Hi, I also have Cunninghams and Swales in my family,they traveled around Yorkshire and the north east,and some of them [my grandmothers family]ended up in Scotland and as you say married into travelers from Scotland,also the Forrests and Varey.The familys seemed to marry into the same familys over the generations, Ive came across a few pattisons,morrisons and Burnsides,but it is a nightmare trying to find them on census returns. magpie28

Hi,
My grandmother was Mabel Swales born at Pickering, I believe her dad was William Swales and her mother possibly Margaret Adams from Middlesborough? I know my Swales family has strong links with kirby Moorside and Pickering. I believe I have grandparents born at Kirby Moorside. My grandmother Mabel married James Hall, they lived alot at Knaresborough, they had children Elizabeth Hall, Jane Hall, James Hall and William Hall. I know my grandmother had sisters,  Violet who lived at Malton, Margaret who lived at York, can't remember other names. Sorry if I seem abit unsure it is my first time on this site.  :)

Hi

I have members of the 'Swales' family in my tree.  Through Ann Davey b. 1828  -  N.Cave.
Ann  married Robert Swales b.1826 - Kirkbymoorside.

Does anyone know if the Ann came from a 'travelling family' ??

Hi,
not sure if Robert is related. My grandmother Mabel swales was born at Pickering, I have recieved information her father was William Swales and her mother was Margaret Adams. William swales dad was James Swales and his mother Mabel Busfield. Margaret Adams Mother is John Adams and mother is Christiana (maiden name not known). My Swales family are from Pickering and Kirby Moorside and where ever else they moved to,
Regards Janice

Hi everyone,

Just googled for Swales family history and come across these posts.   My great grandmother was Christiana Swales born in Pickering 1871 the daugher of Mark Swales and Elizabeth Stephenson.  Mark's parents were James  Swales and Mabel Busfield.  Am currently doing this line in my Tree on Ancestry and trying to sort out the two James Swales born Kirkby Moorside 1816 and 1817.  The Swales seem to have all been hawkers, potters or earthenware dealers and intermarried amongst themselves together with the Busfield, Adams and obviously a few other families.  I find this

line absolutely intriguing and mind boggling when trying to put them all together.
