Parents: Sir Richard Forster b. abt. 1050 of Flanders and Scotland & Unknown

Married: Unknown


  1. Sir Reginald Forster Governor of Etherstone Castle d. 1156

Governor of Etherstone Castle

Was General of the English army which marched against Magnus, King of Norway, when he invaded England A.D. 1103. In the battle that ensued King Magnus was slain and his troops routed. Sir Hugo died in 1121, leaving issue.

He was succeeded by his son Reginald.

He fought in Scotland and England against Magnus, King of Norway in 1101. Hugo also fought with Henry I of England against the usurping Duke Robert de Mowbray in 1106. He succeeded Richard as Governor of Etherstone. His wife is unknown, but they had two sons named Hugo and Reginald.


"Sir Hugo Forester (d. 1121). Some sources identify this man and Sir Richard as the same person. He fought against Magnus, King of Norway in 1101 and helped King Richard I fight against Robert in 1106. He had two sons, Hugo and Reginald."

NOTE: There is no history written in any reputable books that indicates King Magnus, whose date of death is 24 August 1103, ever engaged Hugo Forster in 1103, and certainly there is nothing about his death except that he died in Ulster, Ireland and not England or Scotland
