PersonID 1481


1    Mary (14)  and George (12) are listed as living at Peat Shield, West Allendale, Northumberland at the time of the 1841 census, with Ann Swindle ('65')

    In the 1851 census George (20), Thomas (16), Ann (9), Hugh (7) are all described ad grand-children of Nancy Swindle. This implies that they must be children of either her son John or her son Thomas. Ann and Hugh are young enough to be the children of Thomas Swindle and Margaret Dawson but George and Thomas must be the sons of John.

2    Possibly the George Swindle who emigrated to Australia aboard the Red Jacket in 1857
