in the U.S. starts with Joseph Foster son of Sir Thomas Forster. Joseph came
here about 1650 and settled in Virginia. His son Joseph lived at a place
called Foster's Castle in New Kent Virginia. Joseph I came from Southampton,
England. It was there that he married Mary Bassett of Eltham. Mary was the
daughter of James Bassett and Mary Roper. Mary Roper was the daughter of
William Roper and Margaret More, who was the daughter of Sir Thomas More and

Eighth and were friends until July 7th 1535 when the king ordered his head
chopped off for not obeying orders.
