info from

I am trying to trace my family of Forrest's. My Grandmother was: Mary Isabel Forrest.  Her father was Timothy Forrest. Don't know who her mother was. I know that Mary I Forrest was married to Ernest Hiscock (from Isle of Wight). Ernest Hiscock died in the First World War and Mary married again a George Charles Rowles in India. My father Leslie was only about 2 yrs old when his father Ernest Hiscock died. If anyone has Forrest in their tree I would love to hear from them. Regards Cilla O'Hanlon
