swire/s family around Colne
« on: Sunday 21 January 07 20:19 GMT (UK) »
Hi,
 
Can anybody help with information on the Swire family that lived in/around Colne.  They originally came from Lothersdale, Yorkshire - Hezekiah Swire was born there in 1811.  I have the 1841-1901 census returns for him and his immediate descendants, but would like to know where/how to access parish records for them.  They were all involved with the Inghamite Chapel at Winewall - some of them are buried there.

Hezekiah's gt-grandson (Harry Swire, born around 1906) eventually settled in Royton, near Oldham.  The last known Colne address was New House farm, near Colne.  Any other family links, info or tips for searches  would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, Jo.

Hi LancsLass,

    Thanks very much for the info - I have just had a quick look at the site you mentioned - it's great.  Hezekiah & Elizabeth and Thomas & Martha are definitely the Swires I'm looking for. I'm not sure why they are showing up at Christ Church though when they were part of the Inghamite chapel.  Maybe that was a later development.

   I'm not sure where Thomas & Ellen fit in though.  I have found a Thomas Swire on the 1841 census in that area that was born at Lothersdale - the same place as Hezekiah.  There must be a family link there - I'll just have to do a lot of digging to prove it.

    It's astounding just how many Thomas and Hezekiah Swires there were in this Lancs/Yorks region, which only adds to the confusion!

Thanks again for your kind help,

Jo.

Hi LancsLass,

Thanks for the Colne archive info.  Colne is about 40 minutes away from me, so I'll probably take a trip up there to see if I get any further.  Went to Winewall last Saturday to visit the old Inghamite graveyard with a very patient hubby and baby in tow.  It was a bit wet and windy - they must have bred them tougher in the old days! 

Thanks again,

Jo.

Hi, I believe that I am a direct descendant of Hezekiah (my  great great grandad) and Thomas (great grandad).  I live I  the village where they farmed at New House and my son attends the school that Thomas sent his 2 boys (Thomas and Clifford) and Clifford went on to send his 2 boys - Duncan and Ian (my father).
I even have a photo of Hezekiah somewhere.
Would be great if you got in touch.
Regards
Jackie Swire

Jo - this familytree - it includes your family 200 years later - this is the earliest
Robert Swire born 1619 or 1620 in Addingham ,Yorkshire

https://gw.geneanet.org/lalanbirt?lang=en&pz=living&nz=king&ocz=9&p=robert&n=swire

and the English Civil War started 1642 - so at the age of 21/22 I presume Robert fought in that War
