  • Notes 
    • Admitted to Boston church 6 Jan 1639; dismissed to Rowley church 24 Nov 1639.

      A no-longer-extant entry on RootsWeb indicated that he was baptized 23 Dec 1607 at Gilberdike, Yorkshire, in terms that implied that the writer had viewed the pertinent parish register. This is plausible; Gilberdike is literally only five miles west-southwest of North Cave, where Richard Swan married Anna Spofford.
