C. I am thrilled to make the American connection with Thomas, born 10 March 1837 in Dryburgh. I have dates of birth of all his siblings. Did you know that the obelisk at Dryburgh Abbey says the writing was carved by David Forson/Phorson? (Thomas's father).
Have you any specific questions which I may be able to answer?
