Cheswardine was home to our ancestors the Forresters. It has changed little since James Forrester and his family left sometime in 1851. Harriet Forrester (Hugh Grant Stevenson’s mother) was born there and her father James was a regular visitor to the local “beak”. The gravestone of James’s father Thomas Forrester can still be found in the grounds of St. Swithuns. Read Kenny Marshall’s notes on James Forrester for more.
