About George Forster, KB

Elizabeth de la Mare, whose male relatives predeceased her, inherited Aldermaston. Elizabeth's husband, George Forster, was the son of Sir Humphrey Forster I from Harpsden near Henley.[4] When Elizabeth and George married, George became the owner of Aldermaston Manor along with other manors previously owned by the De la Mare family.[4] He was knighted by Henry VII in 1501, becoming Sheriff of Berkshire and Oxford in 1517. He was made a Knight of the Bath in 1525. His assumed wealth meant that he was part of Henry VIII's entourage at the Field of the Cloth of Gold.[4] George was succeeded by his son, Humphrey II, in 1533.[4]
