Comment: You have done a wonderful service for so many! Thank you for all your hard work. My 3rd g grandmother, Clarissa Fisher Wescott (sometimes spelled Westcoat, Westcott, etc.)of Warwick, Franklin County, Ma. USA was married to Hori Westcoat and when he died in 1851, she at some time remarried to an Eben Foskett. Yours was the only place I have found anything about them. I am still missing their marriage date, however. Thanks again.Helen Wescott KearneyCalifornia, USA.

Comment: I am a fifth generation Foskett from George Foskett from London who emegrated to NSW Australia in 1856 (by memory). We have a fairly complete family tree of our line here in Australia. Has anyone been in contact with you from this line? Do you know of any others in the UK that may be related? How are you conducting the DNA test? Thanks you for your efforts I hope this leads to greater understanding. Stephen Foskett Launceston Tasmania Australia

Comment: For Stephen: I probably have most of the descendants of George Foskett who emigrated to Australia in 1853. Lesley Foskett and I have communicated over very many years. I dont know whether you have a copy of the latest version of his book "The Fosketts of Pennyweight Flats" but in the back he has included a family tree of what I think is the antecedents of the said George. If you don't have access to this book, let me know and I'll send you a copy of George's ancestry. Kind regards Sandra

Comment: I am Foskett.... well Alan Foskett anyway. Cracking site plenty of info for the novice , as a im sure most of us Fosketts are not as we are a very inquisitive bunch , my lot are anyway. My dad Charles louis Foskett has traced us back 2 around 1400 along the male line all from London, Central to be precise from Islington ,Clerkenwell and Just south of the river. I ,myself have 3 children and a beautiful wife but no longer live in London as i can no afford £1,000,000 to live where my family r from but there u go its everywhere i suppose. We live in Essex and it was interesting to read about the names origin as i have read some of my dads stuff but not all, and knowing it may be Roman or French or Saxon was very interesting.As i said its a cracking site and long may we add to it and keep our proud family name of FOSKETT in the public domain. May all your troubles b little ones. Good luck Alan Foskett x

I have 3 working against each other (very high risk medications req.)1. sleep apnea, 2. cataplexy and 3. Worst is Narcolepsy(fall asleep any time)

Comment: Hello Sandra: I just came across your site a week ago. I was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba Canada (1946) as was my father Sidney Garnet Foskett (1917) who was one of three sons born to Charles and Marion (Sheperd) Foskett. I am not sure if my grandfather was born in England or Canada but my grandmother was born in England. So that seems to make it difficult to trace their backgrounds. Any suggestions on where to start.

Comment: I have details of my Grandmothers' geneology which traces back to the Foskett family (Fosquet in French). I am not certain whether we are talking of the same family lines, but I would be interested in learning more. I do believe my particular lineage to be Aristocratic in origin, as this has been well documented in the past.

Comment: Hi Derek, Thank you for your contribution. I suspect that the family you are talking of is that of Joseph Foskett, the silk weaver. I would be most interested in your "well documented" sources, as there is no contemporary evidence that this family was other than an English family attempting to hide its more humble beginnings. The family can be found on the Great Horwood family tree. Kind regards Sandra

My grandparents families have always been in Northern California. I have never met another Foskett in my life...only by surfing like this!

My great grandfather was Edwin Foskett who married Sarah Ann Marsh. My grandfather was Charles Edwin Foskett and my mother is Eileen Foskett. Look forward to hearing from other Fosketts!! Sarah
RESPONSE: Sarah, you might find it useful to subscribe to the Foskett mailing list (instructions on home page - it doesn't cost anything). A number of Stepney Foskett descendants subscribe to the list and are more likely to see your appeal for other relatives if you post the message there.

Comment: Firstly, I'd like to wish a Happy New Year to Sandra and to all members of the Foskett family. Secondly,can anyone shed any light on a small mystery? Whilst searching in Shooters Hill Cemetery, Greenwich, for the Carter branch of my family, I happened by chance upon the grave of Emily Louise Foskett. She died on the 9th November 1953 aged 46 years. There were no other details on the gravestone. Who was she, does anyone know? Kind regards, Kim
Emily Louise Foskett was the wife of Thomas Foskett (1906-1974) of Greenwich. He in turn was the son of William and Hannah (Hogan) Foskett.

His son Alfred married Rose Horton and they had my grandfather Alfred John Foskett. Alfred, Rose, and little Alfred emigrated to the US and settled in Wisconsin. My father, who is another Alfred John Foskett, and my three brothers all live there with their children. I live in Colorado, USA.My father has copies of the marriage and birth certificates for Noah, Alfred, and Alfred.

Comment: We have some Fosketts in our family. My mother's great aunt, Charlotte Bates (born in the late 1880's) married into the Foskett family. She had several children, including Edwin and Dennis who emigrated to Australia from London (via Lincolnshire in WW2) in the late 1940's. They settled in Orange, New South Wales. My son, by chance, will be working on a farm in Orange NSW in his gap year. I wonder if there are any Fosketts there now? Great website, Nick Thompson
Sandra's response: Hi NIck. You will find Charlotte on the Berkhampstead(2) family of Fosketts on the UK families pages. I was aware that Dennis had emigrated but not his brother, so thanks for that. There are a number of Fosketts living in NSW, although I dont know whether they are related.

Comment: Hello Sandra. I have done very little in the way of research but I do keep up on the emails that come my way. One of my students lives in Clapham nr Bedford. He found an old photo in his loft and brought it in for me 18th century. It shows "FRank Foskett& Mr & Mrs Foskett at Clapham" I will get the pic scanned and send it to you if you wish. I know that my gt gt grandad was from Clapham before ending up in Theddingworth Leics. Any clues? Keep up the good work - you are a gem! Bob Foskett
From Sandra: Hi Bob. Your Fosketts originally came from Odell in Bedfordshire and can be found under that heading on the UK Families Page. I would love a copy of the photograph.

Comment: Sandra, this is a great site. Although not a Foskett descendant I am interested as my Gmother's family, the Mothersoles were related. Alfred Foskett married Catherine Allen in 1873. Her sister Elizabeth married Harry Mothersole in 1873. Harry built a house in High St Berkhamsted c1913 which was shared by some of the family. Arthur Foskett was living there when my mother & her sisters visited in 1988 & was still alive several years ago. Any information would be appreciated. Allen
Sandra's Comment: Catherine Allen's husband was actually William Alfred Foskett and Arthur William Foskett was their grandson. He died in 2004. I have a large family tree for this family which you will find on the Berkhampstead (1) tree of Hertfordshire.

Comment: Gazette & Courier - Monday, September 20, 1875 Orange - Prescott Foskett, a respected citizen and well-to-do farmer, committed suicide by hanging himself at Orange, Sat. afternoon the 11th. He visited his son's wife, and deposited his spectacles, money, and a few mementos, stating that he was going to put himself out of the way. Upon being asked what was the trouble, he said he had seen trouble enough. His son was immediately informed of his father's intentions, and a search was commenced for him, but after an hour proved unsuccessful; then an alarm was given, and business about the place was generally suspended. After another hour search, the body of Mr. Foskett was found suspended to a tree, about a half a mile from his son's house. The act occasions intense excitement in the vicinity. Domestic troubles are said to have led to the act. He was about 68 years old.
Sandra's Comment: Thank you for the information about Prescott Foskett. What a sad ending to a long life!

Comment: A wonderful site! My grandmother was Fanny Ethel Foskett(born 1985).lived in Bognor.She descends via Alfred Foskett(born in Hammersmith), Thomas Foskett, the son of Aaron F and Hannah Knight - both from Grendon Underwood.Moved to London.Aaron may have had two wives, the second being Mary. When Aaron died in 1858, Hannah moved back to Bucks briefly. Her son Thomas, seems to have ended up working in a laundry in St Philips Earls Court. Does anyone know if this was a workhouse or orphanage?
Sandra's Comment: Are you related to Alan Foskett who moved to San Jose in California back in the 1960s?

Comment: Hi Sandra. Re Alan Foskett - I don't know yet... One correction to my first message: Aaron's second wife was Hannah Knight. I see you have listed my grandmother Fanny Foskett, born in Fulham, and her father Alfred, born in Hammersmith!That family moved to South Bersted(Bognor) in the early 1900s, I think. I will keep 'digging' my family tree. Thanks for all the info on your website.

Comment: Dear Sandra The death certificate you suggested for James Snow husband of Emma Foskett wasn't the right one. However I have now found the right one. He died in 1896 and on the census forms he says he is married while his wife Emma is living at a different address and says she is a widow!The family story was that he died in a hunting accident leaving her with young children. She was left with young children but he didn't die till he was 75 and was found dead with a heart attack. Does anyone know anymore about these 2.
Sandra's Response: No wonder my suggestion wasn't correct!

Comment: Hello, I have recently come across and admire all the work you have put into it. I have reviewed all of your recent posts and only found one other from Canada that may be connected. Our family history is a bit of mystery to me (only 32) and I am very curious. The other post from Canada was from a Robert Foskett who's father was Sidney, I believe the brother of my grandfather. My family is not that close however I am extremely curious of the history. Do you know of how "Foskett's" made thier way to Canada? Thank you Eric
Sandra's Response: I'll contact you via your email address with a more detailed response. However, generally, there were several FOSKETT families who emmigrated to Canada from the UK. I will need more information from you before I can state conclusively which one you belong to. For example, your parents' names and if possible their ages; your mother's maiden name and any known details (however small) about your grandparents.

Comment: This is great. My maternal grandmother's maiden name was Erna Ruth Foskett. Her father was Dr. Wilson Abner Foskett, from New York. Grandma was from White Bird, Idaho. This is the first website that I have found that concerns the name Foskett, and I think it is great!
Sandra's Response: So glad you have found the website useful. Do you have a picture of the Foskett memorial which was erected in Idaho? (From memory, I think it commemorates the spot where Dr Foskett was killed) If you dont, contact me directly and I'll send you a copy.

Comment: My Great Grandmother was Emily Elizabeth Foskett born I believe in Fulham, London in 1860. She latter married a William Henry White and lived in Chiswick, London have you or anyone else any further information on her.i look forward to your response
Sandra's response: I have found their marriage in 1891 in Registration District of Brentford, but I can't find her in the birth index. The nearest I have is an Elizabeth Emily Foskett born in 1859 in Berkhampstead. If you purchased her marriage certificate it would give her father's name and so be able to make identification easier.

Comment: Hi Sandra
What a comprehensive site! I'm starting my mother's family tree - She was born Lily Ethel Hardingham in 1940 and was a granddaughter of Ethel Foskett (b.1887) and Ronald Hardingham (the Buckinghamshire Great Horwood tree). Mum married Phillip Price in 1961, and in 1971 we emigrated as a family to Australia. With the help of your site, I've been able to trace Ethel's parents and grand parents. And I'll probably be able to go even further.

My Grandfather's sister, Charlotte Mary A. Watson, married
Thomas Lawrence Foskett in 1899 in the West Ham Reg. District which is
where the Watson family were living.
Charlotte and Thomas had five
children. Unfortunately my grandfather and mother had died before I was
born and my mother, their youngest child, died 13 years ago so I have
no way of finding out about Charlotte Mary.
I know Thomas Lawrence Foskett died in 1948 and is buried in Islington cemetery. His wife Charlotte died in 1930 and unfortunately I cannot find her burial place.
I wonder if you have any more information on this branch of the Foskett family?
Look forward to hearing from you.

Comment: Hi Sandra
My family moved to Australia in 1969 when i was 7. So much information about the family was lost or was embellished it was very difficult to connect the dots. Thanks to yor hard work i have been able to trace the family back to 1390. I am from Luton but my ancestors were from a small area of Buckinghamshire. We are visiting soon and look forward to exploring some of the small villages from where they came. Thanks again.

Comment: Hi Sandra, I came across your website this Christmas Eve when looking with my elderly mum (Winifred Dorothy Foskett nee Feneley) to see whether we could find out about relatives we've lost touch with. I was amazed to find that my family line runs back to the 1400's to Great Horwood. I didn't really know where my grandfather came from as he came to UK from New Zealand at the end of WW1. I am married to Linda R Foskett (nee Dutton) who you have on your list (although I don't appear by name). We have a son Michael Steven born 02/06/94 in Redhill, Surrey. We live in North Holmwood, just outside Dorking, but I originate from Baldock, Hertfordshire where my mum and sister Anne Gillian Foskett still live. Thank you for an amazing journey back in time. I hope to spend more time and maybe visit Great Horwood when I get a chance.
