The earliest authentic progenitor of the Lords Forrester was Adam Forrester, a wealthy and influential burgess of Edinburgh.

On 7 December 1376 confirmation of a grant to him by William More of Abercorn of the lands of Corstorphine.

On acquiring the lands of Corstorphine in 1376 he founded a chapel, dedicated to St. John the Baptist, in connection with the parish church there.

As Sir Adam Forster, Knight, of Corstorphine, he was one of the Commissioner appointed to arrange a truce at Hawdenstank 8 Oct 1404.

Sir Adam died 13 Oct 1405. He was probably buried in Edinburgh, as his tomb does not appear with those of his successors in Corstorphine Church.

My grandmother on my fathers side was Ann Forrester born approx 1910 in Edinburgh Scotland, died approx 2000, her family as far as I know were wiped out during the flu epidemic of around 1916? and she was the only one to live. She married a New Zealander called George Francis Bullen, they left London on 17/08/1939 for New Zealand on a ship called the Rimutaka, she was 29 yrs and George was 31 yrs. they had three children at the time (1) George Francis (Frank) 5 yrs, (2) Christopher John - (John) 3 yrs, (3) Rosemary 1 yr.

John is my father, I am the youngest of his four sons. Thanks Neil Bullen
