Margaret 'Swindle'

Thought to be daughter of George Swindle and Elizabeth Miller born about 1816 in Walker, Newcastle-upon-Tyne

Married John Yates about 1837 in Walker, Newcastle-upon-Tyne according to IGI


1    An inaccurate identification in the Ancestral File - see #2 below. Actually Margaret Reed, sister of Ann Hopper Reed, first wife of George Swindle. (Information from Suzanne Johnston May 2009)

2    Recorded in Ancestral File for George Swindle but no further references. A Margaret Swindle was born to John Swindle and Dorothy Robson and baptised in Hexham in the same year but the different birth locations and parents means they must be different people.

The marriage is not listed in George Bell's index of Northumberland marriages to 1837 nor in the Register of Marriages from 1837.
