John Swindells

Listed in the 1871 census as an inmate at Sandhurst, Berkshire aged 58, born at Aldeton Moor, Cumberland.1

It is reasonable to assume that Aldeton Moor is Alston (also known as Aldstone, Aldeneby and Aldenstone) and that Swindells is a southern spelling for Swindle.

I cannot match this John with any known John Swindle born in Alston
