Renald Foster's Probable Ancestry

"While is is highly probable that Renald Foster, after his wedding at Theydon Garnon, took his bride to Harlow and lived there until he emigrated with his wife and children, and that he was the son of the Renald Foster and grandson of the John Foster whose wills are quoted above [pp. 569-570], it is not proven, and the parish register of Harlow for the seventeenth century, which would have provided the positive or negative answer to the problem, is missing."[1]

Renald Foster's Baptismal Name

"When he signed his will our Ipswich ancestor wrote himself Renold. In the eight volumes of Records and Files of the County Courts of Essex County Foster is mentioned forty-eight times. In nineteen instances his name is Renold, in four Reienalld, in three Reienald, in two each Reinold, Reynold and Reinald, and in one each Reienold, Reonall, Reanalld, Rainold and Renall. In two instances each he is Regnald and Reg. and in one Regnell, but, needless to say, gn is commonly sounded as n. This leaves three cases of Reginall, two of Reginald and one of Reignold, and very possibly a re-examination of the manuscript record would eliminate the i in each of these readings. [For further comment on the name Reginald see The American Genealogist, XVIII:13; the new Complete Peerage, III; Appendix C.]"[1]
