Re: Forshaw? What does it mean?
Thank you for your response.

I have been told that the surname may be conected to Ralph de Fougeres from Buckinghamshire. Which in French I think means Ralph of Fern.
I did a little digging and there is a place in Brittany called Fougeres that has an intresting history - castles and stuff.
If the Forshaw name originates from this place name I would imagine that would make us Celtic in decent.
What language is Fouroasaugh? Gallic perhaps?
Are you aware of any significance with regard to 4 oaks?
Can you tell me where this place is and what it is called today.
From what you are saying, I'm going to have to create an original coat of arms.
PS I'll keep you posted as to what your coat of arms will ultimately be :)
Thank you for your assistance.
