All of this information has been donated from various members of the family,

If you are a family member, with this spelling of the surname "FORWOOD" you are family, so
you would like to add to your heritage, contact me. Martin Dismore (firstname.lastname@example.org).
However, I have taken the decision to limit the number of entries of those not directly related
to a FORWOOD member of the family in order to make it more relevant to its origins and title.
We all started in England, then Ireland, USA, Australia, Philippines, Canada,
France, Africa, Brazil, Belgium, and still waiting to add a lot more. Along the
way it seems some of the spellings have changed, and we believe mainly due to
the fact that many in the early years, could not read or write, and these
entries were added by third parties.
