Look up request - Broderick Calendar - Swithenbank
« on: Sunday 30 October 16 14:12 GMT (UK) »
If anyone has access to the Broderick Calendar CD Rom I would be really grateful to know whether the surname "Swithenbank" (or may be spelled Swythynbank, Swithenbanck(e)) appears in the index. I am researching a possible link between Francis Swithenbancke (d.1690 in Leeds) and a John Swithenbank of Aysgarth whose will was proved in 1618 and which mentions a Richard and Francis Swithenbank.

We have long believed that our Francis may have come from the Yorkshire Dales originally but the limited coverage of parish and other records from that era has made it very difficult to establish a link. If anyone with knowledge of resouces for that area has come across the name in other c17th sources then any suggestions would be gratefully received.
