S and F seem to have been interchangable at the time.
I have some documents referring to an address MOSS FARM and others where it is written MOFF FARM

The list of Swales baptisms you mention also appear in my family tree, as I am a descendant of  the  JOHN SWALES  Born 1771 in Dent to John and Mary. Does anyone know Mary's maiden name?
John married a Mary (possibly EADLE) 1789 in Dent . He  named his daughter  Flora (born c 1795) Christened 1799 in Dent. (Where John's occupation is listed as a Potter.)
Flora died aged 83 in 1878 in Preston Lancashire. She was my 3x great Grandmother.
I searched for years for certain certificates and eventually found them under the name of Waters and Walters. The documents do state Swales in fancy handwriting but have been transcribed wrongly in the indexes.
