Wow thanks for the info especially Cherilyn & alviegal!!
This is great now I have lots of info to be going on. I was particulaly trying to find the names of Jacks parents as I was trying to ascertain if he was a descendant of a English convict Samuel Swain 1806 - 1870 (who there has been a book written about) which is what we were lead to believe. I can now use the family info to check that as I have the names of the children of Samue.

Thankyou very very much for all the time you've spent on this its so helpful!!

Regards from a beautiful sunny day in Yorkshire England. (we dont get many of these!! ha ha!!)
Cathie Swain :-D

You're welcome Cathie. I wish you luck in your quest. I'm sure you must have this but just in case. They were both listed as innkeepers.

All the info I was sent by you very kind people has now enabled me to definately confirm that my pen friend is related to the infamous convict Samuel Swain 1803 - 1870 (as in the book and utube).

Thankyou all very much indeed

Thanks again alviegal - for some reason I assumed you must be in Oz ha ha!

My pen friend in Australia has the same name as me and it was my idea to see if I could find a link between our familes. She also didnt know if she was related to Samuel Swain but I now know (with your help) that she definately is. Im now going to look at , making us distant cousins.

Beat wishes
