Swindles of Ireland

The well-known difficulty in accessing primary written sources for Irish genealogical research (Parish registers, pre-1901 census records) means that much of the information on the individuals listed on this page has been obtained from knowledge retained within individual families and then passed on in family trees, memoirs etc. I fully acknowledge that most of the information has been plaguarised from sources on the Internet (though as advised by Tom Lehrer I call it 'research') and it carries an even stronger health warning than usual and anyone researching their ancestry must recheck the sources where possible and make their own judgements.

The Swindles are almost certainly of English origin and will have settled in one or more of the 'plantations' that were imposed upon Ireland. The distribution suggests one settler in County Kerry in the late seventeenth century or earlier and possibly several in Ulster. The earliest reference I have found is to a William Swindle in Derry in 1669. The will of a Dorothea Swindell, Spinster, of Dublin is recorded in 1703.

 A Wikipedia article gives a good summary of the plantations ( "Plantations of Ireland").

Many Swindles emigrated to the USA in the 19th century and much of the information has come from their American descendants.

The spelling Swindle and Swindell must be considered synonymous but it is interesting that the spelling Swindle is much more common throughout Ireland (as in the far north of England) rather than the Swindell(s) which became more common in Cheshire and Derbyshire. I suspect that this is a consequence of Irish pronunciation patterns rather than anything else, though I have no personal experience.

I  (the author of this site) must emphasis that I  have no family connnection to anyone listed on this page  and I have collected the information from general interest only. However I will certainly correct any errors made known to me and would be interested in further information.
