HTTP Error 404 - Not Found

There are a number of reasons you may have arrived at this page - basically the page you are looking for may have had its name changed, moved to a different location or been deleted.

My apologies if you have been unable to open the page you wanted. This may result from both internal and external links. The most likely cause is a major web site reorganisation that I am carrying out at the moment. I hope to complete this work by 6th April 2018. New reorganisation March 2021!

Google normally takes some time  to re-index the pages. I suggest starting at and following the index pages from there.

Census Records

United Kingdom, Canada and Irish Census images are copyright and may not be republished. A link on my site is a therefore a link to a private record which regrettably I cannot republish. In the case of UK records the link reference gives the book/folio/reference so it should be easy to view the record on any on-line provider of census information.

(US census images are not copyright).

Swindell, Swindells, Swindle, Swindale etc

These pages have moved to a new site  . From the home page you will be able to go to an introduction to the Swindell One Name Study or a name index. There are also pages of background information about places connected with Swindell families.

Other Family Branches

Other branches of my family other than Swindell etc should remain available at Please contact me at if you encounter a broken link.
