While the book 'Dorothy Forster' by Walter Besant is a work of fiction, it is based on real people and events.  It provides a glimpse into how Tom Forster became involved in the Jacobite rebellion and his rescue from prison by his sister, Dorothy.  The book was written in 1884 and is a surprisingly good read and it does give you the flavour of the time.  Our mother, Dorothy was told that she was named after this distant relative because the book was a favourite of her father, George Selby Knight-Gregson.
