  • Notes 
    • Youngest son of John Swinnerton, Lord Mayor of London.

      E. H. Martin (citation details below) states both that Thomas Swinnerton died in 1627 (p. 318) and also that he died at the battle of Naseby, on the royalist side, in 1645 (p. 320). Shropshire in the Civil War by Terry Bracher and Roger Emmett (Shropshire Books, 2000) records a "Captain Swynnerton" being taken prisoner by Parliamentarian forces under Sir Thomas Myddleton on 3 Jul 1644, as they defeated an attempt by Royalist calvalry under Colonel Marrow to recapture Oswestry (!).

      The London and Middlesex Notebook (citation details below) says "He was living 28 Jun 1627, at which date he sold the estate of Stanway."
