      Hi Phil,
      You are correct Alice F was the mother of James F. John Lush was the father according to the marriage cert for James & Sarah. I haven't seen any evidence for a marriage between Alice & John L. In a later census Alice is living with James & described as his aunt.
      Alice had another child Sarah Baptised 15/2/1811 buried 30/4/1832.
      Alice bn 2/12/1779 the eldest child of William F bn ? Buried 29/6/1807. He married Susanna Lush 7/7/1778 I think at West Orchard, not sure when she was born. Buried 8/1/1793. They had six other children.
      Mary bapt. 2/1/1782
      Maria bapt. 25/11/1783
      James bapt. 10/4/1785
      Susanna bapt. 13/4/1789
      Elizabeth bapt. 19/6/1791 buried 17/2/1793
      Lucy bapt. 21/9/1792 buried 24/9/1792

      William was the eldest son of John F who married married Mary West at Compton Abbas on 11/4/1737. He died in 1780 & is buried at Tarrant Gunville. I do not know where he was born. I have seen two different fathers for him on the web but I have not pursued them. There were husband & wife burials at Compton Abbas in 1726 for a William & Margaret F which may have been John's parents.

      I will send you details of William Fs siblings later.

      My father's cousin Alfred, son of Thomas F
      my grandfathers brother, did some family research, I believe in the 1950s, which involved correspondence with Lambeth Palace regarding Thomas F vicar of Lydlinch. I do not believe he took a flyer on a possible connection as his daughter wrote to my aunts & mentioned a bible. When I wrote to her many years later she said it was a bible box!!!
      She is no longer with us. I have researched the vicar of Lydlinch & some of his descendants but have been unable to find a link.
      I haven't done any research for years but hope to start again.
      Do you have any ideas on your family connection with the Forward family?
      Happy hunting
      Roy
