Forrester

The name Forrester in Ireland is usually of immigrant origin having been brought to the country by settlers from England especially during the seventeenth century. The main settlement point was the Province of Ulster and it is here that the majority of descendants can still today be found.

Origen: Escocés, Normando. The Forrester surname was no doubt taken on by someone who either lived in or near a forest, or perhaps worked in the forest. The Middle English word "forest" referred specifically to an area of woodland reserved by law as hunting grounds for the king or his nobles. No doubt, as a surname, Forrester would have appeared independently in various parts of Britain. First found in Northumberland where they were seated from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D. Early records include John Forester, listed in the Pipe Rolls of Surrey of 1183, and Richard le Forester listed in the Feet of Fines of Essex in 1240. There was also a Shropshire family of this name, who held custody of part of the Wrekin forest. An early record of this family lists a Hugh Forester as a witness 1187.

Variantes: Forrester, Forester, Forster, Forrestor, Foster, y otros.
