129. Reginald FORSTER [47014] (Thomas88, Cuthbert58, Thomas, 11th Gov. of Bamborough44, Thomas, Kt. 10th Governor of Bamborough (Sir)34, Thomas, Kt. (Sir)23, Thomas19, Thomas13, Thomas, Kt. (Sir)9, John, Kt., 6th Governor of Bamborough Castle (Sir)7, Gilbert4, Gilbert de Bucton3, Roger2, Adam1) was born Abt. 1594 in Brunton Hall Northumberland England and died on 30 May 1681 in Ipswich Massachusetts USA aged about 87.

General Notes: Reginald Foster came to America in one of the vessels embargoed by King Charles I, accompanied by his wife, Judith, five sons and two daughters, and settled in Ipswich, Mass., about the year 1638, and was one of the earliest inhabitants of that town. His English ancestry, beginning with his father, was as follows: Thomas, Cuthbert, Sir Thomas, Sir Thomas, Sir Thomas, Sir Thomas, Sir Thomas, Sir William, Sir Richard, Sir Reginald, Sir Hugo, and Sir Richard. A sister of Sir Richard, named Matilda or Maude, was the wife of William I, the Conqueror, King of England. From Sir Richard Forester sprung the Blake Foresters of Ashfield and Knockmoy Abbey, County of Galway, and Inchorey Castle, County of Clare; also, the Foresters of Etherston and Bamborough Castle on Northumberland, who are so vividly described in the historical novel, "Dorothy Forster", by Sir Walter Besant, the celebrated English novelist.

Information extracted from "The History of Canterbury, NH 1727-1912." The book came in two volumes and was compiled by James O. Lyford, whose relatives came from there. The book was published in 1912 by The Rumford Press. It is available for viewing at the New York Public Library; and, in part says:
Reginold Foster came to America in one of the vessels embargoes by King Charles I, accompanied by his wife, Judith, five sons and 2 daughters, settled in Ipswich, Mass around 1638 as one of the earliest inhabitants of the town. His will was proved Jun 9, 1681. Children were all born in England between 1618 and 1636. Each child had families from nine to 14 children, many of whom settled in Ipswich, Boxford, Andover and other nearby towns in Mass. Many have attained national distinction (US Senator Lafayette Sabine Foster of Conn and Senator Addison G. Foster of Washington.)

Although it is thought that Reginald settled in Ipswich around 1638, his name doesn't appear in town records until 1652, when he and Thomas Clark constructed a canal adjoining the Chebacco River. At his death, Reginald's estate was valued at 744 Pounds, 16 Shilling. Reginald owned Plum and Hog Islands, which remained in the family for several generations.
