The New World beckoned settlers from the Scottish-English borders. They sailed aboard the armada of sailing ships known as the "White Sails" which plied the stormy Atlantic. Some called them, less romantically, the "coffin ships." Among the early settlers bearing the Fourman surname who came to North America were: Samuel Foreman purchased land in Virginia in 1623. John Foreman landed in New Jersey in 1685. By the mid-1800's the Forman family had settled in Massachusetts, New York, and San Francisco..
