Was this Robert Forth the son of William Forth (d.1504) of Hadleigh, Suffolk?
William Forth, according to Josephine Frost in "Ancestors of Henry Rogers Winthrop and his wife Alice Woodward Babcock", held Coddenham Hall Manor in Boxford, England. She also says that Robert held manors in Suffolk and Essex and died on July 27, 1540.
At any rate, if Mary Forth, wife of Giles Brewse, was the daughter of Robert who was the son of William Forth (d.1504) then she would be a 1st cousin 3 times removed of Mary Forth, first wife of Gov. John Winthrop of Massachusetts.
