Robert Swindall

Buried at Warden on the 17th of April 1780

Robert, son of John Swindale and Ann Piet was baptised 2 April 1721 at Hexham with Stonecroft Roman Catholic Church. Another Robert, son of Richard and Eleanor Swindale, was baptised on the 3rd of April 1729 in Warden, Northumberland. A third Robert son of George Swindle and Mary Young was baptised December 1738 in Ryton, County Durham. These three are possibly all cousins.

Probably one of these three was the Robert Swindale who married Margaret Armstrong and was buried in 1809 (most likely the son of Richard). This Robert, buried in 1780, is more likely to be the son of John - but the evidence is weak.
