*COMPLETED* John Swann - Freeman of York
« on: Friday 23 September 11 15:47 BST (UK) »
Any information regarding a John Swann, born 1801, died 5 April 1868 in York. His occupation was butcher and he was a Freeman of York but I cannot find any information about him. The only record I have found is his death record.

Apparently he was married twice, his second marriage being to his housekeeper. This marriage caused a great rift in the family and on his death, it was found that he had disinherited his children in favour of his second wife.

The only child I have found is William Swann born 1829 in York.

No Liz, I haven't seen a will. The information I have came from his great great grand-daughter in Australia. Unfortunately, she herself is now dead so I can't get anything else.

I do have a picture of his gravestone so I know his date of death and I have the death record.

Thanks anyway.
