    WILLIAM CUNNINGHAM - (1816-1854) William was known as a family-oriented-man plus an astute, gentleman-farmer in the Rock Island community. What is remarkable about William's life-story is that he spoke for what he believed to be right, honorable, just and noble yet suffered the ultimate sacrifice. (See source document, SECRET IDENTITY, by Mary Carol Rucker Estes)

    At his untimely death in 1854, just days after celebrating his 38th birthday, William's seven children ranged in age from only 3 months (James Monroe Cunningham) to age 14 (Sarah Elizabeth Cunningham). William is to be remembered for his courage of conviction, his devotion to family and his life's work on earth.

  1. 4.  John Cunningham, Sr. was born 13 Sep 1782, Commonwealth of Virginia (son of John Cunningham and Keziah Chandler); died 12 Oct 1858, Warren County, Tennessee; was buried Cunningham Cemetery, Rock Island, Warren County, Tennessee.

    Other Events:

    • Occupation: farmer & merchant
    • Also Known As: John "Rock Island" Cunningham
    • Also Known As: John Cunningham, II
    • Military: War of 1812 Veteran
    • Alt Birth: 13 Sep 1781

    Notes:

    April 10, 2015: ( ) = educated quess...

    There is no absolute proof of John's kiinship to John & Keziah. I wanted to assign John to John because of several CUNNINGHAM DNA kinships being reported by FamilyTreeDNA.org, however:

    Additionally, some people have speculated that John Cunningham (1792-1858, War of 1812) is the son of John Cunningham (1792-1858 Rev. War) and his first wife Mary Hill Pettipool in Virginia after they were married in 1771. There are two major abnormalities with this proposal:

    #1 -John Cunningham was born ca 1792 based on his later Federal census and War of 1812 pension application. Mary Hill Pettipool died ca 1774 in VA. (Side Note: Mary Hill Pettipool never lived and she did not die in Viola, Warren, TN in 1774 as listed on many Ancestry.com family sites.) John's birth about 18 years after her death is simply not possible.

    #2 - The will of John Cunningham (Viola, Rev. War) lists all of his children by name, from both marriages, and John Cunningham (Rock Island, War of 1812) is not listed.

    In summary, the "overwhelming preponderance of evidence" suggests there is no direct family connection between the two John Cunningham progenitors.

    *For more information on this family, contact, Mac Cunningham at who writes, Saturday, December 03, 2011 4:35:23 PM;

    John Cunningham II (1792-1858) was known during the early 19th Century in White and Warren Counties, TN as a Christian, Husband, Father, Pioneer, Patriot, Farmer, Tanner, Carpenter, Blacksmith, Distiller, Democrat and Grandfather.

    There are a number of newspaper accounts, family trees, etc. which speculate that John Cunningham II (Captain in War of 1812) of Rock Island, Warren, TN is a son of another John Cunningham (Rev. War Soldier) of Viola, Warren, TN. Yet, the two communities, Rock Island and Viola, are at opposite ends of Warren county. Regretfully, the speculations appear incorrect due to the lack of "original source" documents and "first person" accounts.

    The two John Cunninghams, in their individual migration to opposite ends of Warren County, TN, apparently used two different routes, separated by over a decade of time. (John II of Rock Island migrated from VA about 1804-1810 yet John of Viola moved with his second wife and family from NC about 1822). Some people believe that John II of Rock Island is perhaps one of the sons of John of Viola first marriage in Virginia. However, John of Viola's Last Will and Testament lists all his children by name (in Virginia and Tennessee- including one deceased) from both marriages and John Cunningham II of Rock Island is not listed.

    As of October 2009, there are no known original source genealogy documentation (e.g. wills, land transfers, Family Bible, court records, etc.) nor genetic DNA test results which connect John Cunningham of Rock Island (Haplogroup I2b1) with John Cunningham of Viola.

    In summary, the "overwhelming preponderance of evidence" indicates there is no direct family connection between the two John Cunninghams. However, the on-going search for the parents of John Cunningham II of Rock Island, Warren, TN continues with renewed energy and determination.

    There are four historical-based "leads" requiring additional research:

    (1) 1812 Tax List for Warren County
    (2) The Blanche Bently papers as recorded in McMinnville at a Milestone, by Walter Womack, lists a JOHN CUNNINGHAM at Rock Island as an early settler ca 1797 in Rock Island, Warren County, TN.
    (3) Goodspeeds History of Tennessee - Warren County, Highlights a {First name unknown}, CUNNINGHAM from VA who served in the Rev. War, father of John Cunningham II of Rock Island, Warren, TN (Captain in the War of 1812).
    (4) http://www.tngnetweb.org/white/_minutes/1814-211.html page 211 includes an example of early court records in White County, TN listing JOHN CUNNINGHAM and others by name involved in land proceedings.

    David, it was nice to talk to you last week. As I told you I have had a serious back injury and am just now feeling like sitting very long at the computer.

    After I talked to you I thought of something else that would verify that the father of "John Cunningham of Rock Island" was also named John. However I feel like that I have proved without a doubt that it is not "John Cunningham of Viola".

    As I mentioned to you The 1812 Tax list has John Cunningham and Jon Cunnigan. We know that John Cunningham settled in the Rock Island area very early. He married in White county 1813, so most likely he and his father Jon Cunnigan probably were here together before he married. (This part I am getting from county records.)

    In Goodspeed"s "History of Warren County" The article about John Cunningham was written by his son, George. It doesn't mention the name of John's father, but says he served in the Revolutionary War.

    John and Sarah Jane's youngest son was also named John. He married Martha Qualls Greenfield. Son, John died in 1862 leaving his wife and four small children. After his death Martha married Hamlet Woods. That marriage ended in divorce. She then married Mr. Anderson. Martha died and is buried in Riverside cemetery. Her tombstone reads like this.

    "Martha Q. Greenfield, Wife of John Cunningham III. Oct. 24 1835 Mar.11 1919"

    Warren County death records has "Martha Anderson"

    So this is another proof that there were three Johns in that family. But in no way does it indicate that "Viola John Cunningham" was in that family line. As I told you I have court records listing all of the children of John and Kiziah Cunningham and there is no mention of a son, John. Their son, Langston had a son, John Jr. He was administrator of Langston's estate. Jr. did not mean it was the name of the father. Many times a father would name their son after his father, a brother or even an uncle. If the baby was the second one in that family with that name he would be a Jr. I don't think I ever did convince Mary Barnes of this.

    I hope I have helped you some on this, not confused you more.

    I"m looking forward to seeing you next time you visit McMinnville.

James founded the Old Swindle College in Barry Co., MO, near Wheaton, Missouri. in 1855.


    Hi Charles,
    The obit is as follows and the paper has a picture of James Swindle and second Wife Elizabeth Gibson/ Davidson.
    "While the Butterfield Overland Stage was the first stage coach to haul regular passengers and mail on a regular schedule through Barry Co to the West Coast it was by not means the only state route through Barry County.
    Following the Civil War several other stage routes sprang up throughout the county including one from Pierce City to Fayetteville which came down the western side of Barry Co.
    The home of James Swindle of Wheaton which served as a stage coach stop for the Pierce City to Fayetteville route was built shortly after the war by Swindle who had been born in 1822 in Linden, Perry County, Tennessee on the Swindle Prong of Cedar Creek.
    A most industrious young man, James Swindle made a wagon for oxen, and everything belonging to it, bows for cover, and yoke for the oxen, loaded his property and set out for southwest Missouri in 1851. He came then to Barry County and during the Civil War was a blacksmith at Cassville. He was married first to Eliza Fly on August 19, 1852 and had Martha (Mrs. Jim Parks), John (Professor at Swindle College), LaFayette (A minister in the Christian Church), George, and Eliza (Mrs. Robert Carter Overton). After his first wife died in 1863 in the middle of the war, he remarried in 1866 to Mrs. Elizabeth Davidson and there were three children born to this union. Twins - Abe (at one time Tax Assessor and Collector for Barry County), Nannie (married Dr. Oscar Overton) and Mary Francis (married Dr. Jim Holmes). James Swindle died at his home at Corsicana on August 2, 1909.
    The Swindle home which was torn down in 1905 had five fire places and its large commodious rooms provided refuge for many a weary traveler of the rough roads of that era.
    Perhaps the most notable achievement of the Swindle family was the found of "Swindle College" Their son, Professor John Swindle, who started a subscription school on their premises in the early 1880's and erected the Swindle College Building in the year 1885 or 1886. Beginning with the first grade, courses were taught which would compare with those of the higher college levels. Courses in advanced mathematics and literature were taught by John Swindle, who won acclaim as a scholar at the University of Kentucky. Many young people boarded at the Swindle home while attending school at Swindle College down through the years. It was located two miles south of Corsicana at a spring after crossing Pogue's Creek. The college was located on a hill near the residence.
    Swindle College in later years suffered the fate of many rural academies, becoming a consolidated school with Wheaton, and in 1955 the building was sold to Gray McMillen and was moved to his farm. The old bell which summoned generations of students to the study of the three R's is still in the belfry, and were it to be rung today within the hearing of its former teachers and pupils, there would doubtless be a strong pull of the listener heartstrings as they recalled the past chapters in the history of the sturdy old school.
    Recently a great-great nephew of James Swindle, Tracy David Cary, President of the Pampa Genealogical Society of Pampa, TX visited the old landmarks of his family here compiling data from the cemetery, Bible, county and school records of the Swindle Family. He would appreciate any additional information.
    {Article written in July 1960} Corsicana was in Barry Co but destroyed by a tornado and never rebuilt.

    #10-- James Cunningham of Robinson Fork of the Meherrin River

    (Note: Courtesy of Diana Dobbins. Below is an excerpt from a 1992 history book by Neil L. Cunningham, Nashville TN. Annotations by A.M. Cunningham, 2009)

    Sometime during the mid 1700's, another James Cunningham obtained a large tract of land near where Robinson Creek runs into the Meherrin River. This property today is in Brunswick County, about four miles southeast of Lawrenceville, VA.

    This James, whose wife was Jane Scott, acquired 354 acres in 1749 and 421 acres in 1762, and at his death in 1762, had an estate of 774 acres. There are no records available to connect this James Cunningham with either the Cub Creek Cunninghams or the Prince Edward County Cunninghams. In fact, the plantation that James owned on Robinson Creek was about 50 miles from Cub Creek or Spring Creek. However, as you will see later, a strange set of circumstances occur which raises questions about the relationship of Robinson Creek James and John 4 of Spring Creek.

    James and Jane Scott Cunningham had three sons living at his death, John, William and James, Jr., all minors, and he left all three large tracts of land, which were placed under guardians. James, Jr. died before the estate was settled and the land was divided between William and John. John married Mary Hill Pettypool in 1771 and they had two sons, James and William.

    In 1772, John sold the land he had inherited from his father to his brother William. Mary Hill Pettypool died in 1774 and there are no further records of their two small children, William and James. John became a soldier in the Revolutionary War in 1776 and served until 1781.

    In 1782, he married Keziah Chandler, and they had 10 children. In his pension application for Revolutionary War service, which was granted, John stated he was born on Feb. 10, 1748 in Lunenburg County, Va., and lived there for 31 years (until 1779), then lived five years in Charlotte County, Va. (until 1784), and then moved to Wilkes County, N. C. where he lived 35 or 36 years (until 1819/20), then moved to Warren County, Tenn.

    John died in Warren County on Dec. 18, 1842 near Viola at about the age of 94. He and his wife, who died in 1839, are buried in the family cemetery at Viola. John's brother William stayed in Virginia and died there.

    If Revolutionary War John's memory was correct in his pension application and `QDSQA1 he did not move to Warren County, Tenn. until 1819/20, then several of his children already had settled in Warren County by that time. One son, John Cunningham, came into Warren County about 1809/10 and settled near Rock Island. He obtained 100 acres in a grant which included the land where the Rock Island Dam now stands. At that time, it was called the "great falls of Caney Fork River." This John married Sally Jane Swindle, formerly of Hyde County, N. C. He served two years (Note: Actually six months-Nov 13, 1814 to May 13, 1815-AMC) in the War of 1812 and participated in the Battle of New Orleans under General Andrew Jackson. James and Mary Cunningham were descendants of this Cunningham family. Mary Cunningham was one of the founders of the Magness Memorial Library in McMinnville and served as librarian for 46 years. The military service of this branch of this Cunningham family continued because James and Mary's son won the Congressional Medal of Honor for outstanding bravery in combat in World War I. (Note: No Medal of Honor record found to support this statement-AMC)

    Now to the mystery. James Cunningham of Robertson Fork on the Meherrin River lived 50 miles from John IV Cunningham of Prince Edward County in the mid 1700s. James children and grandchildren lived in Virginia for awhile, then moved to North Carolina and finally settled in Rock Island, Tenn. (Note: Viola not Rock Island, TN-AMC)

    John IV's children and grandchildren lived in Prince Edward and Pittsylvania Counties in Virginia; Hawkins and Claiborne Counties in Tennessee, then about 1809/10, settled in Irving College in Warren County, Tennessee. The two families arrived in Warren County about the same time from two completely different routes and settled only about 10 miles apart. Coincidence, or were they related. We probably will never know. (Note:

    There are actually three John Cunningham families in Warren County ca. 1810 located at:

    {1} Rock Island
    {2} Viola and
    {3} Irving College.

    All originated in the state of Virginia before migrating to Tennessee. Full 67 markers yDNA testing is recommended for male descendents of all three John Cunningham families. It appears they have the same surname but perhaps different genetic heritage.-AMC)

CALEB's will dated 26 November 1790, probated February Court 1791, mentions wife, ELIZABETH, and sons, CHRISTOPHER and CASON SWINDELL. His will dictated that the remaider of the estate should be equally divided between his children after the death of his wife, ELIZABETH.

    In a 1791 division of the remaider of the estate, his wife, ELIZABETH, received one-third and his heirs JESSE HARRIS, SR., THOMAS HARRIS, CHRISTOPHER SWINDELL, JAMES MASON, JESSE HARRIS, JR., ELIZABETH HARRIS, SUSANNA CARAWAN, JOHN BENSON, AND CASON SWINDELL received the remaining two-thirds divided into equal lots.

    Since we know that CASON and CHRISTOPHER were his sons, this equal distribution indicates that the others were his daughters and sons-in-law in right of their wives."

    I HAVE THIS IN MY DATA MAYBE IT WILL HELP.

    5. John Swindle, Sr. was born on 3/20/1676 in Rappanock (Farnham Parish),
    Richmond Co., Virginia. He died before 1772 in Hyde Co., North Carolina.
    John married Mary McPherson (daughter of William McPherson Sr.) about 1696
    in Lower Norfolk, Currtuck Co., Virginia. Mary McPherson died between
    3/2/1747 and 9/2/1751. She was born in Virginia (possibly NC or Scotland).
    John Swindle Sr. and Mary McPherson had at least the following children:

    5A. Timothy Swindle that married Rebecca Crees (See 6th Generation below)

    5B. John Swindle, Jr. was born 1723 in Albemaire,Hyde Co NC. He died 1775
    in Hyde Co NC. He married Rebecca Harris that was born 1726 Hyde Co NC
    before 1748.

    5C. Josiah Swindle, Sr. was born 1732 in Albemarie, Hyde Co NC. He married
    Esther Balance (born about 1732-died about 1810 NC) in 1776. Josiah
    Swindle, apparently a carpenter by trade, died about 1806 in Hyde Co NC.

    Note: There may have been another child: Parker Swindle, b. 1732,
    Albemarie, Hyde Co., NC; d. abt 1806, Hyde County, NC.


    Notes for JOHN SWINDELL: Ellen Mitchell, researcher in Hyde CO. N.C. indicated that there was no will for John Swindell 1, but there was an Estate Record in Hyde CO. VOl-1 part 1, about 1722. She also indicated that his son Zedekiah's birth record was recorded in Pasquotank Co., N.C. (Pasquotank was a precinct of Albemarle Co, then.)
    Records indicate that John purchased many different farms from 1729-1765 and sold some as well. These usually were from 100 acres to 1000 acres. He must have accumulated about 5,000 acres of land. Much of this land, was of little cost, and some for 'quitrents'.
    1757 Dec. 7 Hyde Co. N.C. : John Swindell, planter, with love and affection to Josiah Swindell, Son, 150 acre plantation in Mattamuskette. Witness Benjamin Mason and Stephen Denning.

    Hello Dave,

    I enjoyed visiting with you and reading your files. I offer the following information on Caleb which prompted my posting on the genforum to begin with:

    from the book entitled: " Hyde County NC Court Minutes and Orphans Book, Book II."

    Registration of Deeds by John Swindall to his sons Dec. 1757-Mar 1758 Quarter Sessions Page 11.

    John Swindall to his son Caleb Swindall for 240 acres
    John Swindall to his son Zedekiah Swindall for 100 acres
    John Swindall to his son Josiah Swindall for 150 acres
    John Swindall to his son William Swindall for 150 acres
    John Swindall to William Turner for 160 acres (could this be a son-in-law?)

    Court Session 1763 Page (97)-49:

    "3 Deeds from John Swindall, one to Caleb Swindall for 150 acres of Land and One to Joseph Swindall Son o(sic) Caleb Swindall for 65 acres of land, the other to Zedekiah Swindall for 200 acres of land Exhibited into Court and acknowledged by the said John Swindall to be by him duely Executd. They are Ordered to be Registered."

    (160)-25 August Term 1785:
    On motion John Swindal is Appointed by the court Guardien to William Swindal Orphan of William Swindal Decd. and Entered into bond in the sum of fifty pounds David Spencer and William Spencer his Securitys ordered that Letters of Tuition Issue.

    My Note: Caleb Swindall had a son named Joseph?
    From the book entitled " (OLD) Rappahannock County Orders 1689-1692", p.195 Rappahannock County Court 7th of January 1690/1:

    -Ordered that James Samford take in to his Custody all & singular the Estate of TIMO. SWINDALL late deced on behalfe & for the use of the Orphans of the sd SWINDALL and that he returne an act. thereof under his hands in writing to the next Court held for this County.

    In another entry (which I can't locate at the moment) John Swindall appeared in court to ask that he be released from James Samford. Court refused the request.

    From the book entitled "The Registers of North Farnham Parish 1663-1814 and Lunenburg Parrish 1783-1800 Richmond County, Virginia" the following birth is recorded:

    Swindall, John son of Timothy and Sarah Swindall, 20 March 1676

    My Note: appears that Timothy died when John was about 14 yrs of age. John is the only Swindall who's birth is recorded in this book but the above order uses the plural term "orphans".

    Yes it's me, and I'm still looking! In the book entitled "Hyde County Court Minutes and Orphans Book 1756-1785 Book II" I find the following entry:

    1763 Term (97)-49
    "3 Deeds from John Swindall, one to Caleb SWINDALL for 150 Acres of Land and One to Joseph SWINDALL Son o(sic) Caleb SWINDALL for sixtyfive Acres of Land, the other to Zedeciah SWINDALL for 200 Acres of Land Exhibited into Court and acknowledged by the said John SWINDALL to be by him Duely Executd. they are Ordered to be Registered."
    END
    --------------
    This indicates that Caleb had a son named Joseph. Would it also indicate that he had a wife before Keziah?
    -------------
    In the same book is listed another entry:

    Dec. 1757-Mar. 1758 Term

    (12)-195
    Deed from John SWINDALL to his Son Caleb Swindall for 240 acres of Land, etc.
    Deed from John Swindall to his Son Zedekiah Swindall for 100 acres of Land, etc.
    Deed from John Swindall to his son Josiah Swindall for 150 acres of land, etc.
    Deed from John Swindall to his son William Swindall for 150 Acres of Land, etc.
    Deed from John Swindall to William Turner for 160 Acres of Land, etc.
    Deeds Ordered to be Registered. (no mention of where the land was located)
    END
    ---------------
    Could William Turner be a son-in-law?
    I know there is a John Swindall Jr. but he was not listed in this entry.

    Can anyone shed light on the son Joseph, of Caleb or on the William Turner who received land from John Swindall?
    Thanks, Esther

    Notes:

    Swindle Family compiled by Bill Brackett

    The Swindle name is believed to be English. It is said to mean "one who came from Swindale" a chapelry in the parish of Shap in northern England’s county of Westmoreland. The original meaning of the name is thought to be derived from a dale or dell where swine were raised or perhaps a haunt of wild boars.

    The family claims a coat of arms, which has a boar’s head and two crossed blue swords with gold hilts on a silver shield.

    In records I have seen that there was a William Swindell who was born before 1584 in England and was killed in an Indian massacre in Virginia. He died on Captain Berkley's plantation about 60 miles from Jamestown, Virginia in 1624. His last named is spelled Swandal in these records.

    In Cheshire, England on 08 Oct 1578 a William Swyndles married Margery Barber. On 10 Dec 1598 in Cheshire, England a William Swindles married Izabell Hiberte. On 29 May 1610 in Cheshire England a William Swindles married Elizabeth Mallbone.

    There are several others by this name in Cheshire. William Swindles and Isabell Hiberte had sons, Thomas Swindle and Daniel Swindle.

    In a muster taken 30 Jan 1624 there is a Thomas Swinhow (Swindell) who was reported as having arrived on the "Diana" and living in the main of the Corporation of James City, Virginia.

    There was a Thomas Swindell who arrived in Westmoreland County, Virginia in 1654. It has been indicated that Thomas Swindell moved to the eastern shore of Virginia.

    There was also a Daniel Swindell in this same area as mentioned as tithables in that county in 1666.

    Thomas Swindell had a son named John Swindell who married the daughter of George Willis. George Willis gave the couple a cow in 1668. John and ... (Willis) Swindell lived in North Hampton, Virginia and he died in North Carolina 1750.

    Thomas Swindell, who arrived in Westmoreland County, Virginia in 1654, was an indentured servant and John Walton and John Baynol who were Virginian “Planters” paid his transport. John Swindell was still on the eastern shore of Virginia as late as 1700 when he witnessed the will of John Tilney of Nassawaddox.

    In 1702 John Swindell moved into Bath County, North Carolina and in that same year proved headrights to 240 acres. This John Swindell may have been the father to Thomas Swindell.

    In 1729 there was a Thomas Swindell who was a cooper from Beauford Precinct of Bath County North Carolina. Thomas Swindell purchased 100 acres on the north side of the Pamlico River from James Singleton.

    There was a Timothy Swindle in Culpeper County, Virginia in the 1770's. This area of Virginia was settled by Germans, but it is believed that this Timothy Swindle was not of German ancestry. Timothy Swindle married Rebecca Crease (Crees, Crest, Criece, Greys) who was clearly German. Rebecca Crease's family was from Wurttemberg in what was to become Germany. Timothy and Rebecca Swindle had children:

    Sarah Swindle m. Frederick Baumgardner
    Michael Swindle m. Elizabeth Utz
    John Swindle m. Hannah Weaver
    George Swindle m. Hannah Cornelius
    Rebecca Swindle m. John Fray

    It is obvious that the Swindle family came from England possibly as early as 1619. They settled in Virginia, moved into North Carolina by 1702, into Tennessee by 1815 and later into Arkansas by 1860.

    A Mary Swindell was named in the will (recorded November Court 1777, Norfolk Co, VA) of a William McPherson as his sister. Other siblings named in this will were brothers

    Andrew,
    Daniel, and
    John.

    I believe, but do not yet have more than circumstantial evidence, that the above-named individuals were the grandchildren (or perhaps great-grandchildren) of the Daniel Mackafarson who left a will recorded in Norfolk Co, VA, in March 1696/97 in which he named as his heirs his sons Daniel and Andrew.

    The following information is related to Tithables in Joseph Looney's Company in Botetourt County, VA in 1783. The list includes: Thomas Middleton, Thomas Middleton, Jr., Jacob Middleton, John Middleton, and Walter Middleton.


    Stoner, Robert Douthat. A Seed-Bed of the Republic: A Study of the Pioneers of the Upper (Southern) Valley of Virginia. Roanoke, VA: Roanoke Historical Society, 1962.

    Notes on tithables and taxes in Botetourt County, VA.
    p. 229
    “Tithables” in Virginia were white males over sixteen years of years of age, male and female slaves over sixteen years, bond servants over sixteen. The tax, which was a poll tax, was called a “tithe,” which did not mean one-tenth. This poll tax was laid by the General Assembly for carrying on war, for salaries to certain officials, buildings like state houses, and for general public use, and was collected by the sheriff. Poll tax could be levied by county courts for building courthouses, bridges, roads and other local purposes.”
    pp. 232-233
    “By 1783, the report of tithables had been enlarged to include not only the number of tithables but the number of cattle, horses and slaves owned by each, and a list submitted by Joseph Looney containing that information, shows the names submitted him to be:

    Notes:

    Notes for THOMAS SWINDELL: Thomas SWINDLE was born in 1604 in North Hampton, Virginia. He died about 1669 in Rappanoch, Richmond Co., Virginia. from Richard Payne Spencer's research.......Mormon records. HIGH TIDES Historical Society editors vol. 8 no. 2 Hyde Co., NC. states that the first Swindell to arrive in the Virginia Colony, was Thomas Swinhow. In a muster taken 30 Jan. 1624, he is reported as having arrived on the "Diana" and living in the Maine of the Corporation of James City.

    In a circa 1626 listing of the Corporation of Charles City, Thomas (Swindle) Swinhow held 300 acres by patent. He was later in 1638, listed as 'kilt by Indians . However, a Thomas Swindell was one of 78 people who arrived safely in Westmorland County, VA. in 1654. An indentured servant, he was transported by John Walton and John Baynal, VA. planters.

    Research indicates that Thomas Swindell moved across the bay to North Hampton County on the Eastern shore of VA. He and a Daniel Swindell were related, possibly as Father and Son, and both are mentioned as tiltable in that county in 1666.

    Thomas Swindell had a son, John Swindell, who married the daughter of George Willis. Old North Hampton County, VA. records show that George Willis gave the couple a cow in 1668, a substantial gift for that time period.

    A Thomas Swindell was one of 78 people who arrived safely in Westmorland County, VA. in 1654. An indentured servant, he was transported by John Walton and John Baynal, VA. planters; 1729 Thomas Swindell, Cooper, of Beaufort Precinct, Bath Co. N.C. purchased 100 acres on the north side of the Pamlico River from James Singleton........

    Check out the Swindell of Cheshire County, England as there is a Hyde twp there containing several Swindells of similar names....... He had over 300 acres by patent; 02/25/1660 Thomas Swindle was in Northhampton, Va and was granted 400 acres of land. (Virginia Land Records, p. 379)

    Swindle Family

    compiled by Bill Brackett

    The Swindle name is believed to be English. It is said to mean "one who came from Swindale" a chapelry in the parish of Shap in northern England’s county of Westmoreland. The original meaning of the name is thought to be derived from a dale or dell where swine were raised or perhaps a haunt of wild boars.

    The family claims a coat of arms, which has a boar’s head and two crossed blue swords with gold hilts on a silver shield.

    In records I have seen that there was a William Swindell who was born before 1584 in England and was killed in an Indian massacre in Virginia. He died on Captain Berkley's plantation about 60 miles from Jamestown, Virginia in 1624. His last named is spelled Swandal in these records.

    In Cheshire, England on 08 Oct 1578 a William Swyndles married Margery Barber. On 10 Dec 1598 in Cheshire, England a William Swindles married Izabell Hiberte. On 29 May 1610 in Cheshire England a William Swindles married Elizabeth Mallbone. There are several others by this name in Cheshire. William Swindles and Isabell Hiberte had sons, Thomas Swindle and Daniel Swindle.

    In a muster taken 30 Jan 1624 there is a Thomas Swinhow (Swindell) who was reported as having arrived on the "Diana" and living in the main of the Corporation of James City, Virginia. There was a Thomas Swindell who arrived in Westmoreland County, Virginia in 1654. It has been indicated that Thomas Swindell moved to the eastern shore of Virginia. There was also a Daniel Swindell in this same area as mentioned as tithables in that county in 1666. Thomas Swindell had a son named John Swindell who married the daughter of George Willis. George Willis gave the couple a cow in 1668. John and ... (Willis) Swindell lived in North Hampton, Virginia and he died in North Carolina 1750. Thomas Swindell, who arrived in Westmoreland County, Virginia in 1654, was an indentured servant and John Walton and John Baynol who were Virginian “Planters” paid his transport. John Swindell was still on the eastern shore of Virginia as late as 1700 when he witnessed the will of John Tilney of Nassawaddox.

    In 1702 John Swindell moved into Bath County, North Carolina and in that same year proved headrights to 240 acres. This John Swindell may have been the father to Thomas Swindell. In 1729 there was a Thomas Swindell who was a cooper from Beauford Precinct of Bath County North Carolina. Thomas Swindell purchased 100 acres on the north side of the Pamlico River from James Singleton.

    There was a Timothy Swindle in Culpeper County, Virginia in the 1770's. This area of Virginia was settled by Germans, but it is believed that this Timothy Swindle was not of German ancestry. Timothy Swindle married Rebecca Crease (Crees, Crest, Criece, Greys) who was clearly German. Rebecca Crease's family was from Wurttemberg in what was to become Germany. Timothy and Rebecca Swindle had children:

    Sarah Swindle m. Frederick Baumgardner
    Michael Swindle m. Elizabeth Utz
    John Swindle m. Hannah Weaver
    George Swindle m. Hannah Cornelius
    Rebecca Swindle m. John Fray

    It is obvious that the Swindle family came from England possibly as early as 1619. They settled in Virginia, moved into North Carolina by 1702, into Tennessee by 1815 and later into Arkansas by 1860.
