Between 1987 and 1990 I was in London a lot with my work so was able to frequently
visit St Catherine's House where the Birth, Death and Marriage index's were held.
Over this period I went through every volume of all index's and copied every record
relating to the FORRYAN name. From this information and other information collected
I was able to link many of the names and build a comprehensive database. This now
contains some 1800 names either FORRYAN's or linked families.
The FORRYAN name is also registered as a “One-name Study”.
I have also collected a large number of photographs of individuals and wedding groups.
This collection I would like to add to and would ask for your help in providing pictures.

I started to research the FORRYAN name back in 1982 and have continued off and on
ever since. My first area of research was into the local family and I managed to
talk with a lot of FORRYAN's in Leicester, Burbage and Nuneaton. From these discussions
I started to piece together the family into one gigantic jigsaw puzzle.
