About The Forwood Family Tree World Wide
I, Martin Dismore, son of Winifred Irene Forwood (1914-2015) have recently taken "ownership" of this family tree from Cheryl Forwood at her request. Most of the notes below relate to her long time on the project and I am deeply indebted to her for so much of the work over the years.

With all such large projects, errors have crept in, and I am trying, through access to the records held in FindMyPast find original BMD and other documents both here in the UK and USA, add as PDF records to each person in the tree. I expect it to take about 10 years. If you have any comments please email me at: dispyr@virginmedia.com

Thanks for taking the time to browse The Forwood Family in the whole world. Yes I have now expanded it and hope this will help others researching this surname.

From Cheryl Forwood:
We have now gone back to 1540 with Unknown Forwood marrying and having 3 children, William 1564 - Thomas 1565 - Agnetham (Agnes)1560 and on  to 1564, with a William Forwood being born in England, who married Weniffred Venn, in 1859 at Broadhembury, Devon, England, then in Faversham, Kent, Thomas Forwood b.

We also have a branch of Forwoods from Devon and Somerset. From the 1891 Census of Great Britain, here is a list of Counties we have found family members in. Cheshire, Dorset, Devon, Essex, Glamorgen(Wales),Hertfordshire, Isle of Wright, Kent, Lancashire, London, Middlesex, Northumberland, Staffordshire, Suffolk, Sussex, Warickshire and Yorkshire. We have just made contact with our lost relations in Africa and he has added to this tree with all the information he possessed.

All of this information has been donated from various members of the family, including myself, but I would like to make a special thanks to my Aunt Babs [Bertha Clissold - Forwood] who has recently passed away, for without her by my side, I could not have undertaken  the
 continuation of this tree. Now thanks go to those family members who have done all of the  searching
 in the first place. My job, as I see it, is to put it on the internet and open it up to other genealogists and other family members, throughout the world, so that we can get this information sorted. If you find and inconsistencies Please let me know about them, and we will look into it.

This is a list of some of the people involved below;
 Bertha Forwood, d. (Australia) Nick Forwood (Scotland) Sarah Holt, (USA) Christopher Smithson,(USA)Mr Robert Vincent Forwood, d. Mr Arthur Long,UK, Douglas Arthur Forwood, (South  Africa)
  Kim Rogers, John F Rowe, (from WA, Australia) Keith Goodman, Mark Turnbull (Australia) and  many
 more names will be added as required. Some of this information has been taken from sites on  the internet.

So this information must be verified. Entries that have original sources, that  I know of, have been added to each individual or family group. If you have  records of sources to any entry, please send me an email! Remember to check  the sources if there isn't any listed on the person you are looking for.

If you are a family member, with this spelling of the surname "FORWOOD" you are family, so  please if
 you would like to add to your heritage, contact me. Martin Dismore (dispyr@virginmedia.com). 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.
