Jane Swinney abt 1837-1920 b. ware herts daughter of Ann Pearson
« on: Sunday 28 April 13 20:02 BST (UK) »
Hi

I am trying to find out who Jane Swinney's father was. Edward Swinney b. Ware(1800-1859)married Ann Pearson b. 1794-1872in January 1822. Jane is one of 9 children, however, all the baptism records state that Edward did not father any of these children. Ann is recorded as a married woman who's children are not her husbands.
Edward is recorded on one of the baptism records that he was a soldier in the war (not sure what war this is) and was in America. Ann named all her children Swinney but not one of her children was in fact Edwards.
The only baptism record I cannot find is Jane Swinney. I wonder if you can help please. I would really like to know /confirm who Jane's father was. Would I have to buy a birth certificate to confirm this??
Many thanks
