Notes

1    In the Ryton registers in the first half of the 18th century there is confusion between Swiney and Swindle. In 1799 Edward Swinney married Eleanor Swinney on the 6th of May 1799 at Heworth, County Durham. To the south of both parishes is Chester le Street where 4 children of Edward Swindle and Eleanor Swindle were baptised between 1800 and 1807

2    The four children listed above are recorded as being the children of Edward Swindle, wright, n. of Birtley ... and Eleanor Swindle n of Heworth. Neighbouring records quote the mother's maiden name or leave it blank. Thus Eleanor's maiden name can be assumed to be Swindle.

3    An Edward Swinney died in 1850 aged 79 in Bishopwearmouth but that 0ne was a keelman on the Wear all his life

4    There was also an Edward Swinhoe, son of Robert Swinhoe (pitman) of Chaterhaugh baptised on the 1st of August 1862 in Chester le Street and an Edward Swinney buried 19th November 1819 from Chartershaugh aged 59.
