That is the CASWALL line. Completely different to the Wiltshire Caswell line. Not related - been there - done that.

THE WILL OF ROBERT CASWELL 1820
Noted at Marshalls' War*

Robert Caswell of Yatesbury

To John Washbourne of Yatesbury, William Brown of Broad Hinton and Thomas
Chandler of Heytesbury my freehold manor and reported ****,messuages , farm,
lands, etc in Rodbourne Cheney, Wilts to hold etc for the use for life of my neice Ann the wife of Francis Stephen Long of Boreham. Upon trust and after her decease to the use of Robert Caswell Long second son of my said neice. To trustees further 6000 pounds interest of which for the use of Susannah, wife of George John Bannister of Warminster, banker, another neice and aftds for her second son.residue for children of two neices.

Signed 19 May 1819
Proved PCC 22 Oct 1820

Record found in the Everett Papers (Wills 1) Devizes Museum.

Inside the Yatesbury church on a plaque made by Harrisons of Devizes , under the bell tower:-
'To the memory of Robert Caswell, who died 18th June 1819 aged 55 years - by his nieces Anne LONG and Susanna BANNISTER".
At this time 30 pounds per annum was a good allowance for a gentleman , so 6000 pounds would be worth approx 300,000 pounds in 1996. A very tidy sum!
