Migration of the Fourewarte family to the New World and Oceana

Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Fourewarte were among those contributors: Ambrose and Mary Forward who settled in Virginia in 1735 and later moved to Maryland.
