Hi
Could it be 'Swavesey' sometimes written as 'Swavensey'?

"SWAVESEY is a large parish and village, with a station on the Cambridge and Huntingdon branch of the Great Eastern railway, 69 miles from London, 11½ north-west from Cambridge, 3 south-east from St. Ives and 9 south-east from Huntingdon, in the Western division of the county, hundred of Papworth, petty sessional division of Cambridge, union of St. Ives, county court district of Huntingdon, rural deanery of North Stowe and archdeaconry and diocese of Ely."


Only likely one I can think of.
