This is a wonderfully detailed history of this Scottish family, concentrating primarily upon the major and minor branches in Scotland, beginning with the Lords Forbes, from the 1st through the 22nd holder of that title. Included as well are the cadet branches, with extensive genealogies and family accounts. The cadet branches of Corsindae & Monymusk, Corse & Craigievar, Granard, Pitsliog, Boyndlie, Newe, Tolquhon, Waterton, Brux, Skellater, Inverernan, Echt, and de Forbin & the Swedish Forbeses are treated in turn.
Of particular value are the 30 family trees and the extremely detailed maps of the Forbes country.
