PREFACE.



At the beginning of the researches made by Miss Anne Spottswood Dandridge
on the genealogy of the Forman family in Maryland, it was hoped that a common
ancestor for all persons of the name could be found. This hope is as yet unfulfilled,
but it has nevertheless been thought best to include in the book not only the
descendants of Robert Forman, who died in 1719-20, but also another family whose
ancestor came to Maryland from Monmouth Co., New Jersey, later in the same cen-
tury — the eighteenth. Much information had been collected regarding the New
Jersey family before it appeared that the connection, if any, was remoter than at
first supposed, and a good deal has been since added relating to other branches of
the New Jersey family whose earliest ancestor in America, also named Robert For-
man, died in Long Island in 1671. There will also be found in these pages notices
of other families of the name whose connection with the two mentioned is as yet
untraced.

It is proper to state that, while the book has been principally compiled by
Miss Dandridge, much additional matter has been added by various contributors, to
all of whom I desire to renew the expression of my thanks. The following have been
especially helpful in rendering assistance:

Mrs. Josephine Forman Rodgers of Washington, D. C, Hon. E. E. Farman of
Warsaw, N. Y., Mr. J. Clayton Eorman of Cleveland, Ohio, Dr. W. B. Forman of
Florida, Mr. Charles Forman of New Orleans, La., and Hon. E. P. Dismukes of
Columbus, Ga., and others whose names will be mentioned in the body of the work.

Additional information and corrections will be welcomed.

THE FORMAN GENEALOGY.



Genealogy of the Forman Family of Maryland— Descended from

Robert Forman who died in 1720.



1. From the Index of Early Settlers in the Land office at Annapolis, Mary-
land, Liber 18, folio 94, it appears that Robert Foeman arrived in Maryland in the
year 1674. Whether he came directly from England or was an offshoot of a family
already settled in the colonies — perhaps of the family which had settled in Long
Island a generation before, is unknown. That such a removal would not be singular
is shown by the case of Augustine Herman who came from New Amsterdam, made
the famous map and founded Bohemia Manor in Maryland.

Robert Forman became the owner of "Lewstern," a tract of land of 200 acres
on the north side of the Chester River, surveyed for him on October 12, 1704 (Rent
Roll of Kent Co. page 65, MS in Md. Hist. Socy.), and granted to him, according to
the deed to Calder hereafter to be mentioned, by letters patent of the Lord Pro-
prietory, on October 10, 1707. His will (at Annapolis) shows that he also owned
the upper part of " Blackhall's Hermitage," 100 acres, also on Chester River. In
1707 it appears (Rent Roll of Kent Co. page 59) that 100 acres of "Blackhall's
Hermitage" was "possest" by Edward Forman^ whose relationship to Robert is
unknown. Prom Edward it seems to have passed to Robert. Nothing more is known
of Robert's life except what may be learned from the following :

" Whereas There hath been Eight hundred twenty-five thousand Nyne hun-
dred Seventy Nyne pounds of Tobacco Expended Layd out &, disbursed by several
of the Inhabitants of this Province in the late Expedicon against the Nanticoke
Indians and other the necessary Charges of this province which hath been examined
stated and allowed by the upper and lower houses of this present General Assembly
To the intent therefore That the same may be satisfied and paid to these persons to
whom the same is due Bee itt Enacted by the Right Hon^'e the Lord Proprietary
by and with the advice of this present General Assembly and the Authority of the
same That the said Eight hundred twenty five thousand Nyne Hundred Seventy
Nyne pounds of Tobacco be paid in the manner <fe form as is hereafter Expressed by
an Equal Assessment uppon the persons & Estates of the Inhabitants of this Province
And be payd to the severall persons to whome the same is due as aforesaid Any Law
Statute Custome or vseage to the Contrary thereof Notwithstanding."



10 THE FORM AN GENEALOGY.

Then follow the amounts to be paid to the persons named, among whom Robert

Foreman of Kent County is to be paid 300 lbs.

(Procedure of the Assembly of Maryland, October, November, 1678.)

In Robert Forman's will, which is extant, and which we subjoin, the name is

spelled Foreman. To those who are at all acquainted with old records it is well

known that small differences in the spelling of proper names signify nothing, being

generally due to the carelessness or ignorance of the clerk.



WILL OF ROBERT FORMAN OF KENT CO., MD.^

In the name of Grod Amen. I Robert Foreman being sick and weak in body
but of sound and perfect memory praised be to God for his mercy, Do make this my
last will and Testament, in manner and form as followeth.

Note : — Although as a rule it has been attempted in this work to finish with
each branch before taking up the next younger, we now give the will of the second
son, a little out of the proper order, since the line is not carried further.



WILL OF ROBT. FOREMAN, (JUNIOR) .^

" I Robert Foreman of Kent County in the province of Maryland

I give and bequeath unto Elizabeth, my dearly beloved wife, all my stock of horses,
cattle and hogs, together with all my household goods and movables.

I give to my well beloved son, Walter Foreman, all and singular the lands,
messuages and tenements to him and his heirs forever. . . .

Exrs. wife Elizabeth and son Walter.



prob. July 27, 1762. Robt. Foreman's K i seal i"

The order in which Robert Forman's children were born is not altogether cer-
tain, and is obtained j)artly from the will and partly from a deed from Robert's
oldest son Arthur, another son John and his wife, and Elizabeth their sister and
her husband Richard Chaddock, by which they all convey to James Calder, attorney
at law of r hestertown, Md., the portion of the Lewstern estate which had been de-
vised by the will to William and John. The deed recites that William died after
his father without issue, and the will is attested by only two witnesses ; the lands
presumably did not pass thereby, and estate in fee descended to Arthur as heir at
law of Robert. Arthur therefore became a party to the deed for the benefit of the
others. The price paid was twenty pounds Maryland currency to John and his wife
and Elizabeth and her husband, Arthur receiving the nominal sum of five shillings.
This deed is dated February 8, 1733, and is recorded in Liber J. S. No. 16, folio 432
etc. (A Land Record for Kent Co., Md.).

Arthur was clearly the eldest son. That the daughters Mildred and Mary,
who were married at the time of the will, were older than their brother Robert is

IS THE FORM AN GENEALOGY.

uncertain, but since Robert tbe younger seems to have been not yet provided with
an establishment of his own as his eldest brother had been, it is presumed his mar-
ried sisters were older than he— they may, indeed, have been older than Arthur.
As the three youngest children are named as Charles, William and John, and
Charles is stated to be the youngest, the proper order would seem to be— John, Wil-
liam, and Charles. The proper place of Elizabeth, the youngest daughter, is as
difficult to determine as the places of her sisters. She may be assigned however to
the place between Robert and John.

The family of Robert, thus conjecturally arranged, is as follows :
