This website is dedicated to tracing and documenting the lives and details of the FORREST lines descended from William FORREST of Overgrange.
I started researching my FORREST line in 2007 and have met a few, but not many, fellow family historians who share the same FORREST ancestor. I have uncovered some interesting characters and have been aided greatly by the research and evidence provided to me by Robert Forrest of Seattle, USA.
William FORREST of Grange, or Overgrange, in West Calder, Midlothian, Scotland born circa 1690 is the earliest we can trace the FORREST line back as there is little solid evidence to go further back.
As a result, I have decided to create this website to document all the FORREST ancestors of William, and enable long lost cousins to expand and update their lines.
