Elizabeth Swindle

The daughter of Joseph Swindale and Mary Watson, baptised 7th May 1844 in Carrshield, Northumberland (from Dyke Nook)

Possibly the Elizabeth Swindle buried 2nd November 1846 at Carrshield, Northumberland as an infant from Dyke Nook.

Elizabeth is not mentioned in the 1851 census information for Joseph and Mary's family.

Mary was married from Dyke Nook and it seems that she may have returned to her parents for the birth of her children (as recorded for Elizabeth baptised 1844). It seems likely that the Elizabeth Swindle buried on 2nd May 1843 was her daughter and also the Elizabeth buried on 2nd November 1846. Since both children are described as 'infants' in the parish registers it is possible that the Elizabeth baptised on 7th May 1844 also died very young and is not the Elizabeth buried on 2nd November 1846. Possibly the Alston parish registers have more information.
